Do I Still Need to Take Ketosteril with Creatinine 6.67

Topics: High Creatinine Level High Creatinine Level Treatment

Details: I have Chronic Kidney Disease and my creatinine level is 6.67 mg/dl. Do you think I still need to take ketosteril?

Expert Answer

Ketosteril is one common medication that is used to lower high creatinine level for kidney disease patients. Generally, it is recommended when patients’ glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is less than 25ml/min. In order to strengthen the therapeutic effect of this medicine, patients are suggested to follow a low-protein diet plan, and their daily intake of protein should be 40g or less.

Creatinine 6.67 usually indicates patients’ kidney disease has progressed into end stage. In this condition, you can still take ketosteril. However, if you also have some severe complications, you may need to accept Dialysis, Blood Purification or other systemic therapies. (According to your illness condition, you can consult the Doctor online or leave a message below to choose correct treatment plan.)

Since your kidneys are damaged, you should also take some therapies to repair your impaired kidney cells. Only if your kidneys can do their work relatively normally, you can get rid of these medications and dialysis successfully. Only depending on your creatinine level, it is hard to determine whether you can take ketosteril or not. To give you more effective treatments, we need to know more about your medical condition.
