    What Is Your Creatinine When You Starts DialysisFor patients with CKD, their kidney function will be damaged gradually by their disease, which can cause many abnormal signs and symptoms in their body. Creatinine is an important standard to learn about patient’s kidney function, which indicates patients have severe kidney damage. The severer patient’s kidney damage is, the higher his creatinine level will be.

    As we know, dialysis is an important way to prolong patient’s lifetime when their kidney function is damaged severely. Well then, what is the creatinine level when patients start dialysis?

    When patients will need dialysis?

    Dialysis is known as a kidney transplant therapy, which can help patients to remove out the metabolic wastes and excess fluid from patient’s body, and it can also correct the metabolic disorders.

    As patients’ kidney function is damaged gradually by kidney disease, patients can have many metabolic disorders, which can cause severe health problems, like cardiovascular disease, etc. To control patient’s condition, it is necessary to remove out the metabolic wastes and correct the metabolic disorders in patient’s body. For most patients, they will be recommended to accept dialysis when they have about 15% remaining kidney function, but that depends on patients’ own conditions.

    What is the creatinine level when patients start dialysis?

    On the other hand, creatinine is also an important standard to judge whether patients should accept dialysis, and when patient’s creatinine is much higher than normal, that means patient’s kidney damage is already very severe, and patients will need to accept dialysis when their kidney function is low enough.

    For healthy people, their creatinine range is 0.5~1.2mg/dL. In fact, creatinine level 5 is namely a standard to assess whether patients should accept dialysis.
