What To Do with Creatinine Level 5.8 and Nephrotic Syndrome

What To Do with Creatinine Level 5.8 and Nephrotic SyndromeDialysis is suggested when creatinine level in blood is as high as 5.8, because it means lots of toxins have accumulated in the blood and if these toxic substances can not be removed as soon as possible, internal organs will be affected. However, is dialysis the only option when creatinine level increases to 5.8? What else they can do if Nephrotic Syndrome patients refuse to do dialysis?

Dialysis as of now is the most direct way to cleanse blood, but it is not an ideal solution due to its side effects like low blood pressure, headache, vomiting and infection and so on. For Nephrotic Syndrome patients whose creatinine is higher than 5.8, they can successfully avoid dialysis with comprehensive treatment.

The following several aspects are usually included by the comprehensive treatment for creatinine level 5.8:

1. Protection of residual kidney function

Excessive fluid and some wastes in our blood are excreted out of the body by our kidneys, so as long as there is urine output, there is healthy kidney function. Creatinine 5.8 is several times higher than the reference value (0.5-1.3mg/dL), but it does not mean there is no healthy kidney function. Protection for residual kidney function is the basic to prevent further increase of serum creatinine level and to achieve this goal, medicines for high blood pressure, proteinuria and anemia and other symptoms are usually needed.

2. Restore of impaired kidney function

Decline of kidney function is the root cause of elevation of serum creatinine, so only kidney function gets improved, can creatinine level 5.8 be reduced. Micro-Chinese Medicine is a good choice for people with kidney damages. This therapy is only available in China and so far has been used to treat patients from more than 64 countries. With this treatment, some kidney function can be restored successfully and as long as kidney function is improved, creatinine level decreases.

3. A scientific diet

What we eat is closely associated with our physical condition. For Nephrotic Syndrome patients, a scientific diet plays a very imporant part for the successful recovery of kidney function, so finding out what they can eat and can not eat is very necessary. Diet for kidney disease patients should be on the basis of specific illness condition. And if you want to know the personalized diet plan, you can send your test report to us. After the analysis, our experts will send you diet suggestions.

Nephrotic Syndrome is hard to be treated, but it does not mean there is no effective treatment. Therefore, please do not give up easily and as long as your kidney disease is treated fundamentally, your creatinine level can be lowered down to the normal level finally.

Hope the above information is helpful for you. If you have any other questions on kidney disease or want to get more personalized and professional treatment suggestions, please leave a message below.
