High Creatinine 6.1, No Symptoms: Is Dialysis Needed

Posted:by kidneytc  Time:2015-03-24 10:49

Topics: Dialysis Creatinine

Details: Hi, my father is suffering from high creatinine 6.1, but he is not feeling anything abnormal, even his urinary function is also ok. Does he need dialysis now?

Expert Answer


Dialysis is very helpful in cleansing small molecular substances like creatinine, so after dialysis, serum creatinine level can be successfully reduced. Serum creatinine 6.1 is a very high level which means kidneys have been severely damaged and also there are high levels of toxins in the blood. The toxins in blood are very dangerous as they may damage any part of our body.

For your father, although his serum creatinine level is as high as, he can delay dialysis, because he has no discomforts now. In general, dialysis is required when patients experience symptoms like nausea, vomiting, skin itching, pulmonary edema as well as heart failure.

Dialysis as of now is the mot quickest way to cleanse blood, but not an ideal solution, because:

-dialysis is very risky

Dialysis might cause life-threatening complications like low blood pressure.

-dialysis is really an ordeal

Dialysis always cause physical discomforts like tiredness, skin itching, vomiting, muscle cramp and sleep problem.

-survival rate decreases over time for those who are on dialysis

Dialysis only helps to cleanse blood and it can not do as well as healthy kidneys do. Survival rate of dialysis sufferers decreases over time. According to clinical studies, the mortality rate of persons undergoing kidney dialysis for end stage renal disease is 22% in a year, which means the survival rate beyond 5 years is difficult.

For your father, although he is already in kidney failure stage, if he has good urine output, there is way for him to improve kidney function, reduce high creatinine level 6.1 and avoid dialysis.
