    Can Dialysis Lower High Creatinine Level

    Can Dialysis Lower High Creatinine LevelFor patients with kidney disease, high creatinine is a common problem which always needs to be concerned by them. Beside, when patients are in the late stage of kidney disease, dialysis is an important measure to protect patient’s health and prolong patient’s lifetime.

    Many patients with kidney disease have the doubt: dialysis is an important treatment for kidney disease, but it can not improve kidney function. Thereby, can dialysis lower their high creatinine level?

    What does high creatinine mean?

    Creatinine is a breakdown product of muscle, which should be filtrated out by kidney. For patients with kidney disease, when their kidney function is damaged by their disease, creatinine will accumulate in their body and then their creatinine level will be higher than normal.

    But it is not easy for patients with kidney disease to have high creatinine, because our kidney has strong metabolic ability. In fact, when patients with kidney disease has high creatinine, and if only patient’s creatinine level is a bit higher than normal, it means more than half kidney function has been damaged.

    What is the effect of dialysis?

    Dialysis is a kidney replacement therapy, and as we can conjecture from its effect, it can replace our kidneys to complete their work.

    Just like the function of kidney, dialysis can remove the metabolic wastes and excess fluid in patient’s body, and it can also correct the imbalance acid-base and electrolytes.

    Can dialysis lower high creatinine?

    Creatinine is a metabolic waste, and it should be filtrated out by kidney. As a result, creatinine will also be filtrated out by dialysis during the treatment.

    However, dialysis is not a perfect choice. In this treatment, blood will be transported out from patient’s body, and that will cause the shortage of blood flow in patient’s kidney, which will also cause patient’s kidney function to be reduced gradually. As a result, patient’s creatinine level will increase after a while.
