Is It Possible to Reverse Renal Failure?
What I am writing about today is a personal issue I would like your opinion on. I searched the site and didn't find much on reversing renal failure. I have been a Type 1 diabetic most of my adult life and on insulin. In the past 10 years or so I have been spilling protein in my urine and recently, after a severe episode of flu, went over the edge to stage 5 ESRD and was started on hemodialysis. This is the result of chronic renal insufficiency. Severe hypertension unable to be controlled played a big role too. Seems everything has gone downhill for me since then.
I am fairly new to alternative medicine and so this disease is far beyond what might have helped if I had started earlier.
Do you think there is anything at all that could help me reverse some of this kidney damage? Dr. ____, the author and advocate of hi dose iodine tx, has stated that this treatment can regenerate kidney tissue and recommended the ingestion of 10 gtts/day of Lugols iodine. I am aware that hi dose iodine can lower insulin requirements. He states it takes about 6 weeks to notice a change in bloodwork. What do you think?
I feel very trapped right now in the allopathic medical realm. They frighten me that I could die if I don't continue with dialysis, yet I still urinate, clear and fairly good amounts. I can well understand Joyce's point of view. My bloodwork for kidney function is indeed very bad. (Creatinine is 7.8, GFR is very low, and has not improved over time) Is it too late to hope for some improvement??? How I wish I had looked into alternatives and know what I know now, many years ago. Thank God for your insights and knowledge.
