High creatinine level: When do I Need to Receive Dialysis

2013-09-24 17:25

Creatinine means chemical waste products from our muscles. Healthy kidneys can filter them out with urine. When kidneys are damaged to a large extent, high creatinine level will occur. And dialysis may be recommended by their doctors. Then when do patients need to receive dialysis when there is high creatinine level?

As a major index to measure renal function, creatinine level can remain stable. In normal condition, it is usually 0.6-1.2mg/dL for male and 0.5-1.1 mg/dL for female.

When do I need to receive dialysis

In normal condition, patients may be suggested to undergo dialysis when creatinine level elevates to 5. Because this condition usually indicate too much toxins in the blood and they may cause serious condition to our internal organs. After research, it has been proven that patients do not need to undergo dialysis when they are diagnosed with high creatinine level.

Actually, creatinine level is not the only index to judge when dialysis is required. Other important figures like GFR, renal function, creatinine clearance rate can also be helpful.

There is no doubt that dialysis can lower creatinine, but in fact, dialysis has some shortcomings. And they can be concluded like this: dialysis can not repair damaged renal tissues from the root cause. What’s more, if patients stop undergoing dialysis casually, there can be more serious complications.

What is the effective treatment to reduce high creatinine level?

At our PKD clinic, we recommend patients with Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. This therapy is applied externally, and the carefully selected herbal medicines can effect on the renal area directly. After a period of treatment, the high creatinine level can be lowered to a large extent and the progression of dialysis can be delayed effectively.
