Hemodialysis is a process of purifying the blood of a person whose kidneys are not functioning normally. It really can reduce her creatinine level after doing first dialysis. But hemodialysis is not a radical treatment for elevated creatinine level because it can not repair kidney damage and improve renal function. Creatinine is normally excreted out by kidneys. However, when kidneys are damaged, they fail to do this job so creatinine will accumulate in your body. Thus, if you want to lower high creatinine level radically, you should restore kidney damage and improve renal function. Dialysis is only a renal replacement therapy and fails to improve kidney function. This is the reason why many patients experience fluctuating creatinine level after dialysis.

Dialysis is not the root treatment for high creatinine level 6.7. Besides, hemodialysis can also cause some side effects including low blood pressure, fatigue, chest pain, leg cramps, nausea and headaches. What’s worse, patients on hemodialysis may expose circulatory system to microbes, which can lead to bacteremia, an infection affecting the heart valves. Bleeding may also occur.

Patients really want to avoid hemodialysis due to various side effects. Well then, is there any alternative to dialysis?

Yes, if you want to avoid dialysis, you must repair impaired kidney tissues and improve kidney function. In a damaged kidney, there are three types of kidney cells- healthy ones, injured ones and dead ones. We can do nothing for dead ones but we can repair injured kidney cells. We recommend a series of Chinese medicine treatments such as Medicated Bath, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Mixture, Medicinal Soup, Moxibustion Therapy, Steaming Therapy, Steaming Therapy and Circle Therapy, etc. According to specific condition, we will make a treatment plan. These therapies can help expand blood vessels, improve blood circulation, degrade extracellular matrix, provide nutrients and prevent inflammation,etc. All these help improve renal function. As long as kidney function is improved, high creatinine level 6.7 will be reduced radically. Also it is possible for the patient to avoid dialysis or kidney transplant.

Can hemodialysis reduce high creatinine level 6.7? Yes, it can lower high creatinine level to some extent. But if you wanna get a radical result, you should repair your kidney damage and improve your own kidney function.
