What Does Your Creatinine level Have to Be at Before You Go on Dialysis with FSGS

What Does Your Creatinine level Have to Be at Before You Go on Dialysis with FSGSCreatinine is one of the indicators that show how well the kidneys are functioning. Under normal circumstance, creatinine level does not increase until more than 50% kidney function loses. Therefore, importance should be attached as long as your creatinine level increases. What does your creatinine level have to be at before you go on dialysis with FSGS?

Creatinine level is not the only criterion for dialysis.

For some patients, they need dialysis when their creatinine is as high as 1000umol/L, while for some patients, they can not bear the body malaise when their creatinine is 400-500 umol/L so that they have to do dialysis to cleanse waste products from the blood. Generally speaking, when creatinine is more than 707 umol/L, dialysis is recommended. Therefore, we can not tell whether you need dialysis or not from creatinine level simply, because different patients have different medical condition.

When you need dialysis?

-Ccr≤ 10 ml/min

-BUN ≥35 mmol/L (97.6 mg/dL)

-Creatinine ≥ 884 umol/L (10 mg/dL)

-When serum potassium >6.5 mmol/L and you have less urine, anuria, severe edema, pulmonary edema, encephaledema and some other severe symptoms, you may need dialysis to correct these conditions.

How to get rid of dialysis?

Though dialysis can prolong your life, it is not perfect. Long-term dialysis is not good for you to protect the remaining kidney function. And it has many complications, such as skin itch, muscle cramp and heart disease. If you want to keep dialysis away, you should repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. In Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, there are many therapies to help you, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Mai Kang Composition, Medicated Bath and decoction. They can regulate the qi flowing through the channels, remove stasis and cleanse waste products so as to help kidney self-healing.
