Acupuncture would certainly be appropriate but it is difficult to give much information without seeing the patient. There are some herbal formulas that would foster the kidney qi but if he is waiting for a transplant you would have to be extremely careful with what you use and, even better, be in touch with his doctors before prescribing anything.


To offer some points I would first like to know why his kidney was removed initially? How old he is and any other medical conditions that he has currently and any serious conditions he had in the past.


Generally, acupressure and/or needling on KD 3 would be useful as would CV 4 and/or CV 6, and ST 36 for general vitality and/or immunity possibly with moxibustion on any or all of the above. Again without a lot more information it would be hard to generalize treatment points, but the points for Kidney Yang deficiency (possibly qi or jing) would be appropriate.

iam so happy to partcipate..........in such case of single kidney it IS so diffiacult to take a slow steps because rate of toxins accumulation {urea and creatinine} will exceed qi activation


but cupping{hijama} may help ,so wet cupping can extract urea and creatinine out


and all cases i had seen having end stage renal disease must had transplantation as a best solution


because deterioration of the patient will be very rapid because of ureamia and hyperkalaemia


thanks and go well
