Hi, thanks for leaving message to us and I will try to give you more practical suggestions.
So sorry to hear your mother is suffering CKD stage 3. You can not give her lots of water because she has swelling symptom, right? If yes, the following tips will be helpful for her:
1. Limit salt intake, which will cut down the potential for excess thirst.
2. Chew gum: This helps to activate salivary glands and keep her moist with saliva.
3. Suck on ice cubes and ice chips: Cold wet ice cubes can stay in the mouth longer than a sip of water.
4. Daub lips with soaked swab.
5. Avoid medicines that can cause dry mouth
Your mother experience fluid retention as affected kidneys can not discharge excess fluid. From this view, improving kidney function is the key point. As long as kidney function gets improved, fluid retention will be remitted and consequently, she can drink much more water.
As for the treatment that can improve kidney function, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is suggested. There are a majority of Chinese herbs that can help to strengthen kidney. In micro-Chinese medicine is the combination of several herbs and it show obvious effects in improving blood circulation and kidney function.
Besides, your mother’s creatinine level 3 and blood urea 88 are higher than the normal value, which occurs due to decreased kidney function. Dialysis or kidney transplant will be needed when creatinine level increases to 5.Therefore, application of Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy not only helps to remit excess thirst, but also bring dialysis and kidney transplant far away.
