Creatinine is the byproduct of creatine in muscle and is normally passed out of body through kidneys. What is the treatment for creatinine 500?
In right condition, the kidneys remove the wastes from body to keep creatinine at a constant level. Normal creatinine ranges 53~106 umol/L in males and 44 to 97 umol/L and roughly 160 umol/L in people with one kidney. For the powerful compensatory capacity of kidneys, creatinine does not increase until more than half of renal function is lost. Creatinine 500 is far higher than the normal reference. It indicates that your kidneys have been damaged extremely badly.
What is the treatment for creatinine 500? Dialysis is the most common treatment option.
In the past, the patients are often suggested to start dialysis early. It is thought that early dialysis can help preserve the residual renal function to the biggest extent. When creatinine increases to 400umol/L~500umol/L, the patients are suggested to start dialysis.
However, staring dialysis late is better to the patients with renal failure. If the patients have no serious symptoms, such as shortness of breath, fatigue, nausea and vomiting etc, they can delay dialysis treatment. Your doctor will help you decide when to start dialysis, based on results of lab tests that measure how much kidney function you have left and on your symptoms.
Is there other treatment for creatinine 500 except dialysis?
Of course, kidney transplant is a premise treatment option. However, it is difficult to get a compatible kidney donor and also the patients have to encounter high risk.
High creatinine 500 is caused by less ability of kidneys in removing wastes. Reduced renal function is the result of impairment of kidney structure. Thereby, to lower creatinine, the key treatment goal is to restore kidney structure and improve renal function. The combined therapy of Micro- Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and immunotherapy is an alternative treatment for creatinine level 500. It can help restore the impaired kidney structure and improve renal function. Thereby, high creatinine level will lower gradually.
