For high creatinine level patients, they often have such curiosity: how to know whether I need to dialysis with high creatinine level? How about creatinine 3.8? Some patients may be suggested by their doctors, but the fact is that no one is willing to undergo this treatment. So they are confused. Please don’t worry, if you are a sufferer, please read on and you will benefit a lot from this passage.
Creatinine level is an important indicator to reflect renal function and extra creatinine should be filtered out of the body by the healthy kidneys. The normal range of creatinine level is 0.5-1.1 mg/dl for female and 0.6-1.1mg/dl for male. Compared the normal range, creatinine 3.8 is higher and creatinine level 3.8 means that your illness condition has developed into stage 3 chronic kidney disease, which is one of critical period to receive the proper treatment. Otherwise, the condition will develop stage 4 kidney disease rapidly which there has little possibility to reverse the condition.
Generally speaking, it is a little earlier for patients with a 3.6 creatinine level to experience dialysis, but there is nothing absolute in the world. In other words, there is no direct relation between the need of dialysis and creatinine level. Although more creatinine level is, it is more likely to need dialysis. Only a creatinine level is not enough to decide whether dialysis is needed or not. If the high creatinine level begins to cause some obvious symptoms or complications such as nausea, vomiting, poor appetite, anemia, difficult breathing, heart problems and so on, then dialysis should be needed. So it should depends on patients’ specific condition.
