Should You Start Dialysis with Creatinine 5.5Many patients are curious about when to start dialysis with kidney disease. Should you start dialysis with creatinine 5.5? If your creatinine level is as high as 5.5, you may have to take dialysis into consideration.

Dialysis is a life-sustaining therapy for kidney patients.

Creatinine level 5.5 is far beyond the normal range (0.5-1.2 mg/dL), which means your kidneys are damaged severely. It also means toxin concentration in the blood is very high, which can cause many symptoms, such as headache, vomit, nausea, etc. If you feel very uncomfortable, you should start dialysis to cleanse the polluted blood. But dialysis can not repair the damaged kidneys, so as long as you start dialysis, you have to live on dialysis in the remaining years. If you do not have discomforts with creatinine 5.5, you can try some treatment to promote your kidney function so as to avoid dialysis.

You can get rid of dialysis with creatinine 5.5.

TCM treatment has thousands of years of history. In TCM, there are many kinds of therapies, such as 4M treatment (Mai Kang Mixture, Medicated Foot Bath, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and various Medicinal Soup) and 7 external therapies (Medicated Full Bath, Steam Therapy, Circle Therapy, Enema Therapy, Acupoint Application, Acupuncture and Moxibustion). Some of them can help you draw out toxins from the skin. Some can help your body discharge waste products from intestinal tract. Some can speed up blood circulation and dilate blood vessels to remove stasis and improve blood microcirculation in the kidneys. Some can decompose the immune complexes in the kidneys to eliminate kidney inflammation and some can degrade extracellular matrix to stop kidney fibrosis. After a period of treatment, your creatinine level will decline and your kidney function will be improved to certain extent.
