Lucas Riley, IgA Nephropathy, USA
NAME: Lucas Riley
AGE: 7 years old
DIAGNOSIS: IgA Nephropathy
CONDITION BEFORE TREATMENT
Lucas experienced flu half year ago in 2011. He suffered from gross hematuria and bubble urine after the cold was recovered. “I was terrified when I saw the blood in toilet.” said Sharon, Lucas’ mum.
“Ian and I took Lucas to see our family doctor immediately. But Dr. Shepherd referred us to a nephrologist in local hospital. I thought it can’t be good and shed tears all the way. Lucas didn’t know what happened and kept asking me, ‘mummy, was I bad? Why you cry?’” The physician ran several tests and diagnosed him Nephrotic Syndrome. “He prescribed Lucas some hormone medications, and told us the disease was pretty normal in children.”
Lucas took hormones to treat the disease, but received poor result and he experienced puffy face. “Lucas couldn’t open his eyes at the worst point! I can do nothing but seeing him suffering from this. This made me devastated.” sobbed Sharon. Ian, Lucas’ father began, “my friend in California, a Chinese American, recommended us Huaxia Kidney Disease Hospital, and that’s why we’re here.”
START OF THE TREATMENT: April 16, 2011
TREATMENT FROM Huaxia KIDNEY DISEASE HOSPITAL
Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy (child-specific), 2 times/day, 45 min/time
Other western medicines
CONDITION AFTER TREATMENT
After Lucas hospitalized in our hospital, he was diagnosed with IgA Nephropathy instead of Nephrotic Syndrome. So we changed the treatment plan. This is because IgA Nephropathy is an intractable kidney disease, simple usage of hormone is far from enough. That’s little Lucas suffered a lot but with poor result.
“Lucas’ urine turned yellow after five-day treatment. Dr. Wang said it was a good sign. It means that the changed color and matters discharged along with his urine.”
Of course, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is not enough; Lucas’ attending doctor used some other western medicines to boost his kidney function and deal with the disease. The little patient had no gross hematuria and bubble urine half month later. His swelling face greatly relieved since receiving treatment here.
