End Stage Kidney Failure with 12% of Kidney Working

Posted: by doctor zhaodashen30      Time: 2014-06-26 02:52

Topics: Kidney Failure ESRD

Details: My father has been told he has end stage kidney failure with only 12% of kidney working, but he refuses dialysis. His kidney problem is caused by long-term diabetes. What should we do for my father?

Expert Answer

For patients with diabetic kidney disease, they are always recommended to start dialysis earlier, because Diabetic Nephropathy may cause some life-threatening complications such as cardiovascular disease and heart failure. 12% of kidney working is not enough to filter out extra fluid, waste products and toxins. If left uncontrolled, kidney condition may worsen quickly.

However, if you can’t persuade your father to do dialysis, some other kidney replacement or repairing therapies are needed. The following are some treatment options, so you can determine which one is suitable for your father with online doctor’s guidance.

1. Blood Purification: In addition to dialysis, many other methods can help cleanse patients’ blood and protect remaining kidney function. For example, Plasma Exchange, Immune Adsorption, Hemofiltration, etc, are all helpful.

2. Clear Blood Pollution Therapy: This therapy helps repair damaged kidney cells beginning from normalizing blood circulation and adding essential ingredients into blood circulation. Finally, this therapy can rebuild kidney structure.

3. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy: With the effects of dilating blood vessels, anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation and degrading extracellular matrix, this therapy can repair damaged kidney cells.

If you can’t determine which one therapy is suitable for your father, you can consult the doctor online.
