An elevated creatinine level can mean that your kidney are working less effectively to eliminate waste products from your body. For creatinine level 18, it is much higher than the normal level which ranges from 0.5-1.3mg/dl. Facing so high creatinine level, what can be done?
Dialysis, as the artificial kidney, can help the damaged kidney discharge extra wastes and toxins from the blood. It may be recommended to you due to its function of blood purification. Creatinine is the product of creatine phosphate which is present in muscles and should be discharged out of the body by the healthy kidneys. However, for the damaged kidneys, they may depend on dialysis to filter extra waste.
The treatment aims at treating kidney disease from the root. The root cause of high creatinine level 18 is the severe kidney damage and decreased GFR. Therefore, to lower creatinine level form the root, what we should do is to repair kidney damage and improve kidney function. In this therapy, traditional Chinese medicines that are prescribed will be grinded up to the state of fine power, and by using advanced osmosis technology, which can transport the effective ingredients into kidney directly, so it will also have more effective effect comparing with oral method. The major benefits of this therapy are expanding blood vessel, anti-inflammation, anticoagulation, degrading extracellular matrix. Through these functions, kidney damage can not only be repaired from the root, high creatinine level and other symptoms also can be relieved fundamentally.
