    Should I Start Dialysis with Creatinine Level 5.6 with Hyprtension Nephropathy

    2015-05-22 09:21| Font Size A A A

    Should I Start Dialysis with Creatinine Level 5.6 with Hyprtension NephropathyHigh creatinine level is a common symptom for patients with Hypertension Nephropathy. And creatinine level 5.6 is extremely high than the normal range which ranges from 0.5-1.2mg/dl. There is a concerned question for patients: should we start dialysis with the condition?

    What can creatinine 5.6 tell us?

    Because our kidneys have very strong compensatory ability, the creatinine level will not increase until the kidney function is declined to 50% at least. Creatinine level 5.6 means the condition is already in stage 4 chronic kidney disease, the second advanced stage of kidney disease. This stage usually requires dialysis or kidney transplant in the near future.

    Well then, should I start dialysis?

    As the matter of fact, dialysis is regarded as an artificial kidney, which functions to help kidney discharge the extra waste products, such as creatinine. But the great disadvantage of dialysis is that it will bring a series of side effects and it has no function of improving kidney function. Therefore, we do not suggest dialysis to patients.

    Then, is there any other treatments aside from dialysis?

    Yes. For hypertensive kidney disease patients, kidney damage is mainly caused by long-term high blood pressure. Some Chinese medicine treatments are effective to deal with the condition, like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. It is a natural, safe and comfortable therapy. The active substances can reach into kidney lesions directly due to the external effects. It can achieve the function of expending blood vessels, promoting blood circulation, which provides a health environment to help the damaged cells get repaired. Eventually, high creatinine level will also be reduced naturally.
