Do Not Only Focus on Creatinine Level with Kidney Failure

Do Not Only Focus on Creatinine Level with Kidney FailureAccording to years of clinical experience, the fundamental purpose of treating kidney failure is not to reduce creatinine, but to protect renal function, retain remaining kidney units, regulate immunity, repair damaged kidney tissue and improve renal microcirculation.

Clinically, creatinine is often considered to be a core indicator of renal failure progression. After renal function damage, a large amount of toxins will accumulate in the body and then creatinine level increases. But creatinine level is only a number. It is useless to focus on it, so why not pay more attention to protecting renal function and repairing damaged kidneys. When kidney function gets restored, creatinine level reduces naturally.

Then what to do?

The main manifestation of serious renal function impairment is that the glomeruli are seriously damaged, and the body's metabolism, electrolyte balance and acid-base balance are seriously disturbed to different degrees.

Therefore, to eliminate pathogenic factors that impair renal function as early as possible is the key to preventing sustained deterioration of renal function.

First of all, to reduce blood pressure and lower proteinuria.

In the department of nephrology, the combined hypertension method is mostly used to deal with hypertension, and ACEI and ARBs are mostly used, and the combination of antihypertensive drugs, hormones or immunosuppressive drugs is used to treat proteinuria.

Do not ignore the prevention and treatment of complications.

Chronic kidney disease has many complications, such as cardiovascular disease, anemia, metabolic acidosis, calcium and phosphorus disorder, hyperkalemia, etc. Clinically, you need to take corresponding drugs to prevent and treat these complications, and food therapy is also critical.

To keep away from recurrent factors

Kidney patients usually have a poor immunity, so infections such as colds and fever appears easily.

Once the bacteria and viruses enter the body, the body's immune system will produce immune complexes to fight against external viruses and bacteria, and these immune complexes will eventually enter the renal microcirculation system, increasing the possibility of renal disease relapse. Frequent relapse can worsen kidney function, and speed up kidney failure until uremia.

Exercise, regular work and rest, to pay attention to hygiene, to stay away from the source of viruses and bacteria, are the best choice!
