Patient discussion about kidney function

Q. Last year my doctor diagnosed that my kidney was not functioning well. Can anyone help me? I’m 50 year old male. Last year my doctor diagnosed that my kidney was not functioning well. I intake western medicine for past one year, but I’m not satisfied with that. I like to move to some other treatment. Can anyone help me?

A. Hello Jude, I understand your problem and I do have a similar issue. Initially I was trying with the western meds and it did not give me the desired results. I have skipped them now and have been taking Chinese herbal medicine and trust me I feel much better. Consult a TCM doctor before taking any supplements to improve your kidneys. I wish you to get well soon!!!
