GFR 18 and creatinine 3.6 indicates Hypertensive Nephropathy has aggravated into stage 4. If left alone, patients may have kidney failure quickly. Is there one effective therapy to stop the aggravation of Hypertensive Nephropathy?
The onset of Hypertensive Nephropathy
Hypertensive Nephropathy is due to chronic hypertension. High blood pressure can cause increased pressure against blood vessels in kidneys, while kidney filters are made by capillaries. This induces more protein to leak from kidneys into urine, forming proteinuria. In turn, protein leakage can cause further kidney damage. This forms one vicious cycle and Hypertensive Nephropathy appears.
How to manage high creatinine 3.6 and GFR 18 for these patients?
From the above analysis, we can know the treatment should begin from controlling high blood pressure. In clinic, many medications can help lower high creatinine level, and ACEI and ARBs are usually the preferred medicines for patients with both high blood pressure and kidney damage. To support the therapeutic effects of these medicines, patients should also follow a low-sodium diet plan and limit their protein intake.
If their blood pressure can’t be managed well with the above medicines and diet, they can also use some auxiliary therapies such as Medicated Bath, Acupuncture and Hot Compress Therapy. According to patients’ medical condition, doctors will choose correc methods to lower their high blood pressure.
After blood pressure is managed very well, patients should take therapies to rebuild their kidney filtering structure and improve their kidney condition. Here, we would like to introduce Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy that can help nourish damaged kidney cells and boost patients’ kidney condition. This therapy has hundreds of formulas suitable for different patients. Once patients’ glomerular filtration rate increases successfully, patients’ high creatinine 3.6 will decline naturally.
