Does Creatinine 4 Need Dialysis Right Now

2014-11-16 10:20

dialysisThe appearance of high creatinine tells at least 50% of kidney function has been lost, and the impaired kidney function puts lots of patients on dialysis treatment. It seems that there has a certain relation between creatinine level and dialysis. However, does creatinine 4 need dialysis right now?

Firstly, patients with creatinine 4 or very similar levels should know that the condition has already developed stage 3 chronic kidney disease. This stage means the moderate reduction in kidney function, in the clinic, symptoms and complications usually begin to appear. As a matter of fact, it still can be reversed. While, most cases are finally delayed.

In general, patients with creatinine 4 do not need dialysis right now, it seems a little earlier for them to begin dialysis treatment. When creatinine level increases to about 5mg/dl, in many countries, perhaps doctors will recommend dialysis. However, as a matter of fact, there is no a direct relation between a creatinine level and the need for dialysis.

It is difficult to say whether creatinine 4 needs dialysis right now or not, it depends on patients’ overall condition. If patients with creatinine 4 are having some obvious symptoms such as severe nausea, vomiting, shortness of breath, heart problems, etc, or potassium is more than 7mmol/l and it can not be controlled by western medications, they should begin dialysis as soon as possible, though their creatinine levels are not that high. However, if they do not have those obvious symptoms and complications, also their urine volume is nearly normal, then dialysis can be postponed.

We have to admit that no one kidney disease patient wants to experience dialysis treatment, and making kidneys work again by repairing kidney damage and improving kidney function becomes the only way, also it the best way to lower creatinine 4 and other high creatinine levels. So we hope kidney disease patients can realize that only western medications and healthy diet are not enough to treat kidney disease, with time going, creatinine level can become higher and higher as kidney function is continued to be lost.
