PKD Clinic: Can I Repair Damaged Kidney

2013-08-06 15:02

Patients: My creatinine level was 2.01 and now it is 1.91 after 3 days’ medicine. Then, my doctor gives me some medicines and ask me to repeat kidney function test after a few weeks. Can I repair damaged kidney? Is creatinine 2.01 dangerous?

Can I Repair Damaged KidneyDoctor at PKD Clinic: From your description, we can’t determine whether your high creatinine level is associated with kidney damage. In clinical, besides kidney disease, dehydration, tiredness and refractory hypertension all can lead to elevated creatinine level. If your high creatinine level is due to kidney damage, read on to find the answer.

Our kidney is a great organ that can still work optimally, even though it isn’t functioning 100%. Therefore, creatinine commonly won’t raise until more than 50% of kidney functioning cells are impaired.

We know every cell in our body has certain self-curative ability. This is why small wound can be healed by itself. When half of kidney functioning cells can’t work normally, it means some kidney cells are damaged and some others are necrotic.

At present, what we can do is to repair the damaged but not necrotic cells. With the help of herbal medicines such as Chinese rhubarb and astragalus mongholicus, those damaged kidney cells’ self-curative ability can be increased largely.

Then, some other medicines are used for extending blood vessels, anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation and degrading extracellular matrix, so as to transport enough nutritions and oxygens for damaged kidney cells.

With high self-curative ability and enough nutritions, damaged cells can be repaired gradually. This means damaged kidney can be repaired to some extent but not all.

Please, don’t worry. As the above said, kidney is a great excretory organ that can work normally at functioning 50%. If you have high creatinine level or low kidney function, remember prompt treatment is the way to reverse them. (If you have any question, you can send email to my email box:
