Help Patients with Kidney Function 9%, GFR 12 Avoid Kidney Transplant

Kidney transplant and kidney function 9%, GFR 12

Generally speaking, most patients with kidney function 9% and GFR 12 have already begun dialysis, and some of them may have already been on the transplant list.

A successful kidney transplant can really help prolong patients’lifetime, but receiving one is not an easy thing. In China, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy says kidney transplant will not be the last choice until nearly all of the kidney function has been lost. If patients with kidney function 9% and GFR 12 still have some certain urine output, then Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can be another treatment option. You will surely find the detailed information about this treatment, after reading, you will find it aims at repairing kidney damage and recovering kidney function.
