A 20 cases of renal failure patients of both sexes (9 females’ and 11 males) (age range 23 to 71 years) were selected. Serum creatinine before and after the treatment were reported. Also, estimated Glomerular Filtration Rates (eGFR) were calculated. Results: Mean serum creatinine levels after herbal treatment for all selected cases were decreased by (2.8 ± 1.4) as compared to mean serum creatinine levels before the treatment (3.9 ± 1.8). The majority of patients have been transmitted from advanced stages of CKD to lower stages based on eGFR.
