Why is Your Kidney Disease Easy to Relapse

Many patients choose large-scale hospital and famous experts when they treat kidney disease. But after taking treatment through their guidance, patients found the result is not as good as they think. Because it often relapses after sometime. Do you know what makes that disappointed result?






1. Without a correct diagnosis.

Actually, not only kidney problem, but also other chronic disease is easy to get relapse without a correct diagnosis. For example, immune complex deposits in your blood and causes inflammatory response, which leads to urine protein. In such condition, we can use hormones to restrain inflammatory response, but cann’t remove those immune complex. Gradually the inflammatory response will occur again.

2. Here are a lot of toxins in our blood which will inevitably show impact on efficacy of medicine.

In fact, the key of kidney disease treatment is to firstly clean up the large number of toxins accumulation in our blood, then give the targeted kidney drugs. While in traditional treatment, doctors give medicine/tablet directly without cleaning blood. So the treatment effect is not good inevitably. You can imagine that the medicine effect is certain bad when a large number of toxin stay in our blood.

3. After human blood is polluted, the blood toxin will be immersed into many kidney cells.

If these toxins can not be cleared out of the cells, the treatment effect will certainly not be good. That is, the toxins in the inherent cells of the kidney cannot be removed, and kidney disease cannot be cured.

4. Besides, if doctors only treat symptoms instead of root reasons(blood toxins) of kidney problem, nephropathy can also not be treated successfully.

After knowing the reason of kidney disease relapse, you will have a more clear direction of treatment, and get the best opportunity to treat your disease. Wish you can find such effective treatment soon! Any question, please contact whatsapp number:008615230829917, or send us email to

Why Does Chinese Medicine Treat Edema from Kidney Disease with Better Effect

Edema is a typical clinical manifestation of chronic nephritis. Most of patients with chronic nephritis have recurrent edema and different types of nephropathy edema. So different patients need different treatment solutions. Traditional Chinese medicine adopt dialectical treatment and solve nephritis edema from the cause.

How to eliminate edema? The key is to eliminate the cause of edema.

There are two causes of renal edema.

Firstly, too much protein in the urine leads to a decrease in protein in the blood. If there is less protein, water cannot be absorbed, and water leaks from the blood vessels into the tissue, forming edema.

This is edema of the nephrotic syndrome. Only the proteinuria reduced, the edema can be improved from the root.

The second is that the kidneys have a glomerular-tubule imbalance. The glomerular filtration rate reduced, while the renal tubular reabsorption has not decreased and even increased. That results in a large amount of water not being excreted and accumulated in the body.

This is edema of nephritis, and the usual medicine for this kind of swelling is diuretic.

Therefore, there are two main reasons for edema caused by chronic nephritis. The first is that the kidneys cannot drain water from the body, and the second is that the kidneys leak a lot of albumin.

Specifically, chronic nephritis will cause a decline in renal function, and the glomeruli with nephrons will be affected. Water and sodium cannot be excreted through the kidneys by the normal way—urethra, so water and salt accumulate in the body and cause edema.

Another reason is with the decline of kidney function, the protein in the body cannot be stored, causing some albumin in the body to leak out through the kidney. Over time, albumin in the body will come down, which result in swelling.

In Nephrology Dept of HHHTCM, nephropathy edema gets treated in the principle of combining TCM syndrome differentiation and disease differentiation. It aims to improve the body’s ability to remove antigens, reduce and repair damage to the basement membrane, increase renal blood flow and make glomeruli repair gradually, meantime, the progress of immune complexes and renal fibrosis get inhibited. With kidney function being restored, kidney disease edema will be treated from the root and external symptoms.

How Does TCM Treat Proteinuria of Chronic Nephritis?

Almost 90% of patients with kidney disease will have protein leakage in the early stage. It must be aware that proteinuria plays a vital role in the development and prognosis of renal disease. How does TCM treat proteinuria of chronic nephritis?

As the saying goes, more preparation may quicken the speed in doing work. It is a must to understand the cause of proteinuria from chronic nephritis.

Everyone knows that the kidney is the organ that produces urine. And the urine that is normally excreted does not contain anything useful. However, when the kidney is damaged for various reasons, the glomerular filtration membrane is also damaged. The glomerular filtration function of the useful substances in the urine is reduced, and the reabsorption capacity of the renal tubules is also reduced. So the protein and the like in the plasma will leak out into the urine and proteinuria is formed. Normal people also have protein in their urine, but the amount is very small, usually not more than 150mg.

On the one hand, urinary protein, as an independent risk factor, will affect the progress of renal function. For patients who can control 24hrs proteinuria below 0.5g, they will be more easily to protect the residual renal function and prevent the deterioration of the condition.

On the other hand, consistent proteinuria not only accelerates the progress of renal function, but also affect the development of a series of complications due to kidney disease, such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension and etc. Therefore, controlling proteinuria can also prevent complications so as to reduce patients’ risk. As long as the proteinuria get controlled, chronic nephritis is cured half. How does Chinese medicine treat chronic proteinuria?

Chinese medicine treatment of chronic nephritis proteinuria starts with the cause, blocks the progress of kidney damage, clears immune complexes, actively repairs damaged kidneys, restores kidney function, and prevent protein leakage from the root, so as to achieve the goal of treating both the symptoms and the disease.

This is why many foreign patients visited our hospital for Chinese medicine treatment, after ineffective treatment from west medicine in local. Proteinuria is an early marker of chronic kidney disease. The more protein in the urine, the more severe proteinuria is. And it also means that the renal function is more severe. However, different pathological types can have difference in protein leakage, more proteinuria leakage does not necessarily mean that your condition is also more serious.

Why Could Chinese Medicine Treatment Treat Proteinuria from Chronic Nephritis Without Relapse?

In Nephrology Dept. of HBHHTCM, proteinuria due to chronic nephritis, get treated by systemic treatment method of integrated traditional Chinese and western medicine. Traditional Chinese medicine can improve the therapeutic effect, reduce the side effects of western medicine, and reduce the recurrence rate.

Kidney disease is very easy to recur. Many patients get bothered by multiple relapses. For example, nephrotic syndrome often relapses after a cold; minimum change disease often relapse as soon as the medicine dosage reduced; 60% of patients with nephrotic syndrome are patients who are steroids resistance and relapse; even the well-known “low relapse rate membranous nephropathy, after being treated with cyclophosphamide treatment, still have 32% of patients to relapse.

In short, the disease, medication, diet, lifestyle and other factors may cause recurrence of kidney disease.

So, how could the relapse of kidney disease get reduced?

Standard medication

Steriods and immunosuppressants are the main medicines to treat massive proteinuria, such as prednisone, methylprednisolone, cyclophosphamide, cyclosporine, tacrolimus, Mycophenolate Mofetil, leflunomide and so on.

Prednisone and cyclophosphamide are the most commonly used and often used as the first choice, but each medicine has its own applicant, and some patients are suitable for other immunosuppressants. Many patients do not choose the most suitable steroids and immunosuppressant to use, which is a cause of frequent relapses.

If conventional steroids and immunosuppressants cannot achieve long-term effects, it is recommended to use monoclonal antibodies, the effect is more durable. Some patients feel that their condition has stabilized, and they reduce or even stop the medications without authorization, which often causes relapse. Therefore, to avoid recurrence of proteinuria in patients with chronic kidney disease, integrated Chinese and western medicine is required. Patients with frequent relapse need the joint guidance of Chinese and Western physicians.

Take care of diet with low salt

The first taboo of nephropathy diet is high salt, which ranks first on the principle of five lows and one high. The importance cannot be ignored. Salt contains sodium. Exceeding sodium levels can cause proteinuria increase and high blood pressure, and increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. It is a high-ranking “killer” that harms the kidneys and the whole  body.

For most residents in China, the daily salt intake exceeds 10g, and many people exceed the standard by twice or more. Previously, it was thought that the main cause of disease caused by diet was too much sugar and fat, and this study involving more people revealed the truth about the dangers of high salt.

Prevent infection

Influenza has recently been rampant, and outpatient and emergency departments at various hospitals are overcrowded. Many patients with kidney disease have relapsed due to a cold, so they should improve their disease resistance

For example, it is very necessary for them to take a flu shot once a year to prevent influenza. Besides, patients can take immune enhancers (immunomodulators) levamisole, transfer factor, immune ribonucleic acid, immunoglobulin and so on. Also, the traditional Chinese medicine method of taking orally and externally improves oxidative stress, enhances the body’s antioxidant capacity, and improves immune disorders.

In addition, patients should pay attention to living habits: wear a mask to go out when epidemic outbreaks; do not get close to pigeons, cats, dogs and other pets; open windows and ventilate frequently to reduce indoor bacteria concentration, etc.

For the treatment to proteinuria from chronic nephritis,  combined chinese medicine and western medicine, will solve the symptoms on one hand, on the other hand repair damaged kidneys, so as to fundamentally prevent the protein leakage, together with diet plan to reduce the burden on the kidney and repair kidney function. When renal function is restored,  proteinuria and chronic nephritis can achieve a good recovery without relapse.
