Get To Know Traditional Chinese Medicine for Chronic Renal Failure

2012-09-20 14:27

Get To Know Traditional Chinese Medicine for Chronic Renal FailureTCM is the abbreviation for traditional Chinese medicine, which originates from China. TCM is a general term including acupuncture, massage, Qigong, cupping and so on. Let’s see how traditional Chinese medicine deals with Chronic Renal Failure.

Firstly, early detection and correct primary diseases

Early detection and timely treatment are always the primary measures to prevent or deal with Chronic Renal Failure. They can be primary or secondary glomerulonephritis, high blood pressure, diabetes, obstructive nephropathy, interstitial nephritis, renal vascular disease or urinary tract infections.

Secondly, deal with its complications or many other factors. Low level of blood volume, serious infections, urinary tract infections, heart failure or nephtoxic drugs, would be corrected by traditional Chinese medicine. Amongst all those complications, traditional Chinese medicine works extremely well for elevated blood pressure, which happens to be essential during the progression of Chronic Renal Failure.

How TCM slow down the progression of CRF exactly?

1. It could be able to suppress glomerulosclerosis as well as renal interstitial fibrosis. Those two are the most common pathomorphology among almost the CRF induced by primary as well as secondary kidney disease. Therefore, stopping or suppressing the ECM from accumulating and preventing interstitial fibrosis could possibly slow down the progression of CRF.

2. Enema is another way.

The therapy takes effects when one suffers from uremia and aims at removing toxins and wastes by this way. Chinese decoction or dialysate will be infused into one’s colonic lumen; harmful substances will be removed from the body through absorption and excretion function of colon. This approach could help lower serum creatinine, urea nitrogen and serum urea acid; meanwhile, it regulates water and electrolyte balance. However, enema fails to function effectively in patients with ESRD or advanced renal failure.

3. Medicated bath

Edema usually forms as Chronic Renal Failure attacks. Diuretics, sometimes, won’t work well for their swelling. To make things worse, some of them are also tortured by annoying itching skin. For this kind of patients, medicated bath could help them relieve their symptoms.

It can be enough, there are more. If you are interested in Traditional Chinese Medicine, feel free to ask. Hope we could help end kidney disease or even Chronic Renal Failure.
