Dialysis is regarded as the treatment for patients with kidney failure with high creatinine level. But not once creatinine level is elevated, dialysis is needed. What is the creatinine level that dialysis will be required?
In term of high creatinine level for dialysis, there are different standards for different people. Normally, when creatinine level rises to 5 mg/dl, dialysis is needed. But if high creatinine level does not cause any symptoms, dialysis can be postponed. So creatinine level is not the only standard lab value to start dialysis. You may ask the following questions:
What other factors that are relevant to when to start dialysis?

If you are aged people, you are suggested to start dialysis early than the young. Your illness condition is also an important factor. If the high creatinine level cause symptoms, like itchy skin, muscle cramps, sleepiness, nausea, vomits, etc, dialysis is needed even if your creatinine level is not that high.
