High Creatinine in Diabetic Nephropathy: What to Do
The increase of creatinine means that Diabetes leads to the damage of the kidney, which is the pathological symptom of the progressive aggravation of Diabetic Nephropathy. At the same time, the increase of creatinine is also the signal to remind patients of active treatment. Then how to treat high creatinine for diabetics?
Diabetic Nephropathy is one of the most common complications of diabetes mellitus. Increased serum creatinine in diabetic nephropathy is a common clinical symptom in the later stage of patients, and the increase of creatinine is caused by the decreased drainage and detoxia of the kidney due to the replacement of normal nephrons by fibrous tissue.
Dialysis for high creatinine in Diabetic Nephropathy
For the treatment of diabetic nephropathy with increased serum creatinine, the conventional treatment is dialysis in western medicine. Dialysis can play the role of artificial kidney, but it is not aimed at the treatment of kidney. Even if dialysis is used, it also needs to protect renal function at the same time. Because the longer dialysis time is, the more renal function will gradually be lost. Therefore, dialysis can not always be relied on. It is suggested that dialysis should be accompanied by the systematic treatment of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to further improve the detoxification ability of renal inherent cells, control the progress of the illness from pathology, lest appear more complications.
Chinese Medicine Treatment for diabetic nephropathy
Systematic TCM treatment of diabetic nephropathy can not only remove the immune complexes and pathological tissues that cause damage to the glomerular basement membrane, but also repair the glomerular basement membrane. According to the causes of blood creatinine production, as long as the damaged basement membrane is repaired, the renal structure is changed and the glomerular filtration area is expanded, the serum creatinine will gradually decline, but this needs a process.
In the process of traditional Chinese medicine treatment, some health care work should be done.
For example: prevent a cold, control diet and mood, do not work hard, control blood pressure, blood sugar and so on. Only in this way can the creatinine go down. And only when the treatment and maintenance are grasped together can better protect the function of the kidney.
Once diabetic nephropathy patients have increased serum creatinine, it will indicate that their kidneys have appeared serious damage. This is a red flag for diabetic nephropathy. Therefore, it needs high attention. For the treatment of diabetic nephropathy, the key is to grasp the root. Creatinine is the external manifestation of kidney damage, so the focus of treatment is to repair the damaged kidney tissue.
