Reduction of Blood Pressure and Weight Loss of CKD Patient
A 54-year-old female presented with Stage 4 Chronic Kidney Disease. Her kidney function has been steadily declining for the last 12 years under her primary care physician. As of February of 2018, her GFR was 27, Serum Creatinine was 2.04 mg/dL and BUN was 28 mg/dL (normal range GFR >90, Serum Creatinine 0.6 - 1.1 mg/dL, BUN 7-20 mg/dL). The patient had anemia with hemoglobin values of 11.9 g/dL (normal range 12.0 - 15.5 g/dL) and had been on iron tablets and vitamin D. The patient was once on 5 different blood pressure medication, currently on 3 blood pressure medications, but still suffered from high blood pressure, 160/80 mmHg (normal 120/80 mmHg). She was overweight at 198lbs, 5 feet 3 inches tall. Her main symptoms involved feeling fatigue and often felt she had no energy.
The patient sought out Ela in hopes of a better solution. Ela advised the patient to make lifestyle and dietary changes such as eliminating red meat, soda, and sweets in addition to some supplements to help improve her digestion. She was also put on Wei products to help improve her kidney structure and function which consisted of LC Balancer, Xcel, KS and Formula C at full dosage and Anemic formula at one-fourth dosage.
Within 2 weeks of the programs, the patient reported that she was feeling less fatigue and had a surge of energy. On March 1st, 2018, the patient reported that her blood pressure was around 112/68 mmHg and 109/62 mmHg. This was very surprising to her and her cardiologist because it had been such a long time since she had normal blood pressure and was suggested to keep on the program. Due to this, her cardiologist took her off of one blood pressure medication as she no longer needed it. The new dietary changes also helped the patient lose 19 lbs. during the first month.
The patient is very happy with her results is currently continuing her second month. She is due for another blood work to see what the progress has been.
