    At What Creatine Level Is Dialysis Started  For patients with kidney disease, creatinine level is an important standard for them to learn about their renal condition. In fact, creatinine level is also a standard to judge whether patients need dialysis.

    Why dialysis is needed?

    Kidney plays a key role in regulating the metabolic balances of fluid, electrolytes and acid-base in our body, and when their kidney function is damaged obviously by kidney disease, there will be many metabolic disorders in patients’ body, which can cause them to have many complications, like cardiovascular diseases, renal osteopathy, etc.

    To correct the metabolic imbalances in patient’s body and to control patient’s conditions, it is necessary for patients to accept dialysis, which can help reach this purpose.

    At what creatinine level is dialysis started?

    Creatinine is a substance which should be filtrated out by kidney, and it can not be reabsorbed by kidney tubule, so its level can reflect patient’s kidney function. As a result, the higher creatinine level is, the lower kidney function patient has. When patient’s creatinine level is high enough, it will be necessary for them to accept dialysis.

    In fact, for patients with kidney disease, when they have 15% remaining kidney function, they will be recommended to accept dialysis. On the other hand, creatinine level is also a standard to decide whether it is necessary for patients to accept dialysis. For most patients, when their creatinine level reaches 5mg/dL, their doctors will recommend them to accept dialysis. But whether patient should accept dialysis is also decided by their own condition, some patients may not need dialysis even their creatinine level is higher than this value, because they have good tolerance to the accumulated toxins and metabolic wastes in their body. While some patients may need dialysis before their creatinine level reach 5 if they have severe complications which are caused by the metabolic imbalances in their body.

    Thereby, whether patients with kidney disease need dialysis is decided by their own condition. Kidney disease is complicated, and patients should do what they can to improve their condition.
