Is Dialysis A Must with High Creatinine“How to lower high creatinine level without dialysis?” “Once I start dialysis, can it be stopped?” Not a few kidney patients have such questions.

Elevated creatinine is a product of worsening kidney function, which in turn can accelerate kidney failure.

When creatinine increases to a certain extent, and drug treatment is not obvious, many kidney patients start dialysis. For some renal patients, although the creatinine level does not reach 707 umol/L, to protect residual kidney function, they do dialysis. And for some patients, although their creatinine level is very high, they do not do dialysis.

Which patients need dialysis?

1. Accompanied by serious complications such as hyperkalemia.

The worse your kidney function, the worse your health, and the more complications. In kidney failure stage, many serious complications will appear, such as hyperkalemia, hyperphosphatemia, and renal anemia. Each complication can endanger the life of kidney patients. To alleviate these complications and the damage of high creatinine, it is suggested to start dialysis as early as possible.

2. Creatinine level over 700 umol/L

When creatinine reaches this level, kidney function is usually poor, and glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is low. At such a case, kidney patients should start dialysis as early as possible, in case that long-term high creatinine causes further kidney damage.

3. Poor pathological type

For some renal patients, their pathological type is poor. Although creatinine levels have not yet reached 700 umol/L, their symptoms such as proteinuria, swelling and so on are very serious, and some other complications also occur. For example, Diabetic Nephropathy. When creatinine level reaches 500 umol/L, dialysis should be started.

To lower creatinine level, protect renal function and put off dialysis, you can do the following things.

1. To keep a low protein diet

Eating too much protein can elevate creatinine level, and it can also worsen proteinuria and put extra stress on kidneys. Generally protein intake should be controlled into 1 g/kg, and for uremia patients, protein intake is about 1 - 1.5g/kg.

2. Intestinal metabolism

The damaged kidneys can not eliminate creatinine from body. Intestinal metabolism can reduce kidney burden appropriately. Enema Therapy and other methods can be used to reduce creatinine.

3. The combination of Chinese medicine and western medicine to reduce creatinine

The commonly used western medicine, such as medicinal charcoal and Niaoduqing can help lower creatinine level, but the effect is not good. You can use Chinese medicine firstly to dredge the kidney channels and improve blood flow, and then use western medicine.
