What is Renal Disease Stages and Its Characteristics

The stages of chronic kidney disease is according to different renal function index like glomerular filtration rage, endogenous creatinine clearance rate and serum creatinine level and etc.Through these index,we can learn patients’ chronic kidney disease stage,then make sure the prevention and treatment goal and take reasonable treatment measure.







The first stage:inflamed injury stage

1. Pathological changes. This stage only means the damage of renal cells, renal tissue’s ischemia and hypoxia. Local changes of glomerulars: mesangial cell proliferation, mesangial matrix increasing, charge barrier injury, permeability enhancement, etc.Once the effective treatment is missed at this stage, the kidney disease will enter the refractory stage.

2. Clinical symptoms: slight eyelid edema in the morning, increased urine foam, unstable blood pressure, occult blood, urine protein, etc., with blood creatinine being higher than 133 umol/L.

The second stage is renal injury

1. Pathological changes: Due to delayed treatment at the stage of inflammed injury, glomerular become sclerosis; tubular shrink and atrophy;and renal tissue fibrosis occurred, which resulted in the gradual reduction of renal units, aggravated progressive renal function injury, and progressive deterioration of the disease.

2. Clinical manifestations: increased blood pressure, dizziness, headache, loss of appetite, anemia and fatigue, cool limbs, edema, increased nocturnal urination, increased foam, etc.Renal volume began to shrink, blood flow of both kidneys decreased, filtration function decreased, excretion function delayed, creatinine clearance rate decreased, blood creatinine being over 186 mol/L, creatinine, urea nitrogen, uric acid and urine protein began to rise, getting azotemia, etc.







Stage 3, renal failure (the advanced stage is uremia)

1. Case changes. Due to ineffective control of renal fibrosis and renal damage, glomerular sclerosis is aggravated, glomerular atrophy and necrosis, renal unit depletion, severe renal function loss, and renal failure (uremia in the late stage).

failure, digestive tract hemorrhage, renal bone disease and so on, serum creatinine being over 451 mu mol/L, uremia period even as high as more than 1000 mu mol/L.Creatinine clearance is less than 20 ml/min, even 10 ml/min at uremia period , severe anemia, high blood pressure, electrolyte imbalance and acid-base balance disorders, excretion disorder, no urine, double renal severe fibrosis and so on, a lot of toxic urine retention in the body, harm the body organs.2. Clinical manifestations. Other system appear serious complications, such as heart

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

What Should PKD Patient Pay Attention to

Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is a genetic disease (passed from an affected parent to their child) causing uncontrolled growth of cysts in the kidney eventually leading to kidney failure.

PKD affects thousands in the United States and millions worldwide – and yet, many people have never heard of it. Learn basic facts about what PKD is, how it impacts people and how the PKD Foundation helps. The more people who know about PKD, the closer we can get to treatments and a cure. Together, we can raise awareness and fight PKD.

Surely a good diet and life style can also do great help in prevent risk of PKD patients. So you need pay special attention to it.

But no specific diet or lifestyle measures have been shown to prevent cysts developing in people with ADPKD. However, a healthy lifestyle may help to protect your kidney function and reduce your blood pressure and risk of cardiovascular problems, such as stroke. Keeping your blood pressure down is especially important, as high blood pressure can damage your kidneys if you have ADPKD.

Tips for a healthy diet and lifestyle include:

· Maintain a healthy weight

· Drink enough fluid to stay hydrated

· Aim for a balanced diet that is low in salt, sugar and fat

· Take regular exercise

· Limit how much alcohol you drink

· Stop smoking

The information on this page is for people with ADPKD who are not on dialysis and don’t have very low kidney function (i.e. people whose kidney function is above 30%). If you are on dialysis, have low kidney function or have been given specific dietary or lifestyle advice from a healthcare professional, the advice on this page might be wrong for you.

If you have any concerns, always ask your doctor before making any changes to your own or your child’s diet or lifestyle.

If you still have any other questions, please tell me freely.

What Are the Main Causes of Kidney Disease

Each thing happens for a reason, such as kidney disease. Here are many reasons of kidney disease that be ignored by people. Except some primary cause like hypertension, diabetes or heart disease. We would like tell you some main causes based on our clinical experience.

1. Studies from the perspective of hemorheology prove that significantly increased plasma viscosity, whole blood viscosity, fibrin content and platelet aggregation are important causes of renal cell ischemia or necrosis.

2. Indfection is one of the causes of this disease. Pharyngitis, tonsillitis and other infections will cause this disease. Cold is the most common infection to bring or aggravate this disease.

3. Adverse external environmental factors, such as wind, cold and dampness, will lead to the reduction of the body’s own immune function and disease resistance.

4. Overwork reduces the immunity of human body, which will lead to this disease in the long run.

5. Long-term holding urine is not only easy to cause bladder injury, but also bacterial reproduction. Once it returns to the ureter and kidney, toxic substances in it will cause kidney infection, which will cause urinary tract infection, even uremia.

6. Misuse of drugs is the common seen reason.

A lot of cold medicine, antiphlogistic painkiller, reducing weight medicine and Chinese herbal medicine have kidney toxicity, and these drugs are used widely. The citizens that do not have medical knowledge is dangerous. Obese people are prone to chronic diseases such as high blood pressure and diabetes, which, if poorly controlled, can damage the kidneys in the long run, indirectly causing the disease.

Too much salt is also a trigger.The main component of salt is sodium chloride . Sodium is our necessary mineral nutrients. Chloride is helpful to gastric juice production and maintain the osmotic pressure of blood . But if the the sodium level is high in our blood, it may cause swelling and high blood pressure. As we all know high blood pressure can lead to kidney disease.

Now that you know some reasons of kidney disease, we hope you can have a good habit of life and diet to prevent kidney disease. If you have any questions, please contact us freely.

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.

Four Advantages of Traditional Chinese Medicine for Nephrotic Syndrome

Most patients with nephrotic syndrome take western medicines such as prednisone, cyclophosphamide and other medicines for a long period of time during treatment. Gradually patients often have a severe dependence on this during the treatment process, which reduces body’s sensitivity to medicine and reduces the patient’s resistance.

Patients become susceptible to colds, and often relapse attack , not mention to cure. And long-term use of such drugs will also cause certain damage due to the large toxic side effects of such drugs.

Experts from the Nephrology Department of Hebei Hepatopathy Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine (HHHTCM) found that traditional Chinese medicine has great advantages in clinical treatment of this disease in long-term clinical practice. The following describes the characteristics of traditional Chinese medicine in the clinical treatment of this disease:

1.Elimination of urinary protein

Pharmacological studies have proven that many Chinese medicines such as Cordyceps sinensis, Serissa japonica, Astragalus, Dandelion, Forsythia etc. have the function of improving cellular immunity and humoral immunity. We also found through a large number of clinical observations that such medicines can improve Antigen’s scavenging ability, repair the damage of glomerular basement membrane, increase renal blood flow, promote the absorption of fibrous tissue, make glomerular repair and eliminate urine protein.

2.Improve renal function.

Clinical findings show Qingre Jiedu medicines such as Honeysuckle Flower can inhibit the formation of immune complexes and inhibit the formation of glomerular fibrosis. The repair of diseased epithelial tissues has obvious effects. Medicines to activate blood and soften stiffness such as saffron, salvia, and Red Paeony Root can relax renal vascular smooth muscle, relieve vasospasm, improve renal blood flow, so as to protect the kidney.

3.Reducing the side effects of English medicine

It solves the rebound effect of steroids. In the process of applying steroids and immunosuppressants, patients often have various problems like immune disorder, immunity decline, relapse, gastrointestinal reactions and bone marrow suppression. In clinical treatment, we will give treatment to tonify spleen and kidneys, warm and improve renal Yang so as to relieve the side effecs of steroids and immunosuppresive agents., regulate immune function as well as solve the problem of relapse due to steroids reduce.

4.Improve body’s sensitivity to steroids

Less than half of patients with nephrotic syndrome are sensitive to steroids, and it is difficult to use immunosuppressive medicines. But after the proper application of traditional Chinese medicine treatment, most patients can get good clinical effect because their body’s insensitivity to medicines turn sensitive. However, the application of combined Chinese medicine and Western medicine must be based on syndrome differentiation and dialectical treatment. Specific treatment solution for individual case, can expect satisfactory results.

Here are many  advantages of traditional Chinese medicine in treating nephrotic syndrome.It is dialectical ,individualized and targeted treatment that can achieve very good treatment results. And under the guidance of the overall concept,we can comprehensively grasp the changes and development of the kidney, combine prevention and cure, treat both symptoms and disease from the root.
