Treatment to Improve Kidney with 35% Kidney Function

Details: My husband was told today that he has 35% of kidney function. What can he do to make his numbers better? I worried.

Expert Answer


35% kidney function means at least a half of kidney function is impaired and under such a condition, patients usually experience lots of symptoms like high blood pressure, proteinuria, tiredness, poor appetite and so on. In such a case, if no measures are taken, kidney function keeps declining and at last kidneys shut down completely. However, if patients seize this chance to receive systematic treatment, they will avoid ESRD (End Stage Renal Disease) and live a high quality life.

A systematic treatment for patients who have only 35% kidney function left include the following several aspects:

1. Tight control of high blood pressure, proteinuria, electrolyte disturbance and swelling

All these symptoms are resulted from impairment of kidney function and with the decline of kidney function, they will become more and more serious. Although they are not the direct cause of kidney problem, but if not controlled well, they will worsen kidney condition and accelerate illness progression. Therefore, medicines are usually needed to bring them under control.

2. Protect residual kidney tissues

in Chronic Kidney Disease, kidney tissues are injured by different ways like persistent high blood sugar, persistent high blood pressure and inflammation. We need to find out the real cause and then take corresponding measures to get it removed. In this way, residual kidney tissues can be protected from being damaged.

3. Repair injured kidney intrinsic cells

In an affected kidney, there are three types of kidney intrinsic cells: dead kidney cells, injured kidney cells and healthy kidney cells. Healthy kidney cells work normally and what we need to do is to protect them from being damaged. Dead kidney cells can not be revived according to current medical technology. And for injured kidney cells which have been damaged but still alive, they can be repaired with some medicines. By repairing these kidney cells, kidney function can be improved.

4. Make a kidney-friendly diet plan

Although kidney function can not be improved by making diet changes, with proper diet adjustment, kidney burden can be decreased, so a scientific diet is also a part in the systematic treatment when only 35% kidney function is left.
