Hi, if your kidney problem is resulted from your Diabetes, you need to consider dialysis now, because diabetics need to start dialysis earlier than people who have kidney problem resulted from other illnesses. You said your creatinine level is 5, which is very high and usually means kidney failure, so do you have any discomforts like skin itching and pulmonary edema? All these problems indicate dangerous condition, so please take treatment as soon as possible if you are facing these problems.

Besides, you can delay dialysis for some time if you have no physical discomforts, but one thing you need to understand is dialysis is used to replace failed kidneys to cleanse blood, so as to protect internal organs from being damaged by the toxins that should have been removed by healthy kidney. Therefore, if you do not take effective treatment to improve your kidney function now, dialysis is needed sooner or later.

For people with completely failed kidney, there is no way to improve kidney function, but for these who still have some healthy kidney function, there is chance to better kidney, so as to help patients stay far away from dialysis. For people with diabetic kidney disease, but who still have good urine output, they can try Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Immunotherapy and Blood Pollution Therapy, which are the characteristic treatments of our hospital. They are not a simple herb or an oral medicine, but a systematic treatment method. Different patients might receive different treatment effects from these treatment methods due to the difference of their physical condition. Therefore, in our hospital-Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease, before making treatment plan, nephrologists need to have an overall understanding about patient’s physical condition.

Lastly, you said you have been diabetic 18 years and as of now creatinine level is 5. The information you provide is limited. You can tell us more and then leave your contact information to us. We will make detailed treatment plan for your reference according to your illness condition.
