How ESRD affects respiratory system?

In ESRD, your kidneys are not able to remove waste products and excess fluid out of body so that they build up in the blood, leading to blood pollution. Wherever the polluted blood flows to, wherever will be affected. Therefore, it is likely for all systems to be affected, including respiratory system.

Treatment for ESRD

The commonly used treatment for ESRD is dialysis or kidney transplant. But not all renal patients want to do them. Here we recommend you to try Toxin-Removing Treatment. This is a systemic Chinese medicine treatment, which makes use of Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Enema Therapy, Moxibustion and other Chinese therapies to eliminate waste products and extra fluid from body. It can also improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into kidneys so that enough essential elements such as oxygen, vitamins, amino acids and so on can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery. After about one week’s treatment, swelling will disappear. After about half month’s treatment, your high creatinine, BUN and uric acid level will decrease. You will be energetic. Your high blood pressure will reduce. You will have a good appetite and sound sleep.
