Leg Swelling, Creatinine 3 and 10 Years’ Diabetes

Topics: Diabetes Diabetes Symptoms

Details: My father has diabetes for 10 years. Now, his creatinine level is 3 mg/dl, and he has leg swelling. What can we do to improve his condition?

Expert Answer

If untreated effectively, 10 years’ diabetes will cause kidney damage easily. Normally, creatinine in the blood is 0.5~1.2mg/dl. Creatinine 3 is much higher than the normal value, so it means patient’s kidneys have been damaged severely.

Leg swelling indicates extra fluid collects in the legs. It can be caused by fluid retention and protein leakage. In severe cases, patients’ skin in the leg may become black. In view of this, you father needs to take some therapies to manage these diabetes-related complications and protect his kidneys.

For Diabetic Nephropathy patients, we would like to recommend Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and Clear Blood Pollution Therapy.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can help repair impaired kidney cells and regulate the internal environment. Through increasing glomerular filtration rate, it can also help ease swelling and lower high creatinine 3.0 mg/dl.

Clear Blood Pollution Therapy is used to cleanse the polluted blood and nourish kidneys. Generally, after about two weeks, patients can find obvious therapeutic effects. Then, their overall health condition will be managed very well.
