Kidney Turnaround After Nine Years of CKD Stage 4
A 69-year-old white female started the Wei Laboratories program after nine years of CKD Stage 4 with pre-diabetes. She had a series of UTIs and two kidney infections in the latter 2010s. During the nine years she tried the following to feel and function better, not realizing how KD was affecting her so adversely.

•Functional medicine, especially IV glutathione
•Chiropractic arthrostim treatments on the spinal areas for kidneys
•Body cleanse
•Naturopathic consultation, recommending Ji Xue Teng under Marrow Plus by Health Concerns, which improved her energy
•Naturopathic program (online out of New Zealand) exposed to Rehmannia Endurance by Planetary Herbs for yin deficiency
•Consulted separately with a psychologist and sleep doctor for better sleep
•Taking supplements for better brain function

After success with the Rehmannia formula, the patient decided to start the Wei Labs kidney program late July 2020. She began with the protocol of LC Balancer, Xcel, and KS. At the naturopath’s recommendations, she also started Cordyceps for lungs and kidneys, along with drinking dandelion tea. After two months, the patient started to feel better to the extent that she could attempt a camping trip and organizing all the gear entailed. After one month, the nephrologist took her off the amlodipine BP medicine. After three to six months, the patient experienced these improvements:

•Sleeping greatly improved, don’t have to worry about getting a good night’s sleep. (Still practice good sleep hygiene.)
•Waist/middle slimmed down appreciably; can fit into summer shorts easily
•No hand itching
•Mental affect feeling like ‘I’m swimming in clear water, rather than in a murky lake’
•Cognitive ability much improved; can think and reason better
•Cravings reduced, more appetite control
•Food sensitivities reduced; breakouts on hands and forearms heal faster
•Handwriting improved

During the last nine years, she has worked on and off on temporary and contract jobs, some with compromised performance. Concerned about staying alert in the AMs, the patient worked in the election office last fall and completed the job. Since early December 2019, she has been working remotely--successfully. She also has much improved in organizing her household. She feels as though she is in CKD Stage 3 or even 2.

The lab results are mixed. The BUN dropped from 56/60 to 43. Drinking water with lemon slices, her electrolytes are now within range. The patient’s last hemoglobin was 9.9 yet she enjoys good energy—not lying on the couch with anemia! For the first time in nine years, she declined the EPO shot. The patient does have a few measures that have yet to observe bringing the creatinine down and GFR up.

Early December 2020 her ophthalmologist diagnosed cataracts. It seemed that the kidney disease was leaving waste around her eyes. The Wei Labs formulas Eyebrighter and OptiClear were recommended. After two weeks on this protocol and definitely by week three, she could see far more clearly--without the cloudiness. In the spring, the patient will follow-up with the ophthalmologist.

Overall, the patient is happy and engaged in life again. She wakes up in the mornings ready to carry out her AM routine and proceed joyfully with her day.
