How Serious the Kidney Damage Is If Creatine Level is 62016-09-27 16:36
The normal range of creatinine level is between 0.6 and 1.3. Obviously, creatinine 6 is much higher than normal range, which means kidney damage is very severe. In general, level 6 of creatinine is the sign of stage 4 of chronic kidney disease. At this stage, if kidney damage can’t be prevented or alleviated, it will develop into end stage kidney disease which is treated by dialysis or kidney transplant on most occasions.
How to know whether you need to take dialysis or not?
In fact, doing dialysis depends on many factors:
1. Levels of wastes and toxins.
2. How serious kidney damage is.
3. How high creatinine level is.
4. How serious symptoms caused by kidney disease are. For example, swelling, high blood pressure，heart problems，etc.
Consequently, patients with creatinine 6 should depend on the specific condition of kidney function and symptoms to decide whether to do dialysis.
In clinic, for patients with creatinine level 6, if potassium level overtakes 7mmol/L, or BUN level is higher than 54mmol/L, dialysis should be required urgently. If patients with creatinine level 6 still have urine with other obvious symptoms, dialysis can be delayed. Patients with creatinine 6 must prevent kidney function from decreasing if they want to avoid dialysis. Some medicines and a healthy diet can contribute to lowering creatinine, but this is not enough. Patients with creatinine 6 should recover kidney function, which is the fundamental solution. In recent years, clinical practice proves that Chinese medicines can repair kidney damage and recover kidney function. Besides, Chinese medicines have no side effects on patients with kidney disease.
Patients with creatinine 6 should get treatment timely to improve kidney function. Only in this way can patients with creatinine 6 avoid dialysis. If you have other questions about kidney disease, you can send email to us, we will try our best to help you.
