Higher creatinine level signifys that kidneys are already damaged and dialysis is often required. This condition could be avoided by improving the kidney function. But once kidney are already damaged, a patient should follow some medical recommendation to lower creatinine level. There are some natural ways to lower creatinine level which will be tackled later.
Normal creatinine level for men is 44-133umol/L, for women it is 70-108umol/L. When serum creatinine is higher than 133 and if this condition lasts for long time, it means kidneys are damaged.
When creatinine is higher than 451, kidney failure develops and dialysis will be recommended by the doctor. For those that have high creatinine level as 800, they may have already begun dialysis, but that is not definite. If patients have no obvious discomforts or complications they can not have dialysis until creatinine is higher than 1000.
Dialysis can definitely lower high creatinine level of 800mmol/l, but it is not natural and has to be taken for several times each week or creatinine will once again become high or even higher than before because creatinine will be generated at a constant rate in the muscles and the failed kidneys can not remove it efficiently from the blood as it is supposed to. As an artificial kidney, dialysis will be taken to help remove excessive creatinine from the patient’s body.
When creatinine is lowered after dialysis and the complications are brought under control and patients’ illness conditions are stabilized, some natural ways can help further lower the creatinine and prevent further increase of creatinine level by repairing renal filtrations system, cleansing kidneys and improving kidney functions.
The following are some natural ways to lower creatinine level and protect kidney functions.
There are many natural Chinese herbs that can help lower creatinine such as nettle leaf tea, dandelion root, cinnamon, salvia, Siberian ginseng, etc. Along with low-sodium, low-potassium, low-phosphorus, low-protein diets, high creatinine can be controlled or at least its increase rate will be much slowed down.
Micro-Chinese medicine osmotherapy
It is an external application of Chinese medicines without causing any injuries or pains to the patients. It is natural, safe and comfortable. It has the functions of vasodilation, anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation, degradation of extracellular matrix so as to alleviate renal damages.
