What Should a Dialysis Patient Creatinine Level BeAs we all know Kidney Failure patient need to undergo dialysis after their creatinine level up to a certain level, but most of them don’t know the level. Usually, weather a patient need take dialysis is determined by the doctor not the patient themself. But there are some people want too know it clear and they want to know if they are put to it too early. Next, let us have a look what the experts said about it. If you want to get the answer directly, you can chat with our online doctor.

It is known that creatinine level is one of the important indicator of Chronic Kidney Disease, according to the level of it, the disease can be divided into five stage. Usually, after the disease goes into stage 5, that is mean the creatinine level up to 8.0 patient need to take dialysis. But creatinine level is not the only indicator of kidney function, so we need to take other factors in when we decide to put patient under dialysis. The most important indicator we should take in is the GFR(Glomerular Filtration Rate), it can reflect the kidney function directly and it is more accurate than creatinine level. Because the kidneys have strong compensatory function, only after it down to 50% the creatinine level begin to increase, so it can not refect the kidney damage timely. What’s more, the creatinine level may affect by many factors, such as infection, cold, diet and so on.

When should patient need to undergo dialysis ? Experts said, after the disease developed into stage 5, that is mean the GFR down to 15%, the creatinine level up to 8.0, patient need to undergo it.
