“I just seek information on patient care for FSGS patient with Sr.Creatinine 3.4.” If there is member in your family with this disease, you may have the similar doubt. In this article, renal expert from Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease will tell you how to take good care of the patients.
First of all, we should clear about the condition of patients.
Creatinine is a kind of waste product passed out of body via kidneys. Its level does not increase until more than 50% of kidneys are damaged. Now creatinine 3.4 is almost three times of the normal range, thereby the kidneys have been severely damaged. In such a case, patients have to pay attention to several aspects of life to prevent the disease from developing too quickly.
The damaged kidneys can not filter waste products from the body adequately. One of the sources of waste products is food you take, thereby to reduce the production of waste products and decrease the burden of kidneys, you should know what food is good for your health and what food you should avoid. Generally speaking, you should reduce protein and salt intake, and eat more fresh vegetables and fruits.
When disease is stable, doing some gentle exercises such as walking, jogging and bicycling is good for health. For example, it helps lower high blood pressure, reduce high blood cholesterol level, strengthen immunity, boost energy, etc.
Treatment for FSGS should not only help control symptoms and complications, but also repair kidney damage and promote kidney function. In our hospital, Toxin-Removing Treatment is often used. It is a combination of Chinese medicine, which can remove massive waste products from body to make internal environment clean for kidney self-healing and other medication application. It can also dilate blood vessels and remove stasis to improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into damaged kidneys to provide them with enough essential elements such as oxygen, nutrients and active ingredients of medicine to speed up kidney recovery. After a short period of treatment, symptoms such as proteinuria and swelling will get controlled. After a long period of treatment, kidney function will increase gradually.
