Adult PKD, High Blood Pressure, Creatinine 3, Urea 60 Patient: My husband is found to have adult PKD. His blood pressure is elevated and his doctor prescribed some antihypertensive drugs. Other symptoms include back pain, high creatinine is 3 and blood urea is 60. How to help him lower high creatinine and urea in the blood? Will he soon be put on dialysis?

Expert: Adult PKD is one common hereditary kidney disease due to gene mutation. In the patient’s kidneys, there are multiple renal cysts which will continue to grow larger and larger. They will oppress surrounding renal tissues and cause loss of kidney functions.

With continuous growth and increase of renal cysts and gradual loss of kidney functions, a series of health issues will occur such as high blood pressure, high serum creatinine levels and high blood urea, etc.

For adults, the normal creatinine range is 0.5-1.2; normal blood urea level is 10-20. For elderly people, their creatinine is lower and urea level is higher. Even though, urea level higher than 30 may indicates congestive heart condition, gastrointestinal disorder, urinary obstruction or kidney problems. For adult PKD patients, the root cause of high blood pressure, high creatinine and high blood urea is loss of kidney functions due to renal cysts in the kidneys.

Creatinine 3 and urea 60 mean that the renal filtration functions have been affected and the kidneys can not function well to efficiently remove metabolic wastes and toxins from the blood. For his current conditions, it is still early to begin dialysis. If left untreated, he will in the end need dialysis when illness progresses into the end stage. Renal cysts will continue to become even larger and more renal tissues and structures will be damaged and more renal functions will be lost.

If early and proper treatment is sought, high creatinine and urea can be lowered and high blood pressure can be controlled. Further deterioration can be prevented and dialysis can be avoided or at least delayed. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy has been proved in clinic to be effective at shrinking renal cysts, lowering high blood pressure, reducing high creatinine and urea levels. What is more important, active ingredients in Chinese medicines can help repair renal damages and improve kidney functions so that the curative effects can be lasting and durable.
