    At What Creatinine Level Will Dialysis Be Required

    2014-06-11 02:19| Font Size A A A

    At What Creatinine Level Will Dialysis Be RequiredDialysis is an important method to prolong patient’s lifetime when patient’s kidney function is damaged severely. For patients with CKD, their kidney function will be damaged gradually, and that will cause patient’s creatinine level to be higher and higher in this process, which is an important refelection of patient’s remaining kidney function. Well then, at what creatinine level will dialysis be required?

    What is the connection between creatinine and kidey function?

    Kidney is in charge of filtrating out the metabolic wastes from our body, and creatinine is a toxic substance which should be removed out by kidney. However, creatinine will not be reabsorbed back to blood by kidney tubule, so its level in blood can refelct patient’s kidney function.

    However, it is not easy for patients to have high creatinine, because our kidneys have strong metabolic ability, and half normal kidney function will be able to guarantee our body health. Thereby, patients will not have high creatinine unless the damaged kidney function reachs half, and the severer kidney damage patient has, the higher his creatinine level will be. Thereby, when patient’s creatinine level is high enough, that indicates patients will need dialysis to prolong his lifetime.

    When will dialysis be required?

    Dialysis is a kidney replacement therapy, which will be needed when patient’s kidney function is too low to filrate out the metabolic wastes adequetely from patient’s body. Besides, when patient’s kidney function is too low, he will have many metabolic disorders, which can cause many severe health problems, and dialysis will also be needed to correct the metabolic disorders in his body.

    As metabolic wastes accumulate in patient’s body, it is normal for patients to have high creatinine. In fact, when patient’s creatinine level reach about 5, their doctor usually recommend them dialysis, because most patients can not bear the metabolic wastes in their body at this point. However, different patients have different conditions, and not all patients must accept dialysis at creatinine level 5.
