Stage 4 Kidney Failure: How to Lower Creatinine 5.3 and High Blood Pressure
Q: I was diagnosed with stage 4 kidney failure, creatinine 5.3 and high blood pressure.What can I do ? Must I wait for dialysis or a kidney transplant?
A: Kidneys are responsible for filtering waste products and toxins out of the blood. Meanwhile, they can help regulate blood pressure. However, in stage 4 kidney failure, kidneys have been impaired seriously and they can not function adequately. Over time, more and more waste products like creatinine will build up in the kidneys, resulting high creatinine level.
Creatinine(mainly serum creatinine), a major index to measure kidney function. Normally, the creatinine level is 0.6-1.2mg/dl for men and 0.5-1.1mg/dl for women. Given your situation, creatinine 5.3 is much higher than the normal range.
Normally, to lower high blood pressure, anti-hypertensive drugs including ACEI, ARBs, etc can be used. And the blood pressure should be controlled within 130/80mm Hg.
After careful study, nephrologists at our Peking Tung Shin Tang Chinese Medical Hospital recommend people with both blood-purification technique and Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy.
To create a favorable internal environment, blood-purification technique including plasma exchange, hemodialysis, etc are needed. In this way, toxins and wastes in the blood can be removed fully.
To treat the above-mentioned symptoms fundamentally, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can be regarded as a prefect choice. Through external application, active substances of the herbs can effect on the renal area directly. By dilating blood vessels, imp Besides, these herbs can dilate the blood vessels, ameliorating the ischemia and anoxic state in kidneys, not only hypertension will be lowered but also extra creatinine will be excreted out of the body.
