Can Creatinine 8.4 Be Normalized by Medicine

Time:  2014-02-05 01:06

Can Creatinine 8.4 Be Normalized by MedicineCan creatinine 8.4 be normalized by medicine? Kidney failure patients are eager to bring their serum creatinine level to the normal range 0.5-1.3mg/dL, because creatinine level in blood is an indicator that helps to decide whether dialysis is needed for a kidney disease patient.

Creatinine level 8.4 is several times higher than the reference value, so it is a very dangerous condition. In medicine, serum creatinine level can be used to reflect kidney condition, as kidney is responsible for filtering blood and excreting excess creatinine in blood. Creatinine is one of the wastes produced in the body and elevation of creatinine level always implies kidneys can not filter blood successfully. Under such a condition, not only creatinine, but also many other wastes like urea nitrogen will build up in the blood. According to clinical studies, serum creatinine level not increase until a half of kidney function is impaired. Therefore, high creatinine level in blood means serious kidney problem.

Dialysis is usually suggested when creatinine level increases to 8.4 such a high level; however, in some cases, kidney failure patients do not start dialysis until their life is really threatened. Dialysis is the most commonly used method to purify blood by kidney failure patients. After dialysis, creatinine 8.4 can be lowered down successfully, but as it can not restore kidney function, serum creatinine level increases again after dialysis. Therefore, once kidney failure patients choose dialysis to sustain their life, they generally need to do it regularly.

Actually, the real cause of creatinine 8.4 is impairment of kidney function, so if we can not get creatinine level reduced fundamentally, we must repair kidney damages. In an affected kidney, there are healthy, injured and necrotic kidney intrinsic cells. For necrotic kidney intrinsic cells, they are dead and have lost all their working ability. And as of now there is no such a medicine that can revive kidney cells. However, there are medicines that have been proven to be able to repair injured kidney intrinsic cells. We know kidney works through a group of kidney intrinsic cells such as glomerular mesangial cell, glomeular epithelial cell and renal tubular cell and so on. When kidney intrinsic cells are injured and not be repaired within a limited time, kidney function decreases. Therefore, by repairing injured kidney intrinsic cells, kidney function can be improved effectively. Healthy kidney helps to remove excess creatinine out of the body, so by repairing injured kidney intrinsic cells, kidney function can be restored to some extent and creatinine 8.4 can be lowered down successfully. Additional, even though it can not be normalized completely, it can be lowered down to the level that allows patients to keep being alive without dialysis.
