34 Years Old, CKD Stage 3, Swelling in Hands, Feet and Face2013-12-05 11:24
Patient: I am 34 years old female. I was just recently told I have stage 3 CKD. I have had to get dialysis once almost 2 years ago and I am having swelling in my hands, feet and face and I am concerned. Should I be worried?
Doctor: Yeah, I am afraid you need to be very careful about your illness, as if not effective treatment is given at this time, your illness will progress to CKD 5 directly. At that time, dialysis or kidney transplant will be needed. Dialysis and kidney transplant can help to sustain your life, but you may suffer from serious complications caused by long-term dialysis or rejection caused by kidney transplant.
You are in CKD stage 3 and this is the best time for you to receive treatment. For you, if you can get your kidney problem treated fundamentally, it is quite possible for you to avoid kidney failure. Therefore, taking immediate action to treat your kidney is very important.
CKD stage 3 is marked by moderate decrease of kidney function and it can cause lots of symptoms like foamy urine, tiredness, swelling, and high blood pressure and urine problems. You said you are having swelling in hands, feet and face and I am afraid it is due to your kidney problem. In many cases, CKD stage 3 is treated by controlling its symptoms with oral medications. It is helpful, but it can not solve problem from the basic. To receive permanent treatment effects, we need to improve kidney condition. Therefore, now if you can take some measures to protect residual kidney function, and meanwhile repair damaged kidney cells, your swelling will be alleviated effectively.
As for the treatment for CKD stage 3, I suggest you to try Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy which has been proven to be able to activate injured kidney cells. This treatment has been widely used by patients from more than 60 countries.
