A: Firstly, I can tell you that your creatinine level is higher than the normal level of 0.5-1.3 mg/dl. In terms of dialysis, it depends on your own illness condition. At normal circumstance, creatinine 4.2 do not need dialysis if you have no severe complications, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, nausea, vomiting, anemia and so on. If you are experiencing severe complications, you are suggested to start dialysis.
Creatinine is the metabolic waste of muscle, which should be filtrated by kidney. Due to the compensatory ability of kidney, the creatinine level will not raise until half of the kidney function loses. If the creatinine buildup in the blood to a certain level, kidney function will be severely affected. So you should remove kidney the extra creatinine away.
Dialysis functions as an artificial kidney which can help kidney filtrate the waste product and toxins so as to purify the blood. If the extra creatinine is removed, the high creatinine level can be lowered. With lowered creatinine level, the kidney will feel free and the complications will be alleviated.
