Is Dialysis Needed When My Creatinine Level Is 4.7

Is Dialysis Needed When My Creatinine Level Is 4.7High creatinine is a common problem for patients with kidney disease, and when patients’ creatinine level is too high, they will need dialysis to bring down their creatinine level and prolong their lifetime.

Creatinine level 4.7 is much higher than normal, which indicates severe damage of patient’s kidney function. So, if patients have creatinine level 4.7, is dialysis needed at this point?

What does high creatinine indicate?

Creatinine is a toxin to our body, and it should be filtrated out by kidney. On the other hand, body muscles and diet can produce creatinine continuously, so creatinine level changes in a stable range.

For patients with kidney disease, their creatinine level can be affected by many factors, but when it is caused by kidney damage, it will always be a dangerous sign. Our kidney has strong metabolic ability and strong compensatory ability, and patients will not have high creatinine unless more than half kidney function is damaged.

Thereby, if patient’s creatinine level is very high, and if it is caused by kidney damage, it means patient’s kidney damage is very severe.

Is dialysis needed when patient’s creatinine level is 4.7?

For renal patients with creatinine level 4.7, their kidney damage must be very severe. In fact, if patients’ creatinine level reaches 5, their doctors will recommend them to accept dialysis, because patients are going into the end stage of kidney disease. Thereby, patients with creatinine level 4.7 may have not accept dialysis, but it is not too far for patients to need dialysis at this point.

Besides, if patients have severe complications in their body when they are in the late stage of kidney disease, they will also need dialysis to guarantee their internal body balance and to control their overall condition.

Thereby, whether patients need dialysis is decided by their own conditions, but it is very likely for them to accept dialysis or at least they will need dialysis before long.

As we know, kidney disease is very dangerous, and patients should do what they can to improve their condition. If you have any trouble, you can leave us a message, and we will do what we can to help you.
