What Does Creatinine 3.8 Mean for FSGS Patients

What Does Creatinine 3.8 Mean for FSGS PatientsFocal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a type of kidney disease in which scar tissue develops on parts of the kidneys that filter waste products out of the blood. Creatinine is such a kind of waste product passed out of the body by kidneys. Normal serum creatinine level ranges from 0.5-1.3 mg/dL(In different areas, the data may have a little difference). What does creatinine 3.8 mean for FSGS patients?

Creatinine 3.8 means your kidneys are severely damaged.

Creatinine is produced constantly when muscle contracts. Meat also is also a source of creatinine. But under normal circumstance, creatinine level can be kept into the normal range, because our kidneys can remove the excessive creatinine from the blood. And because our kidneys have a lot of excess capacity built into them, it is not until your kidneys lose more than 50% of their functions that blood creatinine level increases quickly. Now your creatinine is almost three times the normal range, which means your kidneys have been damaged severely.

How to lower creatinine 3.8 for FSGS patients?

To lower creatinine 3.8, you should repair the damaged kidneys and promote kidney function. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), there are many therapies to help you, such as 4M treatment(Mai Kang Mixture, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Foot Bath and various Medicinal Soup) and 7 external therapies (Medicated Full Bath, Circle Therapy, Enema Therapy, Acupoint Application, Steam Therapy, Acupuncture and Moxibustion). When 4M treatment does not take obvious effect, 7 external therapies are used to treat your kidney disease. They can regulate the qi flowing through the channels, remove stasis and cleanse waste products in the blood so as to set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing. They can also provide the damaged kidneys with essential nutrients to speed up their recovery. When your kidneys regain their ability, creatinine level will come down.
