“Sir, I am IgA Nephropathy patient, my creatinine level 6.1 and hemoglobin is 8.8, what should I do?” we get the question on our website. In order to help more patients, the kidney experts from Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital of China give the answer. Sincerely hope you get benefits from the passage.
IgA Nephropathy is the most common form of glomerulonephritis that occurs when an antibody called immunoglobulin A lodges in glomeruli. It damages the tiny filtering units of the kidney. It is a common sense that one of the kidney’s most important jobs is to filter toxic wastes products from the blood and glomeruli play a key role in the process. However, for patients with IgA nephropathy. As more glomeruli are damaged by the IgA protein, the kidney progressively loses its ability to clear wastes from the body. In the condition, symptoms will occur.
What do creatinine 6.1 and hemoglobin 8.8 mean?
Creatinine is as high as 6.1, which implies your kidneys are severely damaged. The damaged kidneys can not secrete enough hemoglobin, so your hemoglobin level decreases. Low hemoglobin level can make you fatigue, shortness of breath, pale skin and so on. Therefore, you should pay more attention and take immediate treatments. To know more details, please do feel free to contact our Online Doctors or email to email@example.com and we will do our best to help you.
What should you do with the condition?
Balanced and healthy diet plan is one of important parts for protecting kidney from the damage. In order to reduce kidneys’ burden, patients should have a low-protein and low-salt intake. And patients should limit intake of meat, so as to reduce metabolic product of creatinine. Foods rich in iron or even iron supplement is needed to stimulate the body to make more red blood cells. This can increase the hemoglobin level to some extent.
The treatment comes from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which combines western medical equipment. Through the dilating blood vessels, promoting blood circulation, anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation, degradation of extracellular matrix, kidney damage can be repaired from the root.
