The two Kidneys in your body act like a garbage disposal system. All the waste products from the body's metabolism are filtered through the kidneys and excreted in the urine. They play a significant role in eliminating excess fluid, controlling electrolytes balance, and blood pressure.
We are now more dependent on our kidneys than before. It may be due to the intake of medications for our illness and various supplements. All these added so-called essentials have to be excreted through our kidneys. The most common cause of Kidney failure is long term diabetes and hypertension. When these two conditions are poorly managed; eventually, they result in affecting your kidneys, causing failure.
You can initiate early preventive steps to minimize or eliminate your chance of ending up in kidney failure.
EECP treatment can improve blood flow to the kidneys up to 21%. This increase in blood flow can help kidney to filter your waste product in your blood more efficiently. In one Indian study, even in patients with advanced heart and kidney disease, EECP has shown to improve the glomerular filtration rate (GFR), a measure to assess kidney working improved up to 20%.
Some of the harmful hormones like endothelin and renin, which cause vasoconstriction of your blood vessels and increase your blood pressure reduce by 75-80% during a course of EECP treatment. EECP also is shown to increase your urine put and helps to eliminate excess sodium and chloride. All these effects could encourage EECP as a preventive and wellness treatment to prevent kidney failure and enhance kidney function when the damage is very minimal.
In Diabetic and hypertension patients, where protein leakage in your urine is considered as an early sign of kidney disease, preventive EECP treatment will have significant benefits in preventing kidney failure.
