Patient: Rajat Gupta, 71 years
When I received the news that only 35% of my kidney function was left (CKD Stage 3) and that I would have to undergo dialysis soon, I was overcome with worry. However, a trusted friend recommended that I seek treatment at Renew Medical Center, and I am thrilled that I did.
As a chronic kidney disease patient, leading a normal life was a constant challenge. My uncontrolled blood pressure required multiple medications, and I was taking over 100 units of insulin to control my sugars. I also struggled to sleep and had minimal energy to care for myself.
After undergoing only 9 sessions of the MDS treatment, my insulin requirement dropped to just 20 units per day, and I now only require one blood pressure medication. My
quality of sleep has dramatically improved, and my energy levels have skyrocketed. I can now attend social events, go for evening walks, spend time with my family, and even
Renew Medical Center kept me fully informed throughout the treatment process, and I always had someone to speak with regarding any questions or concerns I had about my medication or diet. I am incredibly grateful to the doctors and team for restoring my
quality of life as a chronic kidney patient. With our patented technology for diabetic kidney disease management, you too can experience a renewed lease on life.
Understanding Diabetic Kidney Disease and Its Challenges
Diabetic Kidney Disease is a chronic condition that occurs as a complication of diabetes. It can cause signiﬁcant damage to the kidneys over time, leading to complications such as kidney failure. While medications and lifestyle modiﬁcations can help control blood sugar levels and blood pressure, they do not fully address the
long-term complications of diabetes, including kidney damage. As such, new treatment options have been developed to address this challenge, including the Microdose System (MDS)
What is the Microdose System (MDS)?
The MDS is a treatment option that has been developed in the USA to help improve
kidney function and halt the progression of DKD. It is designed to restore the periodic cycle of insulin that occurs in healthy physiology, which can help improve kidney
function and prevent further damage. MDS delivers modest, targeted doses of oral glucose, taken as a dextrose beverage, together with the insulin hormone.
How Effective is MDS in Improving Kidney Function?
Studies conducted in the US have evaluated the effectiveness of MDS in improving
kidney function among diabetic and pre-diabetic patients. The results showed that MDS was effective in reversing the effects of Kidney Disease by improving kidney function and halting the progression of the disease. MDS has been shown to reduce proteinuria and creatinine levels, which are indicators of kidney damage, and control blood
pressure, which can worsen the condition. How Does MDS Work?
The MDS care plan typically includes an “Induction Phase” of 2 infusions per week, followed by a reduction to 1 infusion per week for about 90 days. The “Maintenance Phase” is focused on ﬁnding the optimal balance between metabolism and insulin
sensitivity while extending the time between treatments. Patients with type 2 diabetes, prediabetes, and nondiabetic conditions may be able to reduce from 3-hour infusions to 2-hour infusions and achieve four to six weeks between infusions while maintaining optimized metabolism and insulin sensitivity.
Why Are Maintenance Treatments Essential for MDS?
It’s important to note that the beneﬁts of MDS may deteriorate over time if a patient discontinues maintenance treatments. Therefore, maintenance treatments are essential to ensure that the beneﬁts of MDS are sustained over the long term.
Consultation with Healthcare Provider
Every patient’s degree of insulin resistance and eﬃciency of carbohydrate metabolism is unique, so a consultation with a healthcare provider is required to determine medical necessity and establish a physician-directed, individualized care plan. The healthcare
provider will work with the patient to monitor their progress, adjust the dosage as necessary, and ensure that the patient’s condition is managed effectively.
Potential of MDS in Managing Diabetic Kidney Disease
In conclusion, the Microdose System (MDS) shows great potential in improving kidney function among diabetic and pre-diabetic patients. It is a treatment option that is
designed to restore the periodic cycle of insulin that occurs in healthy physiology, which can help improve kidney function and prevent further damage. While maintenance
treatments are essential to ensure that the beneﬁts of MDS are sustained over the long term, a consultation with one of our clinicians can help establish a physician-directed, individualized care plan. With the potential beneﬁts of MDS, it can be an important addition to the treatment options available for managing DKD.
