Creatinine 8.8 and CKD Stage 5: Is It Curable

2014-11-03 08:01

Creatinine 8.8 and CKD Stage 5: Is It Curable“My creatinine level is 8.8 and I am in CKD stage 5. Dialysis has not been started yet. I just want to know is it curable or not?” I am very sorry to tell you that when CKD develops to stage 5, there is no cure for it. What we should do is to control your medical condition and ensure your life quality.

Dialysis is a quick way to lower creatinine

Creatinine 8.8 is much higher than the normal level. Without timely treatment, it will cause further damage to the kidneys. Under normal circumstance, dialysis is recommended when your creatinine level is as high as 6-7. Though dialysis lowers creatinine level quickly, it can not treat the kidney disease and you have to live on dialysis in the remaining years to filter waste. As long as you stop dialysis, creatinine level goes up again.

Kidney transplant is a better way.

Relative speaking, kidney transplant is better than dialysis. It is to put a healthy kidney into the body to take the place of the damaged one to work. And then your creatinine level can be normalized. But the transplanted kidneys have life expectancy. Several years later, you have to find another kidney to do transplant again. In addition, the anti-rejection drugs can inhibit your immune system and expose you to various diseases, such as cancer.

The fundamental way is to repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function.

In CKD Stage 5, most of the kidney tissues have been damaged. But some kidney tissues can be revitalized and regain their ability. The main problem in this stage is the accumulated waste. If you do not want to do dialysis, there are some TCM therapies to help you detoxify the blood, such as Foot Bath, Full Bath, Enema Therapy, Steam Therapy and Circle Therapy. They can make use of different part of body to expel toxins. They can also speed up blood circulation to remove stasis and dilate blood vessels to increase blood flow into the kidneys so as to aid in kidney recovery. Stem cell therapy may also be used if you want to improve kidney function to maximum.

Timely and effective treatment is needed for you to lower creatinine 8.8 if you do not want to do dialysis. With the help of online doctor, you can learn more information.
