Is There Another Option To Lower High PTH Level In Dialysis Patients

Details: Hi I want to ask for some guidance. My mother is on dialysis and her PTH level is high. Is there another option to help lower it?

Expert Answer



PTH stands for parathyroid hormone. If you are on dialysis, you will recognize it as one of your routine blood tests. The key purpose of the parathyroid glands is to keep the calcium and phosphorus in the blood at a constant and normal level. But in kidney disease, PTH level usually increases. As blood phosphorus levels rise, so do PTH levels. Besides, the injured kidney can not activate vitamin D. Without activated vitamin D, calcium cannot be absorbed from your intestines into your blood. When blood calcium level drops, the parathyroids can produce more PTH. Hyperparathyroidism often develops. Then even more PTH is generated.

Dialysis can remove some phosphorus and PTH out of your body. But it is not enough. Dialysis can not repair your kidney damage so PTH rise can not be reduced from the root. In our hospital, we recommend a series of Chinese medicine treatments to repair injured kidney tissues and improve renal function so as to lower down high PTH radically and naturally. What do our treatments include? They include Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Medicated Foot Bath, Medicinal Soup, Mai Kang Mixture, Moxibustion Therapy, Steaming Therapy, Enema Therapy and Acupuncture, etc. Before repairing your kidney damage, Chinese medicine treatments first cleanse your blood. They can remove toxins and wastes from your blood and kidney intrinsic cells effectively via urine, bowel movement and sweat glands. This can give you a clean blood environment. Then Chinese medicine treatments can dilate blood vessels, improve blood circulation, prevent inflammation and coagulation, degrade extracellular matrix and provide nutrients. In this way, renal function can be improved and then high PTH can be reduced as well.

Alternative therapy for high PTH is Chinese medicine treatment. If you have any question, you can leave a message below or consult our online doctor directly. We will reply you as soon as possible.
