2013-10-06 13:34

Chronic kidney disease is divided into five stages according to GFR levels. Yes, GFR 21 can tell the condition is already in stage 4 CKD, also known as stage 4 kidney failure. Perhaps you have already been suggested to begin dialysis treatment, but the fact is that no one wants to experience it, which makes you are eager to know when dialysis is started. Here you will surely get the satisfying answers and some new hopes.

Stage 4 kidney failure means the severe reduction of kidney function. It requires dialysis treatment or kidney transplant in the near future. But it does not mean dialysis will be a must for patients with stage 4 kidney failure.

When is dialysis started for stage 4 kidney failure patients?

It depends on the specific condition. As a patient at stage 4 kidney failure, if you still have some certain urine output and there are no any obvious symptoms or complications, then dialysis can be postponed. However, if there are some severe symptoms or complications or you are in some certain situations like the serum potassium level exceeds 7mmol/L, BUN level is more than 54mmol/L, pH is less than 7.25, etc, then urgent dialysis should be started.

If your case belongs to the first condition, then go on reading to see which treatment can help you avoid dialysis treatment effectively.

Treatment to help stage 4 kidney failure patients avoid dialysis treatment

GFR 21 tells that about 21% renal function is left, which means stage 4 kidney failure patients are likely to have some certain urine. In that case, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy will be recommended.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a new development of Chinese herbal medicines which come from the nature, so firstly, stage 4 kidney failure patients do not need to worry about the side effects. It is applied externally. Two bags filled with processed Chinese herbal medicines are put under the lower back of patients, osmosis device and blood circulation will help active materials directly get to kidneys and then begin to play a series of functions. That is the reason why we mentioned urine. If kidney disease patients have had no urine for a long period of time, it means no blood goes through kidneys, then active materials of Chinese herbal medicines can not get to kidneys effectively.

Through extending blood vessels, promoting blood circulation, removing blood stasis, anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation, degradation, promoting DNA replication of damaged inherent cells and providing nutrition for damaged kidneys, kidney damage will be gradually repaired, and kidney function will be recovered, which is the only way to avoid dialysis treatment.
