Stage 5 kidney failure
In most countries, kidney disease is divided into 5 stages according to the presence of kidney damage and glomerular filtration rate (GFR). In stage 5 kidney failure, patients’ GFR is less than 15, so most of them hope to receive a new kidney by kidney transplant. However, the fact isn’t so optimistic as we expect. In clinic, kidney transplant is just a treatment, not a cure.
Alternative therapy for stage 5 kidney failure
Since abnormal blood circulation and damaged kidney cells are two vital factors, the effective treatment should begin from these two aspects.
One step is to normalize blood circulation. Here, blood purification is came up with. It includes plasma exchange, hemoperfusion, hemofiltration, immune adsorption and CRRT. These therapies, compared with dialysis, can not only filter out waste products and toxins but also supply necessary elements that patients’ blood need. In such a clean internal environment, patients’ blood circulation can be corrected, thus transporting enough nutrients and oxygen to damaged kidney cells.
