Can renal failure patient with creatinine 2.6 avoid dialysis? One of my patients asks me this question yesterday. In renal failure, patient nearly has lost all of kidney function and his creatinine level raises quickly. If the creatinine level increases too high or some severe complications occurred, the patient has to temporarily rely on dialysis to live.
When should patient with renal failure begin dialysis?
The kidney function is the main factor that determines whether the patients need dialysis. Generally, patients won’t begin dialysis until their kidney function decreases to less than 15%. Creatinine level is an indicator of kidney function. Normally, it doesn’t be higher than the normal level unless more than 50% of kidney function has lost. Some relevant clinical researches reveal that people with kidney disease usually begin their dialysis when their creatinine level is about 5.0mg/dl, but this value can change for different patients. The reason is that if only their creatinine level is high but they don’t have any other severe complications, they don’t need dialysis even though their creatinine level is much higher than 5.0mg/dl, while they have to begin dialysis earlier with some complications.
Can renal failure patient with creatinine 2.6 avoid dialysis?
Creatinine 2.6 is much lower than 5.0, so it is possible for them to avoid dialysis with good control of complications and improvement of kidney function.
Control high blood pressure and proteinuria
High blood pressure and proteinuria both are the common symptoms of renal failure and main factors that aggravate patients’ condition. Therefore, treating them actively and timely is an important part to slow down the progression of patients’ medical disease and delay the time of dialysis starting. A healthy diet with low salt and protein and correct medications are both obbligato.
Improve the kidney function
This is the most fundamental method to help renal failure patient with creatinine 2.6 avoid dialysis. With the benefits of nourishing damaged kidney cells, extending blood vessels, increasing the blood flow on the kidney, regulating immune system and increasing patients’ self-curative ability, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is suggested for this patient, because it has helped many other kidney failure patients improve their kidney function successfully.
