How Does Dialysis Affect Creatinine Level

How Does Dialysis Affect Creatinine LevelIn general condition, most patients may be advised to undergo dialysis when creatinine level elevates to 5mg/dl or higher. Then, how does dialysis affect creatinine level?

As we all know, normal levels of creatinine are 0.6-1.2mg/dl for male and 0.5-1.1mg/dl for female. When your creatinine level is beyond this range, it indicates that your kidneys have been damaged and can not work normally. This condition usually causes too much toxins in the blood and it may cause high creatinine level, high BUN level, etc. Also toxins deposition may induce other symptoms, such as proteinuria, vomiting, urine changes etc. Once your creatinine level is higher than 5 mg/dl, dialysis is likely to be recommended by your doctor firstly.

There is no doubt that dialysis can lower creatinine level. There are two types of dialysis: hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. Both types can filter toxins from our body. Dialysis makes a difference through four aspects:

1. Removing wastes, extra salt and water to prevent them building up in our body.

2. Eliminating small molecule substance such as urea.

3. Keeping a safe level of minerals in your body such as phosphorus, potassium and sodium.

4. Cleaning toxins.

5. Purifying blood.

Dialysis does work as renal replacement which can help filter waste products to alleviate symptoms and lower high creatinine levels. However, in fact, dialysis has some disadvantages.

Dialysis can not repair damaged renal tissues from the root. What’s more, during the period of dialysis, you may have some discomforts. For example, some patients may have a drop in their blood pressure. If this happens, patients may feel sick to their stomach and have a headache or cramps. Another disadvantage of dialysis is that your diet and the amount of fluid you drink need to be strictly restricted. Besides, once patients stop undergoing dialysis casually, life-threatening complications may occur.

All in all, dialysis can reduce high creatinine level to some extent, but it can not be ignored that dialysis does have some shortcomings.

If you are a patient with high creatinine level and want to avoid dialysis, effective treatment plays an important role. According to clinical practices, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy has made significant success for treating kidney disease and lower high creatinine level.
