Hi, I have been experiencing foamy urine, extremely itchy skin, and periods of feeling very hot, especially at night, but no night sweats, creatinine 4.8, what can i do to cure it? One patient consulted our ONLINE DOCTOR in this afternoon.
What is foamy urine and skin itching?
Kidneys remove wastes from the bloodstream. When the kidneys fail, the build-up of wastes in your blood can cause severe itching.
Kidneys make urine, so when the kidneys are failing, the urine may change. How?
Urine may be foamy or bubbly. This can lead to an above-normal amount of protein in the urine
How to relieve skin itching and foamy urine, lower creatinine 4.8?
1. Watch out your diet
In this stage, you are required to limit sodium, protein, potassium, phosphorus, fat, carbohydrate or even calcium. How much you can take is based on your own condition. In general, when GFR (glomerular filtration rate) is below 25, patients should take protein 0.6 g/kg of body weight each day, and sodium not more than 2 g.
2. Drink enough water
If you can still urinate normally, you can drink plenty of water which can increase your urine output so that extra creatinine can be discharged by the kidneys. Drinking 2,000 mg to 3,000 mg water is OK.
3. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been used for centuries to treat various diseases. Since most of them come from plants, so they are very natural. Based on TCM, we create Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. It is an external application put on Shenshu (an acupoint on kidney area). It can expand blood vessels, reduce inflammation and degrade extracelluar matrixes. All these are to improve blood circulation and help kidneys repair damaged renal tissues.
