Is Dialysis a Cure for End Stage Renal Failure

2013-01-07 10:33

End stage renal failure means that the GFR has been lower than 10-15ml/min and the kidneys can not function well to discharge creatinine, blood urea nitrogen, uric acid and other metabolic wastes from the blood. In this stage, patients will need to have hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis or kidney transplant to sustain their life.

Due to the extreme scarcity of matching kidney donors, most end stage renal failure patients have to take regular dialysis to prolong life.

However we all know that dialysis is not a cure for end stage renal failure and more effective treatments are on the need.

Why dialysis can not cure end stage renal failure?

Dialysis therapy is called washing the kidneys. It is a machine to replace part of the kidney’s functions to remove excessive accumulation of wastes and toxins out of the body. But it has no improvement of renal functions, so the renal functions will experience gradual loss if the underlying cause is not well controlled. What is more, long term dialysis make patients become dependent on dialysis and the residual renal functional unites will cease to work and lose their functions in the end, not to mention all the unfavorable side effects and complications that dialysis brings to the patients.

Is there any other more effective treatments for end stage renal failure?

There is no doubt that kidney transplant is far more effective treatment than dialysis, but not every patient has the chance and not many patients can afford the huge cost.

The combination Chinese herbal medicine with renal dialysis is good for those that are on dialysis and those that are waiting for kidney donors. Herbal medicines are natural, safe and effective on reducing symptoms of kidney failure, alleviating side effects of dialysis, prolong intervals between dialysis and reducing dialysis frequency, improving life quality and prolong life expectancy. What is more, herbal medicines are not expensive and nearly every patient can afford.
