Adding Fu Zheng Qu Zhuo oral liquid (FZQZ) to standard therapies can help prevent the progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD). FZQZ oral liquid - the contents of which include Ren Shen Radix Ginseng, Huang Qi (Radix Astragali), Dang Gui (Radix Angelicae Sinensis), Fu Ling (Sclerotum Poriae Cocos) and Da Huang (Radix et Rhizoma Rhei) - has actions of reinforcing qi and moving blood, resolving dampness and downbearing turbidity. A total of 68 patients with advanced CKD were treated with standard integrated therapy plus FZQZ or placebo (20 mL three times per day) for 12 months. The FZQZ group showed improvement in kidney function scores (including increased glomerular filtration rates and decreased urine protein excretion), compared with the placebo group, whose kidney function declined over the course of the study.
