How Do Kidney Patients Reduce Uric Acid
Kidney is the main organ for the excretion of uric acid. Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) are often associated with hyperuricemia (HUA) due to the influence of renal function decline and poor living habits, and studies have confirmed that elevated serum uric acid is an independent risk factor for the occurrence and progression of CKD.
What is HUA?
In normal purine diet stage, hyperuricemia is defined as fasting blood uric acid (SUA) levels at 2 different times on the same day at 420 mol/L for men and 360 mol/L for women.
How do CKD patients treat HUA?
1. Adjust your lifestyle
Avoid high purine foods such as animal offal and control meat, seafood and beans. Drink moderate amounts of water according to your kidney function, and avoid alcohol and beverages rich in fructose. Follow a low salt diet and take regular exercise. Avoid medicines which can increase uric acid like thiazide, loop diuretic, small doses of salicylic acid, L-dopa, cyclosporine A, tacrolimus.
2. Alkalized urine
Urine pH value of 6.2-6.9 is conducive to the dissolution of urate crystals and excretion from urine. Therefore, the pH value of urine should be closely monitored in the process of alkalization, and the drug regimen should be adjusted in time. Commonly used drugs include sodium bicarbonate, citric acid and its potassium sodium mixture.
3. Use hypouricemic medicines
First-line uric acid-lowering drugs include: drugs that inhibit the production of uric acid (allopurinol and febuxostat tablets) and drugs that promote the excretion of uric acid (benbromarone and benemid) are candidates.
4. Repair kidney damage and improve renal function
The root cause of high uric acid level is from injured kidneys and declined glomeruli. Then, if you want to reduce high uric acid level radically, you should restore injured kidney tissues and improve your renal function. Here we recommend Chinese medicine treatments like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Ozone Therapy, Chinese Medicine Detoxification Therapy, Chinese Invigorating Therapy, Negative Oxygen Ion Therapy, Double Filtration Plasmapheresis, Cupping and Moxibustion Therapy, etc. They first purify your blood through removing wastes and toxins from your body. This can give you a clean blood environment. Then Chinese medicines can arrive at kidney lesion directly to restore injured kidney tissues and improve kidney function through dilating blood vessels, improving blood circulation, preventing inflammation and coagulation, degrading extracellular matrix and providing nutrients. When renal function is improved, excess uric acid can be removed from your body.
