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...

Authors: Chen B, Li Z, Chen J, Ji J, Shen J, Xu Y, Zhao Y, Liu D, Shen Y, Zhang W, Shen J, Wang Y, Shi Y Abstract Body mass index (BMI) is the most commonly used quantitative measure of adiposity. It is a kind of complex genetic diseases which are caused by multiple susceptibility genes. The first intron of fat mass and obesity-associated (FTO) has been widely discovered to be associated with BMI. Retinitis pigmentosa GTPase regulator-interacting protein-1 like (RPGRIP1L) is located in the upstream region of FTO and has been proved to be linked with obesity through functional tests. We carried out a genetic associa...

The objective of the study was to evaluate the effect of obesity on the pharmacokinetics of the serotonergic antidepressant vortioxetine. Methods Vortioxetine pharmacokinetics were evaluated in 16 otherwise healthy obese volunteers (mean weight, 119 kg; mean body mass index (BMI) 41.8 kg/m2) and in 14 normal-weight subjects (mean weight, 68 kg; mean BMI, 23.0 kg/m2) matched for age. All subjects received a single 5-mg oral dose of vortioxetine once daily for 29 days. Pre-dose plasma vortioxetine concentrations were measured during the 29 days of dosing, and during a 4-week washout period after the last dose. Full 24-hou...

Conclusions This cohort describing the clinical characteristics of 69 patients is the largest cohort studied for THP addiction. Patients from the Centres for Addiction Prevention and Treatment were the youngest and most recently addicted, whereas general practice patients had been addicted for longer and were more socially integrated. This clinical description of THP addiction therefore enables us to identify the patients who are the most at risk, to set up an adapted care protocol.

CONCLUSIONS: Approximately one-in-five patients reported a moderate/major negative impact on their blood glucose level, diabetes, mental well-being, general health, and control over their health following a non-medical switch. Findings suggest that a non-medical switch may have unintended negative health consequences and results in considerable burden across multiple domains for a sizeable minority of patients with T2DM.
