Nowadays, acupuncture for kidney patients has become the focus for its effectiveness and security. We will review the therapeutic effects and mechanisms of different acupuncture for kidney patients.
High blood pressure needs to be controlled well to avoid further kidney damage. A recent human case study measured significant results using acupuncture points LI4, LI11, ST36 and ST9. A patient began the study with blood pressure at 160/100mmHg. Medications lowered the blood pressure to 150/99mmHg. Acupuncture was added to the clinical regime and the blood pressure reduced to 130/80mmHg. This is a modern example of combining acupuncture with medications to achieve optimum results in patient outcomes.
Acupuncture was also helpful in eliminating the side effects of the antihypertensive medication. Acupuncture points CV4, CV6 and SP6 were used to fight against flushing, diarrhea, palpitations, fatigue, reduced sexual function and several other adverse effects from the antihypertensive medicines.
