Chronic kidney disease (CKD) refers to conditions that damage your kidneys and decrease their ability to keep you healthy by doing the jobs such as regulating the balance of water and electrolyte, discharging metabolic waste and secreting hormones essential to human body.
If kidney disease gets worse, metabolic wastes can accumulate to high levels in your blood and make you feel sick. You may present complications like edema, high blood pressure, anemia, proteinuria, hematuria, respiratory tract problem, gastrointestinal tract disorder and nerve problems. In addition, kidney disease increases your incidence of having heart and blood vessel disease. These problems may emerge slowly over a long period of time.
Chronic kidney disease may be aroused by diabetes, elevated blood pressure and other disorders. Early detection and treatment is advisable and helpful to prevent chronic kidney disease from getting worse. When kidney disease progresses, it may eventually lead to renal failure, which requires dialysis or a kidney transplant to replace your original damaged kidneys.
Chronic Kidney Disease does not show obvious symptoms in the early stages, because kidney is such a particular organ that it has a very qualified compensatory ability. Each kidney has more than 100 million nephrons which is the basic point. Given some nephrons damaged, the rest and healthy nephrons can still sustain the normal running of your kidneys, so you can not realize you have got chronic kidney disease. If other healthy nephrons get imposed on too much burden over time, they can also get injured due to overworking. Consequently, a series of symptoms come across, for instance, Edema in general body, Lumbago, Elevated Blood Pressure, Anemia, Anuria and enuresis nocturna.
Usually, patients can go to the hospital for urine routine test, blood routine test and renal functional examination. Nephrotic physicians diagnose your disease through checking these watershed indicators, such as Serum Creatinine, Urea Nitrogen, GFR, urine specific gravity, erythrocyte and leukocyte. In usually cases, the level of serum creatinine does not present bumpy, even though a part of renal function go haywire. However, your renal function is virtually impaired when the level of serum creatinine hikes suddenly. Combining with GFR and other indicators, the doctor’s diagnosis will be more reliable.
Many patients would resort to hemodialysis and kidney transplant when they are in the end stage of Chronic Kidney Disease. Actually Dialysis is effective and necessary to remove metabolic waste and toxin in human body, but patients is probably to addict dialysis. Long term of dialysis will replace the original kidney and they can become atrophy day by day because of Ischemia and Anoxia of kidney blood vessels. Micro-Chinese Medicine can promote blood circulation so as to relieve kidney’s ischemia and anoxia. Renal fibrosis can be blocked and even restored through treatment. Kidney Transplant has a high successful rate of surgery, but its survival rate is bleak and uncontrolled. Patients must be prudent to prevent rejection and inflammation, a small cold would let renal fail. We use stem cell transplant which can differentiate into various tissues and organs according to our requirement. This kind of cell has qualified homing ability, and it can reach damaged area and grow into blood cells and tissue. Moreover, it is transfused into human body through intravenous injection and does not need matching at all, therefore this approach is very superior to kidney transplant in terms of safety and convenience.
