Stage 4 CKD with 29% Kidney Function: How to Reverse It

Topics: Stage 4 CKD Treatment Stage 4 CKD

Details: I am trying to gather treatment information about Stage 4 CKD. My dad has it and his kidney function is 29%. How to reverse it?

Expert Answer

In stage 4, kidneys are damaged severely, so patients must suffer from various problems. In order to avoid dialysis and kidney transplant, patients should take treatments to improve their kidney function timely. As long as patients' kidney function keeps in 15% or higher, patients can stay away from dialysis or kidney transplant successfully.

29% kidney function means patients' kidney disease has just progressed into stage 4 from stage 3. In this condition, it is still possible to reverse patients' kidney damage. Since chronic kidney disease is complex, the treatment plan should be systemic.

1. Follow a diet plan and lifestyle: A correct diet plan and lifestyle can protect the residual kidney functioning tissues from further damage. Follow online doctor's guidance to develop a healthy diet plan and lifestyle.

2. Take correct medications: In stage 4, patients must have experienced some kidney-related complications such as high blood pressure and proteinuria. Patients should select correct medications to take according to their complications.

3. Accept kidney repairing treatment: Some Chinese medicine therapies can help repair impaired kidney cells. Try to determine which therapy is suitable for your dad with online doctor's guidance.
