Should I Start Dialysis with Creatinine 5.6 and Nephrotic Syndrome

Should I Start Dialysis with Creatinine 5.6 and Nephrotic SyndromeDialysis is a common used way to lower creatinine level. But not all patients with high creatinine level should do dialysis, because dialysis is not helpful for you to preserve remaining kidney function. Should I start dialysis with creatinine 5.6 and Nephrotic Syndrome?

Whether you should start dialysis or not depends on your conditions.

Under normal circumstance, when creatinine level is as high as 6-7, dialysis is recommended. But for some patients, they do not have any discomfort with high creatinine more than 7. In such cases, they can put off dialysis. While for some patients, they feel very uncomfortable when their creatinine level is still 5. In such case, they may start dialysis to remove waste products. Therefore, it is difficult to tell whether you should start dialysis with creatinine 5.6 or not. You can send your medical test report to igacure@gmail.com. After analyzing your case, our doctor will give you an accurate answer.

How to avoid dialysis for Nephrotic Syndrome patients with creatinine 5.6?

To avoid dialysis and lower creatinine level, you should repair the damaged kidneys and promote kidney function. For Nephrotic Syndrome patients, conventional treatment is to use steroids and other immunosuppressants to inhibit kidney inflammation and stop protein leakage. This may help slow down the progression, but that is not enough, because they can not remove immune complexes from the kidneys to eliminate kidney inflammation. In China, we often use Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to treat Nephrotic Syndrome. In TCM, there are many therapies, such ash Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Mixture, Enema Therapy, Steam Therapy, Circle Therapy, etc. They can draw out toxins from your body to reduce toxin concentration in the blood so as to reduce their damage to your body. They can expand blood vessels to increase blood flow into the kidneys so as to improve ischemia and anoxia. They can speed up blood circulation to remove stasis so as to prevent thrombus. Besides, they can inhibit kidney inflammation and stop kidney fibrosis. With the improvement of kidney function, your creatinine level will decrease and you can keep dialysis away.

Should I start dialysis with creatinine 5.6 and Nephrotic Syndrome? It depends. For more information, please feel free to contact online doctor or leave a message below.
