Everything develops from two routs: Better or Worse. Similarly, any disease will becomes worse if left untreated. Creatinine 5.7 is much higher than the critical level. Without treatment, people with creatinine 5.7 will experience many symptoms or complications. I hope this article can draw your attention and will make those aware of the importance of timely treatment.
What does creatinine 5.7 mean?
Creatinine is the product of muscle metabolism. It is discharged by kidneys as a waste. In general, the level of creatinine in the blood is stable. Some foods, especially red meat and some fish will make the creatinine a sudden but mild higher if the patients take too many those foods. However, creatinine 5.7 is rather higher than the normal range (0.5-1.1mg/ml for women and 0.6-1.2mg/ml for men), which indicates a severe kidney function loss.
When the kidneys are damaged, the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) declines so that excessive creatinine cannot be filtered. Therefore, patients will see their serum creatinine level elevate.
What if creatinine 5.7 is left untreated?
High creatinine will affect many systems and organs. Patients may suffer from such discomforts as:
- Swelling or edema in the hands, feet, legs, and ankles
- Loss of appetite, nausea or vomiting, weight loss
- Itchy and dry skin
- Frequent or painful urination or a change in the color of the urine
- Proteinuria and hematuria
- Shortness of breath
- Muscle cramps or joint pain and leg pain
- High blood pressure
Those are just parts of the symptoms that patients with creatinine 5.7 may experience. The worst result of untreated creatinine 5.7 is kidney failure. In that case, patients have no choice but to do dialysis or kidney transplant. However, there are some ways to lower creatinine and avoid dialysis.
Natural ways to lower creatinine 5.7
This therapy is based on Traditional Chinese Medicines (TCM). With modern technology, the Chinese herbs are micronized so that those ingredients can be used to their fullest potential. They can repair the damaged glomeruli and increase GFR so that excessive can flow out with urine.
As the name implies, this special bath is also based on medicines—Chinese herbs. Both the warm water and the medicines can expand the blood vessels so that it can improve ischemia and anoxia of the kidneys.
If you are diagnosed with high creatinine, do not be so careless about it. We are glad to help you and you will be not disappointed.
