Does Creatinine 10.6 Mean End Stage CKD

Posted: by Dr.Zhao      Time: 2015-02-16 08:09

Topics: High Creatinine Level ESRD Symptoms

Details: My mother has hypertension for 15 years, and now her blood test shows creatinine level 10.6mg/dl. Her doctor suggests dialysis. Does creatinine 10.6 mean Stage 5 CKD?

Expert Answer

Although creatinine level is not as reliable as glomerular filtration rate to divide chronic kidney disease, patients can still estimate their kidney function level based on creatinine level. In China, doctors classify chronic kidney failure into four stages. When serum creatinine level is higher than 8.0mg/dl, it indicates patients' kidney disease has progressed into uremic stage.

Creatinine 10.6 is quite higher than 8.0mg/dl, so your mother's kidney disease is more likely to progress into end stage. This is why the doctor suggests your mother to begin dialysis.

However, it doesn't mean dialysis is the best treatment for your mother. If she still has certain kidney function and urine, she can try some alternative therapies. For example, Clear Blood Pollution Therapy is one good treatment for patients with high creatinine level and low kidney function level. This is because this therapy can not only cleanse the polluted blood but also repair impaired kidney cells and rebuild kidney structure.

Compared with dialysis, Clear Blood Pollution Therapy has fewer side effects and more therapeutic effects. If you are interested about this therapy, you can ask help from the online service.
