What does creatinine 8 mean?
Normal serum creatinine level is 0.5-1.1 mg/dL for female and 0.6-1.2 mg/dL for male. In general, when creatinine levels reaches to 5, dialysis is required. Therefore, creatinine 8 is so high and need immediate treatments.
Will dialysis reduce creatinine 8 to normal?
Dialysis is called “artificial kidney” because it removes waste products and extra fluid in the body. There are two types of dialysis: hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. This method can reduce creatinine fast and effectively, but it cannot bring serum creatinine 8 back to normal. What’s more, dialysis cannot repair the damaged renal tissues. Therefore, once patients stop dialysis, the serum creatinine levels rises again. Therefore, patients with creatinine 8 need more effective treatments that can improve renal function.
Natural treatment other than dialysis for patients with creatinine 8
In our hospital, Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, we mainly use Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). They key effect of these medicines is to improve blood circulation by expanding blood vessels, reduce inflammation and degrade extracellular matrixes. Therefore, the kidneys can get enough blood volume and oxygen to repair the damaged tissues. Then, waste products can be discharged adequately by the kidneys.
During the treatment, we may give patients Maikang Composition, Chinese herbal decoction, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Food Bath, Blood Pollution Therapy or Stem Cell Therapy, according to the patient’s own illness condition.
Each of the above therapies has its advantages. You can send you test report to email@example.com, and our experts will reply you within 24 hours. He or she can give you some suggestion for free.
