The clinical and laboratory investigation was done on 40 patients with kidney disfunction (glomerulonefritis), treated by standard medicines with regulary infrared total body heating (from 15-20 to 40 min) daily during 10 days. Control group of 37 patients, was treated only by standard medicines. The thermochambers construction forces the possibility of normal temperature air breathing under the radial skin heating to 50-60 degrees C. It was shown, that hypertensions, dropsy manifestation and nitrogen contents in blood significantly decreased in comperison with the control group of patients. The positive effects in laboratory dates was shown in 65%; the subjective reports--in 100% patients. These data may be conformed to widley using infrared chamber procedures for combinative drugs and thermal treating patients with kidney disfunction.
