Creatinine 4.7: Do I Have to Start Dialysis

My doctor suggests me to start dialysis, because my creatinine leve has risen to 4.7. Do I have to start kidney dialysis with creatinine 4.7?

The Doctor Answered:

Creatinine 4.7: Do I Have to Start DialysisCreatinine is one factor that determines when kidney disease patients have to begin dialysis, but it isn’t the only determinant.

In clinic, we always see some kidney disease patients, whose creatinine level has been up to more than 8 mg/dl, still live without dialysis, because they have less complications and develop a healthy lifestyle and diet plan. Besides, correct medicated treatment is the key to delay or even avoid dialysis. To help you achieve this, we give three suggestions.

1. Consume more foods that can help boost kidney function: According to kidney experts, berries, red bell pepper, cabbage and some other foods contain rich vitamin C, flavonoid or other antioxidants, all of which are helpful to improve kidney function.

2. Use some herbal tea: Dandelion root, nettle leaf and salvia are proven to increase damaged kidney’s filtration function, thus lowering high blood pressure.

3. Take correct medicated treatment: Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Immunotherapy and Blood Pollution Therapy are used maturely in reverse kidney disease patients’ condition. You can learn more about them with the online doctor’s help.
