2015-07-04 16:07| Font Size A A A

Should I Start Dialysis with Creatinine 4.4 in CKD Dialysis is the treatment which can help purify blood and prolong patients’ life for those who suffer from end stage renal disease (ESRD) or Kidney Failure patients. It is commonly used to lower high creatinine level. Some patients worry that whether they should start dialysis or not if creatinine level is 4.4?

Creatinine level is an index to reflect how well your kidneys are working now. In the normal condition, extra creatinine level in the body should be discharged out of the body by the healthy kidneys, while when kidneys are damaged by kidney disease, kidneys will fail to remove wastes and toxins from the body, triggering high creatinine level and other symptoms.

Well then, should I start dialysis with creatinine 4.4?

Generally speaking, dialysis is required when creatinine level increases to 5ml/min or 442umol/L, as creatinine 5 means the toxins and wastes in the blood has caused serious threatening to our internal organs. However, many patients do not start dialysis at all even they have a high creatinine level without severe complications.

According to the standard, we can see that a person with 4.4 may live his life without dialysis if he or she has no severe complications. But creatinine 4.4 still nears to 5 which should draw highly attention to your whole body health.

Well then, aside from dialysis, what treatment can help lower creatinine 4.4 naturally?

To be frank, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is effective and natural treatment to lower high creatinine level through repairing kidney damage and improving renal function.

It is an external application of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) which can be used for dilating blood vessels, promoting blood circulation, anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation, degradation of extracellular matrix and so on. After the functions, kidney cells’ self-handling ability can be strengthened. To know more details, please do feel free to contact our Online Doctor or email to and we will do our best to help you.
