Kidney weakness and disease


#1

How are the results of TCM acupuncture for helping kidney disease.Can it help stabilize it or improve functioning.Is it safe for people on dialysis?


#2

In most cases, generally, it offers quite a bit. As Chinese Medicine works broadly it has a way of assisting the body with complex systemic conditions - so technically we would focus on why you are on dialysis and the areas that need support during dialysis (which are not limited to your kidneys). A general idea of how we approach things is found in the article - “treating the cause vs. the symptoms”.

There is much work in this area within Chinese Medicine, as an example, here is a trial starting on deferring dialysis for stage 5 ckd. There are limited general answers with something this serious, however, so working with a practitioner directly over months to years is how to get the best results.

But the short answer is, yes, there is much that can be aided in those situations.
