How to Deal with ESRD And Serum High Creatinine

2012-12-31 16:42

High creatinine is very common in ESRD stage, that is because the kidneys have been damaged severely and little kidney function has been left in ESRD stage. Then how to deal with ESRD and serum high creatinine?

The terms end-stage renal failure and end-stage renal disease are used interchangeably, and the abbreviation ESRD is commonly used. Typically, patients will have kidney function in the area of 10-15% or so. In China, ESRD is also known as Uremia, and the serum creatinine level has exceeded 707umol/L. ESRD stage also means stage 5 CKD, the most severe stage of kidney disease. Do you know How Much Is The Life Expectancy of Stage 5 Kidney Disease?

Apart from the serum high creatinine, anemia, headache, fatigue, muscle cramps, diarrhea, high blood pressure, decreased urine output, poor digestion and symptoms may occur at ESRD stage. As to the treatment for ESRD, dialysis and kidney transplant are two common ways with which patients are familiar. Generally speaking, when the condition develops ESRD stage, patients place the hope on kidney transplant. While before receiving such an operation, patients with ESRD will take dialysis treatment to maintain lives and treat high creatinine and other symptoms.

Kidney transplant is really an efficient treatment for ESRD patients, there are so many patients on the list, waiting for a donor taken years. If they are lucky to receive a kidney transplant, they have great possibility to live for a longer life. However, like FSGS cases have a high reoccurrence rate. In China, experts on kidney disease don’t think kidney transplant is the last choice for ESRD patients, unless the kidneys have been scrapped totally. The Chinese herbal medicines have been proved in the clinical that they have an effect on repairing kidney damage and enhancing kidney function, in that case, the kidney transplant may be avoided and dialysis may be gotten rid of. For ESRD patients, urine stands for hopes, and if they have no urine for less than six months, there still has the possibility. Of course, more kidney function is left, more obvious the treatment effect of Chinese herbal medicines will be. You can not imagine how happy these ESRD patients without urine output are when they see they can pass urine again.
