Additional Information

Official title Phase 1 Study to Examine the Use of Far Infrared Radiation for Renal Failure.
Description There are many causes of chronic kidney disease. The most common cause is diabetes mellitus. Acute renal failure is a rapidly progressive loss of renal function, generally characterized by body fluids disturbances and electrolyte derangement. It is believed that far infrared radiation of the central nervous system, the endocrine system and the kidneys will help in the management of renal failure and a possible cure.
