Is It Possible to Survive ESRD Without Transplant or Dialysis

2013-12-30 11:00

Is It Possible to Survive ESRD Without Transplant or DialysisESRD is short for end stage renal disease. In this stage, your GFR is below 16 %. You kidneys can not remove the wastes and toxins from body, nor can they regulate the electrolyte balance. Everything in your body is in disorder. The common ways to survive ESRD are dialysis and kidney transplant. Is it possible to survive ESRD without transplant or dialysis?

Dialysis takes over part of the function of the failing kidneys to remove the fluid and waste products. Kidney transplant can more completely take over the function of the failing kidneys. If we can improve our own kidney function, then there is no need to take dialysis or kidney transplant.

-Aggressive treatment to improve kidney function

To improve kidney function, we should dilate blood vessels to lower blood pressure and ameliorate blood circulation. This can improve the ischemia and anoxia in kidney. We should inhibit the inflammatory response and prevent further damage to kidney. Because there is too much wastes and toxins in the blood, it is necessary for us to cleanse blood and supply the necessary substances for kidney repairing. In this treatment, many therapies are used, including enema therapy, foot bath, full bath, hot compress, moxibustion, circle therapy, oral Chinese medicine, etc. They have no effect on the necrosis kidney, but they can recover the injured ones. Once the injured part regains its ability and your GFR is more than 16, then you can live without transplant or dialysis.

-Healthy diet

Patients with ESRD do not have the capability to remove excess wastes and liquids, but you can reduce the amount of wastes that build up by monitoring what you eat and drink. You should follow a low-sodium and low-protein diet but with high vitamin and calories. The specific diet, you can consult a dietitian.

In addition, you can do proper exercise to boost your immune system and give up smoking and drinking alcohol.
