So if we want to prevent renal failure, we must prevent the infection, such as catching a cold, rheumatism, wind fever, hot poison, damp heat etc. So we should avoid streaming sweat in wind, hanging out in rain days, wearing wet clothes etc.

Therefore, patients can’t take anti-inflammatory or analgesic drugs casually. Such as antibiotics like gentamicin, the drug containing potassium and mercury and the traditional Chinese medicines which are too hot or too cold, like Fructus Xanthii, thunder god vine, or radix aconiti agrestis..

Because influenza may aggravate nearly forty percent of chronic nephritis patients’ condition, and chronic nephritis is the first primary disease causing kidney failure. Therefore, we must attach great importance to the prevention of catching cold in our daily life.
