Is Dialysis A Must to Lower Creatinine 9.0Along with GFR, serum creatinine is also used commonly to detect kidney disease patients’ kidney condition. Creatinine 9.0 has been so higher that is more likely to mean stage 5 or end stage renal disease. At this situation, is dialysis a must to lower creatinine 9.0?

In clinical, it indicates patients’ kidney disease has developed into kidney failure or uremic if patients’ creatinine level is higher than 8.0mg/dl.. That is to say, patients’ kidney function may drop to 15% or less.

As the decline of kidney filtration function, more and more waste products and toxins will build up in the body. The long-term deposition of these harmful substances will attack many other important organs as well kidney to cause irreversible damage.

Creatinine 9.0 is a warn of too much creatinine depositing in the blood. If left controlled, severe or even life-threatening complications such as heart failure may appear. Therefore, one treatment to remove these waste products is needed urgently.

Dialysis is one solution to deal with this problem. With the principle of semipermeable membrane, hemodialysis able to eliminate small molecular substances such as creatinine and urea acid from the body.

Here, we must admit that dialysis does have a quick and obvious effect on lowering high creatinine level, but patients find their creatinine level rises again during dialysis session. This is because even though dialysis can replace part of kidney function, it can’t work as effectively as healthy kidneys.

Then, is dialysis a must to lower creatinine 9.0 or is dialysis the only solution? The answer is no. Some alternative treatment shows a better effect on reducing high creatinine level. For example, Immunotherapy and blood pollution therapy both can purify patients’ blood, just as dialysis do, and repair the damaged kidney functioning cells. Therefore, their effects are more permanent.

Each therapy is suitable for different patients. If you are one among them, remember that suitable remedy rather than the best remedy is most helpful for you to control or even reverse your kidney damage.
