Can creatinine level rise again after dialysis? This is a common worrying question for dialysis patients with high creatinine levels. Here we will talk about this topic in the article. If you are interested in this, please read on.
Let’s see the overview of creatinine.
Creatinine is the metabolic wastes of our muscle and the meat products we eat and the extra creatinine should be discharge by the healthy kidneys. It is an indicator to reflect how well your kidneys are functioning. The damage kidney tissues and decreased GFR are the root causes of high creatinine level because high creatinine level is not easy to occur unless more than 50% kidney function has lost. Generally speaking, when it become extremely higher than the normal range (0.5-1.2mg/dl), dialysis may needed.
Why does creatinine level rise again after dialysis?
Dialysis is a renal replacement therapy which can help kidney filter our blood and remove the excessive water and waste products. It shows great effects in removing the waste products in blood for patients with kidney damage. However, only dialysis may be not enough to keep your blood clean. Because it is only just responsible for removing wastes rather than repairing kidney damage. This is one of reasons why creatinine level rise after dialysis. In addition, if the dialysis is insufficient, high creatinine level will also occur. What’s more, the fact is no one is willing to undergo dialysis because patients may feel discomforts during or after dialysis, such as anemia, nausea, vomiting, fatigue and weak and so on.
