In Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, we usually combine Chinese medicine with western medicine. They can make up respective shortcomings and help each other promote effectiveness. In Chinese medicine, there are various therapies, such as medicated foot bath, medicated full bath, steam therapy, enema therapy, circle therapy, etc. They can help eliminate waste products from the blood. They can also draw toxins out of the renal cells. Besides, they can dilate blood vessels and remove stasis to improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into damaged kidneys so that more oxygen, nutrients and active ingredients of medicines can be transported into damaged kidneys to speed up kidney recovery. After about half month’s treatment, your symptoms such as high blood pressure, proteinuria, swelling and so on will get relieved. After about one month’s treatment, your kidney function will improve gradually. With the improvement of kidney function, you can lead a normal and full life with FSGS.
