Can Kidney Function Be Improved For Dialysis Patients

2013-05-05 16:30

Dialysis is required when residual kidney function is not power enough to maintain a normal life, so improving kidney function is the key point for dialysis patients to get rid of dialysis. However, can kidney function be improved for kidney failure patients who have started dialysis?

Kidney is a bean-shaped organ with complicated structure. In kidney, there are various kidney tissues which perform function and help to sustain the normal life. When kidney tissues are affected, they lose their working ability and kidney function is impaired. Necrotic kidney tissues can not be revived to work again, so kidney disease can not be cured. However, in an affected kidney, aside from healthy and necrotic kidney intrinsic cells, there are kidney cells which are injured but still alive. For these kidney intrinsic cells, they can be repaired by Chinese medicines to work again. As long as much more kidney tissues perform function, kidney function gets improved.

Although there is chance for kidney failure patients to get their kidney function improved, not every dialysis patient has this chance. Generally speaking, only these who still have urine output has the chance. Kidneys are responsible for producing urine which is formed when kidney filter blood. There is urine output means there are blood flow into kidney and there are healthy kidney tissues. Under such a condition, Chinese medicines can be applied to improve kidney function. Effective ingredients in Chinese medicines get into kidney lesion with blood flow and by activating these injured kidney tissues and offering them necessary nutrition, self-repairing ability of them can be increased. When thess injured kidney tissues begin to work properly, kidney function gets improved.

Residual kidney function plays an important role in deciding whether a kidney failure patient need to start dialysis or not. In some cases of dialysis, improved kidney function allows patients to live without dialysis, so it is possible for these patients to live without dialysis. However, in some serious cases, patients only allowed to reduce dialysis frequency.

Lastly, chinese medicines used to help dialysis patients improve kidney function are also suitable and helpful for healthy people, as they cause no side effects. Therefore, these medicines are more preferable for people compared with steroids.
