High Creatinine Level
What is high creatinine level?
Creatinine is a by-product of muscle contraction and to small extent from meat you consume. Because it is mainly passed out of body by kidneys, creatinine level is used for an indicator of renal function. Normal creatinine level is about 0.6-1.2mg/dL in adult males, and 0.5-1.1 mg/dL in adult females. When creatinine level is beyond the normal range, it is high creatinine level. And elevated creatinine level signifies impaired kidney function or kidney disease. Therefore, attach importance when your creatinine level increases.
What causes high creatinine level?
When the kidneys become impaired for any reason, the creatinine level in the blood will rise due to poor clearance of creatinine by the kidneys. However, the kidneys have immense compensatory ability. When kidneys are slightly damaged, your creatinine level may not change. Only when kidney damage is over 50%, there is a quick elevation in creatinine level.
Why is high creatinine level long-lasting?
At present, there are some specific medicines to lower high creatinine level. For example,-Ketosteril. It is to reduce your protein intake so as to decrease the production of creatinine.
-Niaoduqing granules. It is to make us of your intestinal tract to discharge waste products from body.
-Medicinal charcoal. It can absorb the creatinine in the blood and then dispel it from body.
-Enema Therapy. It is a Chinese medicine, which makes use of your intestinal tract to eliminate waste products.
-Dialysis. It is to make dialysis machine to filter waste products from the blood.
With the above ways, your creatinine level can be reduced, but it will increase again, because they can not repair kidney damage and restore renal function. Only when you resume your renal function can creatinine be passed out naturally.
That is why you cannot lower creatinine level and stabilize it.
How do we treat high creatinine level?
In our hospital, "Detoxification Therapy", also called "Nine-Kind Therapy for Clearing Blood Toxins", is often used into kidney disease treatment. It can help you lower creatinine level and stabilize it.
This treatment includes nine therapies:

5. Cytokine Infusion Therapy
6. Negative Oxygen Ion Therapy
7. Ozone Therapy
8. Trace Element and Vitamin Supplementary Therapy
9. Developing Good Living Habits
Some therapies work together to have a thorough cleanse of the blood so as to bring creatinine level down. Some are to restore the balance of anti-inflammatory cytokines and pro-inflammatory cytokines to reduce renal inflammation and control the disease from getting worse. Some are to improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into kidneys. Some are to provide essential elements for kidney self-healing, such as oxygen, nutrients, vitamins, trace elements, etc. And some are to guarantee the therapeutic effect and prevent relapse.
To what extent can we reduce high creatinine level?

You can have a sound sleep at night.
After about one month's treatment, your disease will be under control, and renal function will get improved gradually, and then creatinine can be passed out naturally.
