Can Increasing Dialysis Help Reduce Urea and CreatinineDialysis is also called “artificial kidney” because it does kidney’s work to filter blood wastes and toxins. Can increasing dialysis help reduce urea and creatinine?

How does dialysis reduce creatinine and urea?

There are two options of dialysis: Hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. They remove blood waste and extra fluid by different ways. Each type has its advantages and disadvantages on treating kidney disease.

How much waste or fluid they can remove depends on the speed and frequency of dialysis. You cannot change the speed and times of dialysis on your own, because it should be closely monitored and adjusted by your health-care provide to prevent some side effects.

Can increasing dialysis help reduce urea and creatinine?

Maybe sometimes. But patients will experience some side effect of dialysis changes. In addition, those patients who have long term dialysis are likely to lose more kidney function, because during dialysis the kidneys are “abandoned”. As a result, more and more wastes like creatinine and urea accumulate inside the body. Finally, the kidneys lose all function, and dialysis patients have to save the life by receiving a kidney transplant.

How to reduce creatinine and urea other than dialysis?

In that dialysis cannot work as well as healthy kidneys, it cannot replace kidney’s work. Actually, as long as you still have remaining kidney function, you can take treatment to protect and enhance this part of renal function. In that case, I recommend you to take traditional Chinese herbs. The main function of herbs is to increase blood circulation and repair damaged renal tissues. Therefore, kidney function can be improved and urea and creatinine can be filtered naturally and effectively.
