Can FSGS Patients And Creatinine 4.9 Need Dialysis

Can FSGS Patients And Creatinine 4.9 Need DialysisFSGS is a kidney disease which can cause damage in patient’s glomeruli, and that can damage patient’s kidney function and lower patient’s GFR directly.

Creatinine is a reflection of patient’s kidney condition, and high creatinine is a usual indicator of severe kidney damage. The higher patient’s creatinine level is, the lower patient’s kidney function will be. Well then, if a patient with FSGS and has creatinine level 4.9, will he need dialysis?

Why patients with kidney disease need dialysis?

Dialysis is a kidney replacement therapy, and it will be used when patient’s kidney function is too low.

Kidney has the function of regulating our internal body balance, which is achieved by regulating the balance of electrolytes, amino-acid, fluid, etc. Thereby, for patients with kidney disease, they can have many metabolic disorders in their body, which can cause many health problems.

As a result, when there are lots of metabolic wastes accumulating in patient’s body, they can damage patient’s body health severely. To remove the metabolic wastes and correct the metabolic disorders, dialysis will be used when patient’s kidney function is too low.

Can FSGS patients with 4.9 creatinine level need dialysis?

For most FSGS patients, when their left kidney function is about 15%, their doctor will recommend them to take dialysis, and that is about when patient is going into the end stage.

On the other hand, creatinine level is also a standard to judge whether patients need dialysis, because that indicates how much toxins and wastes accumulating in patient’s body. For most patients, they will need dialysis when their creatinine level reaches 5, so FSGS patients with creatinine level 4.9 may need dialysis in the near future. But that also depends on patient’s personal condition, because some patients have well tolerance to metabolic wastes, and they may not need dialysis even their creatinine level is higher than 5.

But if FSGS patients with creatinine level 4.9 already have severe complications caused by metabolic disorder, dialysis will also be needed to correct the imbalance in their body.

Thereby, FSGS patients with creatinine level 4.9 have severe renal condition, but whether they need dialysis depend on their own condition.

As we know, kidney disease is such a severe health problem that patients should do what they can to improve their condition. And if you need any help, you can leave us a message, and we will do what we can to help you.
