How to reduce creatinine level in PKD? For PKD patients who want to lower high creatinine level effectively, the treatment must be started with shrinkage of kidney cysts, as increasing and enlarged cysts is the root cause of elevated creatinine level.

How does PKD cause high creatinine level?

PKD is a gene-related kidney disorder that marked by yellow fluid collection which is clinically called cyst. However, how is the cyst associated with high creatinine level? Actually, enlarge cysts do not cause elevation of creatinine level, but it can impair kidney function, which will elevate creatinine level in blood. Creatinine is one of the wastes produced by our body and is normally kept in the range 0.5-1.3mg/dL through our kidneys. Therefore, when kidney function is affected by these enlarged cysts, creatinine level will increase.

How to reduce creatinine level in PKD?

For PKD patients, shrinking kidney cysts and then repair injured kidney intrinsic cells is the key point to reduce creatinine level. When kidney cysts are shrunk effectively, further kidney damages will be avoided, which helps to prevent the increasing of creatinine level. On the basis of this, if injured kidney cells can be repaired, much more cells will perform kidney function, as a result of which, kidney function gets improved. Kidneys are responsible for discharging excess creatinine, and with increased kidney function, creatinine level reduces.

In clinic, only Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy as of now has the function to shrink kidney cysts. Chinese herbs in this therapy have function to extend blood vessels and increase permeability of cystic wall. Extended blood vessels lower blood pressure and thus cause pressure difference between inside the cyst and outside the cyst, which will allow fluid inside the cysts ooze out. Besides, plus the increase permeability of cystic wall, cystic fluids ooze out more easily. In this way, kidney cysts in PKD can be shrunk effectively. Also, effective ingredients in Chinese herbs can stimulate injured kidney cells and activate them to work again. Dead kidney intrinsic cells can not be revived, so PKD can not be treatmentd. However, as long as these injured kidney cells begin to work again, kidney function gets improved. And also creatinine level gets reduced effectively.

How to reduce creatinine level is a common question posted by kidney disease patients, including PKD patients and it seems it is very hard for them to achieve this purpose. However, actually as long as patients found out the root cause of high creatinine level and take corresponding medical measures, creatinine level will be reduced effectively.
