Kidney Failure due to Diabetes: Is There A Way to Avoid DialysisAnswer: Diabetes is a leading cause of kidney failure. Generally speaking, diabetics start dialysis earlier than other kidney diseases, because diabetes has a lot of severe complications. If the patients don’t have any high risk factor for life now, we suggest they don’t take dialysis, but must seize time to treat kidneys so as to restore some of detoxification function and improve the filtration rate.

What is the patient’s creatinine level now? Does he/she have any severe symptoms or complications? Because we are not clear about the patient’s condition, we can not give you personalized guidance. Here are only some general suggestions for Diabetic Nephropathy to improve renal function.

1. To remove toxins in the blood and protect renal function

After the occurrence of kidney disease, the impaired renal function can not play an important role in normal metabolism, filtration, regulation of electrolyte balance and other important functions, resulting in the accumulation of various toxins in the body, and then renal function is getting worse and worse, blood sugar is getting higher and higher. If kidney function is not well controlled, blood sugar is usually not very stable.

To avoid the rapid development of diabetic nephropathy, the first is to control renal function, followed by sugar control. Removal of blood toxins is the key. Traditional Chinese medicine often has more advantages than western medicine in clearing toxins. Traditional therapies such as Medicated Bath, Acupuncture and Moxibustion have less side effects and more obvious effects than western medicine. In the treatment of detoxification and hypoglycemia in patients with diabetic nephropathy, the effect of integrated traditional Chinese and Western medicine is more obvious.

2. To control diet well

Dietary management plays an important role in maintaining the stability of blood sugar and renal function. Diabetic nephropathy patients should first adhere to the "low-sugar, low-salt and low-fat" dietary principle, coupled with a low amount of high-quality protein, high-fiber, high vitamin supplemented dietary style. The former can fundamentally improve the situation of hyperglycemia in patients with diabetic nephropathy, and at the same time help to reduce the burden of the kidney to protect renal function. The latter is conducive to reducing proteinuria, while helping to balance nutrition, to achieve the role of kidney protection.
