"My husband is 63 years old, had stage V CKD, 833 creatinine level. After 2 weeks on a 3 times a week dialysis, it went down to 530. Is there any possibility that the frequency can be reduced to only once or twice a week, or once a month? Thank you."
Hello, whether your husband can reduce the frequency of dialysis depends on his kidney function which is manifested by creatinine level and also the complications. You found his creatinine level was reached 833, which shows his kidney are working less than 10%. In this condition, he may go through many discomforts, such as weakness, edema, back pain, itching skin, nausea and vomiting, etc. Did he ever have these symptoms before? How long has he been do dialysis? How About his urine output?
For his case, every time he finished his dialysis, his creatinine level will be lowered, but it will gradually go up to high once more. This is the reason why he needs to take dialysis to filter the blood by the machine periodically. Besides, as the dialysis can not clear up all the unwanted things, the remained ones will injure the kidney cells continuously. As a result, the kidney function will be less and less with dialysis and thus he has to take dialysis more often.
If you and your husband want to reduce dialysis, he should receive another treatment to repair damaged kidneys. Otherwise, kidney transplant will be the only choice for him in clinic.
In his kidney, there are three types of cells: died ones, diseased ones and healthy ones. And what we can do for him is to repair the diseased renal cells to normal progressively. As a matter of fact, we can do nothings to save the died ones. With the help of effective measures which signifies Chinese medicine in our hospital, his kidney function will be elevated and creatinine level will be lowered automatically. In the meanwhile, the discomforts will be remitted and he can stop dialysis. For the detailed treatment plan, I need to know more about his illness conditions.
Please send his latest medical reports to me, if you do not mind. I need to analyze his present illness condition and give you more information about alternative treatments and diets in details.
Hope I can hear from you as soon as possible. I am very glad to help you. If you need any help, please do not hesitate to contact me.
