    I Have A Creatinine Level 4.7, Do I Need Dialysis

    2014-04-19 07:26| Font Size A A A

    I Have A Creatinine Level 4.7, Do I Need DialysisKidney disease can reduce patient’s kidney function gradually, and that can cause patients to have many changes in their body. For patients with kidney disease, an important standard for them to assess their kidney function is their creatinine level.

    Creatinine level 4.7 is a very high value, which means patient’s kidney damage is very severe. When patient’s kidney damage is too severe, patient will need dialysis to prolong their lifetime. Well then, for patients with creatinine level 4.7, do they need dialysis?

    Why dialysis is needed?

    Kidney has the function of regulating the balances of fluid, electrolytes and acid-base in our body, which is achieved by removing out the metabolic wastes and excess fluid from patient’s body. While kidney disease will damage our kidney function, and cause patients to have many metabolic imbalances, which can cause many health problems, like cardiovascular diseases and renal osteopathy.

    To protect patient’s overall health, it is necessary for patients to take dialysis to correct the metabolic imbalances in their body. Dialysis is a kidney replacement therapy, which can correct the metabolic imbalances and protect patient’s overall health.

    Do patients with creatinine level 4.7 need dialysis?

    The higher creatinine level is, the severer kidney damage patient has. When patient’s kidney function is damaged severely, he will need dialysis to help keep his internal body balance. As a result, when patient’s creatinine level is high enough, patient will need dialysis.

    For most patients, their doctor will recommend them to accept dialysis when their creatinine level reaches 5, because patient’s body condition is not able to bear the accumulated wastes and metabolic disorders in their bodies. Thereby, most patients may not have to accept dialysis when their creatinine level is 4.7, but they may need dialysis before long.

    High creatinine is a dangerous sign for patients with kidney disease, and patients should do what they can to improve their condition.
