Serum creatinine 7.2 is a very high level, which means there are lots of toxins in blood. Dialysis as of now is the quickest way to get blood cleansed in short time, so it is needed in such a case. Well, how long one has to go with dialysis when creatinine level is 7.2? As for this question, there are two points we need to explain.

1. Dialysis is a life-long process

As a matter of fact, dialysis is not a real treatment for kidney failure, but a way to help people whose kidneys have severely damaged get their blood cleaned, so as to protect internal organs from being affected.

Dialysis helps to purify blood, but its effect is temporary. After dialysis, newly produced toxins build up in blood again and to keep blood clean, regular dialysis is needed. Therefore, dialysis is a life-long process.

2. There is way to help someone get off dialysis successfully

For an individual whose serum creatinine level is as high as 7.2, dialysis is needed to support his life. However, this does not mean once he starts dialysis, he can not get off it.

For patients who are newly on dialysis and meanwhile have good urine output, there is chance for them to get rid of dialysis. And for these whose kidneys have almost failed completely, although it is hard to get off dialysis, there is great chance to help them reduce dialysis frequency.

Dialysis is the mostly mentioned solution for kidney failure, but it is not the only one. For these who have not started dialysis, there is alternative treatment. If you are interested in learning alternative treatment, please leave us message or contact online doctor.
