Topics: CKD High Creatinine Level High Creatinine Level Causes

Details: I am currently undergoing chemotherapy which has caused renal damage. My creatinine level is 147 and my eGFR is 33. What should I do?

Expert Answer

Some chemotherapy drugs indeed can cause damage to the kidneys, and whether or not the chemotherapy drug can cause kidney damage is based on:

- The dosage of the chemotherapy drug

- Whether the person has always had kidney disease

- If some other medications that can cause kidney damage are used

- The type of chemotherapy drug such as cisplatin, carboplatin and methotrexate

From your description, we can know your kidneys have been damaged by chemotherapy. In this case, you should take effective treatments to protect your kidneys.

Here, there are several methods that can help lower high creatinine level and repair damaged kidney cells, since eGFR 33 indicates kidney disease has progressed into stage 3. If still left uncontrolled, it will aggravate into stage 4 or end stage easily.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Immunotherapy and Clear Blood Pollution Therapy are three therapies that can help treat kidney damage effectively. However, which therapy is the best choice, it should depend on patients’ illness condition. Check with the doctor online to determine a best treatment plan.
