8 Factors Drive Creatinine to Rise and Accelerate Kidney FailureTwo days ago, a patient left a message on our website: “Doctor, my creatinine level increases again. What causes it?” If you have the similar doubt, this article will be helpful for you.

The occurrence of high creatinine level means kidney function has begun to fail, and although the initial condition is not very serious, this step is undoubtedly a key point in the process of kidney failure.

Increased creatinine usually have 8 reasons:

(1) When patients with CKD have infections, including colds, pneumonia, intestinal infections, urinary tract infections, etc., they may experience increased serum creatinine in the short term.

(2) Due to relapse, oliguria, or even anuria, CKD patients may have acute real failure, resulting in increased serum creatinine levels.

(3) For patients with uncontrolled high blood pressure, and long-term moderate or massive proteinuria (24h urine protein is over 1g or 1.5g), their disease may progress slowly and lead to elevated creatinine level.

(4) Some drugs, but it can not be regarded as nephrotoxic drugs, such as ACEI or ARBs can make creatinine level rise, mainly in CKD patients with heavy edema or severe dehydration.

(5) Patients with pre-existing kidney disease, using drugs that damage the kidneys, can develop increased blood creatinine, which is even irreversible.

(6) When kidney patients do not pay attention to their diet, for example, eat too much protein, they can have high creatinine level temporarily. If they have high protein diet for long-term, they may have irreversible kidney damage.

(7) Dehydration (also known as hypovolemia), such as fever, excessive sweating, reduced water intake, blood concentration in the diuretic phase, and reduced renal blood flow, can result in increased creatinine.

(8) Fatigue, poor rest and inattention to the details of life can also cause transient rise in creatinine.

Currently, the following three treatment methods are mostly used to lower high creatinine level:

1. Take western medicine or Chinese patent medicine

Clinically, the commonly used anti-creatinine drugs include isit (western medicine) and niaoduqing (Chinese patent medicine). The treatment effect is the same, but it is better than no medication.

2. Special dialysis for creatinine -- colon dialysis

Colon dialysis is different from the familiar hemodialysis and abdominal dialysis, which belongs to the category of traditional Chinese medicine Enema Therapy. It is to lower creatinine level by colon detoxification, and its effect is better than the above anti-creatinine drugs.

3. Chinese medicine for high creatinine

Traditional Chinese medicine regards creatinine as "toxin". To lower creatinine level, attention should be paid on promoting qi to activate blood and promote your body’s detoxification ability, especially sweating and urination. There are differences in curative effect, and the key is to find a dialectical Chinese medicine. At the same time, we should also pay attention to the adjustment of diet and living habits, such as regular work and rest and high-quality low-protein diet.
