Patient: Now, I feel very worried, because my creatinine level goes from 7.2 to 9.1 mg/dl. Should I begin dialysis immediately to lower my serious creatinine level?
Doctor: From your description, we can only know your creatinine level. High creatinine level is indeed one index that determines when to begin dialysis. However, it shouldn’t be the only indicator. Therefore, now we can only give you some general advice. If you want to get accurate answer, you should tell us more about your illness condition.
Generally speaking, patients should consider dialysis, when their creatinine level is higher than 8.0 mg/dl. Creatinine 9.1 is higher than the above figure, so dialysis may be needed to keep you in safe condition. If you don’t have other serious problems and your GFR is still above 5%, you still have chance to live without dialysis. In this case, some treatments can help you delay or avoid dialysis.
Blood Pollution Therapy is just one helpful treatment. This therapy begins from clearing polluted blood, so as to eliminate more waste products and toxins. Then, high creatinine level reduces naturally. Also, it can help repair damaged but not necrotic kidney cells. Hopefully, this treatment can help you get rid of dialysis.
