Metformin is commonly used to treat type 2 diabetes. It can help control blood sugar levels by increasing insulin sensitivity, decreasing sugar production by the liver and decreasing sugar absorption. The metformin residual is excreted out of the body by the kidneys in right condition. Symptoms of lactic acidosis include weakness, sleepiness, slow heart beat, feeling cold, muscle pain, shortness of breath, loss of consciousness, etc. Although metformin does not directly cause kidney damage, the patients who have kidney damage and or kidney disease should not use the medicine.

Another significant complication of metformin is Acute Kidney Failure. Gastrointestinal problems such as, significant diarrhea or vomiting commonly occur in people who are taking metformin therapy when there is underlying chronic kidney disease. It can lead to severe dehydration and acute renal failure. Discontinuation of metformin and vigorous rehydration usually results in restoration of baseline kidney function.

Herbal medicine is applied externally to work to expand the blood vessels, improve the blood circulation, enhancing the blood and oxygen supply to the kidneys, thus restoring the overall renal function over time.
