She is diabetic and hypertensive. 10 year before she suffered from stroke.

OK, I see. Then, is she taking any treatments now?

Yes. 3 continues dialysis done in last week. Before dialysis creatinine is 9.1 after 2 dialysis her creatinine level fall 6.6 but after 3rd dialysis her creatinine suddenly increase 8.6. Yesterday we repeat creatinine which is 9.1 again.

OK. Dialysis is a technology to help the patients remove certain toxins and wastes from body by a treatment machine. It can not prevent the creatinine level goes up. For your aunt’s case, there are many conditions can lead to her re- growth creatinine.

In your opinion what are the consequences and effects of high creatinine level.
renal-onlinedoctor 09-13 15:42:02
Generally speaking, the patients with high creatinine level will also have swelling, blood in urine, protein in urine, weakness, or even heart problems. Your aunt should lower the creatinine level as soon as possible.
Guest 09-13 15:43:12
What treatments do you suggest?
renal-onlinedoctor 09-13 15:43:33
I suggest you aunt to try Chinese medicine. It can help her not only lower the creatinine level, but also improve the kidney function. How about this, send the medical reports to me, and then I will reply you the detailed information about diets and treatments.
