Can Dialysis Lower High Creatinine Level for People with PKD

Can Dialysis Lower High Creatinine Level for People with PKD  Generally, serum creatinine won’t be higher than the normal unless more than 50% of kidney function has lost. If kidneys can’t do their job normally, patients have to live with dialysis. Can dialysis lower high creatinine level for people with PKD?

Normally, our kidney is responsible to filter our blood and remove wastes including creatinine from our body. However, once a large part of kidney function loses, many wastes will build up in the body. As a result, serum creatinine level rises higher than the normal (0.5-1.1mg/dl for female, 0.6-1.2mg/dl for male). Most often, patients begin dialysis when their creatinine level is above 5.0mg/dl, but this value changes for different patients.

Can dialysis lower high creatinine level for people with PKD? The fortunate answer is yes. Dialysis indeed has a remarkable and quick benefit of reducing elevated creatinine level, because it can replace part of kidney filtering function to remove micromolecule substances from the body. Therefore, patients on dialysis find their creatinine level is lower than the level before dialysis. However, dialysis can only replace part of kidney filtering function not secreting function, so patients’ creatinine level raises again only with the help of dialysis.

Is there a treatment help prevent the relapse of high creatinine level? The best treatment is to improve kidney function. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy just can help achieve this goal. This therapy, compared with dialysis, is able to expand blood vessels, transport enough nutrition to damaged cells, enhance self-curative ability and regulate patients’ immune system. As a result, patients’ kidney function is improved largely. Once their kidney function increases into 15% and maintains stable, they can get rid of dialysis or at least reduce the times of dialysis.
