The Best Way to Improve Kidney Function 20% for Diabetics

Later, he told us his father is in 60s and has diabetes and kidney function 20%. Therefore, he wonders the best way to treat his father’s kidney - a kidney transplant, dialysis or Stem Cell Therapy.

When diabetes attacks kidney filtering system, we call it Diabetic Nephropathy.

The following is one introduction about kidney transplant, dialysis and stem cell therapy for diabetics with 20% kidney function, so you can learn which one is the best way.

Kidney transplant

Kidney transplant is one operation that replaces the impaired kidney with a health kidney. However, for patients with diabetic kidney disease, they will have a high recurrent rate after kidney transplant. This is because high blood sugar will damage the new kidney as well as its filtering system again.


Generally speaking, kidney patients are suggested to begin dialysis when their kidney function is 15% or less, but patients whose kidney disease is attributed to diabetes need to begin dialysis earlier. For patients with 20% kidney function, dialysis can help reduce the burden on kidneys, protect the remaining kidney function to some extent and cleanse the blood. However, as time goes on, dialysis may also cause some side effects and complications, and some of them may threaten patients’ life.
