From the perspective of Chinese medicines, renal failure is caused by ischemia and hypoxia in the kidneys due to various reasons and the formation of renal fibrosis and scarring.
Chinese medicine is another treatment option besides dialysis and kidney transplant thought many westerners do not know much about it. Here I will give a brief introduction of Chinese medicine treatment for renal failure.
Chinese medicines mainly have the following functions while treating kidney failure.
Repairing damaged renal tissues
Active ingredients in Chinese medicines can promote blood circulation, eliminate blood clots, heat and toxins out of the body. It can improve micro-circulation in atrophic and necrotic renal tissues so as to improve renal metabolism and repair damaged renal cells.
Improving kidney functions and GFR
Chinese medicines can provide more blood, oxygen and necessary nutritions for new renal cells to grow so as to rebuild renal structure and renal functions.
Delaying or even preventing dialysis and kidney transplant
When renal functions and GFR are improved and urine output is increased patients will not need to take dialysis or kidney transplant or the side effects and frequency of dialysis will be much reduced for those that have taken dialysis for years.
Lowering serum creatinine and BUN
When renal functions are improved, excessive creatinine, urea nitrogen and other metabolic wastes will be discharge out of the blood naturally. What is more, patients need not worry about the relapsing of high creatinine and BUN.
One advantage of Chinese medicines that western medicines can not achieve is overall benefits to the body. It can not only treat kidney disease, but also can regulate disorders and imbalances in other systems and organs. Chinese medicines can make patients stronger and healthier. That is why many healthy people will have some Chinese medicines to help delay aging and building up physical strength.
Another characteristic of Chinese medicines is that different medicines will be prescribed according to each patient’ symptoms, constitution as well as duration and severity of illness conditions.
The efficacy of Chinese medicines has been proved, however Chinese medicines do have some drawbacks---low effects and burdens to gastrointestinal tract. And it is recommended that professional practitioner of Chinese medicines should be consulted before having Chinese medicine treatment for renal failure.
