How Does High Creatinine Affect You2016-10-16 07:15
Creatinine is a chemical waste product of creatine. It is usually removed out through the kidneys and excreted in the urine. High levels of creatinine is a sign of kidney damage and the inability of the kidneys to filter out creatinine. Well then, what will happen to your body with high creatinine level?
Normal blood creatinine is 0.6 to 1.2mg/dL. Once your creatinine level in blood is higher than normal range, it indicates at least half of kidney function has been damaged.
How does high creatinine level affect you?
As creatinine level increases, it means kidney function diminishes which will also have trouble with the rest of its vital functions. Besides, BUN level will also rise and everything will be in trouble. The effects would then involve the entire body system which finally becomes fatal and lead to death in case the kidney function is in failure.
Common symptoms of high creatinine level include nausea, vomiting, poor appetite, itchy skin and diarrhea. Patients will have a low life quality. In serious condition, dialysis will be recommended. Dialysis can be a quick way to discharge excess creatinine out so as to relieve symptoms effectively. However, dialysis is not a radical way for high creatinine level. That is, your creatinine level will increase again after dialysis treatment. Besides, dialysis can also cause lots of side effects like low blood pressure, infection, muscle cramps and weight gain. This will make your life quality even lower.
Is there any alternative to dialysis?
Aside from dialysis, you can also take Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy to reduce your high creatinine level. This therapy aims to repair injured kidney tissues and improve renal function. In this way, high creatinine level will be reduced from the root. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is only available in China so foreign patients need to come to China for treatment. It is natural and effective so you have no need to worry about its side effects. More and more patients have come to China for treatment.
