Should Patients with Creatinine Level 2 Begin Dialysis

2013-11-01 17:22


Hi, doctor. My brother has been on diabetes for about 10 years, and recently his creatinine level has increased to 2mg/dL. Should he start dialysis treatment? I need you medical advises.


Kidney damage can be a common complication of diabetes. But here we cannot tell whether your brother’s condition is caused by diabetes or not. He should go and do some other tests like whether there has microalbumin or proteinuria.

If his creatinine level 2 has last for a long period of time and if we leave out other factors which can also influence the creatinine level, the appearance of high creatinine level can tell the kidney damage and impaired kidney function. Because our kidneys have very strong compensatory ability, the creatinine level will not increase until about 40-50% of kidney function is lost.

There is no a direct relation between creatinine level and the need for dialysis treatment. Though creatinine level 2 is not that high, if your brother is in some certain situations, then urgent dialysis treatment will also be recommended. You are welcomed to leave a message below or email to to tell us more about his condition or his results of test reports, our experts will surely help you to see whether dialysis treatment should be started, and some natural ways to help avoid dialysis will also be given.
