Alternative Therapy to Dialysis for End Stage Diabetic Nephropathy

Posted: by Dr.Zhao      Time: 2015-05-03 09:18

Topics: Diabetic Nephropathy Dialysis

Details: My mother is suffering from renal failure due to diabetes. She is 70 years old, and the doctor suggests dialysis. Is there any alternative therapy to dialysis for her?

Expert Answer

As we all know, kidney transplant is one common alternative therapy to dialysis. Kidney transplant is one effective therapy for patients with end stage kidney failure, because it can provide a chance for these patients to live a brand new life. However, compared with other types of chronic kidney diseases, the outcome of kidney transplant isn’t so satisfying for patients with Diabetic Nephropathy.

If your mother still has urine and certain kidney function, they can try some other therapies to improve their kidney condition and overall health condition.

The one is Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. This therapy can prompt the recovery of impaired kidney and pancreatic cells. Once kidneys and pancreas can do their work normally, patients don’t need to worry about their safety any more.

The other one is Stem Cell Therapy. Through applying the theory of stem cell, this therapy can differentiate into new kidney cells and replace damaged kidney cells to work.

Different patients need to take different therapies. To determine which therapy your mother can take, we should know her creatinine level, GFR level, urine output, and some other health condition.
