  • What is Chronic Kidney Failure Stage 4?

    Chronic kidney failure or chronic renal failure(CRF) means the kidney function decrease which is based on the various renal diseases. This chronic disease contains five stages. Here is the introduction of chronic kidney failure stage 4.

    In this stage, the patients’ kidney function has been severely damaged and the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) has reduced to 15-29 ml/min/1.73m2. Chronic kidney failure is a slow and irreversible process. The reason causing this chronic disease includes a variety of causes. Any urinary system disease can destroy the normal structure and function of the kidney, eventually leading to chronic renal failure.

    The suitable treatment for chronic kidney failure stage 4

    Many patients may choose dialysis to sustain life. But I’d like to say it is not the only treatment for renal failure patients. Here is an excellent therapy for treating chronic kidney failure. I think hot compress therapy is your good choice.

    Hot Compress Therapy

    Different from the dialysis, this therapy just needs about 45 minutes at a time. While, dialysis may need 4 hours at a time. Hot compress therapy is an external treatment and patients don’t have to avoid the pains due to surgery.

    This therapy can repair renal lesion, enhance renal function, rebuild the inherent kidney structure, eliminate the toxins and excess water and improve kidney function to make it work normally.

    Tight control of symptoms and complications

    For patients with Stage 4 Chronic Kidney Failure, they must have various problems such as high blood pressure and proteinuria. If uncontrolled effectively, these problems may cause further kidney damage easily.

    Dietary suggestions

    Avoid tobacco and alcohol. Both of them can cause a heavy damage to the liver and lung and worsen the condition. Eat more fruits and vegetables which contain various vitamin A, vitamin B and vitamin C.

    Keep low-salt, low-fat and high quality protein diet.

    In addition, remaining a positive attitude and avoiding overwork are necessary for protecting renal function and controlling the illness condition. I sincerely hope that you can keep away from chronic kidney failure and live a happy life.
