Treatment For Lowering Creatinine Levels In The Blood?
Good night,. my parents were diagnosed with CKD on HD, and now his creatinium has reached 9 in the normal range and is required to (HD). is there any other way besides (Hd)? and now I’m still waiting for (Hd) where I work, is there any other treatment to lower the creatinium number so it doesn’t get worse? I couldn’t bear to see my parents getting more and more sick. because the oral medication such as CaCO3 kalitake and NaBic can’t completely reduce the creatinium and potassium. please help for a handler solution that can be resolved while still waiting (Hd). thank you.
Dear Raden Arif,
Kidney is one organ that has an important function for a person's body. The kidneys are in charge of processing waste from the body's metabolism and then excreted through the process of urination. Without a kidney, of course, waste can accumulate in the blood, and cause "poisoning" in many organs, including the brain. Kidney failure is a term used when the kidneys are no longer able to process these wastes properly, so that when the blood is examined, the levels of wastes namely urea and creatinine in the blood increase. At a certain stage, Kidney Replacement Therapy or often also called hemodialysis is needed, where the blood is cleaned with a certain tool, so that waste is disposed of. Unfortunately, these facilities are often limited by lack of resources, so patients have to wait. Some health facilities use plasmapheresis alternatives to filter red blood cells from patients and clean them and then return them to the patient. However, plasmapheresis generally can only be used in certain patients, and the decision to use plasmapheresis is entirely dependent on the doctor who examines the patient, whether the patient can still benefit from this procedure. We encourage you to consult again about your parents' condition to the doctor concerned, to find out what steps can be taken for the good of the patient. Here we attach an article about hemodialysis. Hope it is useful.
