Should I be on dialysis with creatinine 3.4? We all known, dialysis is a treatment which can help purify blood effectively. However, it also has many side effects. Therefore, some people feel absolutely horrible creatinine level you are at and ask start dialysis treatment at right away. Well then, how is on earth the result?
What does creatinine 3.4 mean?
Creatinine is the waste product of muscle metabolism, and it is mainly excreted by kidneys. When the kidneys are damaged severely, or there are less than 50% kidney function, it will cause the elevation of creatinine level in blood. Creatinine 3.4 is much higher than the normal level 0.5-1.3 mg/dl, which means their kidneys have been damaged severely, and there are too much toxins and wastes building up in blood. So patients may need to take dialysis to remove the waste products out with a high creatinine level.
Then, should patients start dialysis with creatinine 3.4?
Actually, whether patients should start dialysis treatments or not needs to depend on the patient’s own illness conditions. Because patients have different body tolerant abilities.
On the one hand, you should do dialysis treatment.
If you have some severe symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, skin itching, high blood pressure, severe swelling, etc, you may need to take dialysis as soon as possible. Because these symptoms means there are too much toxins and wastes in blood, which can be life-threatening for you.
On the other hand, you can avoid dialysis.
Generally speaking, even though you have creaatinine level 3.4, you still may be asymptomatic due to strong physical tolerant ability. In the condition, dialysis is no need. However, you should do test regularly to monitor progression of illness condition.
