2018-01-15 10:35

My Story of Fighting Against Edema“Due to Lupus Nephritis, I get many symptoms, including serious edema on the whole body, poor sleep, swollen abdomen, nausea and vomiting. Before coming to the hospital, I never thought how should I do, the only thing is to wait for death. Thanks very much for the great Chinese medicine, thanks for the doctors and nurses here. If without them, I would not gain rebirth.” LIMA told us with a smile.

Disease History

LIMA is 31 years old. Seven years ago she was diagnosed with Stage 4 Lupus Nephritis, blood pressure was 130/80mmHg, proteinuria 4+, occult blood 2+, and then joint pain, fever, and dermatitis appeared. Five months ago, she found her blood pressure reached to 140/80mmHg, proteinuria 2+, and occult blood 1+. What is worse, her whole body started to have serious edema, which made her could not walk normally, just lie on the bed. So it is no stranger that she came to our hospital in a wheelchair.

Check-up in Beijing Tongshantang Hospital of TCM

After she arrived at our hospital, our doctor did a systematic check-up for her, which showed her blood pressure 180/120mmHg, proteinuria 3+, occult blood 1+, total protein 65.1 g/L, albumin 33.0g/L, triglyceride 0.95mmol/L, total cholesterol 3.81mmol/L, and weight 59.8kg.

Diagnosis: Stage 5 Lupus Nephritis, Renal Anemia, and Renal Hypertension, etc.

Treatment Schedule

To ensure she could get effective therapy, we invited experts to make treatment schedule according to her years of illness condition, including plasma exchange, diuretic treatment, Chinese medicine treatment, etc.

Chinese medicine treatments have Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy (2/day) to improve the microcirculation of kidneys, Chinese herbal foot bath (2/day) to dredge collaterals and promote blood circulation, and steaming therapy (1/day) to relieve her symptoms, such as fatigue, weakness, and poor sleep.

Curative Effects

Through 15 days of treatments, her edema started to disappear. Nausea and vomiting had been improved greatly. Under the diet guidance of nurse, her body became better and better. Each day she would have a walk in the hall with nurse. About 20 days, the examination showed her blood pressure was controlled in 130/90mmHg, proteinuria reduced to 1+. After 25 days of treatment, her condition kept stable and in order to consolidate the condition, she were willing to take medicines at home. Now, LIMA’s condition has been controlled well, and she starts a new life without edema.
