Creatinine 4.86 and BUN 54.9 in PKDPolycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is a genetic disorder, which is characterized by a cluster of fluid-filled sacs on the kidneys. If the cyst is small, it won’t cause any symptoms and is harmless. Creatinine 4.86 and BUN (blood urea nitrogen) 54.9 means the cysts have enlarged and cause renal damage.

What does 4.86 and BUN 54.9 mean in PKD?

Creatinine is the by-product of muscle metabolism, which is discharged by the kidneys as a waste. Creatinine level in the blood is always taken as an indicator of how well you kidneys are working. In clinic, kidney disease is divided into five stages according to different serum creatinine levels. Creatinine 4.86 is much higher than the normal range (0.5-1.1mg/dl for female and 0.6-1.2mg/dl for male) and it means you are in Stage 4 Chronic Kidney Disease. This condition is very serious and if it is left untreated, it will be easy to progress into Stage 5 CKD, or Kidney Failure.

Treatment for creatinine 4.86 and BUN 54.9 in PKD

1. Medicines

In most cases, the doctor will prescribe you some medicines to relieve symptoms or complications, such as:

Painkillers: They are normally used to treat back pain, flank pain or abdominal pain caused by enlarged renal cysts.

Antihypertensive drugs: High blood pressure is one of the common complications of PKD, so well controlled blood pressure is very essential.

Antibiotics: Infection, including kidney infection, urinary tract infection and renal cyst infection are also common in PKD. Antibiotics are mainly to treat various infections.

NSAIDs: Its full name is Non-steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs. They are prescribed if you have proteinuria.

All these medicines indeed can help you relieve your suffering but their effect is temporary and have not solve the underlying problem.

2. Dialysis

Dialysis is for those who have Kidney Failure or severely uncontrolled condition. Its effect is also limited as it just an alternative treatment. Dialysis cannot improve your kidney function.

3. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy

The reason why I recommend you this therapy is due to its safety and effects. This therapy is the combination of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and modern technology. By micronizing the herbs, we can make fully used of the medicines. The effective ingredients cannot only shrink the kidney cyst but also can repair damaged renal tissues. That is to say, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can improve kidney function, which is the key of treatment.
