High creatinine level can be a “red flag” for kidney disease which often indicate there is severe kidney damage. Along with the symptom, patients are more likely to suffer from poor appetite, nausea, vomiting and so on. Well then, is it possible to reduce creatinine levels by acupuncture treatment?
Creatinine is a waste product in the blood crated by the normal metabolism of muscle cells. Healthy kidneys take creatinine out of the blood and remove it into the urine to leave the body. When the kidneys are not working well, creatinine builds up in the blood. In other words, if the kidneys lose the ability to filter blood, more creatinine will accumulate and serum creatinine will raise. So creatinine is an indirect marker of GFR or how well the kidneys work. Generally speaking, a normal result of creatinine is 0.5-1.1mg/dl for female and 0.6-1.3mg/dl for male. What’s more, due to kidneys’ strong compensatory ability, a half of renal function has been damaged.
Well then, is it possible to reduce creatinine level by acupuncture treatment?
