Manish Shukla's Story
NAME: Manish Shukla
AGE: 29 years old
DIAGNOSIS: IgA Nephropathy, Chronic Renal Failure (CRF)
CONDITION BEFORE TREATMENT
Manish is an Indian. He had IgA Nephropathy and didn’t pay much attention to his illness condition. He didn’t care much about it, until, one day he saw the swelling in his legs. He was prescribed with some medications dealing with his puffiness from his doctor. More and more symptoms appeared after that, such as numb lips and mouth and cramp etc. “All these annoying signs rendered me almost incapable of working.” said Manish.
Manish was told that he suffered from Chronic Renal Failure in January 2012. “It was terrifying. I thought I might die because of this. I didn’t get married, and have no chance to enjoy my life yet!”
Manish then began to seek treatments in India, he chose to take stem cells transplant in a clinic. After 12 times of stem cell injection, “I have a hunch that my condition was getting worse instead of getting better.” Manish was right about his hunches after he got the lab results. The serum creatinine didn’t lower down but increased to 4.8mg/dL. “I am scared to death but the doctor told me it happens. I didn’t believe that nonsense anymore. After spending so much money with little effect, I put my last bet on China.”
And that’s why Manish went to Peking Tung Shin Tang Chinese Medical Hospital.

CONDITION AFTER TREATMENT:
Manish experienced hyperkalemia, high blood pressure and mild swelling as he hospitalized in our hospital. Hyperkalemia was the culprit of his numb lips and mouth, and of course, affected his appetite. The hypertension made him feel dizziness and nausea. Manish had mild anemia resulting in pale face and cold limbs.
“One thing I felt good is when I hospitalized and took tests, before the treatment, my doctor communicated with me thoroughly regarding my status, treatment procedure and recovering period etc. Those made me relax and had more confidence about their treatments.”
Manish’s illness condition improved progressively during the course of his treatment, such as, “My palm sweat! It barely sweated for years.” Doctor explained him this is mainly because our Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, a kind of traditional Chinese medicine therapy, which works for blood circulation. Improved blood circulation benefits sweating, which is a good sign.
“Manish’s pale face was gone. Different from he just arrived, he is more energetic and talkative than before.” said Tiken, another patient lived next door to Manish.
“He eat lot, not just like before.” said Lydia. Because of Manish wasn’t used to the food we provided here, so his nurse Lydia, cook for him every day.
“I will discharge the day after tomorrow, but I want to tell you something. You should definitely come here and give yourself a chance to fight. We deserve a better life than now.” said Manish in lobby.
