My uncle is 54 years old and suffering from kidney failure. His doctor tells us his latest report shows that creatinine 6.0 mg/dl, BUN 54.9 mg/dl and GFR is about 15%. Now, he hasn’t begun dialysis. We urgently want to know how to lower his high creatinine and BUN level without dialysis. Is it possible to reverse his kidney damage? Please, tell me.
Both creatinine 6.0 and BUN 54.9 are much higher than their normal levels. If not removed timely, excess wastes including creatinine and blood urea nitrogen will build up in the body and cause further damage to kidneys as well as other organs. GFR 15% means patient’s condition has developed end stage kidney disease where the kidney can’t do its job very well.
In this situation, some doctors may suggest patients to begin dialysis to eliminate excess wastes and remit patients’ condition. However, for people who have enough urine and 15% of GFR, dialysis can be avoided, because the following methods can help improve their kidney function and increase the kidneys’ filtering rate.
Consume more fruits and vegetables that are good for kidney function: According to research of Turkey, foods high in vitamin C can help achieve this goal, so patients with kidney failure can consume more these foods such as cranberry and kiwi fruit. However, patients whose potassium is higher than normal had better avoid it. Therefore, you had better consult the online doctor to make a correct diet plan.
Some herbal tea: Drinking a glass of herbal tea is able to increase the rate of kidney filtering wastes. Here, we mainly recommend three herbal teas: nettle leaf, salvia, and dandelion root.
Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy: It is considered one of most effective treatments to improve patients’ kidney function and repair the damaged kidney tissues. If used correctly, you can find your overall health is improved largely.
