What can Chinese medicine do for Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease?
Different from western medicines, TCM can be used as a long-term therapy and aims to improve patients’ health condition gradually and safely. Generally speaking, TCM can bring the following benefits for these patients:
1. Boost Qi and nourish blood: In the view of TCM, a vital energy or life force in our body is called as Qi, while blood is responsible for providing enough nutrition and oxygen for cells all over the body. This benefit can make kidney disease patients get rid of fatigue and prompt the restoration of damaged kidneys.
2. Lower creatinine and BUN level: Nearly all Stage 3 CKD patients are worried about their high creatinine and BUN level. TCM can help increase urine output, so as to take away more creatinine and urea from the body.
