Creatinine increase is a symptom of kidney damage. Chinese medicine choose suitable treatment plan for kidney dysfunction and high creatinine level, based on the cause of kidney damage and condition of kidney damage. Starting with the cause of high creatinine level, progress of kidney damage can be prevented and damaged kidney lesions can be repaired to improve kidney function. Creatinine level will naturally come down with improved kidney function.
Creatinine is a kind of metabolic waste, mainly produced with muscle metabolism. 99% of creatinine is discharged via kidneys. Therefore, creatinine increase usually indicates that glomerular filtration rate reduced and kidney function reduced.
To find method for lowering creatinine for Chinese medicine, we must first make sure the cause of increasing creatinine. We need firstly make sure whether increasing creatinine level is caused by acute or chronic kidney damage. We can estimate the kidney condition by blood routine test and index of calcium, phosphorus, parathyroid hormone together with colour ultrasound of kidneys. Treatment method differs according to different causes and creatinine levels.
Traditional Chinese medicine works leading and western medicine as a supplement in reducing creatinine level. While treating kidney, it must be aware that the kidneys connect with other organs in the body. Treating from overall coordination, repairing vital parts, spleen and kidney, activating blood circulation to dissipate stasis, overall conditioning body environment can improve kidney function, make the viscera together with skin to take part in discharging toxins in emergency compensatory and protect the undamaged nephrons,thus repairing and activating kidney function.
And with the deep conditioning of Chinese medicine, effective glomerular perfusion will be increased and pressure in glomerular is also decreased, thus lowering the high perfusion condition of glomerular and the process of glomerular induration can be delayed and controlled.
For patients suffering from serious kidney damage,the frequency of kidney dialysis can be reduced under the cooperation of Chinese medicine therapies to reduce sufferings and treatment cost.
During treatment of high creatinine level and kidney dysfunction, creatinine is a waste during body metabolism which is mainly discharged via kidney. Regarding lower creatinine level, the first step is treatment of kidney lesions to recover kidney function timely. After the recovery of kidney metabolism, creatinine level will naturally be reduced and no relapse.
