At What Creatinine Level Is Dialysis StartedCreatinine level is usually used as an important indicator of kidney function. The more seriously kidney function declines, the higher creatinine level is. When kidney function decreases to less than 15% and many wastes and toxins build up in body, dialysis will be helpful for patients to remove wastes and lower creatinine level. Some patients with high creatinine level are concerned that at what creatinine level dialysis is started.

For normal people, creatinine level ranges from 0.5 to 1.2 mg/dL. In general, when creatinine level is more than 5, dialysis may be recommended. However, creatinine level is not the only factor which can decide if dialysis is needed. The conditions of complications can also decide if dialysis is necessary. Thus, if patients with creatinine which is more than 5 and complications occurs very obviously, patients should do dialysis to remove wastes and toxins from body. And if patients only have creatinine 5 without obvious complications, they don’t need to do dialysis very necessarily.

Dialysis can eliminate wastes and toxins from body, improving condition of patients on dialysis. However, it can’t help repair kidney damage and recover kidney function. Moreover, dialysis has many side effects on patients on dialysis, like muscle cramps, skin itching, low blood pressure, fatigue, and so on. Thus, patients don’t want to do dialysis. They are eager for alternative treatment. Hot compress therapy can treat high creatinine level effectively without any side effects. Chinese medicines in hot compress therapy derive from natural plants, and can prevent inflammation in kidney, blood clotting, promote blood circulation and repair kidney damage. In this way, kidney function can be recovered. Thus, creatinine can be eliminated from body largely, lowering creatinine level. It is worthy for patients with high creatinine level to get treated by hot compress therapy replacing dialysis.
