In recent years, TCM has been used widely to deal with various kidney diseases. Can TCM reverse creatinine 220 and eGFR 19?

Certainly, some Chinese medicines have effects of lowering high creatinine level and increasing GFR level directly. However, most medicines achieve these two therapeutic goals, through the following properties.

1. Anti-inflammation: As more and more waste products and toxins build up in kidneys, they may cause inflammatory reactions within kidneys. This property can help prevent further kidney damage and infections.

2. Anti-coagulation: This is good to maintain normal blood circulation. When blood can flow through the whole body smoothly, it can bring away more wastes and toxins and supply enough blood and oxygen for cells.

3. Expand blood vessels: High blood pressure is one complication of chronic kidney failure that reduces the blood flow into kidneys. Through expanding blood vessels, TCM can not only increase the blood flow into kidneys but also help lower high blood pressure.

4. Degrade extracellular matrix: This effect is helpful to repair damaged glomerular basement membrane. When glomeruli recover to work, creatinine level will reduce and eGFR will increase spontaneously.
