Hi, I am sorry to hear you have End Stage Renal Failure and suffer from dialysis. As for your questions, the answers are as below:

1. Are there other ways for End Stage Renal Failure besides dialysis?

Since your have been on dialysis for almost 3 years, so whether you have chance to stop dialysis is based on your specific condition.

In general, if you have good urine output now, then you have great chance to get rid of dialysis with the help of Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. It is an innovation of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) which has been used to deal with refractory illness over 5000 years. With the help of Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, kidney function can be improved, which allows patients to stop dialysis or reduce dialysis frequency.

However, if you have stopped passing urine, the only chance for you to stop dialysis is to do kidney transplant. It is hard to find a matched kidney in limited time, but at least it is a chance.

2. Can kidneys be healed with End Stage Renal Failure?

Kidney works through different kidney intrinsic cells like glomerular epithelial cell, glomerular endothelial cell and renal tubular cell. These cells are just like cells in our other body parts. When they are mildly injured, they can get recovery by themselves and if they are severely damaged, medical treatment is required. However, if it is left alone, it will be necrotic and at that time, it can not be repaired anymore.

For your case, what you can do is to repair your injured kidney intrinsic cells, which will help to regain some of your kidney function. However, your necrotic kidney cells can not be repaired any more, so there is no cure.

There are other ways for End Stage Renal Failure besides dialysis, but there is no cure. If you still have any questions or want to learn more about alternative treatment, please leave us message.
