Kidney disease - June 6th 2018, 04:46 PM

Anyone know the treatments for kidney disease? Anything that can be done at home, or are the only treatments done through drugs and clinical treatments?
I have someone who's suffering from hematuria and inflammation from steroids, which are needed for another condition. Anything helps.

Treatment might depend on the cause and severity of the kidney disease. If it's pretty severe, then it may require hospital treatment such as dialysis (may also be done at home). Otherwise, it may require medication and lifestyle changes (depending on the cause, for example, if the person is overweight and has diabetes then losing weight in a healthy way might help).

You might want to check out this article from the NHS for more information on the treatments available.

You can also ask the doctor for more information about the different kinds of treatments available. They should take in consideration what the person would want if it's possible e.g. treatment at home.

Hello,

I would suggest talking to the doctor about the possible treatments because it is going to vary on a case by case basis. Trying to figure the appropriate treatment without the help of the doctor will likely cause you to get confused and maybe cause anxiety due to a lot of research indicating things being more sever than they truly are. Reaching out to a doctor would be the best way to get accurate information and, possibly, help the person you know get the right treatment.
