EECP improves kidney blood flow and helps improving kidney filtration. It also reduces
harmful hormones, which increases blood pressure and damage the kidney.
The two Kidneys in your body act like a garbage disposal system. All the waste
products from the bodys 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.
Kidney Failure Preventive Steps.
The steps you need to follow are :
1.Keeping you active with regular exercise.
2.Eat a healthy diet.
3.Weight reduction if obese or overweight.
4.Control blood pressure & diabetes.
6.Hydrate yourself adequately ( Water intake ).
7.Finally, very important to avoid taking unnecessary drugs, especially pain killers.
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 endothelial 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.
