My Creatinine Level is 4.8 In FSGS, Will I Need Dialysis

My Creatinine Level is 4.8 In FSGS, Will I Need DialysisIn our daily life, if someone is diagnosed with FSGS, we often hear his or her doctor and nurses talking about his or her creatinine level which is considered as an important indicator to reflet how well the kidney function working. Well then, when the creatinine level is 4.8 in FSGS, what does it mean and will the dialysis be needed?

What is the meaning of creatinine level is 4.8 in FSGS?

Normally, for a healthy people, the creatinine level ranges from 0.5-1.2mg/dL. It is obvious that creatinine level 4.8 has far exceeded the normal range. For FSGS patients with creatinine level 4.8, we have to say they have already stepped into chronic kidney disease stage 3, we also call it decompensated period, but which can be reversed successfully if treatments are provided timely. Here, you may ask will I need dialysis?

Honestly speaking, creatinine level 4.8 is a little earlier to take dialysis, and patients should take all the factors into consideration before making this decision, such as its costs, efficacy and above all, your specific illness condition. Actually, the creatinine level does not have any direct relationship with dialysis, that is to say whether dialysis is needed or not mainly depends on if you have some serious complications.

For those FSGS patients with creatinine level 4.8 but don’t start dialysis, they should receive timely and effective treatments to repair damaged kidney and improve kidney function and then avoid dialysis try their best. Here a natural therapy known as Hot Compress based on Chinese herbal medicines is highly recommended to them. It seems as massage but the biggest difference is this therapy is responsible for restoring declined kidney function, promoting DNA self-replication of kidney inherent cells and providing nutritions to injured kidney through active materials directly arriving at kidney.

Finally, we want to say everyone has the right to live a normal life if you find some effective methods timely. Please believe in and contact us as soon as possible, we will try our best to help you.
