Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Dialysis and its complications were debated recently. There was lack of an adjuvant renal replacement method to reduce the complications of patients with chronic renal failure and dialysis itself.

MATERIALS AND METHODS:

In this article, we reviewed the role of thermal sweating in treating of the patients with chronic renal failure, and the role of traditional Chinese medicine in the therapy of chronic kidney diseases.

RESULTS:

Thermal sweating can reduce interdialytic weight gain and improve the patients' blood pressure; Chinese herbal medicine can promote the excretion of uremic toxicities and relieve the skin disorders of these patients.

CONCLUSIONS:

Traditional Chinese medicine-mediated hot bath could be one of the adjuvant renal replacement methods.
