Creatinine 5.3 and IgA Nephropathy: Does He Have to Do Kidney Transplant

Question: My grandson is suffering from IgA Nephropathy. He is 25 years old. His blood pressure is almost under control. His creatinine level is currently 5.3. We are advised by doctors to be prepared for his kidney transplant. We need your advice.

Creatinine 5.3 and IgA Nephropathy: Does He Have to Do Kidney TransplantAnswer: Healthy kidneys can manage creatinine level into 0.5-1.2 mg/dL. Creatinine 5.3 is far beyond the normal range, which indicates that his kidneys are severely damaged and he is almost in end stage renal failure. Conventional treatment for ESRD is dialysis and kidney transplant. Kidney transplant is preferred, because it can allow patients to live a relatively normal life. But I do not advise your grandson to do transplant.

-After transplant, he has to take immunosuppressants to inhibit rejection, but this kind of medicine lowers immunity if used for long term.

-The transplanted kidney can only survive for several years. Years later, he has to do another kidney transplant or do dialysis again.

-IgA Nephropathy has a high recurrence rate. After transplant, it may come back again.

-It takes a lot of money to do a transplant.

Though his creatinine level is very high, it is possible for him to repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function so as to lower his creatinine level. In Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, there are many therapies to help him, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Mai Kang Mixture and decoction. They can draw toxins from body so as to reduce the damage to the kidneys. They can also dilate blood vessels and remove stasis to increase blood flow into the kidneys to improve ischemia and anoxia. Besides, they can reduce blood cholesterol level, decrease blood pressure and regulate blood sugar so as to set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing.

In order to achieve a better curative effect, steam therapy, enema therapy, circle therapy, acupuncture and moxibustion are often used together.

Now it is still possible for your grandson to recover his kidney function so as to keep dialysis and kidney transplant. Do not miss the best treatment time. For more information, please contact online doctor.
