Increased Kidney Function and Normalized Blood Pressure in CKD Patient
A 75-year-old male patient presented with frequent urination, joint aches, low energy, lower extremity edema, anemia, and high blood pressure of 159/81. The patient had a history of bladder infections stemming from the Vietnam War. He had been diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa, congestive heart failure with 2 previous carotid surgeries on the right side, and stage 4 chronic kidney disease. Bloodwork on September 18th, 2017 showed GFR at 19, calcium at 9.8, BUN at 68 and creatinine at 3.02. The primary care physician was addressing his conditions through 3 blood pressure medications (metolazone, metoprolol, amlodipine), 4 urinary retention medications (furosemide, terazosin, tamsulosin, finasteride), and a statin (lipitor) for his heart. The patient was likely soon going to be recommended dialysis and was looking for a solution to enhance his quality of life.

On Oct. 26th, 2017, the patient started on 4 bottles of LC Balancer, Xcel, KS, Formula C, Anemic, and CV at full dose. LC Balancer, Xcel, KS and Formula C were added to increase microcirculation, restore kidney filtration capability, reduce kidney inflammation, and help repair the kidney structure which then leads to improved function. Anemic formula helps improve red blood cells production while CV was added to remove plague and repair artery damage. Within one month, the patient had reported having higher energy levels. The patient did lose some weight, but Dr. Lewis suspected the initial weight loss could be due to improved kidney function and its ability to filter out waste better.

The patient continued on 3 more months of the same protocol. On February 28th, 2018, the patient reported having the best sleep he has had in a long time. He had been experiencing pain with the left hip due to the cold and damp weather and Dr. Lewis suggested 6 Large Whitee patches to help provide blood flow and increased nutrient supply to the area. On March 1st, 2018, Blood work showed increased GFR at 29, decreased calcium at 9.2, decreased BUN at 50.14 and decreased creatinine at 2.18. His blood pressure was also measured in the normal range at 108/63. He also reported gaining 4 lbs. Due to these improvements, Dr. Lewis suggested the patient be on 2/3 dose starting April and the patient is looking forward to checking in with his primary care physician in hopes of remove or lowering his blood pressure medications.
