When condition develops kidney failure, patients begin to care about whether dialysis should start or not. If you are suffering from creatinine 6.9 or similar levels, you must be also wondering should dialysis start, right?
Firstly, kidney failure patients should know that creatinine 6.9 tells the condition has already developed stage 5 kidney failure, the most advanced stage of kidney disease. In many countries, it seems that dialysis or kidney transplant will becomes the only choice for patients. Kidney failure patients with creatinine 6.9 may be recommended dialysis, but it is a fact that they do not want to experience it.
It is difficult to say whether dialysis should start when creatinine level increases to 6.9. Dialysis is also a double-edged sword. We have to admit that dialysis can help kidney failure patients remove wastes and excessive fluid out of body, thus relieving some symptoms. But dialysis also can cause other various problems which make quality of life poorer, and it can do nothing to treat kidney itself, so patients will experience the decrease in urine volume with the continue loss in kidney function.
If kidney failure patients with creatinine 6.9 are suffering from some severe complications like severe nausea and vomiting, severe edema, shortness of breath, or high potassium level (more than 7), etc, then dialysis should start to avoid more serious consequences happening. However, if they do not have those obvious complications and there still has a certain amount of urine, dialysis can be postponed. In that case, they should go and find a proper treatment to help them to avoid dialysis, and the only way is to repair kidney damage and recover renal function.
