Can You Only Wait for Kidney Failure if High Creatinine Cannot Be Lowered
Serum creatinine is not only an important indicator of renal function, but also a key evidence for judging uremia. With the development of renal disease, the creatinine values at different stages are different.
In the early stage of renal inflammation, renal function is not injured and serum creatinine is not elevated, which is lower than 133 umol/L.
In the middle stage of inflammation, renal function is slightly impaired and serum creatinine is between 133 and 177 umol/L.
During the fibrosis stage, it progresses to the stage of renal insufficiency, and serum creatinine ranges from 186 umol/L to 442 umol/L.
During fibrosis and sclerosis, renal atrophy occurs with renal failure, and serum creatinine is between 443 and 707 umol/L.
Finally, it develops to the end stage renal disease (ESRD, also known as uremia stage), and serum creatinine exceeds 707 umol/L.
In the first two stages, the impairment of renal function is often relatively mild. As long as prompt treatment is given, creatinine can return to normal in most kidney patients. When it comes to the stage of renal insufficiency and Kidney Failure, it is also the key stage in the treatment of nephropathy, in which substantive damage to the kidney occurs, and renal function is difficult to reverse, but it can be controlled. When it goes to uremia stage, renal impairment is more than 90%, so dialysis has to be started to discharge the toxins from the blood so as to preserve residual renal function.
Many kidney patients are just in the middle stage. Creatinine is between 186 umol/L and 707 umol/L. No matter how to treat creatinine, the creatinine value is not normal, but it can not reach the dialysis target. It seems that the treatment has met the "bottleneck stage". In this case, how should kidney patients choose? To continue treatment? Or wait for kidney failure?
In view of this situation, it is certainly unwise to give up treatment. It is suggested that the kidney patients should change their thinking of treatment on the basis of the original treatment. Renal impairment can not be reversed, so it is unrealistic to recover creatinine completely. For kidney patients at this stage, the main purpose is to protect residual renal function and avoid uremia.
You can do a good job in these three aspects:
1. Promoting Blood Circulation
Creatinine is a toxin in the body, which accumulates in the body due to the decline of renal filtration function, which in turn impairs renal function. In addition, with the deterioration of renal function, there are symptoms such as hypertension, proteinuria and edema, which aggravate the state of renal ischemia and hypoxia and accelerate fibrosis.
To alleviate this situation, we must pay attention to the circulation of blood in the kidney. Only when the blood are circulated can toxins be discharged from the body. To promote blood circulation, on the one hand, we should ensure the stability of symptoms such as hypertension and proteinuria, which is helpful to maintain the stability of renal function. On the other hand, we can use Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to dredge the channels and activate blood circulation.
2. Improving Metabolism
Kidney is an important organ of the body’s metabolism. When the metabolism function of other tissues can not function normally, it is necessary to strengthen the metabolic function of other tissues. For example, traditional Chinese medicine Steam Therapy can be used to remove toxins through sweat. In addition, improving dietary structure is also conducive to promoting metabolism. To eat less fat, cholesterol-rich food, and eat more cellulose, vitamin-rich food.
3. Reducing the Kidney Burden
Kidney function damage is mainly due to the heavy burden, so kidney patients should learn to reduce the burden of the kidney. On the one hand, to reduce the metabolic burden. In addition to diet, do not take drugs arbitrarily, in order to avoid causing drug-induced kidney damage. On the other hand, let the kidney rest more. Get rid of some kidney injury habits, such as irregular work and rest, often staying up late, smoking, drinking and so on, which are not good for the kidney.
Do not only wait for kidney failure when creatinine level can not be lowered. You can try Chinese Medicine Treatment to help improve renal condition. For more information on high creatinine treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
