What does Stage 4 Kidney Failure mean with creatinine 3.8 mean? Well, you should know what creatinine means firstly.
What does creatinine 3.8 mean?
Creatinine is the by-product of muscle metabolism, which is discharged by the kidney as a waste. Since the muscle mass is stable, the generation of creatinine won’t change much. The normal range of the creatinine is 0.5-1.1mg/dl for female and 0.6-1.2mg/dl for male. When the creatinine level elevates, it indicates your kidney filtration function is abnormal. How much creatinine can be discharged is reflected by the glomerular filtration rate (GFR). Both creatinine and GFR are taken as the standard to divide kidney kidneys into five stages, and creatinine 3.8 indicates Stage 4 Kidney Failure.
What are the symptoms of Stage 4 Kidney Failure?
In stage 4 Kidney Failure, your kidney function has lost at least 70%-80%. The kidney plays a very important role of the body. When it is moderately damaged in stage 4, it will lead to some symptoms such as swelling, fatigue, hypoproteinemia (low protein level in the blood), high blood pressure, protein or blood in the urine, frequent urine, urgent urine, poor appetite, nausea, vomiting, and itchy skin. There is no doubt that timely and reasonably treatment is necessary. If left untreated, stage 4 kidney failure will develop into Stage 5 Kidney Failure, which is also called “Uremia”. At this stage, dialysis or kidney transplant will be recommended. However, you must do not want to suffer that pain. Therefore, I will introduce you Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. As the name implies, this therapy is based on traditional Chinese medicines. What are the differences between this therapy and dialysis?
Dialysis is known as “artificial kidney”, which means that dialysis can replace the kidney to remove wastes and toxins. That is to say, the kidney needs not to work during dialysis. Actually, it is not good for you because the kidney function will lose more and more gradually.
However, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can help repair the damaged intrinsic renal cells so as to protect and improve the remaining kidney function. It will be better to let the kidney function itself.
