When Should I Come on Dialysis with Creatinine 5 and Diabetes

2015-03-23 13:22

When Should I Come on Dialysis with Creatinine 5 and DiabetesWith the changes of eating habits and the extension of lifespan, more and more people get diabetes. Long-term diabetes causes many complications, one of which is kidney failure. As long as your kidney function is no more than 50%, your creatinine level rises. “Now my creatinine level is 5 and I am a diabetic from past 18 years. When should I come on dialysis?”. Recently a Diabetic Nephropathy patient sought help from our website. Now let’s have a quick look. Hope it can also help you.

Generally speaking, Diabetic Kidney Disease patients start dialysis earlier than those without diabetes, because as long as their Ccr is less than 10-15 ml/min, it is not easy for patients to control blood pressure, which may speed up retinopathy and increase your risk of heart disease and cardiovascular disease so as to threaten your life. If you have obvious symptoms associated with uremia, such as nausea, vomit and swelling, you should start dialysis when your Ccr is 15-20 ml/min, because for diabetics, their kidney disease develops quickly as long as their kidney function is impaired. Now you can calculate your Ccr according to the formula: Ccr=(140-age) *weight/[72*Scr(mg/dL)].

There are usually two kinds of dialysis, namely hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. Hemodialysis can help you have a good control of your blood sugar level and cleanse the blood very well, but it is difficult to make a fistula and during hemodialysis, it is likely for you to suffer from cardiovascular disease. While CAPD can help you preserve the remaining kidney function in the short term and it can be used even if you have cardiovascular disease, but it is difficult to control your blood sugar level.

If you do not want to do dialysis, you should take treatment now to repair the damaged kidneys and promote kidney function. In Traditional Chinese Medicine treatment, many therapies can help you set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Mai Kang Composition, Circle Therapy, Steam Therapy, Enema Therapy, etc.

When should I come on dialysis with creatinine 5 and diabetes? It depends on yourself. If you are interested in our treatment, please feel free to contact online doctor or leave a message below.
