Should Patients with Stage 4 Kidney Failure Prepare for Dialysis

Details: My husband has reached stage 4 kidney failure. Is he nearing the end of life? Should He Prepare for Dialysis?

Expert Answer

Stage 4 kidney failure is often accompanied by many discomforts and problems. Maybe, your husband has high blood pressure, proteinuria, swelling, hematuria, anemia, muscle cramps, and so on. All of these are due to low kidney function level, as kidneys are only functioning at 15%~29% at stage 4.

However, stage 4 kidney failure isn’t the end stage kidney disease, so most patients in this condition don’t need to prepare for dialysis unless they have severe complications. From the above analysis, we can know your husband still has chance to avoid dialysis. Please, build up your confidence. This is because as long as his illness condition is managed very well, he can still live for long time.

In this case, the key of the whole treatment is to protect the remaining kidney functioning tissues and repair damaged kidney cells. With 3,000 years’ history, traditional Chinese medicine shows a great superiority on treating chronic kidney disease. Chinese medicines can increase the blood flow into kidneys, regulate blood circulation, and prompt the recovery of damaged kidney cells, so patients can get a lot of benefits from correct Chinese medicines.
