CKD Stage 5, or chronic kidney disease stage 5, must be accompanied with high creatinine level like creatinine 6.1. To lower high creatinine level, most patients choose dialysis. However, dialysis shouldn’t be their only treatment choice.
Dialysis to reduce creatinine 6.1 for CKD Stage 5
Dialysis is one method of blood purification with a feature of cleansing blood and eliminating creatinine, uric acid, urea, etc. When kidneys especially kidney filters are damaged, they can’t filter out waste products including creatinine effectively. Then, creatinine level in the blood increases obviously. Normally, creatinine level ranges from 0.5~1.1 mg/dl for female and 0.6~1.2 mg/dl for male. Creatinine 6.1 is much higher than the normal value, so patients are usually recommended to begin dialysis.
Most patients find their creatinine level goes down obviously after several times of dialysis, but they find that their creatinine level rises again during dialysis session. Also, they experience some side effects or complications easily.
Is there a treatment to reduce creatinine 6.1 for CKD Stage 5 other than dialysis?
The fortunate answer is yes. Polluted Blood Therapy is another treatment option. To cleanse patients’ internal environment thoroughly, various blood purification methods and Chinese medicines with the property of activating blood and removing stasis are applied according to patients’ illness condition.
Compared with dialysis, plasma exchange, immune adsorption, CRRT, hemofiltration and many other blood purification methods can not only cleanse patients’ blood more thoroughly but also add some essential nutritions to blood. Therefore, you choose one effective method with online doctor’s help.
At the same time, some medicines which have effects of improving blood circulation and removing waste products are used for patients with CKD Stage 5. These medicines are taken to eliminate those toxins adhering to blood vascular walls or that are difficult to remove out by blood purification means.
With these methods, patients can find their creatinine level reduces obviously. If fortunately enough, patients can get rid of dialysis completely.
