When to Start Dialysis with High Creatinine Level

2013-02-26 08:57

When to Start Dialysis with High Creatinine Level  Generally, creatinine level won’t rise above the normal value (0.5~1.1mg/dL, 0.6~1.2mg/dL) until more than 50% of kidney function has been lost. Once the person’s blood test shows his creatinine level is higher than the normal, when to start dialysis with high creatinine level must be his big concern. Today, we are here to give an answer in detail.

When to start dialysis with high creatinine level?

High creatinine level is an alarm of heavy kidney function loss. Clinical researches reveal that patient may have to start dialysis when his creatinine level is higher than 5mg/dL, but this value changes for different patients. The reason is that high creatinine level can’t be the only factor that determines the accurate time to undergo dialysis. If patients don’t have any other symptoms except high creatinine level, they needn’t start dialysis even though their creatinine level is far higher than the normal. Otherwise, patients have to accept dialysis if some severe complications appear but the creatinine level is lower than 5mg/dL. Therefore, we can know when to start dialysis with high creatinine level depends on patients’ specific condition. Fortunately, some treatments are able to help these patients to avoid or at least delay dialysis effectively.

What are effective treatments that the above mentioned?

The healthy kidney is able to remove wastes, excess water and toxins, but these substances will build up in the blood and lead to some complications when the kidney loses its ability to purify blood. Then, the complications urge patients to begin dialysis. In view of this, the best treatment is to prevent further kidney damage and try to recover part of kidney function. With essence of traditional Chinese medicine and advanced western medicine, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is favored by many patients, because it can make part of kidney function work again, through expanding blood vessels, improving blood circulation and increasing the blood flow in the kidney. When part of kidney function recovers and stays stable, patient with kidney disease can avoid dialysis.
