End stage renal disease (ESRD) can cause kidney function to decline seriously. As kidneys are unable to eliminate phosphorus and creatinine from the body, patients may have high phosphorus or creatinine levels. How to manage these two problems for ESRD patients?
How to lower high phosphorus and creatinine levels for ESRD patients?
If both patients’ phosphorus and creatinine levels are too high, ESRD patients will be suggested to begin dialysis, peritoneal dialysis or hemodialysis. It can replace impaired kidneys to filter blood and remove waste products and toxins including phosphorus and creatinine. However, dialysis may cause some side effects such as low blood pressure, muscle cramps, leg pain, constipation, and so on.
To avoid these side effects and complications, patients can try Blood Purification. According to patients’ illness condition, doctors will choose correct method of blood purification to cleanse patients’ blood and ease patients’ complications easily. Compared with conventional dialysis, Blood Purification can maintain stable blood circulation and prevent a series of side effects.
All of the above methods have a quick and obvious effect on lowering high phosphorus and creatinine levels.
Is there any alternative therapy for ESRD patients?
If patients still have certain kidney function and urine output, it is still possible for these patients to rescue their kidneys. If they want to say goodbye to dialysis, they can try Stem Cell Therapy.
Stem Cell Therapy is one innovative therapy that has been applied widely in end stage renal disease treatment. Because it can replace impaired or necrotic kidney cells with new kidney cells, patients can use this therapy to save their kidneys. However, this therapy still has some contraindications.
