FAQs About the Treatment
1. Dosage form and administration
The medicine is compounded into round shaped pills. The recommended dose is three times per day, and 12 g per administration.
2. Response time
In general, patients need 1 to 3 months to show improvement in kidney function as shown by serum creatinine and protein in urine levels.
3. How long do patients need to be on the medicine?
Patients need to be treated for 1 to 3 years to fully recover from kidney disease or achieve a stable kidney function level. There are some patients who have taken the medicine for over 5 years and successfully maintained sufficient kidney function to avoid dialysis.
Relapse is very rare. There are a few instances in which patients, after a successful treatment, suffered kidney disease again due to other medical problems. Generally a second course of treatment would be sufficient to stop the loss of kidney function.
