So many patients with end stage kidney failure think kidney transplant is their only hope to live a relatively normal life. However, because of no matched donor or enough money, most of patients don’t have a chance to accept kidney transplant. Or, the transplanted kidney fails again after the operation. Is there any hope for these patients without kidney transplant?
Firstly, know when kidney failure patients need kidney transplant.
Generally, people with end stage kidney failure are placed in kidney transplant list, when their kidney function declines to about 20%. However, if patients have the following conditions, kidney transplant should be avoided.
- Patients have severe infections, phthisis, peptic ulcer or malignant tumor
- Kidney disease is just the partial manifestation of the whole body disease
- Patients suffer from heart disease, liver sclerosis or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
- People above 60 years old
Secondly, make clear what we can do if transplanted kidneys fail to work.
If patients’ kidney failure is caused by IgA Nephropathy, FSGS or other autoimmune diseases, the recurrence rate of kidney transplant is usually high, that is to say, patients may get kidney failure again after kidney transplant. In this case, most of them may need to begin dialysis again, but in fact, we still have some other treatment options.
Finally, learn about alternative treatments to kidney transplant.
Today, we would like to introduce three treatment options. To determine which one is available for you, you can leave a message in the below form, so kidney experts here can tell you the answer.
- Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy: With effects of anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation, dilating blood vessels and degrading extracellular matrix, this therapy is able to protect remaining kidney tissues and repair damaged kidney cells.
- Polluted Blood Therapy: It focuses on normalizing blood circulation before repairing damaged kidneys. Once blood is cleansed, it can transport enough blood and oxygen to kidneys, so as to prompt the restoration of kidney inherent cells.
- Stem Cell Therapy: Make stem cells to differentiate into five types of kidney inherent cells, so this therapy may achieve the rebuild of kidney structure and the increase of kidney function.
