So question like what is the creatinine level to start dialysis becomes the one kidney disease patients care about. Contact ONLINE DOCTOR to get more details quickly and directly for free.
Because our kidneys have very strong compensatory ability, the creatinine level will not rise until about 40-50% of kidney function is lost. High creatinine level is enough to arouse your attention, that is the reason why kidney disease patients care about the ways to lower their high creatinine levels a lot.
Actually there is no a direct relation between creatinine level and the need for dialysis treatment? Doctors will recommend dialysis according to patients’ specific condition. For example, if your creatinine level is not that high, but you are experiencing some severe complications, or your serum potassium level exceeds 7mmol/L, or BUN level is more than 54mmpl/L, etc, then urgent dialysis should be started, otherwise the condition can be very dangerous. If your creatinine level is high, but there are no obvious complications and you still have a certain amount of urine output, in that case, dialysis treatment can be postponed.
Anyway, dialysis is unable to treat any kinds of kidney diseases. That patients notice the gradual decrease in their urine output indicates the continue reduction in kidney function.
