Does My Brother Need Another Dialysis Now at Creatinine 7.6Visitor10-17 19:35:44

Hello doctor. My brother’s creatinine level was 9.9. He was hospitalized for three days and underwent dialysis twice. Creatinine level came down to 4. He was then sent home. Three days later creatinine level is 7.6. Does he need dialysis now or he can wait and get creatinine checked again after a couple of days? Please advise.

The elevated creatinine level is a result of the damaged kidneys and the dialysis can not help him restore the kidney impairment. Whether he should do dialysis now depends on his personal illness condition. Generally speaking, he need to go to hospital for dialysis gradually. Does he have any discomforts? Like back pain, nausea, fatigue and so on?
