Topics: High Creatinine Level GFR

Details: My mother has 424umol/L creatinine as per last blood test , do you think that we can enhanced the kidneys function. please let me know if you need the medical report just to help you in.

Expert Answer

I read the test reports which was done in May. The condition at that time was already very serious. Though her serum creatinine was not dangerously high, her GFR was only 17ml/min, which suggests her disease was in stage 4. Besides, her hemoglobin was low, so her disease is surely chronic kidney disease. As her serum creatinine increased so much, I think her disease has progressed into stage 5 until now. Please don't worry. The disease is still reversible.

There must be some acute progressing factor. I found that her random blood sugar was high. Does she have Diabetes? If so, for how many years? Did the doctor tell you the primary cause of her kidney damage? Apart from the blood test, what other tests has she done? Is there protein in urine? What's the size of her both kidneys now? We have to see whether her kidneys have shrunk. If you have her urine test and scan of kidneys, please send to us also.

Generally, for a kidney patients with High Creatinine Level 424umol/L and GFR 17, the treatment options can be dialysis, kidney transplant, Chinese herbal medicine and immunotherapy. However, as I have no accurate diagnosis about your mother’s condition, please allow me give you my suggestions about treatment, after I receive her more detailed medical reports.
