Peritoneal Dialysis for Lowering Creatinine in Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD)

What is creatinine and what does increased creatinine mean?
Creatinine is the metabolic wastes of the muscles and it is mainly discharged out of the body through the filtration ability of the glomeruli. Under normal circumstances the creatinine level is relatively stable and the increase of creatinine level can reflect substantial kidney damages and it indicates more than 1/3 of the kidney functions have been affected.
Increased creatinine level(At what creatinine level do you need dialysis) is one of the most common symptoms in Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) especially in the latter stage due to the progressive enlargement of these numerous cysts in the bilateral kidneys. These cysts will oppress adjacent tissues and replace the normal renal cells and tissues. Long term’s compression will cause lack of blood, oxygen and other nutritious substances needed by the kidneys, hence the renal structures will be changed and the renal cells and tissues will be damaged, the renal functions will decline. As a result, the kidneys cannot play its role normally and the metabolic wastes and toxins can not be discharged outsides through the kidneys. That is why the creatinine, uric acid and urea nitrogen will increase.How to Reduce High Creatinine Level in Blood
Peritoneal to help lower creatinine, urea nitrogen and uric acid
To help lower creatinine level, uric acid and urea nitrogen, peritoneal dialysis is the most widely used method. Peritoneal dialysis is to use the peritoneum as a semi-permeable membrane and put the prepared dialysate into the patient’s peritoneal cavity through the catheter. Through constant changes of the dialysate, the peritoneal dialysis can achieve the goal of clearing metabolic wastes and toxins and balancing the disorder of water and electrolyte. After the application of peritoneal dialysis, the creatinine level will decrease and patients can be greatly relieved from the pains and discomforts.

Peritoneal dialysis has many advantages such as convenience, safeness and it has better effects than hemodialysis in the removal of middle molecular substances and it can also help improve anemia and lesions in the nervous system.
However there are some cases that the peritoneal dialysis can not be used. Peritoneal dialysis is not suitable for patients that are suffering from extensive peritoneal adhesions, abdominal visceral injury, recent abdominal surgery, colostomy or fecal fistula, extensive infections in the abdominal wall, intra-abdominal diffuse malignant lesions. Also pregnancy and diabetes should be relative contraindications.Herbal Supplement to Lower Creatinine Levels
What is more, the peritoneal dialysis can not help shrink or remove the multiple cysts besides lowering creatinine level and relieving symptoms, therefore the kidney functions will continue to deteriorate and the creatinine will once again increase and the patients have to rely on peritoneal dialysis. While long term peritoneal will cause a series of complications (side effects of long term dialysis)and the kidneys' functions will be totally lost little by little.

More effective treatments besides peritoneal dialysis should be adopted to aim at shrinking the cysts and improving kidney functions. In this regard, the Chinese herbal medicines have good effects on both shrinking the cysts and recovering kidney functions.
