Expert Answer

high blood pressure can cause big pressure to kidney filtering system which consists of capillaries. If uncontrolled in long time, kidneys are damaged and less blood flows into kidneys. Then, because of lack of blood and oxygen, kidney functioning tissues are damaged or even necrotic. Finally, kidneys shrink gradually. In this condition, several methods can help stop your kidneys from shrinking.

1. Control high blood pressure effectively: Since high blood pressure is the underlying cause, more effective treatments should be taken to manage it. If conventional medicines or treatments are not helpful, you can try medicated bath, enema therapy, cycle therapy, acupuncture or hot compress therapy. These therapies can either expand blood vessels all over the body or remove extra fluid, waste products or toxins from the blood vessels.

2. Make damaged kidney cells alive again: To achieve this goal, enough blood and oxygen should be provided for inherent kidney cells and these cells’ self-curative ability should be boosted. In view of this, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a good choice. In severe cases, patients may even need to take Stem Cell Therapy.

In addition to these medical therapies, a healthy diet plan and lifestyle is also very important to treat shrinking kidneys.
