Do I need dialysis with creatinine 6.6? It’s no doubt that Dialysis is a fast aid to lower high creatinine level for renal disease patients, however, most patients do not know which creatinine level requires dialysis treatment. Here we consult a kidney expert from Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital-one largest kidney disease hospital in China, getting the following information.
Creatinine level is the metabolic product of muscle and is secreted into blood stream. And it is an important index of kidney disease. As diseased kidneys fail to filter creatinine from the blood effectively. Therefore, high levels of creatinine build up in blood, resulting in high creatinine level. However, there is one point you should know, elevated creatinine level is not an early sign of kidney disease. For powerful compensatory capacity of kidneys, it does not begin to rise until more than half of kidney function has already been lost.
Analysis of creatinine 6.6
Creatinine 6.6 is extremely higher than the normal range which ranges from 0.5-1.1 for females and 0.6-1.2 for males. To some extent, it indicates kidneys have been damaged severely. In some cases, some patients with the creatinine level may suffer from other symptoms like nausea, vomiting, dizziness, high blood pressure and so on. However, some patients may be asymptomatic because these people have strong tolerant ability.

Actually, there is no specific answer because I do not know your specific illness conditions. Although creatinine 6.6 is so high, if you still have some certain amount of urine output and there are no any obvious symptoms or complications, dialysis is no needed; while when people suffer from severe symptoms and complications, dialysis will be recommended. Of course, though not that high creatinine is, if your body’ tolerant ability is wake, you may suffer a lot, then urgent dialysis treatment should be started.
