Creatinine Level 5.4:Dialysis Should Be Started or Not

2013-06-23 17:04

When creatinine level 5.4 comes, should patients begin dialysis treatment or not? Well, without knowing much about patients’ condition, we will not and can not tell the answer. But one thing we can tell patients with creatinine level 5.4 is that dialysis can be avoided or stopped through a real treatment.

Creatinine level 5.4 can tell the condition has already developed in stage 4 Chronic Kidney Disease, the second most advanced stage of kidney disease. That when kidney disease patients should begin dialysis treatment has no a direct relation with a creatinine level. For people with creatinine level 5.4, if their Blood Urea Nitrogen≥54mmol/L or serum potassium≥7mmol/L or they are in some other certain situations, urgent dialysis treatment will be recommended.

Speaking of dialysis, though it can help lower creatinine level 5.4 and other high creatinine levels to a certain degree, the fact is that no one wants to experience it and it is unable to treat any kinds of kidney diseases. Dialysis can only partly replace the functions of kidneys, so it is easy for us to understand that long-term of taking dialysis can lead to the continue loss of kidney function, which can be proved by the decreased urine output.

If people with creatinine 5.4 want to avoid or get rid of dialysis, recovering kidney function is the only way. Nowadays, the application of Chinese herbal medicines begins to arouse more and more attention worldwide as it aims at repairing kidney damage and recovering kidney function.
