If Creatinine Is High Is Dialysis A Treatment for It

Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2014-02-10 08:04

If Creatinine Is High Is Dialysis A Treatment for ItDialysis is indeed one treatment option to lower high creatinine level, but this doesn’t mean patients should begin dialysis as long as their creatinine level is high. Because our kidneys are powerful organs that can still work properly even not functioning at 100%. Therefore, whether dialysis is one treatment for high creatinine level is determined by patients’ individual conditions.

In some cases, patients need to begin dialysis as soon as possible.

Dialysis is needed when patients’ own kidneys are not enough to maintain patients’ basic life. With the progress of kidney disease, kidney function level, or GFR, becomes lower and lower. Then, some emergency complications require patients to begin dialysis timely. For example, patients’ potassium level is higher than 6.5mmol/L, patients have uncontrolled hypertension, lung edema or no urine, or their creatinine level is above 400 mmol/L, and many other conditions. Here, I want to remind patients with high creatinine level that if your problem is due to diabetic, you may need to begin dialysis earlier than others for preventing complications.

In most cases, patients can still live with their kidneys.

Dialysis indeed can do a lot for kidney disease patients, but it may also cause a series of side effects and complications. No one wants to live with dialysis even for the fittest patient. Therefore, if you still don’t have the above emergency conditions, you still have a chance to avoid dialysis successfully. Here, we would like to suggest some alternative treatment options, in order to help you lower your creatinine level.

- Medicated Bath: This is one treatment that can increase skin excretion amount and improve circulatory system. As some creatinine level is removed out by skin, it can reduce the burden on kidneys.

- Enema therapy: Through increasing intestinal tract excretion, enema therapy can make waste products including creatinine discharged by intestinal tract rather than kidneys.

Many other treatment options can also replace dialysis to lower high creatinine level. You can learn whether you should begin dialysis according to this article.
