Creatinine is 4.6 and GFR 13: Is That BadHere is the case: My husband told me his creatinine is4.6 and GFR is 13. Is that bad? He has Polycystic Kidney Disease. Is that the latest stage? How soon will he need dialysis? You may also have such similar questions. And you can get all answers in this article.

Is creatinine 4.6 and GFR 13 bad?

Yes, very serious. Normal creatinine level is 0.5-1.2 mg/dl. GFR (Glomerular Filtration Rate) is a more accurate blood test reflecting how well the kidneys are working. In clinic, when the glomerular filtration rate is below 15 ml/min, it means End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), also called Kidney Failure.

How soon will end stage PKD patient need dialysis?

Your doctor may suggest you to take dialysis immediately. But if you think it is the only way or best way to treat Polycystic Kidney Disease, you are wrong.

Dialysis is called “artificial kidney”, filtering the blood wastes by replacing kidney’s work. It may help relieve symptoms but cannot protect kidney function. During this process, the kidneys do not work. That is to say, the longer term of dialysis, the more kidney function loss.

Are there any natural treatments other than dialysis?

Yes. In our hospital, Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, we use traditional Chinese herbs and Stem Cell Therapy for end stage Polycystic Kidney Disease patients. They can help patients shrink kidney cysts and improve kidney function. All these herbal therapies are conservative methods, treating Polycystic Kidney Disease without puncture or surgery.

Commonly use herbal therapies include Maikang Composition, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and Medicated Bath. They have been used for almost 30 years and have helped patients from about one hundred countries.
