I have met a lot of renal patients. They often asked: how can protein in urine turn negative? How to reduce creatinine level? Do all kidney diseases go to uremia?

All in all, all of them are afraid to go into uremia. And many of them take uremia at the end oflife. In fact, uremia is not fatal, and it is those complications caused by kidney damage that are the most deadly.

You can recall all the medications you use from the time you were diagnosed with kidney disease. Do any of them aim at treating kidney disease?

Steroid, tacrolimus, cyclophosphamide, cyclosporine and so on are all immunosuppressants, which is for the immune system.

There are also several cardiovascular medications to treat kidney damage caused by high blood pressure, high blood sugar level, high blood cholesterol level and environment pollution.

Many uremic patients end up dying not because of kidney failure, but because of a series of complications, such as heart failure. When complications appear and can not be controlled, they are the most deadly.
