New Alternative Treatments For Kidney Problems

There’s something you should know about chronic kidney disease. Most doctors will tell you there is no alternative treatments for kidney problems besides costly dialysis or a transplant to deal with impaired renal function. What Is Kidney Failure? Kidney dialysis is a treatment that uses a special machine to filter harmful wastes, salt and excess from your blood. But there is another option. It’s called stem cell biotherapy, and it offers new hope to those with this life-threatening disease. You may think your kidneys are just fine and you have nothing to worry about. But consider this… What Causes Kidney Failure? High blood pressure is the most common cause of kidney failure. And that’s not the only risk factor for chronic kidney disease. There’s also high cholesterol, diabetes, smoking, obesity and turning 65 years old. Who’s Affected by Chronic Kidney Disease? In fact, chronic kidney disease affects one in seven adult Americans.1 Conventional advice says the only options are dialysis or a transplant. But I help my patients avoid and treat kidney disease in a much more natural fashion. How Does Dialysis Work? Dialysis requires you to be hooked up to a machine three times a week for four hours per session. The annual cost for this treatment is about $80,000 per patient and rising. The total amount of private and public funds spent on the procedure is staggering. A University of Virginia study found that Medicare alone spends $50 billio...

In this study, we screened 110 Taiwanese children (61 males and 49 females) with T1D onset before the age of 5 years for mutations of INS and KCNJ11. We identified one missense heterozygous mutation in KCNJ11 (c.989A>G, p.Y330C) and no INS mutations among 28 probands. This is the first study to screen patients with autoantibody-negative T1D diagnosed before the age of 5 years for INS and KCNJ11 mutations in Taiwan. Although KCNJ11 mutations are always reported in patients with permanent neonatal diabetes, this gene mutation can be detected after 6 months of age. Further studies in other patients with type 1B diabetes an...

ConclusionThis endoscopy-based study revealed the most common histology of benign SB tumors were hamartoma and adenoma, and malignant ones were lymphomas, GISTs, adenocarcinomas and metastatic cancers. Most of them were male gender, except for GISTs, and with proximal location, except for lymphomas. Further large-scale investigation efforts are warranted to elucidate the epidemiology of SB tumors.

The most characteristic marker of DKD is albuminuria, which is associated with renal disease progression and cardiovascular events. Renal hemodynamics changes, oxidative stress, inflammation, hypoxia and overactive renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) are involved in ...

Conclusionn-Butanolic fraction of Thymus linearis possesses endothelium independent vasorelaxant effects in coronary artery by direct acting on the smooth muscles. These effects involve the elevation of the cyclic AMP and cyclic GMP possibly through the inhibition of various PDEs. GCMS analysis revel presence of thymole and carvacrol as major constituents. Furthermore, these investigations also support the folklore use of Thymus linearis in hypertension.Graphical abstract

ConclusionsThe experimental results from the pharmacological research enable the validation of their traditional uses in several of the groups of diseases in the countries of origin and reveal these plants to be a valuable source for therapeutic molecules. However, more toxicity assays and clinical trials would be necessary to establish optimal and safe doses of consumption on the application of these medicinal plants.Graphical abstract
