2012-12-13 08:52

Is creatinine 4.7 stage 5 Kidney Failure? Here we will help kidney diseases patients know more about creatinine 4.7 and stage 5 Kidney Failure.

Firstly, we will tell you that creatinine 4.7 is not stage 5 Kidney Failure. Apparently, creatinine 4.7 exceeds the normal level, and it can tell us that kidneys have been damaged severely and more than 50% of kidney function has been lost. As long as high creatinine caused by kidney damage appears, more than a half of kidney function has been lost. According to the creatinine level, renal insufficiency is divided into four stages in China, and they are compensatory stage, decompensatory stage, renal failure and uremia. Creatinine 4.7 is equal to creatinine 415umol/L, and it is in the second stage-decompensatory stage. In international, kidney disease can be divided into five stages according to the level of GFR. Stage 5 Kidney Failure is the last stage of kidney disease, also the most severe stage. It means uremia in China. When the condition develops stage 5 Kidney Failure, the GFR level has been less than 15. Creatinine 4.7 has not developed stage 5 Kidney Failure, it means stage 3 CKD.

Creatinine 4.7 is not stage 5 Kidney Failure, but most important urgent stage. The real treatment is possible to reverse stage 1 and stage 2 CKD. Once the condition develops stage 3 CKD, this possibility is discounted, and it will be nearly impossible to reverse the disease when it develops into stage 4 CKD or stage 5 Kidney Failure. Generally speaking, when condition develops stage 5 Kidney Failure, in many countries, patients have to choose either dialysis or kidney transplant to maintain lives. In order to avoid this happening, patients with creatinine 4.7 should take the real treatment as early as possible, when the creatinine level increases to 451 umol/L, then Renal Failure occurs. In Chinese clinical, the application of Chinese herbal medicines has been proved they can repair the kidney damage and enhance kidney function. We would like to help you know more about the treatment used in China.
