Can You Only Wait for Dialysis with Creatinine Over 500

Can You Only Wait for Dialysis with Creatinine Over 500For kidney patients, the most horrible thing may be the uremia. There's nothing more hopeless than watching creatinine levels rise and being told by your doctor that there's no way to treat it and that you'll have to wait for hemodialysis, and maybe even a "nice" reminder from some doctors that dialysis should be done as early as possible to preserve your last bit of kidney function.

In fact, not all kidney diseases progress to uremia, and not all people are treated with dialysis.

Can you only wait for dialysis with creatinine over 500? Her experience may tell you the answer.

Xiaoying is only 35 years old, but she has been with kidney disease for 6 years. The first time she felt anything physically unusual was when she noticed varying degrees of puffiness on her eyelids and both legs. But the edema became more severe day by day, and even the pressure on the leg was a pit. She just discovered the illness condition is very serious, so she went to a hospital for checkups at once, and the result was very bad. Her creatinine level was as high as 540 umol/L. She was diagnosed with Lupus Nephritis, and it has progressed into kidney failure.

This struck Xiaoying like a bolt from the blue, but what made her even more devastated was that the doctor told her directly that her disease could not be cured, and she had to undergo hemodialysis as soon as possible to save her life.

However, Xiaoying did not want to start dialysis at all, so she just ate some medications to maintain her condition. Once in a while, her friend told her our hospital, and she decided to have a try.

After learning her condition, we did not suggest her dialysis. On one hand, her creatinine level did not reach the standard of dialysis, because it was only 580 umol/L. On the other hand, her GFR was not very low.

In view of her condition, we adopted foot bath and physical therapy, which were featured by our hospital, together with western medicine treatment. After two months, we finally helped her realize her "wish" and pulled her back from the edge of dialysis without dialysis. Now her creatinine has dropped to 140moI/L, her urine volume has increased from 150 to 1000 ml, and her condition is basically stable.

In her words, “now I feel comfortable all over, I didn't sweat before, now I am sweating (detox) after treatment.”

The key to deciding whether or not to have dialysis is to look at these three points and see how many of them do you meet?

1. There are serious complications, including hyperkalemia, hyperphosphatemia, severe anemia, etc. These complications can accelerate the deterioration of the condition even more than uremia. Patients with these symptoms and creatinine exceeding 707 are usually recommended for dialysis, but for patients with more severe conditions, such as diabetic patients, creatinine more than 500 is recommended for dialysis in order to reduce the risk of complications.

2. Kidney patients between the ages of 4 and 70. Not all kidney patients are suitable for dialysis. For children who are too young or elderly patients, they cannot bear the side effects brought by dialysis. Therefore, dialysis is of little significance and there is no need to choose dialysis.

3. Acute progression of renal function. Some factors, such as drugs and infections can cause acute progression of kidney disease so as to cause rapid increase of serum creatinine level. To avoid increased creatinine level from speeding up kidney failure, dialysis can be done temporarily. When creatinine level goes down, dialysis can be stopped.

Now you know that not all kidney patients with creatinine over 500 need to do dialysis. For more information on high creatinine treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
