How to Control Creatinine Level in Blood for PKD

How to Control Creatinine Level in Blood for PKDTested out high serum creatinine level is a frightening thing for people with Polycystic Kidney Disease. If you are also faced with this problem, read on to find out how to control creatinine level in blood for PKD.

Generally speaking, high creatinine level means kidneys are not working very well if patients follow a low-protein diet and don’t have strenuous exercise. In the early stage, most of PKD patients don’t suffer from high creatinine level, but more and more excessive creatinine may deposit in the blood as enlarged kidney cysts attack kidneys. Here, three treatments are recommended to lower elevated creatinine level.

Drug therapy: If the person’s creatinine level is slightly higher than the normal, doctors usually prescribe some medications such as ketosteril and coated aldehyde oxystarch. These medications are able to reduce the formation of nitrogenous waste, thus lowering high creatinine level. However, patients should use correct type and dose of medication, otherwise it may cause severe side effects.

Kidney replacement therapy: Dialysis is used commonly to replace kidneys’ job. With the principle of semipermeable membrane, dialysis can help remove small molecular substances including creatinine, uric acid, BUN, urea and excessive water from the body. This is why many people find their creatinine or BUN level comes down after dialysis treatment but goes up between two dialysis treatments. In addition, dialysis just can eliminate waste products but not all. This is why the longer patients undergo dialysis, the weaker their body.

The therapy of blood stasis: Combing the essence of all types of blood purifications and herbal medicines, this therapy can not only cleanse patients’ blood thoroughly but also add missing ingredients to their blood. With a normal blood circulation, excessive creatinine can’t deposit in the blood any more, so high creatinine level declines spontaneously.

Different from other types of kidney diseases, shrinking kidney cysts is the key to control PKD patients’ condition. Therefore, if you want to control creatinine level in blood more effectively, accepting correct treatment to decrease kidney cyst size is also very necessary.
