Is there any alternative therapy to the endless dialysis for kidney failure


High creatinine level and anemia are the common complications of patients with Kidney Failure. When you are diagnosed with Kidney Failure, your doctor may suggest with dialysis. Is there any alternative therapy to the endless dialysis for kidney failure patients?

High Creatinine Level 4.0
The creatinine level 4.0 is not extremely dangerous actually, but it indicates the decreasing renal function. Creatinine is a kind of macromolecule, which is produced by muscle metabolism. In normal condition, creatinine should be filtered out by kidneys. Thereby, once your high creatinine levels last for long, it indicates the kidney malfunction.
Dialysis is usually commonly used as a tool to eliminate the macromolecule, but there are also middle toxin and big one in the body. And dialysis cannot move them out.
To solve this problem, our hospital introduces various type of equipment to clear the blood. Each device has its own functions to eliminate the specific toxins in the body. The devices include plasma exchange, hemofiltration, Immunoadsorption, biological filtration etc. This series of blood purification techniques ensure all the toxins are solved properly and lower the toxic environment and working load to your impaired kidneys, which can reduce your high creatinine levels and earn enough time for your kidneys to repair.

Anemia
Anemia is a common manifestation of patients with chronic renal failure and when the serum creatinine is higher than 4, anemia will occur. And it may worsen with the aggravation of renal function. The decrease of EPO generated by kidney; inhibitory action of toxins to bone marrow; short of red blood cells’ life; the insufficiency of iron, folic acid, protein; lose blood caused by dialysis; hyperparathyroidism and so on.
All of the above reasons can contribute to the occurrence of renal anemia. Patients usually apply the injection of EPO, but it will make effects in two weeks.
To the Chinese Medicine, you can see the effects in first 2~4 weeks at most. Most importantly, the Chinese Medicine mainly for recovering the kidney's function of secreting EPO in stead of treating symptoms.

Acute Kidney Injury
Acute renal failure or acute kidney injury, as it is now referred to in the literature, is defined as an abrupt or rapid decline in renal filtration function. It usually is marked by a rise in serum creatinine concentration or by azotemia.

Kidneys are a pair of small bean-shaped organs that lie on either side of your spine at just below your lowest ribs. Besides making urine, they also the most important organ to eliminate excess body water and waster products in the blood or tissues.

Many patients undergo acute renal failure may because of the following conditions: burns, dehydration, hemorrhage, injury, septic shock, serious illness or surgery etc. If you cannot control the acute renal failure immediately, the toxin may get other organs involved and even lead to sudden death.

Immunotherapy
Immunotherapy uses various blood purification devices to cleanse out the toxins in the blood. And one of the common equipment is dialysis, which only aims at the small sized toxins. Immunotherapy uses dialysis, hemofiltration, immunoadsorption, plasma exchange, blood-lipoid elimination, biological filtration and leukocyte depletion to wipe out all kinds of the toxins in the blood. This therapy ensures your body in the toxic-free internal environment.Immunotherapy also can be treatment for acute kidney failure.
Besides, this therapy can repair the damaged kidney tissues and improve kidney functions. Immunotherapy uses some herbs to supply the kidney lesion with enough blood and oxygen to self-cure. In this way, kidney functions will be improved greatly.

Be Wary of Heart Failure Caused by Renal Failure


The kidney doctors from Kidney Disease Hospital, China say that renal failure patients should be wary of the heart failure. Researches find that renal failure has profound negative effects on the body that can cause serious and life-threatening life. Renal failure is one of the complications. How does renal failure cause heart failure?

Renal failure can cause a lot of symptoms including:
High blood pressure
Anemia
Heart failure
Pericarditis
Carditis
Disorder of electrolytes
Bone disease
Fracture
Infection
High creatinine

What Is The Relationship between High Creatinine and Renal Failure?

Long-term high blood pressure increases the load of heart which can cause heart failure. In end-stage renal failure, the elevated plasma catecholamines levels are closely associated with heart failure. In addition, high blood pressure speeds up the progress of atherosclerosis, promoting the onset of heart failure.
Renal failure patients need to be wary of the heart failure caused by renal failure. The excessive wastes build up in the body which restricts myocardium, causing myocardium disease and decline of heart function. In addition, the disorder of electrolytes due to renal failure can lead to heart failure.

In renal failure patients, anemia will reduce the oxygen in the heart which leads to decline of heart function. The less oxygen supply to the heart makes it work hard which can leads to heart failure.

Heart failure is the main cause of death in renal failure so it is important to prevent heart failure in life.

The lifespan depends on how little your kidney functions as well as any other existing health problems. One study found the average survive time is eight days when someone stops dialysis.

In a case, a woman chose to stop dialysis. The patients became more and more sleepy over time. She fell asleep about 6 hours before death and simply slowed her breathing down until it stopped. As the toxins build up, a brief period of confusion may exist for the patient.

In another case, a person lived for one year without dialysis but it is rare.
Virtually, dialysis helps renal failure patients remove the toxins and fluid out of the body to keep people healthy. In most cases, it is able to quickly alleviate the symptoms and prevent the life-threatening complications. In emergency, it is a approach treatment to treat renal failure. So, it is suggested to undergo dialysis if there is no kidney transplant or alternative treatment.
What is the lifespan of someone who is on dialysis?

Your lifespan depends on your age and other medical problems present. If you are between 45-54 years, the average five year survival is 70%; if between 65-74 years, it is 30%. And less than 20% if over 75 years of age.
If you are undergoing dialysis, you can consult the online kidney doctors on your concerns.

The Treatment of Hypotension Renal Failure during Dialysis


Hypotension is a common symptom of dialysis that is likely to link with filtration of too much water in renal failure patients. It continues to be a leading problem, especially in the elderly an cardiovascularly compromised patients. Hypotension does not only cause discomfort, but also increases mortality, according to recent data. So prevention of hypoteinsion remains an important challenge for the dialysis physician. Hypotension stops the dialysis leading to inadequate dialysis and influencing the effects of dialysis, even threatening life. A good control of blood pressure can improve the effects of dialysis, improve quality of life and prolong lifespan. What is the treatment of hypotension renal failure during dialysis?

If any ailments occur during dialysis, tell your doctor as soon as possible so as to deal with the complications immediately. Before starting dialysis, learn some about dialysis and how to do when illness feelings occur. Renal failure is a chronic and progressive disease, plus the pains during dialysis so most patients often feel depressed and hopeless. The nurses need to help them eliminate the panic and set up confidence in fighting with disease to cooperate with doctors.
Evaluate the dry weight and fluid removed from the body. Accurately calculate dry weight in case of excessive fluid removed out of the body. Before starting dialysis, recorder the symptoms that patients have such as swelling, fast heartbeat, shortness of breath, fever, nausea and vomiting. Increased dry weight is considered when symptoms are alleviated; urine output is increased; swelling is decreased. For patients who often experience hypotension, it is necessary to reduce the dose of drugs on high blood pressure before dialysis.

Record blood pressure levels during dialysis. Low blood pressure often occurs within1-2 hours after meals. The signs of hypotension include nausea, vomiting, dizziness, sweats, sleepiness, pale look, confusion. If one or more of the signs occur, monitor blood pressure and oxygen is provided to patients.

For renal failure patients, seeking an alternative treatment other than dialysis is wise because dialysis is not a cure for renal failure.

The facts that diabetics need to know to protect kidneys.

In recent years, the incidence of diabetes kidney disease straight climbs. This is because of the increased number of diabetics.
In fact, diabetes kidney disease is preventable as long as it is early detected and treated. For people with renal function decline, they need to avoid overload and control blood sugar and blood pressure abnormality of which can lead to the further progression of kidney disease. Avoid infection which can aggravate illness condition such as respiratory tract infection, peptic diseases, Care more about medications because drug abuse are more likely to result in kidney disease or development of kidney disease. Medicines such as diet pill and pain killer need to be avoided.

In diet, avoid taking in too much protein especially plant protein such as soybean products. High-quality protein is available such as lean meat, eggs and milk. People with renal damage take in 0.6-0.8g/kg weight half of which is high-quality protein. Taking in too much protein can increase the load of kidneys, aggravating illness condition.

At present, a lot of people think that control of blood sugar is everything but it is not.
Generally, people who have diabetes for over 10 years can suffer from kidney damage. If it can be early detected, some methods can be adopted to slow down the progression of kidney function decline and delay dialysis. Otherwise, it can lead to a fast decline of kidney disease, and speed up the progress of renal failure. Patients are put on dialysis in advance.

The kidney doctors suggest that early detection and treatment can increases the chances of reversion of diabetes kidney disease.

How Long Can You Live with Total Renal Failure


The kidneys of people with total renal failure fail to function properly or at all. As a result, patients experience a lot of symptoms such as swelling, high blood pressure, loss of appetite etc. "How long can I live with total renal failure" or "what is total renal failure lifespan" is frequently asked by the patients or their family members. Virtually, people with total renal failure don't need to worry too much.

Total renal failure, also known as end-stage renal failure may be caused by diabetes, high blood pressure or other long-term diseases that place prolonged strain on the kidneys. A person with total renal failure may experience decrease in volume or frequency of urination, discoloration of urine, nausea, weight loss without trying, malaise, decreased metal clarity, weakness, very weak immune system etc.

The total renal failure lifespan
It is hard to give an accurate number of lifespan of patients with total renal failure lifespan. It depends on severity of kidneys and is most accurately determined after discussion with several physicians. Although dialysis is not a cure for total renal failure, it can extend the life expectancy. A study shows that 42% dialysis patients die of heart failure, or the diabetes complications. Those without prior complications have a 70 percent chance of survival after five years on dialysis. Those with pre-existing illness rang between a 46 percent and 29 percent chance of survival after five years on dialysis. Kidney transplant is another way to extend the lifespan. However, it is not a easy thigh to find a donor so people may not have a chance for kidney transplant until death comes to them. Even though a person is enough lucky to get a successful kidney transplant, he has to take anti-rejection drugs to stop the body destroying new kidneys. More important anti-rejection drugs have a lot of complications such as diabetes, cancer, etc. It is common that people return to chronic kidney disease after years.

Although you are diagnosed with total renal failure, it is achievable to alleviate the symptoms, improve quality of life and prolong lifespan by proper treatment. Perhaps, immunotherapy is a hope of improving the kidney function and prolongs lifespan.

End-stage Renal Failure: Be in no Hurry to Receive Kidney Transplant

End-stage renal failure is not an incurable disease due to the kidney transplant. End-stage renal failure patients have the chances for recovery after kidney transplant. Unfortunately, the insufficiency of donors makes kidney transplant unavailable. Dialysis is their choice.

In the different stages, according to the illness condition doctors will advise different renal replacement therapies including peritoneal dialysis and hemodialysis or kidney transplant. Generally, dialysis is not needed when creatinine is lower than 400 mmo/l but patients need to follow a low protein diet and receive medication treatment in order to delay the deterioration of kidney function. When creatinine rises to 900 mmol/l, dialysis is necessary. At this time, patients do not need to be in hurry to receive kidney transplant because they have residual kidney function. When the kidneys completely fail to work, consider kidney transplant.

Not Only Kidney Transplant Can Help Patients Get Rid of Dialysis. In the condition where the donors are insufficient, people can choose dialysis or other alternative treatment to prolong the life span and improve the life quality.
Immunotherapy is a new treatment for end-stage renal failure in China.

Half Diabetics Develop Diabetes Kidney Disease within 10 Years


Diabetes Kidney Disease is a common complication caused by diabetes and the main cause of death in diabetics. Since there is no obvious symptoms in the early stage, it may develop into the end-stage renal failure when protein in the urine is found.

By detecting the albumin urine, early stage diabetes kidney disease can be found. Once the persistent protein urine occurs, it indicates the decline of kidney function.

The data shows that diabetes kidney disease is the cause of death in diabetics. It is a common knowledge that nephritis can lead to end-stage renal failure but it is not informed that diabetes also can lead to end-stage renal failure. In America, diabetes accounts for 38% end-stage renal failure that is the leading cause of end-stage renal failure. In China, diabetes is the third cause of end-stage renal failure, following glomerular nephritis and high blood pressure.
In clinic, the renal function will decline persistently once the diabetes occurs. It is reported that 25% patients with diabetes kidney disease develop end-stage renal failure within 6 years; 50% in ten years; 75% in 15 years. Patients develop end-stage renal failure within average 10 years.

Apart from the diabetes kidney disease, diabetics still can develop other complications such as cardiovascular disease, eye disease, digestive disease and so on. The function of heart and lung in diabetics is poorer than non-diabetes so dialysis may come early.

So, what is treatment for renal failure caused by diabetes. When end-stage renal failure occurs, dialysis or kidney transplant is the choices for diabetics. However, before deciding to do a kidney transplant, consult your doctor whether it is the right time to receive kidney transplant and learn the risks of kidney transplant in diabetics. In some degree, diabetics have higher risk than non-diabetics during or after kidney transplant.

“Any medicine is filtered by the kidney and liver even cold medications. It is unreasonable to reckon that hypoglycemia drugs filtered by kidney and liver can damage kidneys and liver.

Some patients who think oral hypoglycemic drugs can damage the liver and kidneys ask to use insulin. In fact, each medicine is suitable to some group of people especially for type 2 diabetes who have normal secretion of insulin. High dosage of insulin can lead to hyperinsulinmia.

Abnormality of kidney function is noticed in diabetics but which is caused by diabetes and related to the long-term blood sugar, poor control of blood pressure. Actually, the damage to liver and kidney caused by long-term high blood sugar overpasses that caused by the hypoglycemic drugs. Good control of blood sugar is to protect the kidneys. Patients need to weight the loss and gain before going to take new medicines.

If diabetics suffer from the liver and kidney problems, here are some suggestions.
1. Do tests for the pancreas function, complications and severity of liver and kidney damage.
2. Immediately discontinue the medicines which can damage the liver and kidneys. If the beta cells are damaged severity, discontinue drugs and choose insulin to control blood sugar and reduce the harmfulness of high blood sugar to other organs.
3. Adopt the therapy to protect the beta cells. Control blood sugar and illness condition from the whole. Patients can do some exercise and have a proper diet.

During maintenance hemodialysis, patients obviate multiple thromb on account of smooth bloodstream. It tackles a difficult problem in patients with end-stage renal failure due to lupus. In some cases, it is closely related to APLA (anti-phospholipid antibody) while others who have thromb are related to endothelial cell dysfunction. Fortunately, patients with end-stage renal failure due to lupus response well to dialysis – hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis.

● Kidney transplant
The donor for lupus nephritis is a little different from non-lupus nephritis, which increases the difficulties in the course of treatment. Thromb which occurs during dialysis is the main problem in the patients after kidney transplant especially in patients with APLA. A survey finds that 4 in 8 patients with APLA develop thromb after kidney transplant while 5 patients without APLA don’t develop thromb.
The relapse of lupus nephritis after transplant is boring especially lupus being active although kidney transplant in lupus patients is characterized by the low relapse rate. The causes of relapsing lupus nephritis are still unknown. There is no need to adjust immune suppression drugs. Some studies show that the prognosis of end-stage renal failure due to lupus is poor.

Alternative treatments

● Plasmapheresis
Plasmapheresis is a new technique available to treat lupus nephritis which is characterized by removal of toxic substances in the bloodstream, fast alleviation of symptoms, prolong the life span in some degree.
Plasmahperesis is able to remove the toxic substances which promote the progress of kidney disease or lupus, including:
CIC (circulating immune complex)
Anti-ds-DNA antibody
ANA (antinuclear antibody)
ACLA (anticardiolipin antibody)
Blood coagulation factor
In addition, C3 and C4 can be replenished with refresh frozen plasma. Finally, the goal of treatment can be achieved.

● Immunotherapy
Since lupus is an autoimmune disease, the disorder of immune system causes a lot of complications including lupus nephritis. Immunotherapy is such treatment that aims to regulate the immune system, rebuild the immune system and restore the kidneys.

There are a lot of people with nephritis or nephrotic syndrome who do not get remission after a long course of treatment. Proteinuria and blood in the urine always relapse. Why? Why such unconspicuous diseases can not be cured.

The reason is that kidney disorder is caused not only by the kidney damage but also the whole body problems. In fact, kidney disease is closely related to the immune response.

The immune system can be classified into two types: immune reaction which involves in B lymphocyte, and humoral immune reaction involving in T lymphocyte. Medicines are used before they have not been clear about the relationship between immune reaction and humoral immune reaction. It is likely to lead to medicines misuse which not only damage other organs but also cause a lot of side effects.
How to treat nephrotic syndrome and nephritis?

In hospital, a new theory is found by a team of experts after plenty of clinical trials and experiments. An accurate diagnosis is vital for the successful treatment. Diagnosis aims to find if the disease is caused by immune reaction or humoral immune reaction. So, before making the treatment plan a battery of tests are necessary such as CD4+/CD8+,CD4+, CD8+,B cells etc. It is used to find out the causes,
After the accurate diagnosis, approach treatments are also important that must be the best. Anti-inflammation is not enough to stop the immune reaction which needs block, remove, regulate and protect the immune system.

If the nephritis and nephrotic syndrome is caused by the immune reaction involving in B cells, we will take steps to block the immune system, along with the most-advanced blood purification techniques and traditional Chinese medicine which regulates and protects the immune system.

It is thought that these approach treatment is a comprehensive treatment which treats disease based on the underlying causes.
With 26 years’ experience and expertise in treating kidney disease, they are more confident to cure or offer a better treatment for people with nephritis and nephritis syndrome.

IgA Nephropathy Treatments


IgA Nephropathy (IgAN) is a disease which is named by the deposition of IgA.. The manifestations of IgAN include blood in the urine, swelling, protein in the urine, high blood pressure etc. Before the causes of IgAN are unknown, it is achievable to prevent the IgA depositing in the kidneys.

If the disease is noticed, the prognosis in patients who have good kidney function and proteinuria less than 1g/24h do not need any treatment. But patients who have proteinuria higher than 1g/24h or high blood pressure are more likely to develop end-stage renal disease, so they need especial intervention to tightly control blood pressure. ACEI is the first choice for patients. Glucocorticoid and fish oil are the commonest treatment for IgAN. Glococorticoid is able to relieve the progression of ESRD. Also some surveys show that the combination of prednisone can protect the kidneys. Oil fish can delay the progression of IgA Nephropathy.

For crescent IgA nephropathy, the treatments include glococorticoid, cytoxan, and plasmapheresis. 50% crescent IgA nephropathy patients will develop end-stage renal failure within 1 year.

Kidney transplant is effective for IgA nephropathy patients but 60% patients who receive kidney transplant will suffer from the deposition of IgA. Immunosuppressive agents can stop the IgA depositing in the kidneys.
Traditional Chinese medicine is an alternative treatment for patients with IgA nephropathy. It is able to remove the depositions in the kidneys and increase the blood and oxygen supply to the kidneys which can help restore kidneys. In addition, Chinese medicines treat not only the symptoms but also the whole person by improving the self-healing.

Risk factors for chronic kidney disease


Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is an increasing cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States. Chronic Kidney Disease is a disease which profoundly affects the life quality and health. CKD has a higher incidence of cardiovascular diseases ,mortality and type 2 diabetes. What makes things worse is that people do not notice this disease until a large damage is done. Once they develop CKD, they still have no awareness of cardiovascular disease onset which is the main cause of death in CKD patients. Then, Can Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease Be Reversed?

If untreated well, finally CKD leads to end-stage renal disease which requires dialysis and renal transplantation. In end-stage renal disease, kidneys completely fail to work, removing wastes and fluid from the body. As a result, plenty of toxic substances build up in the body which leads to plenty of life-threatening complications. If kidney transplant is performed, patients are likely to lead a happy life again. If not, they have to suffer from the anguish that disease brings.

CKD has been prevalence in the world which significantly affects the people’s life. Noticing the risk factors of CKD progression helps to stop the progress of CKD.

● Risk factors which speed up the decline of kidney function include:
Age The older a person is, the faster CKD progresses
Diabetes Diabetes is the main cause of CKD in the world.
High blood pressure. It plays a role on the progress of CKD, an independent risk factor of CKD.
CKD familial history People having familial history are more likely to develop CKD.

● Risk factors which can trigger kidney damage include:
Diabetes
High blood pressure
Autoimmune disease like SLE (systemic lupus erythematosus)
Primary glomerular disease

● Risk factors which lead to a progressive decline of kidney function include:
Persistent proteinuria, anemia, cardiovascular disease, smoking

After diagnosed with CKD, patients need to regularly do tests for proteinuria, kidney dysfunction and so on.Some accidents, injuries may reduce the blood volume to the kidneys, which can trigger the acute or sudden renal failure.

Dietary Management of Nephrotic Syndrome


Nephrotic syndrome is a disorder of the kidneys. Improper diet is the main cause of disease. Proper diet is helpful for the treatment of disease. Reasonable diet for Nephrotic Syndrome plays an important role in illness rehabilitation. What should patients with Nephrotic Syndrome eat? What is the quantity of food they should eat?
1. Can patients with Nephrotic Syndrome eat salt and alkali?
Quantity of salt intake for normal adults is about 5 to 6g every day. In some areas, everyone can take 12g salt every day. If patients take more salt and alkali which have sodium, there is water retention in body, inducing swelling. Therefore, patients with swelling should control quantity of salt and alkali. Low-salt diet means that everyone should take 2 to 3g every day. It is unscientific for long-term to be salt-free, which will lead to symptoms, such as fatigue and dizziness.

2. How much water should patients with Nephrotic Syndrome drink?
Generally, urine output of normal people is 1000~2000ml per day. Patients with Acute Nephritis, Acute Renal Failure in oliguria period, Nephrotic Syndrome, Chronic Renal Failure should control quantity of water intake. More water which can’t be discharged will cause swelling and aggravate high blood pressure. There is no limitation for patients whose urine output is normal. In addition, patients with urinary tract infection should drink more water which is beneficial for illness rehabilitation.
Some patients with kidney disease should control water intake strictly. In hot season, patients can take more water and salt to supplement the loss of water which is caused by sweat. If patients have the symptoms of vomit and diarrhea, they should supplement salt and water appropriately.

3. Can patients with Nephrotic Syndrome eat fish, shrimp, eggs and meat?
Fish contains high quality protein, so patients should not avoid eating fish. There are high qualities of minerals in shrimp, which can aggravate kidney burden. Patients shouldn’t eat shrimp and crab. But they can eat eggs and mean meat appropriately.

We hope the dietary management of nephrotic syndrome is helpful. Good health may be ascribed to the details in daily life. A good diet habit can improve your health. But it is not enough for patients with Nephrotic Syndrome to depend on diet therapy. Patients with severe illness should have treatment of nephrotic syndrome in time.
