Chronic kidney failure is one condition that kidney function level declines gradually. According to glomerular filtration rate (GFR), kidney failure is divided into five stages. Stage 3 Kidney Failure with creatinine 2.58 means more than 50% of kidney functioning tissues have been damaged.
Normally, every healthy people has two kidneys which are located in abdomen. Kidneys are excretory organs that have great compensatory ability, so serum creatinine level usually won’t be higher than the normal value, 0.5~1.2mg/dl, unless half of kidney function is lost.
Stage 3 renal failure is the moderate stage. In this stage, the remaining kidney functioning tissues can still maintain patients’ basic life but are more likely to cause some symptoms and complications such as proteinuria, swelling, high blood pressure and so on. Creatinine 2.58 results from excessive amount of metabolic waste products building up in the blood. If left uncontrolled, these waste products may attack kidneys and other organs easily through blood circulation.
From the above analysis, we can know it is urgent for stage 3 kidney failure patients to lower their high creatinine level and reverse kidney damage. Otherwise, they may need to begin dialysis or kidney transplant in the near future.
Until now, some systemic treatment options have been used maturely to deal with kidney damage and improve kidney patients’ overall health condition. For example, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Immunotherapy, Clear Blood Pollution Therapy and Stem Cell Therapy are applied to treat various types of chronic kidney failure. To determine which one is best for certain patient, doctors should have an overview of patients’ illness condition.
If you are one patient with stage 3 kidney failure and creatinine 2.58, remember not to miss the best treatment time to get recovery. A number of kidney experts are always here to help you.
