At What Creatinine Level Do You Start Dialysis

At What Creatinine Level Do You Start DialysisAt what creatinine level do you start dialysis? Dialysis is one artificial kidney that is taken to replace damaged kidneys for filtering out waste products. Creatinine level, one indicator of kidney function, may help us determine the time to begin dialysis.

As we know, creatinine is just one factor to affect the time of dialysis beginning. Therefore, in different conditions, the answer to this question is different.

If high creatinine level is accompanied with other serious problems, you should begin dialysis earlier.

Generally speaking, creatinine level increases when more than 50% kidney function is lost. At this moment, patients are more likely to develop some other problems like acidosis, refractory hypertension, serious edema, etc. If you have one of these symptoms, you may need to begin dialysis when your creatinine level is about 5.0 mg/dl or 442 umol/L. This is because dialysis can help remove extra fluid and waste products from the body quickly.

If high creatinine level is your only problem, you can delay dialysis successfully.

In clinic, when creatinine level is higher than 8.0 mg/dl or 707 umol/L, we call it uremia. To maintain patients’ basic life, most patients have to live with kidney dialysis or do kidney transplant. That’s to say, kidney patients had better begin dialysis when their creatinine level is about 8.0 mg/dl. Dialysis is able to help reduce creatinine level obviously and quickly, but serum creatinine level may rise again during dialysis sessions.

If you still haven’t begun dialysis, it means you still have more chance to avoid dialysis completely than dialysis patients. Here, some kidney repairing treatments may be helpful. Blood Purification Therapy aims at cleansing blood, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy focuses on repairing damaged kidney cells and protecting remaining kidney function, while Stem Cell Therapy can prompt the regeneration of necrotic kidney cells and rebuild kidney structure.

Different treatment plans are suitable for different patients. If you want to get rid of dialysis thoroughly, you can send your illness description to renal-disease@hotmail.com. We are glad to help you determine a correct treatment plan.
