However, when the kidney function are less than 50%, the creatinine level will be higher than the normal level. So when the creatinine level is 4.0 which is much higher than the normal range of 0.5-1.2, it means that the kidney function is reduced severely.

For kidney disease patients, when the creatinine level reaches 5, they are often recommended to take dialysis, because their impaired kidney function cannot excrete the toxins and metabolites any more.
