What Serum Creatinine 6.5 Mean and Alternative Therapy to Dialysis

Q: Hi, I have high creatinine 6.5mg/dl. Is there any alternative opinion instead of dialysis? I just got my test result today. My doctor suggested Dialysis, but I think it should be the last choice for me. John.

A: John, thank you for your inquiry. YES, you are right, dialysis may not always the first and only choice for high creatinine levels. Let me to answer your first question:

What does serum creatinine 6.5 mean?

Creatinine is the waste products in the body. And in normal condition, it is removed by kidneys. When kidneys are diseased, it will build up in the blood, causing various sickness. This is why high creatinine level is the indicator of kidney damage. The higher it is, the poor the kidney is. In order to distinguish how severe the kidney damage is, experts make the kidney damage into 5 stages.

CKD stages stage 1 stage 2 stage 3 stage 4 stage 5
Serum Creatinine  <1.6mg/dl 1.6-2.0mg/dl 2.1-5.0mg/dl 5.1-7.9mg/dl >8.0mg/dl

From the chart, your condition belongs to CKD stage 4. Most of cases in this stage are Kidney Failure. If uncontrolled, it can develop into end stage of kidney disease gradually. In the end stage, the Dialysis or Kidney Transplant will be the only choice.

Is there any alternative therapy to Dialysis?

I suggest you Immunotherapy. Immunotherapy is a new biological treatment for Kidney Disease. More than 95% of kidney diseases result from immune system disorder.

When immune system cannot work well, the virus will build up in the body and when it deposits on the kidney tissues, the renal cells will be affected and damaged gradually.

Immunotherapy is a systemic therapy which can help repair the damaged kidney tissues and improve renal self-cure. Besides, it helps remove the virus that builds up in the body and in the kidneys by using various Blood Purification techniques, such as Plasma Exchange, hemoperfusion etc.

More important, it helps prevent the relapse of Kidney Failure, for it can rebuild a immune system and use the new immune system to fight against the kidney disease. As immune disorder is root cause, new immune system establishment will prevent the easy relapse caused by cold or infections.

Immunotherapy can be applied into most Kidney Disease cases. However, whether it is a perfect therapy for you, it relates to your own conditions. Leave details of your condition and we are glad to offer you a reply very soon.
