    If Creatinine Level Is 6.9, Then Dialysis Is Needed

    2014-03-14 14:25| Font Size A A A

    If Creatinine Level Is 6.9, Then Dialysis Is NeededCreatinine level is an important standard which can reflect patient’s kidney function, and that is why patients with kidney disease always hear their doctor talking about their creatinine level.

    For patients with kidney disease, if their high creatinine is caused by kidney damage, the higher their creatinine level is, the severer kidney damage they will have. The normal creatinine range is 0.5~1.2mg/dL, while if creatinine level is 6.9, that means patient’s creatinine level is very high.

    What can we know from creatinine level 6.9?

    Creatinine is a breakdown product of muscle, and it should be filtrated out by kidney. So, when patient’s kidney function is damaged by his disease, patient’s creatinine will be accumulated in his body, which can cause patient’s creatinine level to be high.

    On the other, creatinine level is not easy to be higher than normal, because kidney has strong metabolic ability, and half normal kidney function will be able to guarantee our body health. Thereby, when patient’s creatinine level is just a bit higher than normal, it means more than half normal kidney function has been damaged.

    Thereby, if patient’s 6.9 creatinine level is caused by kidney damage, that means patient’s kidney damage is very severe.

    Will patients with 6.9 creatinine level need dialysis?

    Kidney plays a key role in regulating our body’s balances of acid-base, electrolytes, and fluid, so when kidney is severely damaged, many metabolic disorders will appear in our body. And dialysis is a kidney replacement therapy which can help correct our body’s internal balance, which is very useful for patients with the late stage of kidney disease.

    As we have said, higher creatinine level means patient’s kidney damage is severer. Well then, will patients with creatinine level 6.9 need dialysis?

    In fact, for most patients, their doctor will recommend them to accept dialysis when their creatinine level is about 5, because the amount of toxins and metabolic wastes begins to exceed patients’ tolerance. But not all patients will have to accept dialysis when their creatinine level reaches 5, because some patients many feel ok even their creatinine level is higher than this level.

    Thereby, whether patient with creatinine level 6.9 need dialysis is decided by patient’s own condition, but it is more likely for them to need dialysis at this point.
