High Serum Potassium 5.9 and Phosphorus 6.8 for Diabetics

Topics: Diabetic Nephropathy

Details: I am a diabetic suffering from CKD. My creatinine level is 5.4 mg/dl, serum potassium 5.9, serum phosphors 6.8, and calcium 1.15. Now, I am only taking medicines to control my diabetes and hypertension. How to lower my potassium and phosphorus?

Expert Answer

With the change of eating habit and lifestyle, diabetes becomes one common disease. If blood sugar is uncontrolled very well, it will attack many other organs and systems. Normally, kidneys are responsible for eliminating creatine, extra potassium and extra phosphorus from the body.

When kidneys are damaged by high blood sugar, they are unable to do their work normally. Then, creatinine, potassium and phosphorus will build up in the blood. The build up of phosphorus can pull calcium out of the bone. Then, low calcium level occurs easily.

To deal with these problems, the key is to control blood sugar and repair damaged kidney cells. There are many medicines both in western medicine and Chinese medicines that can help lower high blood sugar. For example, insulin and Tang Yikang just has this effect. Then, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is taken to increase the blood flow into kidneys and prompt the self-curative ability of damaged kidney cells. Therefore, kidney cells can get recovery gradually.

As long as kidneys can come back to work and blood sugar is under control, high creatinine level, high serum potassium and phosphorus will decline naturally. To learn more about these treatments, you can leave a message to
