Is there any alternative therapy to the endless dialysis for kidney failure
High creatinine level and anemia are the common complications of patients with Kidney Failure. When you are diagnosed with Kidney Failure, your doctor may suggest with dialysis. Is there any alternative therapy to the endless dialysis for kidney failure patients?
High Creatinine Level 4.0
The creatinine level 4.0 is not extremely dangerous actually, but it indicates the decreasing renal function. Creatinine is a kind of macromolecule, which is produced by muscle metabolism. In normal condition, creatinine should be filtered out by kidneys. Thereby, once your high creatinine levels last for long, it indicates the kidney malfunction.
Dialysis is usually commonly used as a tool to eliminate the macromolecule, but there are also middle toxin and big one in the body. And dialysis cannot move them out.
To solve this problem, our hospital introduces various type of equipment to clear the blood. Each device has its own functions to eliminate the specific toxins in the body. The devices include plasma exchange, hemofiltration, Immunoadsorption, biological filtration etc. This series of blood purification techniques ensure all the toxins are solved properly and lower the toxic environment and working load to your impaired kidneys, which can reduce your high creatinine levels and earn enough time for your kidneys to repair.
Anemia is a common manifestation of patients with chronic renal failure and when the serum creatinine is higher than 4, anemia will occur. And it may worsen with the aggravation of renal function. The decrease of EPO generated by kidney; inhibitory action of toxins to bone marrow; short of red blood cells’ life; the insufficiency of iron, folic acid, protein; lose blood caused by dialysis; hyperparathyroidism and so on.
All of the above reasons can contribute to the occurrence of renal anemia. Patients usually apply the injection of EPO, but it will make effects in two weeks.
To the Chinese Medicine, you can see the effects in first 2~4 weeks at most. Most importantly, the Chinese Medicine mainly for recovering the kidney's function of secreting EPO in stead of treating symptoms.
