High creatinine level is a common symptom in kidney disease, and it is often looked as a reliable indicator to reflect kidney function. Then, what is the creatinine level for patients with stage 4 kidney disease? Are there any methods to reduce high creatinine level?
Creatinine is a waste and normally it will be discharged out of the body by kidneys. The normal range of creatinine level in adults is 0.5~1.1mg/dl for female and 0.6~1.2mg/dl for male. High creatinine level may be caused by eating much meat, strenuous exercises and some certain medications, while the primary cause of high creatinine level is the reduced kidney function. Different stages of kidney disease have different creatinine levels.
Stage 1: Normal kidney function. Cr (creatinine) is about 40-120umol/L.
Stage 2: Renal function in compensatory period. Cr is about 133-177umol/L.
Stage 3: Renal function in decompensation period. Cr is about 177-442umol/L.
Stage 4: Kidney failure. Cr is about 442-707umol/L.
Stage 5: Uremia. Cr is more than 707umol/L.
A person with Stage 4 CKD (chronic kidney disease) has advanced kidney damage with a severe decreased GFR (glomerular filtration rate) which is about 15~29ml/min. In this case, kidneys have lost most function and it means kidney failure. As kidney function severely declines, waste products and toxins will build up in the body, resulting in kidney failure and disorder of immune system. The more serious kidney function declines, the higher creatinine level is. Then how to reduce creatinine level for patients with stage 4 kidney disease? More detailed information, you can talk with our online doctors or email to email@example.com
1. Diet modification.
The most naturally effective way to decrease creatinine level is by ditching the meat on your plate and having a fully vegetarian diet.
2. Avoid strenuous exercises
Furthermore, high creatinine level patients should also avoid rigorous physical activity, which will slow the process of the breakdown of creatine into creatinine.
In fact, it is likely someone with stage 4 kidney disease will need dialysis or a kidney transplant in the near future in order to maintain lifespan. However, neither dialysis nor kidney transplant is a natural and safe treatment for patients. Fortunately, a new therapy called “Blood Pollution Therapy” is created. The therapy is a perfect combination of blood purification and Chinese medicines. It can achieve the goal of repairing damaged kidney cells and tissues through cleaning blood. And it can provide essential nutritions to blood and promote blood circulation. As long as kidney function increases, high creatinine level will come down naturally.
