What Stage of CKD It Is When Creatinine Level is 4.5

What Stage of CKD It Is When Creatinine Level is 4.5

CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease) is marked by the progressive loose of kidney function and it is totally divided into 5 stages. Kidney is in charge of removing creatinine in the blood, so with the decline of kidney function, serum creatinine level becomes higher and higher. Creatinine level 4.5 is much higher than the normal range of 0.5-1.3mg/dL and it indicates serious kidney damage. Well, what stage of CKD it is when creatinine level is 4.5?

Serum creatinine level is an indicator of kidney condition and based on clinical studies, creatinine level in blood becomes higher than normal range when about a half of kidney function is impaired. Therefore, high creatinine level 4.5 implies illness is in advanced stage, at least stage 4 or even stage 5. In medicine, CKD is divided into 5 stages according to GFR (Glomerular Filtration Rate) which describe the flow rate of filtered fluid through kidney. In CKD stage 4, GFR is in the range of 15-29 and in such a case, due to severely impaired kidney function, patients always experience various physical discomforts like nausea, vomiting, skin itching, fatigue and dizziness. If no treatment is given to stop illness progression, CKD stage 4 progresses to stage 5, in which GFR is lower than 15. Dialysis or kidney transplant is suggested under such a condition, and it is a must to do dialysis or kidney transplant generally when GFR is as low as 10. At that time, creatinine level is usually higher than 5.

Creatinine level 4.5 is a very high level, although it is not high enough to require dialysis or kidney transplant. Healthy kidneys help to cleanse blood by eliminating harmful substances. Creatinine is one of the wastes that need to be removed by kidney and when kidneys can not work well to eliminate creatinine, other harmful substances can not be removed as well. Therefore, high creatinine level also implies high levels of toxins in the blood, which is very life-threatening.

Although creatinine level 4.5 is very high, there is natural way to reduce it to a good level. In China, high creatinine level is treated by strengthening kidney. We know creatinine build up in blood due to impaired kidney function, so when kidney function is improved, serum creatinine level is reduced naturally. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is the most commonly used herbal treatment in China. it is herb-based, but all the herbs are used externally, so no side effects are caused during the whole treatment effects. Besides, to help patients get the best treatment effects in the shortest time, some other therapies like Cycle Therapy, Acupuncture, Medicated Bath and Enema are applied as adjuvant treatment. With this systematic treatment, not only high creatinine level 4.5 can be reduce down to the normal range, CKD stage 4 or 5 also can be reversed successfully.
