Should People with Creatinine 5.0 Start DialysisMost kidney disease patients who is tested out creatinine 5.0 may think dialysis is coming in the near future. Some of them tell us that they are scared to death, because they don’t want to live with this cold machine for the rest of their life. Should people with creatinine 5.0 start dialysis? Is it possible for them to avoid or at least delay dialysis?

How about the answer?

Clinically, people may be recommended to start dialysis when their creatinine level is above 5.0. However, it shouldn’t be the only indicator to determine the exact time when kidney disease patients should begin dialysis. If you only have high creatinine level but no other complications, you don’t need to start dialysis so early, otherwise you had better start it earlier.

So many people turn their focus on the relation between high creatinine level and the start time of dialysis, but in fact kidney function level is more accurate than high creatinine level. According to the National Kidney Foundation, kidney disease patients have to begin dialysis when their kidney function is less than 15%.

Is it possible to delay dialysis?

From the above analysis, we can know complications including high creatinine level and low kidney function are two factors to determine when you should do dialysis, so the effective treatment to avoid dialysis should be the one that can not only control your complications but also repair the damaged kidney tissues. Here, we would like to introduce a breakthrough in this year: the therapy of blood stasis.

Compared with conventional treatment, this therapy can remove the waste products both in the blood vessels and sticking to the vascular walls. Therefore, firstly it has an obvious and quick effect of lowering high creatinine level and easing other symptoms. Secondly, maintaining a clean internal environment in the long time, hematopoiesis mechanism and coagulation mechanism will recover to normal gradually. Finally, the other big benefit of this therapy is to repair damaged kidney function. After a period of treatment, you can find your kidney function increased largely. Then, you can avoid or at least delay dialysis effectively.
