Does Creatinine 6.0 Mean Kidney Failure for FSGS Patients

Does Creatinine 6.0 Mean Kidney Failure for FSGS PatientsDoes creatinine 6.0 mean kidney failure for an individual with FSGS patients? Creatinine level in blood is said to be able to reflect kidney condition and help to decide whether dialysis is needed. Therefore, some FSGS patients wonder at what creatinine level, is dialysis needed. And does creatinine 6.0 mean kidney failure?

Why can creatinine help to reflect kidney condition?

Creatinine level in blood is aways measured to reflect kidney condition because creatinine can pass through kidney freely in normal cases. Creatinine is a metabolite of meat, including muscles and meat we eat. Kidneys perform filtration function through mechanical barrier and charge barrier. Creatinine belongs to small molecular substance, so it can pass through mechanic barrier freely. However, when one develops kidney problem, mechanical barrier and charger barer will be affected. Under such a condition, creatinine can not be excreted out, leading to the elevation of serum creatinine level.

Does creatinine 6.0 mean kidney failure for FSGS patients?

Serum creatinine level is kept in the range of 1.5 to 1.3mg/dL in normal condition. For FSGS patients, due to impaired kidney function, creatinine level in blood increase. In general, the severer the kidney damages are, the higher the creatinine level is. High creatinine level not only reflects kidney condition, but also means high levels of toxins in blood. These toxins circulate with blood and may cause damages on any part of our body. This is the reason why dialysis is needed when creatinine level becomes very high.

Generally speaking, dialysis is suggested when creatinine level in blood is higher than 5 and meanwhile patients are experiencing many torturous symptoms like itchy skin, vomiting and muscle cramps. For FSGS patients, creatinine level 6.0 is very high and it always means illness has developed to end stage which is also called kidney failure stage. Under such a circumstance, dialysis is always suggested for life safety.

Besides, dialysis is helpful for cleaning toxins in blood, but it can not repair kidney function. For an individual with FSGS and creatinine 6.0, aside from dialysis, he also can try Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy which is a herbal treatment and has been used to treat kidney disease from 64 countries. With this treatment, kidney function can be improved and creatinine level also can be lowered down successfully.
