Is Kidney Transplant Best Option for Diabetes On DialysisMy mother is diabetes type 2 and she just started dialysis. Is kidney transplant best option?

OK, how long has she been on dialysis?

Roughly 2 months.

Does she still pass urine?

Not sure, she lives in Uzbekistan.

If kidney damage is caused by diabetes, patients start dialysis earlier than those whose kidney damage is caused by other factors. Dialysis is used to discharge toxins and wastes from your body. It can relieve your condition to some extent. But dialysis is not enough. Dialysis only removes small molecular substances from your body. Middle and large molecular substances will still be in your body. In this condition, your blood is dirty and can cause further kidney damage. If kidney transplant is done, the therapeutic effect is not so good. New kidney in dirty blood environment can not grow healthily. Your mother can begin dialysis again. Thus, renal transplant is not the best option.

My dad is suffering from ESRD from last week. His creatinine level is 10.5 and is on daily dialysis since last week. So as suggested by you Micro-Chinese medicine Osmotherapy is an innovation from TCM. Is this therapy effective for ESRD?

Hi, this is dr David. Please do not worry. I will give you some suggestion for your father’s condition.

First, our Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy cleanses his blood.

As we all know, kidneys are important organs to discharge wastes and toxins from your body. When kidneys are damaged, this function will be affected. Wastes and toxins will build up in your body. This can pollute your blood and cause further kidney damage. Besides, polluted blood will reduce the effect of medicines you take. Western medicines can not purify your blood effectively while our Chinese medicines can do this job properly. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy acts on your kidney lesion directly to draw out toxins and wastes from your body. This can give you a clean blood environment.

Will Hemodialysis Patients Have Stomach PainDialysis is a lifesaving treatment for those with kidney failure. However, with hemodialysis, there are occasions when a patient may have side effects from the treatment. Stomach pain is a common complication from hemodialysis.

Hemodialysis can cause stomach pain. Besides, low blood pressure, muscle cramps and blood clots can happen as well during hemodialysis.

Due to various side effects from dialysis, most patients choose to avoid dialysis. Dialysis can do some help but it is not a good therapy for kidney disease. It can not repair injured kidney tissues and improve renal function. The longer you take dialysis, the poorer your kidney function will be. Finally you will stop dialysis.

Can I Eat Fried Chicken, I Am A CKD Stage 3 Patient

Question: Can I eat fried chicken, I am a CKD stage 3 patient

Answer: you can eat it no more than 200g per day. We suggest chicken and duck instead of pork, beet and mutton. Meat can supply us necessary elements to improve our immune system, and if we keep a balanced diet, it is able for us to take fried chicken.
