[The clinico-laboratory effects of acupuncture in patients with glomerulonephritis].

[Article in Ukrainian]


As many as 104 patients with different clinical forms and variants of glomerulonephritis were examined and treated with acupuncture. This mode of treatment was found out to positively influence the level of hemoglobin, ESR, eosinophilia, making for diminution of proteinuria and erythrocyturia, returning hemostasis and blood biochemical spectrum (proteinogrammes, levels of cholesterol, uric acid) to normal, with the level of arterial pressure being normalized in patients with mild hypertension or reduced in those with moderately severe to severe hypertension. Acupuncture is recommended as a monotherapeutic modality in the treatment of uric syndrome with a hematuric component in a combined treatment of nephrotic syndrome and hypertension, which attempt will, we believe, help in preventing side effects of the drugs employed.
