What Is The Kidney Treatment For High Creatinine

2014-03-19 16:21

What Is The Kidney Treatment For High CreatinineKidney disease patients may often hear their doctors or nurses are talking about their creatinine level. From this aspect, we can assume creatinine is an important factor for assessing kidney function. And when the creatinine level is high enough, dialysis is always offered by the doctor. However, is dialysis the treatment for high creatinine? Is there any other therapy to keep high creatinine level lowered?

1. What does high creatinine mean?

Creatinine is a by-product generated by our physical muscle metabolism. Normally it is discharged by our kidneys out of the body. And it is kept in a normal range and that is 0.5-1.2ml/dl for female and 0.6-1.3ml/dl for male. However, if kidney is damaged, this ability will be affected and wastes cannot be removed from the body properly, thus leading to creatinine piling up in the body. In this case, high creatinine will occur in kidney disease patients. Because our kidneys have strong compensatory ability, high creatinine level will not occur until more than half of kidney function has been impaired. Thus, once high creatinine level occurs, it indicates your kidney function has been severely damaged. If you don’t take methods to lower your high creatinine, it may cause further kidney damage and speed up its progression into kidney failure. In this light, having high creatinine under control is imperative for kidney disease patients.

2. What is the therapy for lowering high creatinine level?

1. Dialysis

Dialysis is one way to purify blood and discharge wastes including creatinine and blood urea nitrogen. In this way, high creatinine can be lowered to some extent. However, dialysis often brings obvious side effects like low blood pressure, infection, vomiting and nausea as well as hypertension, so many patients don’t want to accept dialysis and want to find a natural way to reduce high creatinine level.

2. Chinese herbal tea

Some Chinese herbal tea can increase urine output so as to filter creatinine out of the body, lowering high creatinine level. These herbs can be found in dandelion root, nettle, cinnamon, siberian ginseng and salvia.

3. Micro-Chinese medicine osmotherapy

Based on traditional Chinese medicine, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy aims to stop further kidney damage and rebuild kidney function. The active ingredients in Chinese medicine are micronized and then applied to the patients’ back, which helps damaged kidney absorb these efficacy directly through your skin. In this way, further kidney damage can be stopped effectively. What’s more, the ingredients can alleviate renal ischemia and hypoxia and degrade extracellular matrix. Through these treatments, kidney function can be improved step by step. When kidney function is elevated, creatinine will also be excreted out of the body effectively.
