If PKD is not controlled well, patients will find their creatinine level higher and higher and GFR (Glomerular Filtration Rate) level lower and lower, which can tell us the gradual loss of kidney function. If GFR level declines to 30, what can Chinese herbs help PKD patients?
As to those PKD patients with GFR 30, their conditions have already developed the late stage of stage 3 chronic kidney disease. So it means if left untreated, the condition will soon develop stage 4 chronic kidney disease which means patients will require dialysis treatment or kidney transplant in the near future. Whether can Chinese herbs help PKD patients with GFR 30 prevent stage 4 CKD and reverse stage 3 CKD?
Well, it depends on whether Chinese herbs can help deal with the reason causing loss of kidney function. As we all know, PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease) is a kind of hereditary disease which is characterized by numerous cysts growing on kidneys. With ages, those cysts can become bigger and bigger, when they grow to a certain degree, they will oppress the surrounding kidney tissues, which can gradually cause kidneys to be ischemic and anoxic. Now it is not difficult for us to know that improving the state of hypoxic-ischemic of kidneys and shrinking the cysts are something a real treatment for PKD is able to deal with.
Through extending blood vessels, improving blood circulation and removing blood stasis, Chinese herbs can help PKD patients improve the state of hypoxic-ischemic; meanwhile Chinese herbs can shrink the cysts by increasing the permeability of cyst wall, decreasing lining cells’ activity of secreting cyst fluids and changing inner and outer pressure difference of cyst wall. In order to increasing the efficacy of medicines and avoid damage to gastrointestinal tract, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy has been created. It is based on Chinese herbal medicines but used externally, PKD patients just need to lie on the bed to take it.
Chinese herbs are expected to help PKD patients with GFR 30 improve the GFR levels and kidney function, but it can be affected by many factors, do you mind telling us more about your condition?
