What should Kidney Failure Patient Do with Creatinine 5.2

2015-11-24 14:19

What should Kidney Failure Patient Do with Creatinine 5.2I am a kidney failure patient and my creatinine level has up to 5.2 now. In addition, my urea level also is very high. Can you tell me what should i do ?

Why creatinine and urea level go high ?

According to your description, your creatinine level is much higher than the normal. Creatinine is generated from muscle catabolism and the meat you consume. And urea is generated from dietary protein and tissue protein. Under normal circumstance, they can be discharged from body by kidneys. Once kidneys go wrong, they will build up in the blood and cause further damage to kidneys, thus the creatinine and urea level will go high.

With high creatinine level and urea level what should patient do ?

As the toxin, it should be removed through the kidneys. Once it increases, there is just 30%-50% kidney function left. so it is time for you to take the proper treatment, once the creatinine level increases, you will have to face the dialysis soon.

Dialysis is the quickest way to clear part of the toxin out of body. Dialysis can take over part of native kidney function. It does clear away creatinine level temporarily, but it can’t treat kidney disease and recover the damaged glomerulus. Since your kidney function is damaged, these toxin can't be expelled out of your body, so they will build up in your body. But dialysis is only able to discharge the micromolecule toxin, it can’t clear away the middle molecule toxin and the macromolecule toxin. With so much toxins in body, it’s easy to catch heart failure. Dialysis also causes many side effects, such as fatigue, muscle cramps, itchy skin and infection. What’s more, dialysis impacts heart, which will put patient’s life into risk.
