Lin Mei's Story
Name: Mei Lin
Diagnosis: advanced stage of hypertensive nephropathy, i.e., Renal Failure induced by high blood pressure (hypertension)
Condition before Treatment
Mrs. Lin found out her high blood pressure twenty years ago during a physical examination. The blood pressure was 160/80mmHg and it reached up to 200/100mmHg in the worst point. Mrs. Lin took medications only when she experienced dizziness or headache, with no regular medications measures.
Mrs. Lin experienced frequent urine at night in 2006. As she said, “four or five times one night.” Due to her carelessness and lack of awareness, this obvious symptom has been overlooked. She missed her last chance to treat the disease at this time.
Mrs. Lin suffered from vomiting and nausea fifteen days ago causeless. She went to the local hospital and was told that she had developed Renal Insufficiency. She was afraid of the frequent dialysis and percutaneous nephrostomy. She sought for a more reliable treatment to Peking Tung Shin Tang Chinese Medical Hospital.
Start of the Treatment: Nov. 23, 2007
Treatment from Peking Tung Shin Tang Chinese Medical Hospital
After she hospitalized, Mrs. Lin was diagnosed with Renal Failure, which was induced by her years’ of hypertension history. What’s worse, she had renal anemia, hypokalemia (low levels of potassium), hyponatremia (low levels of sodium) and metabolic acidosis and so on.
Main treatment from Peking Tung Shin Tang Chinese Medical Hospital is Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. The traditional Chinese Medicine works for reducing the blood pressure.
Other treatment plans include:
A. Focusing on dealing with the low levels of potassium starts from the treatment on renal tubular damages.
B. Improve the respiratory tract symptoms
C. Control the blood pressure. By this means, the progressive development of her condition can be stopped.
D. Avoid infections and flu.
Statistics before the Treatment
WBC 5.1×109/L, HGB69g/L, BUN28mmol/L, Scr580umol/L, K(+)3.04mmol/L, AB15.2mmol/L
Condition after Treatment
After treating hypokalemia for a period of time, Mrs. Lin’s level of potassium became normal and the fatigue improved greatly.
After dealing with the digestive symptoms by Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, her internal environment disorders have been corrected, and the appetite was regained again.
Other Tips for Those Patients:
1. If you drink, quit it or limit the amount.
2. Stay away from the plucks of animals.
3. Limit the amount of salt intake to 6g/day.
4. Form a good habit to help you avoid or control the condition from deteriorating.
