Question: I’ve been diagnosed with kidney disease. My last GFR was 14 and my BUN was 64. I’m diabetic, 47 years old and wondering if kidneys replenish or heal if drastic changes are made to diet?

Can Kidneys Replenish if Drastic Changes Are Made to Diet for Diabetic Nephropathy PatientsAnswer: Your GFR was 14, which means you are in end stage renal disease (ESRD). You said you have diabetes. How many years of diabetes do you have? Are your kidney disease associated with diabetes? Only when you have a clear diagnosis of it can you find out a suitable treatment plan. Here are only some general suggestions for you to improve your condition.

Diet changes are not enough for patients with Diabetic Nephropathy to improve their kidney condition.

Diet plays an important role in the treatment process of chronic kidney disease, but it is only an adjuvant treatment. It can help lower blood pressure by reducing salt intake. It can also help protect renal function and reduce protein leakage by restricting protein intake. Moreover, it can help stabilize blood sugar level by controlling sugar intake and carbohydrate intake. But simply diet can hardly improve your kidney condition. And you have to combine your diet with medical treatment to achieve a better effect.

Medical treatment for Diabetic Nephropathy patients to improve renal condition

With such a low GFR, there must be a lot of waste products in the blood. Those wastes do not only cause further damage to kidneys, but also affect other body systems to threaten your life. Besides, they may counteract the effect of medications to reduce the therapeutic effect. Therefore, if you want to have a good effect, you need to improve blood condition firstly.

In our hospital, Toxin-Removing Treatment is often used. This is a systemic treatment, which makes use of Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Cycle Therapy, Steam Therapy and so on to increase your urine output, improve your bowel movement and make you sweat so that wastes and extra fluid can be eliminated from body. It can also improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into kidneys so that enough essential elements such as oxygen, nutrients and active ingredients of medicine can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery. Moreover, it can suppress renal inflammation and halt the progression of disease. After about one month’s treatment, your disease will be under control, and renal function will get improved.
