"Good morning, sir. I have been on dialysis for about 6 months. And my blood pressure is 90/160, which was 75/130 before hemodialysis. The medicine does not take any effects on lowering it. How can I control my blood pressure well in dialysis?"
Hello, I am a doctor of Beijing Tongshantang Hospital of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine).
The initial consideration of your elevated blood pressure is caused by kidney problem or dialysis according to your description. But, if you want to treat it fundamentally, you need to confirm what is the exact cause leading to the high blood pressure.
You said that you started dialysis 6 months ago, which means your kidneys have been damaged more than 90%. Since some patients may start dialysis earlier, can you tell me what is your creatinine level or kidney function? Except for high blood pressure, do you have any other discomforts? How about your urine output? If you do not mind, please send your medical reports to me, and thus, I can know more about your illness condition and give you more right suggestions.
Generally speaking, the excessive water, sodium and other substances in the blood, which should be excreted by your kidneys, will increase the blood pressure, also, if there are problems of the blood vessel walls, your blood pressure will be boosted. Moreover, the much water and salt intakes will augment your blood pressure. Do you strictly adhere the diet principle of low-salt, low-fat, low-protein, low-phosphorus, low-potassium and high vitamin?
As for the treatment, I recommend you to try Toxin-Removing Therapy. It can help you remove the deposited poisons and dispel the complications of kidney diseases and dialysis through adopted a series of natural treatments. Meanwhile, it is very beneficial for Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and other natural treatments covering Hot Compress Therapy, Cycle Therapy, Foot Bath, Moxibustion and so on to promote the blood circulation and recover the kidney function step by step. And thus, your kidney function will be improved, the blood pressure will be lowered. When your kidney is restored, you can break away from dialysis successfully.
If you need any help, please do not hesitate to contact me. I will do my best to help you.
