    When Would I Need Dialysis If I Have Creatinine 4.28 And GFR 11

    When Would I Need Dialysis If I Have Creatinine 4.28 And GFR 11As we know, if patient’s kidney function is too low, they will need dialysis to prolong their lifetime. For patient with GFR 11 and creatinine level 4.28, his condition is already very severe, and when would patient need dialysis with these values?

    For patients with kidney disease, creatinine and GFR are two important standards to know their renal condition, and they are also important standards to decides what kind of treatments should be used to treat their disease.

    At what creatinine level should patients accepts dialysis?

    Creatinine is an important standard to judge whether it is needed for patients to accept dialysis, because creatinine can reflect patient’s kidney function, and the higher creatinine level is, the severer kidney damage patient has.

    For most patients, they will need dialysis when their creatinine level is about 5, but whether patients should accept dialysis is also decided by patient’s condition. Some patients may still feel well when they have creatinine level 5, and some patients may need dialysis to keep their metabolic balances before their creatinine reaches 5.

    At what GFR level should patients accept dialysis?

    As we know, kidney disease is divided into five stages according to patient’s GFR, and when patients have 15% remaining kidney function, they be recommended to accept dialysis to keep their internal body balances and prolong their lifetime.

    In fact, if patients do not severe complications in their body, usually they will need dialysis when they are going into CKD stage 5, which means patients will be recommended dialysis when their GFR is about 15.

    Thereby, if patient has GFR 11 and creatinine level 4.28, he may not have severe complications in his body, but his condition is really very severe at this point, and maybe he should take dialysis before his metabolic imbalances cause severe damage in his body.
