Do You Recommend Astragalus for Chronic Nephritis Patients

Do You Recommend Astragalus for Chronic Nephritis PatientsChronic Nephritis is one kidney disease often seen in clinic. Astragalus is one type of herbal plant that is used for many medicinal purposes especially in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Then, can astragalus help treat this type of kidney disease?

Chronic Nephritis

It is also called chronic glomerulonephritis due to inflammatory reactions in kidneys. When glomeruli are unable to filter blood normally, fluid retention, proteinuria, high blood pressure, renal anemia, and so on, may occur easily.

Astragalus for patients with chronic nephritis

As one Chinese medicine, astragalus can be taken both orally and externally. For nephritis patients, this herbal medicine can bring the following benefits.

1. Anti-inflammation

Because of astragalus’ anti-inflammatory effect, it was used for treating wounds, cold and flu in the ancient times. Since nephritis is caused by inflammatory reactions in the kidneys, this herb can help inhibit this reaction and prevent further kidney damage.

2. Strengthen immune ability

To manage nephritis, patients may need to take steroid or immunosuppressants. Both of these two medicines work through weakening the immune system. This makes nephritis patients vulnerable to infections, cold and fever. If patients’ immunity is strengthened, they can avoid these problems effectively.

3. Enhance overall health condition

Astragalus has the properties of increasing energy, enhancing metabolism, improving appetite, and overcoming fatigue. All of these benefits are for nephritis patients. Only if these patients’ overall health condition is enhanced, can they fight against their kidney problem and other complications better.


Although astragalus can help treat chronic glomerulonephritis, patients can’t use it freely. To know the correct dosage, they are recommended to tell more about their illness condition for the doctor online or email to To strengthen the therapeutic effects, patients also need to take some other Chinese medicines as doctor’s guidance.
