Dialysis is the life-maintaining treatment for Kidney Failure patients which can help the damaged kidneys filter extra wastes and extra water from the body. Well then, one question among patients are discussed frequently, namely what kidney level do I need to start dialysis?
If you happen to be a kidney disease patient, surely you are familiar with GFR (glomerular filtration rate) and creatinne level which are reliable indicator to reflect how well your kidneys work. What’s more, according to GFR, Chronic Kidney Disease is divided into five stages. You can see clearly from the content below.
Stage 1 CKD: GFR 90, kidney function is normal;
Stage 2 CKD: GFR 60-89, kidney function decrease mildly;
Stage 3 CKD: GFR 30-59, kidney damage is moderate;
Stage 4 CKD: GFR 15-29, kidney is damaged severely;
Stage 5 CKD: GFR is less 15, last stage of kidney disease.
In a word, the more less GFR, the more severe kidney damage. Generally speaking, people with kidney disease don’t need dialysis unless their kidney function is less than 15% where their creatinine level is usually above 5 mg/dl or they have severe complications. However, the group of number is just a reference value. Because not all kidney failure patients need to undergo dialysis. To be frank, whether you need to undergo dialysis depends on your illness conditions like your age, severity of kidney damage, urine output, complications and so on. Then, there is also a concerned question for kidney failure patients. How to avoid dialysis?
