What is creatinine and what does increased creatinine mean?
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.

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
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. For more detailed information about Chinese herbal
