Creatinine 7.4, Urea 145 and Potassium Level 3.5: Is This Condition Serious

2015-05-18 09:33


I am having diabetes for more than 10 years and hypertension for the last three years. My creatinine level is 7.4, urea is 145, and my potassium level is 3.5. Is it serious?


Creatinine 7.4, Urea 145 and Potassium Level 3.5: Is This Condition SeriousDiabetes is a leading cause of chronic kidney disease. When your kidney function is slightly impaired by Diabetes, your creatinine and urea do not increase. Only when more than 50% kidneys are damaged do creatinine and urea increase. Now both your creatinine level and urea are beyond the normal level (creatinine level 0.5-1.2 mg/dL and urea level 6-20 mg/dL). But your blood potassium level is within the normal range (3.5 to 5.2 mmol/L).

High creatinine and urea level should be lowered as early as possible, otherwise they may cause further damage to your kidneys so as to speed up kidney failure. Generally speaking, when creatinine is more than 5, diabetics should start dialysis, because they usually can not bear the discomforts brought by the high toxin concentration in the blood.

Dialysis is a quick way to cleanse the blood and it can also maintain your life, but at the same time, dialysis has many side effects, such as skin itch, muscle cramp and infections. And because dialysis can not preserve your kidney function, you have to undergo dialysis for long-term. If you do not want to do dialysis, you can try our treatment—Blood Pollution Therapy. This therapy combines many kinds of blood purification therapies both in Chinese medicine and western medicine. They do not only cleanse waste products in the blood, but also remove stasis in the blood vessels to improve blood circulation in the kidneys. Besides, it supplements the essential nutrients into the blood according to your medical condition. When your kidneys get enough oxygen and nutrients, they can repair themselves to certain extent. And then your creatinine and urea level can get under control.

Now your case is very severe. Immediate treatment is needed if you want to preserve your kidney function and maintain your life. With the help of online doctor, you can learn more information.
