2014-08-03 09:02

Why am i on dialysis but creatinine is till high in ESRD ? This is a common topic for people who are in this situation. Before get this answer you need to know clear the following questions what is dialysis and the function of it, what is creatinine and how the high level formed. Next let us have a look together.

What is dialysis and the function of it ?

Dialysis is a treatment which outsources the functions of failed kidneys. It is often needed when one develops ESRD (End-stage Renal Disease) and by the time, one has already lost 85 to 90 percent of kidney function. The therapy is able to keep your body in balance since your own damaged kidneys could not do their job well such as remove wastes, toxins and extra water from blood, regulate electrolytes, keep blood pressure in check, secrete certain steroids and so on. In one word, it can replace the kidney to do keep our body balance.

What is creatinine and how the high level formed ?

The creatinine is a kind of wastes produced by muscle metabolism and they should be filtered through our kidneys' glomeruli and then discharged out by urine. After the glomeruli damaged, the GFR(glomerular filtration function) will decreases, these wastes will not be removed timely and they will accumulate in the body, that is why the serum creatinine shows high.

After knowing the above questions clear, we can get the answer about why am i on dialysis but the creatinine level is still high easily. That is because the dialysis just can help to remove the wasts but can not repair the damaged renal function, after stoping it, the creatinine level will back to the previous level.
