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

浸會大學下周二發佈中醫藥治療慢性腎衰臨床觀察結果

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:

Date:    6 June 2017 (Tuesday)

Venue:  SCM 809, 8/F Jockey Club School of Chinese Medicine Building
            HKBU Baptist University Road campus (new campus)

現時全球慢性腎臟病發病率正不斷上升,患病人數約接近總人口的百分之十。若慢性腎臟病患者沒有得到妥善合適的治療,或有機會令病情惡化而演變成慢性腎衰。
   
慢性腎衰是一種進展性疾病,患者早期可能沒有特殊症狀,但病情進一步加劇時,則有可能出現倦怠、乏力、水腫、噁心、嘔吐、皮膚瘙癢等症狀。當患者腎功能嚴重惡化時,更會出現各種併發症。晚期的腎衰患者需要進行血液透析、腹膜透析或腎移植等治療。
   
香港浸會大學中醫藥學院最近對接受中醫治療的162名慢性腎衰患者進行臨床觀察,負責項目的中醫藥學院臨床部高級講師徐大基博士將於下周二發佈觀察所得,並邀得兩位患者分享他們的治療過程。分享會詳情如下:
