Question: Hi, my loved one has been diagnosed with IgA Nephropathy a month ago. The creatinine level is 5.4. The person is very young, and is currently on steroids. Doctor is preparing her for dialysis. Please help with alternative treatment options. Thanks.
Answer: Creatinine level is an indicator of renal function. When it increases, it means at least 50% of renal function has lost. Now her creatinine is 5.4. She is in end stage 4 or early stage 5. Though her condition is serious, as long as she takes treatment timely, she can avoid dialysis.
Currently she takes steroids. Steroids are to inhibit renal inflammation and reduce proteinuria so as to halt the progression of IgA Nephropathy. But they are only temporary medical relief, because they can not repair kidney damage and restore renal function.
Alternative treatment for IgA Nephropathy patients
Toxin-Removing Treatment is often used in Beijing Tongshantang Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is also known as Detoxification Therapy. It is actually a systemic treatment, which is composed of 9 therapies. Those therapies can work together to eliminate waste products including IgA immune complexes and extra fluid from body via urine, sweat and bowel movement. After about one week’s treatment, you will see floccules urine, which are those wastes. After about half month’s treatment, creatinine level will be reduced at least 10%. To simply lower creatinine level should not be our only goal. Our ultimate goal is to restore renal function so that creatinine can be passed out of body naturally. This treatment can restore the balance of anti-inflammatory cytokines and pro-inflammatory cytokines to reduce renal inflammation and control the disease from getting worse. It can also dilate blood vessels and clear up stasis to ensure blood flow fluent, and then essential elements such as oxygen, nutrients and active ingredients of medicine can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery. After about one week’s treatment, renal function will get restored gradually.
