Patient: Years ago, my husband had a sore throat, then his antibodies attack his kidneys. Now, he has chronic kidney failure with the serum creatinine level 7 mg/dl. In his condition, I want to know whether he need to have dialysis or not, and how much is the treatment for chronic kidney failure in China?
Doctor: I get the illness condition of your husband from my assistant, and I am glad that I can help you and your husband. From your description, I know the kidney disease is caused by infection, which is a common cause of kidney disease. And the creatinine level of your husband is 7 mg/dl, which means his kidneys have been damaged severely, and with less than 50% kidney function.
In general, we often recommend kidney failure patients to have dialysis when their creatinine level is higher than 5 mg/dl. However, high creatinine is not the only standard for patients to have dialysis.
For patients who have suffered from some bad symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, serious swelling and skin itching, but their creatinine is less than 5 mg/dl. In this condition, they should have dialysis right now, or these serious symptoms will threaten their lives. Besides, for patients who have less urination or no urination, they need to have dialysis as well. So whether your husband need to start dialysis is all depending on his condition. If he still has urine and some suffer from some serious symptoms or complications, he can have some alternative treatment to remedy his chronic kidney failure without dialysis.
We recommend him to have Chinese treatment to remedy his chronic kidney failure, because the Chinese medicine has a ling history in treating all kinds of diseases. And the Chinese herbal medicines are magical in treating kidney disease. We choose some Chinese herbs which can help repair the damaged kidney tissues and improve the kidney function. And the Chinese herbal medicines are combined with hot compress therapy, the herbs can work on the kidneys directly, which has no side effects on patients.
Besides we also have some other Chinese therapies to remedy the kidney disease. As the illness condition of kidney disease patients is different from case to case, so the expenditure will differs from case to case. When patients come into our hospital, we will make a systemic treatment project depending on patient’s condition. If you want to get the detailed information of the treatment and expenditure, you can send your husband’s test report to email@example.com.
