Is It A Horror to Have FSGS and Creatinine 4.6When diagnosed with FSGS, you may frequently hear your doctor talking about your creatinine level which is an indicator to reflect your renal function. Well then, is it a horror to have FSGS and creatinine 4.6?

What does creatinine level 4.6 mean?

Generally speaking, creatinine level won’t increase until about 50% of renal function has been damaged. Because our kidneys are endowed with strong compensatory ability. Creatinine level 4.6 is indeed extremely higher than the normal level which ranges from 0.5-1.2mg/dl, which means FSGS patients’ kidney damage has been damaged seriously.

Well then, how does FSGS patients have creatinine level 4.6?

FSGS, short for focal segmental glomerular sclerosis, refers that some part of glomeruli has been scarred. Glomeruli play the role of filtering blood and keeping nutrition in the body. Damaged glomeruli can not function properly, and as a consequence, wastes accumulate in the blood and nutrition like protein leak into urine. With the deterioration of illness, more and more glomeruli are injured too. Under such a condition, not only creatinine level becomes higher and higher, all the symptoms becomes more seriously as well. Creatinine is a waste that needs to be excreted through kidney. When kidney function is impaired severely due to FSGS, creatinine builds up in the blood and creatinine level becomes higher.

Is it a horror to have high creatinine level for FSGS patients?

To be frank, facing so high creatinine level, the doctor will suggest dialysis to you. As for creatinine level 4.6, it is a little early to take dialysis. In our Beijing Tongshantang Hospital, China, we do also use natural and comprehensive treatment to lower high creatinine level for patients, like Blood Pollution Therapy, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Four ‘One’ Therapy from Traditional Chinese Medicine and so on.
