Serum creatinine 4.6 is much higher than normal range. eGFR (Glomerular Filtration Rate) 23 indicates you are at Stage 4 CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease). What if that happens?
Symptoms of creatinine 4.6 and eGFR 23
Creatinine is the waste product of muscle metabolism, and is discharged by kidneys with urine. Normal range of serum creatinine is 0.5-1.1 mg/dl for female and 0.6-1.2 for male. Creatinine 4.6 means the kidneys are severely damage. As a result, patients may have the following problems:
● Swelling in hands, legs, feet or face
● Protein in the urine (proteinuria)
● Blood in urine (hematuria)
● High blood pressure
● Skin itching
● Muscle cramps
The above symptoms are commonly seen in patients with Stage 4 CKD. But some of the problems may be caused by other underlying conditions. If you have any symptom listed above or have other problems, please email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message below. Our doctor on duty will reply you in 24 hours.
Treatment for lowering creatinine 4.6 and eGFR 23
In order to lower creatinine 4.6 and improve eGFR 23 from the root, I recommend you to take Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). In our hospital, Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, we choose Chinese herbs that can purify the blood. They work by dilating blood vessels, reduce inflammation and degrade extracellular matrixes, thus increasing blood circulation. Therefore, kidneys can get enough blood volume and oxygen to function well, and creatinine can be excreted adequately. Commonly used methods include Maikang Mixture, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath and Acupuncture with moxibustion.
The above therapies are only available in our hospital, which is located in Hebei Province, China. That is to say, if you want to take these herbal medicines, you need to come to China.
