Is Dialysis the Only Choice for Patient with Creatinine 5.5Creatinine 5.5 is much higher than the normal levels, which means the kidneys have been damaged very severely. However, dialysis is not the only choice for patients who are in this situation.

Creatinine 5.5 means what?

In general, the creatinine level will not increase obviously until more than a half of kidney function has been lost, that is because the kidneys have very strong compensatory ability.

According to the creatinine levels, renal insufficiency is divided into four stages. Creatinine 5.5 is about equal to 459.68umol/L, it belongs to Renal Failure stage, the third stage of renal insufficiency. You can also say it is in stage 4 chronic kidney disease. In many countries, when the condition develops Renal Failure, dialysis will be in the near future.

Is dialysis the only choice for patient with creatinine 5.5?

Once the condition develops into Renal Failure, there are no treatments can cure the disease. But it does not mean Renal Failure patients have to take dialysis or receive a kidney transplant. Though creatinine 5.5 means the severe kidney damage and poor kidney function, if a treatment can help patients repair the kidney damage and enhance kidney function, then dialysis and kidney transplant are likely to be avoided.
