PKD & Kidney Cysts

Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is a group of disorders that result from the formation and progressive enlargement of cysts in the kidneys without dysplasia, usually leading to renal failure.

Is Dialysis Necessary For Creatinine 4.9 With PKD

2013-04-17 16:48

PKD can alter normal renal structure and affect normal renal functions. As a result, metabolic wastes and toxins can not be discharged efficiently. Excessive accumulation of muscle metabolism can cause high creatinine level in the blood. Since creatinine will be produced at a constant rate, creatinine will continue to become even higher without proper treatments. When creatinine reaches a certain level, dialysis will be needed to help replace the functions of the impaired kidneys to remove these abnormal creatinine and other harmful substances from the body.

Creatinine 4.9 is quite high, but dialysis is not a must for this creatinine level. However, if GFR has been below 5 and creatinine continues to become higher, dialysis will soon be necessary. Creatinine 4.9 is actually a crucial level for PKD patients. If it can be controlled and lowered, dialysis can be avoided or at least delayed. Otherwise, illness conditions will continue to deteriorate, creatinine will shoot to even higher levels and dialysis will be needed or the patient’s life might be threatened.

The key point is how to naturally reduce high creatinine as 4.9 without dialysis. Many natural herbs can help cleanse the kidneys and improve urine flow so as to help flush more creatinine from the body. Besides, limiting the consumption of proteins and meats, drink more water and avoid dehydration, avoid strenuous activities can all help naturally control high creatinine levels.

Another important aspect for PKD patients is to treat renal cysts in their kidneys. These cysts are the root cause of loss of kidney functions and high creatinine levels. If the root problem is solved, there can be great improvements of the patient’s illness conditions. Chinese medicines can help shrink renal cysts step by step so as to protect residual renal tissues and renal functions. Active ingredients in Chinese medicines can help repair the already damaged renal tissues so as to recover renal structure and renal functions. When the glomerular filtration membrane is repaired and renal functions are improved, high creatinine will be lowered from the root. Other symptoms of PKD like back pain, high blood pressure, infections will all be treated.
