Should I start dialysis with creatinine 7.2? Most patietns with kidney disease concern with this question. Do you have this doubt? Now follow me and find the answers!
What is the kidney’s conditon with creatinine 7.2?
Firstly, you should make clear that creatinine is the metabolic product of muscles. The creatinine level in our body is at a certain range(0.5-1.2mg/dl) becasue kidneys will filter the extra one. Apparently, the creatinine 7.2 is much higher than the normal level. Usually, the creatinine level will not go up unless half of the kidney function has lost. That is to say, your kidneys have already been damaged and maybe the remaining kidney function is less than 50%.
Should you start dialysis with creatinine 7.2?
Since kidneys are no longer able to well perform their functions, some other method should be applied to replace kidney and to maintain a normal life. Dialysis is regarded as the treatment that can help kidneys do some of the jobs. It can help discharge some of the toxins, such as the creatinine. You may ask that at what creatinine level is dialysis needed. In terms of this question, I cannot give you an exact answer. All I can tell is that it depends on your own illness condition.
Creatinine 7.2 is indeed high. But this does not indicate that you should start dialysis. Only creatinine level is not enough to decide whether dialysis is needed or not. Many other factors should be taken into account, such as the symptoms of your illness. If there are obvious symptoms along with creatinine 7.2, such as nausea, vomits, itchy skin, muscle cramps, hyerkalemia, etc, then you should consider dialysis. But if you do not have these symptoms, dialysis should be delayed.
