    At What Level of Creatinine Is Dialysis Required

    2014-03-03 13:32| Font Size A A A

    Creatinine is one of the important measuring standards of kidney function. Usually, if your creatinine level increases to a high level, certain damage of kidney function will be bound to happen. If untreated, dialysis will be recommended by your physician to keep you alive. Then at what level of creatinine is dialysis required?

    In clinical, creatinine is the metabolic wastes of the muscles and filtered through kidneys. Normally, creatinine level will not rises unless more than half of the kidney function disappear. The time when you start dialysis may be various. Most of them are recommended to start dialysis if creatinine level is above 5.0mg/min. For creatinine 5.0 can be an indication of severe condition in which your kidneys may fail to perform their normal function to filter blood and remove wastes from body.

    Dialysis is a very effective way to lower high creatinine level and ease clinical symptoms. However, it cannot restrain the progression of kidney damage. Frequent dialysis sometimes can even aggravate kidney damage and cause more complications. Therefore, it is not a long-term option.

    On the contrary, Chinese herbal medicine is more proper than dialysis. It can not only ease clinical symptoms but also impair damaged kidney function. At present, many herbal therapies are widely used in clinical to treat kidney disease such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Blood Pollution Therapy, Medicated Bath, Enema Therapy and so on. Patients can choose the most proper one according to their own condition.

    In conclusion, dialysis is not the only way to lower high creatinine level. If your creatinine level goes up to a high level, you should go to the hospital to find the underlying causes and treat it through effective methods. Have any question?
