2.4 Creatinine Level: How Long Before DialysisIn fact, there is long time before dialysis for people with creatinine 2.4. Generally speaking, patients are recommended to take dialysis when the serum creatinine ranges from 5mg/dl to 8mg/dl or kidney function less than 15%. However, if left untreated, creatinine 2.4 will elevate fast and lead to more serious condition.

How serious is creatinine 2.4?

If creatinine elevates, it means more than half of the kidney function has lost. In clinic, Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is divided into five stages, and creatinine 2.4 means the patients are at Stage 3 CKD. At this stage, some symptoms may occur, such as swelling, fatigue, proteinuria, hematuria, back pain, digestive problems, etc.

Some uncontrolled problems such as diarrhea, high blood pressure, dehydration may lead to kidney failure.

How to reduce creatinine 2.4?

Before introducing the treatments for reducing creatinine 2.4, I think it will be better to let you know how does creatinine 2.4 occur. There are two resources: diet and muscle metabolism. Since diet will not raise creatinine to such a high level, creatinine 2.4 means your kidneys are not functioning well.

Therefore, to lower creatinine 2.4, you should keep a restricted diet and improve kidney function.

► Consult your doctor to design a balanced diet

For general people with high creatinine, they need to limit their sodium and protein intake. This is calculated based on the patients’ body weight, fluid intake, urine output, and is also affected by complications the patients are experiencing.

Some foods are not recommended: Red meat, beef, chicken (high in protein); processed foods, canned foods, fast foods, nuts, sausages, bacon, some salad dressings (high in sodium).

► Taking proper treatments to improve kidney function

The key to improve kidney function is to promote blood circulation. Natural methods include Acupuncture, Foot Bath, Enema, Hot Compress Therapy, etc. All these therapies are based on Chinese herbs that can lower creatinine 2.4 without any side effects.
