Question: I have been diagnosed with IgA Nephropathy. My GFR is very low at 8 and my creatinine is high at 6. I do not have very many symptoms as of yet, mostly headaches and fatigue. However my doctor here believes I will be on dialysis within the next 6 months unless something were to change. I am already active on the transplant list but I do believe that through eastern methods, my body can work on self healing. I would like to try but I need more information on how your system works.
Answer: From your description, your GFR is 8, which means you have been at end stage renal disease (ESRD), in which dialysis or kidney transplant are the most commonly used treatment.
Since your kidney function is damaged, these toxin can't be expelled out of your body, so they accumulate in your body, including the micromolecule toxin (such as creatinine, blood urea and uric acid), the medium molecule toxin (such as the Cys-C and PTH) and the macromolecule toxin (such as the HCY, RBP and the BMG). But dialysis is only able to discharge the micromolecule toxin, it can’t clear away the medium molecule toxin and the macromolecule toxin. With so much toxin in body, it’s easy for you to suffer from various side effects, such as fatigue, muscle cramps, itchy skin and infection. What’s more, dialysis impacts heart. Almost half of dialysis patients die from heart problem. So we do not strongly suggest the patient do that if there is still hope for patient to improve the kidney function.
However, since you do not have many symptoms, you can put off dialysis, but you should grasp your time for treatment.
Treatment for IgA Nephropathy patients with creatinine 6 and GFR 8
Toxin-Removing Treatment is a Chinese medicine treatment, which includes many therapies, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Enema Therapy, Steam Therapy, etc. Those therapies can work together to eliminate waste products from body via urine, sweat and bowel movement. They can also restore the balance of anti-inflammatory cytokines and pro-inflammatory cytokines to reduce renal inflammation and control the disease from getting worse. Moreover, it can improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into kidneys so as to provide the damaged kidneys with enough essential elements such as nutrients and vitamins to speed up kidney recovery.
-After about one week’s treatment, you will see sediments in urine, which are those wastes being passed out.
-After about half month’s treatment, high creatinine level will get reduced at least 10%. Your headache and fatigues will get relieved.
-After about one month’s treatment, your disease will be under control.
