I Have PKD and My Creatine Is 6.0: What Happens NextPeople with Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) and creatinine 6.0 are urgent to receive immediate treatments otherwise there are many severe problems will happen next:

1. Enlarged kidneys:

Creatinine 6.0 means the kidneys have been severely damaged, failing to discharge excessive fluid in the body. Large amount of fluid build up around the kidneys, resulting in swollen kidneys.

Swelling can also occur in the liver, heart and lungs, which may cause life-threatening situations.

2. High blood pressure:

Enlarged kidney cysts are the common causes of high blood pressure. In addition, damaged kidneys may secrete more hormones that will raise the blood pressure. If hypertension cannot be controlled, it will also aggravate the illness condition.

3. Proteinuria and/hematuria

Protein and red blood cells leak out of the kidneys, thus making the urine present with foamy or bloody urine.

4. Reduced urine output

With creatinine 6.0, the patient have difficulty in producing normal urine output because of kidney damage. However, they will experience frequent and urgent urine, especially at night.

5. Digestive problems

When wastes and toxins accumulate in the gastrointestinal tract, they will stimulate the mucosa, causing severe nausea, vomiting or diarrhea.

6. Nerve damages

Both cystic enlargement and toxins will cause nerve damages. That’s why patients always feel pain in the back, flank, or abdomen, etc. Sometimes, headaches and leg pain, shoulder pain occur.

Treatments for PKD patients with creatinine 6.0

The doctors will recommend PKD patients with creatinine 6.0 to take dialysis. Dialysis can help them filter wastes and toxins in the blood. There are two types: hemodialysis (HD) and peritoneal dialysis (PD). Consult your doctor which type is right for you.
