“My father has diabetes and high blood pressure. In recent days, his creatinine level increases continuously. Is there a way to prevent end stage renal disease (ESRD) for him?” According to this question, our doctors give out the following answer.
Answer: End stage renal disease (ESRD) indicates kidneys are functioning at 15% or less. In this condition, most patients have to begin dialysis or accept kidney transplant. This is because it may be dangerous for patients to live with their own kidneys.
Please, build the confidence to fight against kidney disease. Since your father has diabetes and high blood pressure, elevation of serum creatinine level indicates kidney damage. Before his kidneys are damaged severely, your father still has chance to prevent completely kidney failure and stop the progression of their kidney disease.
Since your father’s kidney problem is due to high blood pressure and diabetes, the treatment should begin from managing these two problems. Tell us your father’s blood pressure, blood sugar level, creatinine level and kidney function, so kidney experts can prescribe correct antidiabetic and anti-hypertensive medicines correctly. Once blood pressure and blood glucose levels are kept in normal range, the remaining kidney functioning tissues can be protected very well.
Then, some therapies that can rescue damaged but not necrotic kidney cells are needed. At present, “Four Ones” Therapy is the latest treatment plan to prevent end stage kidney disease. Through Maikang Mixture, oral Chinese medicine, external application of Chinese medicine and Foot Bath, it can treat impaired kidney cells both internally and externally. Oral Chinese medicine and Foot Bath have hundreds of formulas, so the individual prescription should depend on patients’ illness condition.
