Lower BUN and Creatinine Levels in Renal Failure

2013-03-24 13:29

Renal Failure patients usually suffer high BUN and creatinine levels, that is because the kidneys have been damaged severely and much kidney function has been lost. How to lower BUN and creatinine levels in Renal Failure? Is dialysis the only ways?

Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN) is a measure of wastes in the blood. Urea is produced from the breakdown of protein already in the body and protein in your diet. A high BUN level usually eans that the kidney function is less than normal. Creatinine is a waste product that is made when your body breaks down protein you eat and when muscles are injured. A high creatinine level means kidney damage and poor kidney function.

High BUN and creatinine levels can cause some kidney disease symptoms like a bad taste in the mouth, poor appetite, nausea and vomiting and so on. Then how to lower BUN and creatinine levels in Renal Failure?

If there are some obvious symptoms caused by high BUN and creatinine levels in Renal Failure, dialysis will be recommended. In dialysis, BUN is used to measure whether a person is receiving the correct amount of dialysis. Though dialysis can lower BUN and creatinine levels in Renal Failure to some extent, it is not a long-term method. How about the kidney damage caused by your primary disease and the poor kidney function? Dialysis is unable to repair kidney damage and improve kidney function.

If you have not been on dialysis, kidney disease experts recommend you to try Chinese herbal medicines which can both directly and indirectly lower BUN and creatinine levels in Renal Failure. Chinese rhubarb can be used to directly lower BUN and creatinine levels. However, the purpose of Chinese herbal medicines is to repair kidney damage and improve kidney function through a series of functions like anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation, degradation, promoting blood circulation, removing blood stasis, providing nutrition for damaged kidneys and eliminating pathogenic factor and supporting genuine Qi. Dialysis can be avoided if the kidney function can be recovered gradually. Also the reasonable diet is important in lowering BUN and creatinine levels in Renal Failure.
