When kidney failure patients are troubled by high creatinine level or serious complications, dialysis usually is the first choice to treat them. Then, for kidney failure, is dialysis enough to treat creatinine level 7.8? According to this question, we will give you the answer from the following article. If you have any unclear things, we hope can you ask for free advice from our online doctors.
What does creatinine level 7.8 mean?
For normal people, the safe creatinine level is between 0.5mg/dl and 1.2mg/dl, thus, we can see that creatinine level 7.8 is very higher than normal. In clinic, according to creatinine level and GFR, Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is divided into five stages, and the specific condition is as follows.
|CKD stages||GFR (ml/min)||Creatinine level|
|CKD stage1||≧90||<1.5 mg/dl 132umol/l|
|CKD stage2||60~89||1.6-2.0 141- 177|
|CKD stage3||30~59||2.1-5.0 186- 442|
|CKD stage4||15~29||5.1-7.9 451- 698|
|CKD stage5||<15||>8.0 >707|
From the above form, we can see that creatinine level 7.8 means that the kidneys are damaged seriously and the patients are in CKD stage 4.
Is Dialysis enough to treat creatinine level 7.8?
Dialysis indeed aims at removing out the small molecule materials including creatinine, BUN and urea, so it can lower high creatinine level effectively. While, it does not mean that it is enough to treat high creatinine level, because the root cause of high creatinine level is the decreased GFR. Thus, improving the GFR and repairing the damaged kidney can treat high creatinine level from root. However, dialysis has no the function of repairing the damaged kidney and restoring the kidney function. Therefore, dialysis is not enough to treat creatinine level 7.8.
According to clinical applications, some natural treatments proved that they can protect the left kidney and repair the damaged kidney. Though CKD stage 4 means that you are in kidney failure, natural treatments also can help you block the progress of kidney failure, treat all complications and prevent them relapsing.
