Does Creatinine 4 Mean You Need Dialysis right away

2013-06-29 15:49

Does creatinine 4 mean you need dialysis right away? Well, it depends on your specific condition. If you are suffering from creatinine 4 and you try your best to avoid dialysis, the following information must be helpful.

Patients with creatinine 4 should begin the urgent dialysis

Creatinine 4 means the condition has already developed in stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease. Patients with this stage of kidney disease may present different signs, symptoms and complications. Generally speaking, it is a little earlier for patients with creatinine 4 to begin dialysis treatment. As a matter of fact, there is no a direct relation between dialysis and creatinine level.

Though creatinine 4 is not that high, if patients find that serum potassium level is more than 7mmol/L, or BUN level exceeds 54mmol/L, etc, urgent dialysis will be recommended. If you want to know more, click here: Professional Suggestions on What Creatinine Level Requires Dialysis.

For patients with creatinine 4, dialysis can be postponed

If patients with creatinine 4 don’t have any obvious symptoms and they still have some certain urine output, then dialysis can be postponed. However, if patients want to avoid dialysis and kidney transplant more effectively, the kidney damage must be repaired and kidney function must be recovered.

Nowadays, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is commonly used to help kidney disease patients save their own kidneys through a series of functions such as anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation, degradation, extending blood vessels, promoting blood circulation, removing blood stasis, providing nutrition for damaged kidneys and promoting DNA replication of damaged kidney inherent cells. With the recovery of kidney function, creatinine 4 will go back to the normal levels gradually, while the most important thing is that dialysis becomes needless.

So dialysis treatment is necessary sometimes, but a fact is that it is unable to treat any kinds of kidney diseases. We hope every kidney disease patient could avoid dialysis and kidney transplant.
