Expert Answer


Firstly, I will help you analyze your illness condition, so that you know well about your current kidney condition, and then I will give you some individual suggestions. If you have any further questions, please email

First of all, your creatinine level 5.2 indicates you are in kidney failure stage. Serum creatinine level increases when about a half of kidney function is impaired. Normal creatinine level should be in the range of 0.5-1.3mg/dL. Creatinine 5.2 is a very high level, which means kidneys have been severely damaged.

Besides, your symptoms of swelling in legs, ankles and feet also indicates your kidneys are working badly. Kidney is the natural filter of our body. While blood flow through kidney, unwanted fluid is removed out of the body as urine. Swelling means your kidneys can not do this job well. If not treated effectively and timely, swelling will finally spread to the whole body.

Based on your illness condition, the followings are the suggestions:

-Limit fluid intake

This helps to reduce your kidney burden and alleviate swelling your legs, ankles and feet.

-A low-salt diet

Salt is rich in sodium and high-salt diet not only increase desire for fluid, but also trigger high blood pressure which is very harmful for kidney.

-High quality protein

Protein is the basic of life, but considering your illness condition, you need to ingest some high quality protein which can provide our body with necessary amino acid and meanwhile add less burden on kidney. High quality protein can be found in lean meat, egg white, fish and milk.

-Strengthen your kidney

Healthy kidneys help to remove unwanted fluid and excess creatinine out of the body, so by strengthening your kidney, your creatinine 5.2 can be reduced to a low level and also your swelling can be eliminated successfully. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a good treatment option for you. It is effective and meanwhile harmless.

All in all, if you want to better your condition, you need to start from increasing kidney function, developing kidney-friendly diet and having a daily care.
