After Creatinine Level Rises, Doing These 3 Things Well Can Delay the Arrival of UremiaTwo major indicators that both doctors and kidney patients concern the most are proteinuria and serum creatinine. The reasons for the attention are simple, because to some extent these two indicators represent the extent of kidney damage.

But once creatinine levels start to increase, the focus shifts to creatinine level, because it is close to uremia. When creatinine level is over 707, dialysis should be started.

So when creatinine rises, what can kidney disease patient do to delay the arrival of uremia?

1. Do not reduce creatinine level

Many people treat creatinine in the same way with proteinuria, and think that once it is normal, it means illness condition gets stable. Negative proteinuria means stable illness condition, but creatinine is different. As long as it is chronic kidney disease that causes elevated creatinine level, it can not come down.

Therefore, the first thin you need to do is to change your mind about treatment, and do not deal with creatinine level with the way to treat proteinuria.

First of all, you need to be clear that creatinine is excreted only through the kidney. Once it is elevated, it means that the renal function is impaired. And this indicator is usually dull. Only when kidney damage is over 50% can it increase. And so far there is no treatment for the dead kidney cells. Therefore, the focus in this stage is to maintain the residual renal cells and protect the remaining renal function.

When kidney disease progresses to a new stage, it is important to change the mind on treatment.

2. Reselect medicine

In the early stage of kidney disease, you may avoid nephrotoxic drugs, such as antibiotics, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and Chinese herbs containing aristolochic acid, etc.

But when the creatinine increases, that is, renal insufficiency, in addition to the drugs that damage kidneys cannot be used, drugs are are excreted by kidneys should be avoided as well, because even though they do not do harm to kidneys, they can put extra stress on kidneys. And for kidneys in renal insufficiency stage, it is a big pressure, which may accelerate the decline of renal function.

Therefore, medication should be more careful at this time, and choose drugs that are less excreted by kidneys. For example, some Chinese patent medicines that can tonify qi and activate blood, such as jinshuibao and bailing, can continue to be used.

3. Prevent complications and control a range of risk factors that can cause complications.

-Control blood pressure. To choose antihypertensive drugs according to your glomerular filtration rate. If necessary, several medicines can be used together. And it is a must to stabilize blood pressure. If not, it can trigger a series of cardiovascular disease and increase the risk of complications.

Besides, keep blood sugar level and blood lipid level stable.

-Adjust diet to ensure that nutrient intake is sufficient, while not putting extra stress on kidneys.

To restrict protein intake into 3-4 g per day. To control protein intake into 0.6-0.8 g/kg per day. To supplement calcium moderately by drinking milk. And to take enough vitamins by eating more fresh vegetables and fruits. But avoid foods high in potassium and phosphorus.
