High creatinine level 5.6 means kidney problem is in end stage. High creatinine level is resulted from impaired kidney function, and in such a serious condition, it is hard to bring illness under control with a simple medicine. Kidney failure is always accompanied with a series of problems like proteinuria and high blood pressure. In such a case, if we want to bring illness under control and stop further elevation of creatinine level, a systematic treatment is needed.

This systematic treatment is composed of:

-tight control of all the symptoms like proteinuria and high blood pressure

Although these problems are resulted from kidney damages, if not controlled tightly, in turn, they will further damage kidney. Therefore, tight control of them is very important. This helps to slow down illness progression.

-repairing of injured kidney tissues

In a damaged kidney, there are three groups of kidney tissues: healthy kidney tissues, injured kidney tissues and dead kidney tissues. Dead kidney tissues can not be brought back to life any more, but for injured kidney tissues, there is still chance to get them repaired. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a very effective treatment to repair injured kidney tissues and by repairing them, kidney function can be improved greatly.

-a well-planed diet

When serum creatinine level becomes very high, a kidney-friendly diet is also necessary. This refers to low-salt diet, proper protein intake, low-potassium intake and high calcium intake. Also, fluid limitation is needed when there is welling.

Creatinine level 5.6 is very high and it indicates kidney failure, but it does not mean dialysis is the only solution. Dialysis actually is not a treatment for kidney failure and high creatinine level, but a renal replacement method. It is able to reduce creatinine level, because it replace failed kidneys filter blood. But the problem is it can not repair kidney damages at all, so after stop dialysis, serum creatinine level becomes higher again.
