How High Can Creatinine Go Before Dialysis for IgA Nephropathy Patients

How High Can Creatinine Go Before Dialysis for IgA Nephropathy PatientsCreatinine is an indicator of kidney function. When your creatinine level goes to certain extent, you have to undergo dialysis to cleanse the waste products and maintain your life. How high can creatinine go before dialysis for IgA Nephropathy patients? In the article, let’s have a quick look.

This question is difficult to answer. Generally speaking, when creatinine is as high as 6-7 mg/dL, dialysis is recommended. But different IgA Nephropathy patients have different medical conditions. For some patients, they start dialysis when their creatinine level is only 5, because they have a lot of body malaise, such as body pain, nausea, headache, vomit, etc. While for some patients, they do not start dialysis until their creatinine level is as high as 10, because they do not have any body malaise when their creatinine level is 6-7.

How to lower creatinine level and avoid dialysis for IgA Nephropathy patients?

The fundamental way is to repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. IgA Nephropathy is an autoimmune disease caused by IgA depositing in the kidneys, so treatment for IgA Nephropathy should set about regulating the abnormal immune system. Immunotherapy is a combination of western medicine and Chinese medicine. It can cleanse the cycling immune complexes and inflammatory factors from the blood to reduce kidney inflammation. It can increase the kidneys’ tolerance to immune complexes so that even if immune complexes deposit in the kidneys, they do not cause kidney inflammation. Besides, it can block abnormal immune reaction to prevent further kidney damage. Besides, it can strengthen your innate immune system to fight against the disease. After a period of treatment, your creatinine level will decrease and your kidney function will be promoted. As a result, you can avoid dialysis.
