HKBU to announce clinical observation results on Chinese medicine treatment for chronic renal failure on Tuesday


The incidence of chronic kidney disease has recently been found to be in an upward trend in the world. The number of people suffering from the disease amounts to approximately 10% of the overall population. If a patient with chronic kidney disease does not receive appropriate treatment, a severe condition such as chronic renal failure may follow.
Chronic renal failure is a progressive illness for which no obvious symptoms may be observed in its early stage. At a worse stage of the disease patients may suffer symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, oedema, nausea, retching and itchiness. They will develop various complications when the kidney function deteriorates. Terminal patients are required to receive treatments such as heamodialysis, peritoneal dialysis or a kidney transplant.

The School of Chinese Medicine (SCM) of Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) recently conducted a study regarding the data analysis and clinical observation of 162 patients treated for chronic renal failure. HKBU’s Senior Lecturer of the SCM Clinical Division, Dr Xu Daji, will announce the results of the findings on Tuesday. Two patients will share their information about the treatment they received. Details of the session are as follows:
