Can Elevated Creatinine Be Reduced without Dialysis

2013-04-21 14:17

Elevated creatinine implies reduced renal function.It occurs as kidneys fail to eliminates wastes from body adequately.Can elevated creatinine be reduced without dialysis?

Dialysis is a major replacement therapy for Kidney Failure.When blood with wastes flows through dialysis machine,the wastes will be filtered out. Then the filtered blood will return to body. It plays an important role in extending the life span of people on dialysis.

However,dialysis can only take over only a part of renal function. Between the treatments,the creatinine will increase gradually untile next dialysis treatment is performed.Furthermore,as the length of dialysis time prolongs,the dialysis frequency will have to be increased gradually.This is because dialysis can not eliminate the causes of elevated creatinine. So it can not control the disorder fundamentally.

What are the alternative treatment to dialysis for elevated creatinine?

Dialysis can only remove wastes from blood,but can not recover the excretory ability of the kidneys.So the creatinine still keeps high between two Dialysis treatments.

Elevated creatinine is the result of kidney damage and reduced renal function.Therefore,lowering creatinine should not the optimal treatment goal.To lower creatinine level, the first treatment goal is to restore the impaired kidney structure and enhance renal function.

Blood purification treatment and Chinese herbal medicine are recommended to the patients.

Blood purification treatment can clear up different types of harmful substances like immune complexes, inflammatory factors, urea,creatinine etc from blood. Thus, it can create a clean environment for repairing the impaired kidney structure.

Chinese herbal medicines are tonic to kidney tissues and also can stimulate the body to regain the self-healing ability.Thus,it can stimulate the self-regeneration of the impaired kidney tissues,resulting in an improvement of renal function. Is so, elevated creatinine will be reduced without dialysis.
