Hello, doctor. I am a patient with stage 4 kidney disease. Now I am suffering from creatinine 5.4. Is that a sign of dialysis?
Hi, Glad to receive your email. First you should know that dialysis is the medical method for kidney disease, especially for kidney failure. When kidneys have problems and cannot sustain the normal life, dialysis will be used in most countries. It can help kidneys discharge some of the toxins, extra water as well as electrolyte in blood. Creatinine 5.4 is a sign of kidney damage, but it is not definitely a sign of dialysis. Creatinine 5.4 is indeed higher than the normal level, which is 0.5-1.2mg/dl. But it does not indicate it’s time to do dialysis. Whether you should start dialysis or not depends on your own overall health condition. If you are troubled by serious problems, such as nausea, vomit, muscle cramps, heavy swelling, pulmonary edema, etc, dialysis is needed. But if you do not have obvious symptoms, it can be delayed.
However, there is another way to avoid dialysis as much as possible. That is the natural treatment---Hot Compress Therapy. This therapy can help you recover the original qi and regain kidney function. So the high creatinine level will be lowered naturally. If you are interested in this therapy, you can send me back to firstname.lastname@example.org for further consultation.
