Can You Only Wait for Dialysis with High Creatinine Level
With high creatinine level, can you only wait for dialysis? Do not be silly, you have at least 3 ways to lower high creatinine level.

Creatinine is the byproduct of muscle contraction. Because our muscle mass is constant, and basically passed out of body through the kidneys, so creatinine is also called the gold standard for testing kidney function.

Creatinine value is different from proteinuria, occult blood and uric acid. Only a little higher should not be ignored.

Generally speaking, there are two causes of elevated creatinine level.

1. Because of eating too much meat or exercise too much, a lot of creatinine is produced so that glomeruli can not filter the excessive creatinine timely. As a result, some creatinine returns to the blood again, leading to elevation of creatinine. If so, it does not matter.

2. Kidney damage and impaired renal function. The glomeruli are not able to filter all of the creatinine, causing the elevation of creatinine. For kidney patients, their high creatinine level usually results from the second one. Mild kidney damage won’t cause high creatinine level. Only when kidney damage is over 50% can creatinine level elevate. Therefore, high creatinine level often indicates declined kidney function.

When creatinine level is over 707 umol/L, you should start dialysis to maintain life.

However, if your creatinine is just beyond the normal range and not go beyond 707, what to do? Only wait for it to go up to 707 and then start dialysis?

Do not be silly. There are at least 3 ways to help you.

1. Medicine

Such as medicinal charcoal, uremic clearance granule, etc. They help lower creatinine level to certain extent.

2. Dialysis

Here it is not hemodialysis nor peritoneal dialysis, but colon dialysis, also known as Enema Therapy. It takes advantage of colon to discharge toxins from body so as to achieve the goal of lowering creatinine level. Its effect is better than medicine.

3. Chinese medicine

In Chinese medicine, creatinine belongs to toxin. It is to promote qi to activate blood, and promote detoxification ability of human body, mainly via sweating and urination. Its effect depends not only on the patient’s illness condition and physical condition, but also on the good Chinese medicine.

Therefore, if your creatinine level increase, but it is not as high as the dialysis value, you can try the above 3 ways to lower it, and cooperate with proper diet and living habit. Do not only wait for dialysis. For more information on high creatinine treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
