Q: I just found out that the reason for my brother's kidney failure is rapid progressive Glomerulonephritis also known as crescent Glomerulonephritis. His GFR is at 9. Are you telling me that cell treatment can help him? That would be wonderful.
The only thing that my brother has been doing is dialysis and nothing else. We will mostly likely choose the cell therapy path. How much will the treatment cost and how long will my brother have to stay in your hospital?
A: RPGN (rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis) is the most serious disease among all kinds of Nephritis. The disease occurs suddenly and rapidly, if there is no effective treatment, RPGN is dangerous to life or patients have to live by dialysis in about 6 months. So the only way in western medicine is dialysis.
However, dialysis can only eliminate toxins, how about renal function?
Don't worry, to this disease, if we can treat it from the root, it can be treated well. Seeing from immunology, it is the accumulation of immune complex like C3, ANCA, IgG and so on that lead to the damage on kidneys. There are treatments can help eliminate all these immune complex, stop the new secreting of IC and repair the damaged kidneys, the aggravation can be controlled well.
We will apply systematic treatment, which includes Chinese medicine, Micro-Chinese Medicine, immune therapy and other treatments so that we can help him recover rapidly. The treatments will last for about few months.
