Q: Recently I was told that my Creatinine increased to 6.2, and GFR declined to 10%. Should I start Kidney Dialysis?
A: Both High Creatinine Level and GFR are the standards of Kidney Dialysis. In Kidney Failure, majority patients will be suggested take dialysis. For High Creatinine Level 6.2 and GFR 10%, should patients start dialysis?
What do creatinine 6.2 and GFR 10% indicate?
In clinic, the normal range of creatinine is 0.5 ~ 1.2mg/dl. Creatinine 6.2 is far higher than the normal. It indicates the kidney has been damaged seriously. Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) declined to 10% can also indicates the severe kidney damage and it means your kidney disease has developed to the End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD). With the declined kidney function, increasing toxins and wastes build up in blood, such as creatinine and BUN.
Should patients with creatinine 6.2 and GFR 10% start dialysis?
Frankly speaking, when patients are in kidney failure or GFR less than 15% or creatinine level higher than 501mg/dl, they will be asked to take dialysis. However, not all patients can take dialysis or must take dialysis. The illness condition of patients is different from case to case. If you have no serious symptom or complication, such as hyperkalemia, you have no necessity to take dialysis despite you have creatinine 6.2 and GFR 10%. On the contrary, if you have some severe symptoms, you should take dialysis timely.
What is more, repairing damaged kidney and improving kidney function is the most important thing. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and Stem cell therapy can help achieve the goal.
