Stage 4 kidney disease means that kidneys are damaged severely. Without control, it can progress to Uremia in the future and patients have to take dialysis to extend their life span. Then as a stage 4 kidney disease patient how can you avoid dialysis, then following three steps can help you a lot.
1. Change your diet
A kidney friendly diet is very helpful for slow the progression of CKD Stage 4. Healthy foods produce fewer wastes, and thus reduce workload of kidneys. In general, CKD Stage 4 diet is one that is low in sodium, protein, potassium and phosphorous. But increase high-quality protein is needed to ensure calories.
2. Control symptoms and complications
Patients may be prescribed by the doctor with some over-the-counter medicines to control certain symptom or complication, such as hypertension, diabetes, proteinuria and swelling, etc. These medicines are helpful but you should be careful. Chronic Kidney Disease patients should avoid NSAIDs, such as ibuprofen, because they are reported to be nephrotoxic.
3. Improve kidney function
Most patients can follow the above two advice, but cannot achieve the third goal. Neither diet nor over-the-counter medicines can repair damaged kidney tissues, so they cannot solve the underlying problem. Therefore, I recommend Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Take Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy as an example. It is an herbal therapy used bilateral kidney areas. With penetrant liquids and osmosis device, the effective ingredients can permeate into kidney lesions directly. This therapy can increase who blood circulation so that kidneys cells can get enough blood volume and oxygen to function well. Therefore, the process of renal fibrosis stops and remaining kidney function can be improved. Then the patients with stage 4 kidney disease can get their disease under good control, thus to live a better life without dialysis.
