Creatinine 5.6 is so high, but should patients start dialysis? In general, when Kidney Failure patients have creatinine higher than 5 mg/dl, dialysis is required. But creatinine is not the only determining factor of dialysis.
When patients should take dialysis?
Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) is more accurate than creatinine. When GFR levels reduces below 15 ml/min, dialysis is suggested. In some case, patients who have uncontrolled symptoms or complications such as cardiovascular disease, severe swelling, high blood pressure or persistent diarrhea are also recommended to take dialysis, even though the creatinine level lower than 5 mg/dl.

One more thing I want to tell you is that dialysis is not the perfect way to treat Kidney Failure patients. Dialysis just does replace kidneys to filter wastes and toxins, but cannot work as well as healthy kidneys. In addition, Kidney Failure patients have to bear the side effects of dialysis.
Natural remedies for Kidney Failure patients
-Maikang composition. It is one bottle of Chinese herbal medicine. Patients take this medicine each day to detox the body. The main function of Maikang composition is to promote Qi and unlock meridians so that blood circulation increases and kidneys can get enough oxygen. Then, ischemia and anoxia in kidneys are improved and renal function is improved.
-Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. It one of the commonly used therapies in our hospital. This external application can treat kidney disease directly and fundamentally. Patients with this therapy can see short terms such as increase urine output, good appetite, improved sleep quality and relieve pain and fatigue, etc.
-Stem Cell Therapy. Stem cells can differentiate into many stem cells with certain function. This therapy can help restore some kidney function naturally, thus reducing dialysis frequency.
