How to Treat Chronic Kidney Disease in Stage 4
The symbol of Chronic Kidney Disease in stage 4 is glomerular filtration rate decreases to the range from 15 ml/min/1.73 m2 to 29ml/min/1.73m2. With the decreasing of glomerular filtration rate in this stage, some symptoms begin to appear and some symptoms which have existed before become more severe. For instance, due to damaged renal structure, kidneys of patients with Chronic Kidney Disease can not excrete potassium smoothly, as a result, potassium pile up in their body. With more and more potassium accumulate, hyperkalemia appears. Moreover, symptoms such as swelling, fatigue, and high blood pressure are more severe.What Treatments Are Available for Stage 4 CKD Treatment Options for Stage 4 Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)
All the symptoms in stage 4 of Chronic Kidney Disease are caused by great damage of renal feature. Our kidneys are composed of several millions renal unit which contain masses of renal intrinsic cells. These cells have different function and when these renal intrinsic cells are damaged, meanwhile, our kidneys will lose their function. For example, glomeruli have filtration function and when glomeruli are damaged, glomerular filtration rate will decrease correspondingly. As more and more renal intrinsic cells are damaged, our kidneys will lose almost all their function, causing dysbolism of our body. Consequently, a series of symptoms appear. Damaged renal intrinsic cells are the root cause of symptoms in stage four, so if we want to relieve these symptoms, we should on one hand stop healthy renal intrinsic cells from being damaged unceasingly and on the other hand repair impaired cells. Only this, can we treat our Chronic Kidney Disease fundamentally.Treatment for Stage 4 Kidney Failure with 17% Kidney Function
Treating symptoms does not mean treating disease. No matter what kind of disease we get, as long as we find the root causes and then receive treatment which is aimed at the real reasons, we will get our disease cured, at least controlled.
