Question: Hi, I am diabetic for last 10 years. Now my creatinine is 5.3, cholesterol and blood pressure are high. Am I having kidney disease? Is it too late to cure?
Answer: Years of uncontrolled diabetes can cause kidney failure. Creatinine level is often used as an indicator of kidney function. Now it is much higher than the normal range, so you are having kidney disease and it is in advanced stage. Diabetes can cause many severe complications, such as heart damage, nerve damage, skin damage, foot damage and so on, so it requires you start dialysis earlier than those whose kidney failure is caused by other diseases. Do you want to start dialysis? If not, go on reading to learn more information.
-To lower creatinine 5.3 and to resume kidney function
What you should do now is to start treatment to lower creatinine level and stabilize the disease to prevent it worsening. In Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, Toxin-Removing Treatment is often used. This treatment is a systemic Chinese medicine treatment, which combines many kinds of therapies, including external therapies like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Navel Therapy, Medicated Bath and Foot Bath, and oral medicine like herbal tea and Mai Kang Composition.
As its name implies, Toxin-Removing Treatment can remove toxins from renal cells and blood to make a clean internal environment for kidney-healing and further medication. It can also dilate blood vessels and remove stasis to improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into damaged kidneys to improve ischemia and anoxia. Besides, a good blood circulation can carry more active ingredients of medicine into nidus to help them recover. After about half month’s treatment, your creatinine level will decrease at least 10%. After about one month’s treatment, your condition will be stabilized. To promote kidney function, you should keep on treatment for months.
It is very late to treat Diabetic Nephropathy when your creatinine level reaches 5.3, but as long as you do not start dialysis, it is possible for you to promote kidney function to keep dialysis away.
