An 85 year old woman diagnosed with kidney atrophy by ultrasound is found to have high levels of mercury and other toxic metals on laboratory testing. Three large decayed amalgam fillings in the patient’s lower jaw are observed, and the patient is advised to have them removed immediately. A modification of Da Zao Wan (Great Creation Pill) is administered, followed by reductions in both blood urea nitrogen and creatinine. A follow up visit with a nephrologist four years later indicates normal kidney function.
