Which Creatinine Level Requires Dialysis

2015-09-14 02:01

Which Creatinine Level Requires DialysisWhen the patients in stage 5 of the kidney failure,in general,the patients need to dialysis,but it is not sure that the patients with kidney failure must dialysis.Creatinine level is only an index which can help the patients to decide whether having a dialysis.

When the creatinine level increase to 5,in this situation, the doctor suggest the patients have a dialysis.Creatinine is one of the wastes produced by the patients’ bodies,and is kept in normal range 0.5-1.3mg/dl.When lots of creatinine are produced at one time,kidneys will work hardly to excrete them.However, for kidney failure patients, damaged kidneys cannot bear heavy burden and fail to discharge excess creatinine, as a result of which,creatinine level increases.

When kidneys fail to discharge creatinine,they can’t discharge other toxins as well.This is the reason why high creatinine level means there are lots of toxins in patients’ blood.Creatinine helps to decide whether dialysis should be started by kidney failure patients,but not everyone with creatinine level higher than 5 needs to start dialysis immediately.Creatinine is just one of the toxins in the blood, and we can’t make decisions only according to creatinine 5,as long as they have no serious complications like nausea,vomit,itching skin and hear failure,they can live without dialysis.

Dialysis is a life-sustaining medical method for kidney failure patients whose kidneys have been failed completely.It helps to remove toxins in blood and thus protect other organs.However,although it is helpful,it is not perfect,as it can not repair injured kidney cells.kidney disease progresses as more and more kidney intrinsic cells lose their working ability.For a kidney failure patient,there is dead,injured and healthy kidney cells.For these dead kidney intrinsic cells,they can not be repaired,so we can’t cure kidney failure.However,for these injured kidney intrinsic cells,they can be repaired by increasing their self-repairing ability. As long as much more kidney cells begin to function well, kidney function gets improved and also patients get far away from dialysis.
