When kidney disease develops to the stage of renal insufficiency, serum creatinine rises, and it is generally thought that more than 700 μ moI/L of serum creatinine is needed for dialysis. If not, how to reduce creatinine?
Creatinine is the production of muscle metabolism, whether it's muscle consumption caused by exercise or muscle digestion brought about by diet, which produces a lot of creatinine. And in the process of conversion from primary urine to urine, it is not reabsorbed by renal tubules, but is excreted with urine.
When nephropathy occurs, if glomerular damage is more serious, creatinine cannot be filtered normally and will return to the blood before it rises. It should be noted that creatinine is not completely metabolized through urine. A small portion is excreted through stool and sweat.
Besides dialysis, how can we reduce creatinine? The first method is to reduce creatinine production, by reducing eating meat and reducing the amount of exercise methods, can effectively reduce creatinine production. The answer is absolutely not, because exercise produces a lot of creatinine, which in itself can lead to a sharp increase in creatinine, which can lead to strong azotemia.
The second approach is to increase creatinine excretion, which can be achieved through defecation and sweating, although it is no longer possible to expel creatinine from the urine. So for those with renal failure below 500 μ moI/L of serum creatinine, Can pass colon dialysis (Chinese medicine enema, fumigation, foot bath and other methods to help expel creatinine, although not much, but can be done for a long time, so the overall effect is good.
The third way is to excrete creatinine through drugs, currently mainly using carbon tablets and proprietary Chinese medicine, slightly lower than the second, so can be used in combination.
Reducing creatinine is not the ultimate goal. The ultimate goal is to protect the remaining renal function. Western medicine can effectively protect the residual renal cells and maintain the existing renal function by combining the inhibition of inflammation with the improvement of ischemia and hypoxia in traditional Chinese medicine. Keep the condition stable for a long time, and achieve the goal of treatment.
