Creatinine Level 4 in Hypertensive Nephropathy: What to Do

2015-05-18 12:38| Font Size A A A

Creatinine Level 4 in Hypertensive Nephropathy: What to DoCreatinine is usually taken as a indicator to reflect renal function. A high creatinine level will also be a trouble for patients with Hypertensive Nephropathy. Then, when creatinine level increases to 4, what to do?

In the normal condition, creatinine should be discharged out of  the  body by the healthy kidneys. However, when kidney are damaged by high blood pressure, kidney will lose some functions more or less. Once the kidney cannot properly function, creatinine will build up in the blood, resulting in high creatinine level. The normal creatinine level ranges from 0.5-1.1mg/dl for females and 0.6-1.2mg/dl for males. We can see that creatinine level 4 is much higher than the normal range. Due to our kidneys’ trong compensatory ability, creatinine level won’t increase until 50% of renal function has been lost. Want’s more, stage 4 kidney disease may suggest illness condition has entered into Stage 4 CKD, which is marked by the severe kidney damage.

Facing so high creatinine level, what to do?

1. Dialysis

Dialysis is a good choice to take away the creatinine in blood. However, as dialysis cannot work in patients as the healthy kidneys, it can only remove a part of creatinine. And when it stops, the creatinine builds up again. This is why many patients will experience the relapse of high creatinine level after dialysis.

2. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy

Some herbs in the therapy have the function of dilation of blood vessels. This can improve the blood circulation and prevent the high blood pressure from damaging kidneys. Some herbs have the function of anti-inflammation. This can stop the kidney fibrosis and protect renal inherent cells. Some herbs have the function of anti-coagulation. This reduce the formation of thrombus. Some herbs have the function of degrading extracellular matrix. This is helpful for repairing the damaged kidney. As long as Hypertensive Nephropathy is under controlled, high creatinine level will decrease naturally.

In addition, as the assistant therapy, a balanced eating plan and healthy lifestyles are important to strengthen therapeutic effects. To know more useful tips, please be feel free to contact our Online Doctor or email to renal-disease@hotmail.com and we will do our best to help you.
