When Should Kidney Failure Patient Take Dialysis2016-10-17 13:52
In clinic, creatinine level is an indicator of dialysis, so if the creatinine level increased to high level, the doctor will recommend the patient to take dialysis. Then, is there any relationship between creatinine level and dialysis?
Actually, there is no direct relationship between creatinine level and dialysis, that is to say, only a creatinine level is not enough to decide whether dialysis should be started or not.
For example, if the creatinine level increased to 4.5, in many countries, the doctor will recommend the patients to take dialysis or kidney transplant. However, just like what we mentioned, creatinine level is not quite enough on its own and needs to be looked at in the context of the other blood values, such as urea and potassium levels and how patients are feeling in themselves. If the urea level is high, patients could feel sick, be itching, irritable, unable to eat and stuff like that, in that case, patients will need to start dialysis sooner rather than later.
