Creatinine Shot Up from 6.1 to 9.3: Is Dialysis Needed

Creatinine Shot Up from 6.1 to 9.3: Is Dialysis NeededSerum creatinine is one reliable indicator of kidney function. When creatinine shot up from 6.1 to 9.3, it is more likely to reveal the quick aggravation of kidney disease. Then, dialysis may be recommended for some patients.

At what creatinine level does dialysis start?

Generally speaking, if patients have acute kidney disease, they may need to begin dialysis when creatinine level is higher than 5.0 mg/dl. If patients are suffering from chronic kidney disease, dialysis may not be recommended to do dialysis until their serum creatinine level is higher than 8.0 mg/dl.

Creatinine shoots up from 6.1 to 9.3 mg/dl

Many factors can lead to the quick increase of serum creatinine level such as dehydration, heart problem, the aggravation of kidney disease, etc. Among them, worsened kidney condition is the most common cause. According to the above analysis, we can conclude patients with creatinine 9.3 may need to start dialysis. However, we should know that even though creatinine level is one indicator of kidney function, it shouldn’t be the only index to determine dialysis beginning time.

When kidney patients should begin dialysis?

If patients’ kidney function is still higher than 10% and they don’t have life-threatening complications, they can still live without dialysis. However, if creatinine 9.3 is accompanied by some severe complications such as lung edema, refractory high blood pressure, dangerous high potassium level, and so on, they should begin to do dialysis immediately.

Please, don’t worry. In this case, some kidney repairing therapies can still reduce the frequency of dialysis or even avoid it. Of course, the detailed treatment plan should depend on patients’ illness condition. If you want to get rid of dialysis, welcome to consult the Doctor online or leave your question in the below message board.
