PKD,Creatinine 4.6: Can I Avoid Dialysis

I am a patient of Polycystic Kidney Disease and as of now, my creatinine level is 4.6. I want to know when I should started dialysis? And can I avoid dialysis?

The Doctor Answered:

PKD,Creatinine 4.6: Can I Avoid DialysisDoctor: Usually, dialysis is needed when creatinine level increases to 5, however, many patients do not start dialysis until their life is seriously threatened.

Your current creatinine level is 4.6 which is very high and it indicates your kidneys have been seriously damaged. PKD is a genetic kidney problem and according to present medical technology, PKD gene can not be removed from patient at all. However, according to clinical experiments, kidney condition can be improved with proper treatment methods. Kidneys are responsible for removing toxins in the blood and when kidney function is improved, much more creatinine level will be discharged and also creatinine level is reduced.

Creatinine is one of the toxins produced by our body and high creatinine level means kidneys are failed to remove toxins out of the blood. This is the reason why PKD patients with high creatinine level need to start dialysis. In PKD cases, when kidney condition is improved, kidneys will be able to discharge much more toxins and also patients get farer away from dialysis. Therefore, it is possible for you to avoid dialysis.
