Hi, all of your these test numbers are abnormal, which means your kidney function has been severely damaged, but your illness condition is not severe enough to require dialysis. Creatinine level 321, urea 25 and potassium 5.8 are high. However, hemoglobin 10 is low. If we want to normalize the medical indexes and avoid dialysis successfully, we need to improve kidney function and at least stop further decline of kidney function. However, if we fail to do so, dialysis or kidney transplant might be needed in near future.

Besides, dialysis is also called artificial kidney in some areas. It is called so because it is applied to replace damaged kidney to cleanse blood, so as to maintain the safety of internal environment and thus to avoid further health tissues.

For your case, I can give you some suggestions to help you avoid dialysis. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us by leaving message to chinakidneytherapy@gmail.com and also you can contact our online doctor to get instant help.

-first of all, you need to control your blood pressure in normal range, because persistent high blood pressure will damage kidney and accelerate illness progression.

-also you need to repair damaged kidney structure and strengthen your kidney. This is the key point to reduce high creatinine level 321 and urea 25. Many Chinese medicines can be applied to promote kidney health like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Mai Kang Mixture, Foot Bath and accupuncture.

-increase your hemoglobin level 10 to a higher level. Normal hemoglobin level for adults should be in the range of 12-17gm/dL. Low hemoglobin level is not only bad for kidney, but also causes many physical discomforts like tiredness, pale look and even shortness of breath.

-reduce your potassium level 5.8 to a lower level, and this will help to reduce your risk for heart problems.

-avoid foods bad for your kidney. According to the numbers you provide, low-salt diet, low-potassium diet, high-iron diet and low-protein diet are recommended.

All in all, if you want to avoid dialysis, you must do something to improve your kidney function. Successful improvement of renal function not only prevents dialysis, but also normalize your test numbers. Also, the earlier you take treatment, the better.
