The Doctor Answered:

How High Can Creatinine Level Go Before DialysisCreatinine level is an important indicator of kidney function. Generally, it means patients’ condition has developed into end stage, when creatinine level is higher than 8cm. If patients don’t have severe complications, patients can delay the time that dialysis is started, while patients need to begin dialysis early with severe complications such as high potassium level and diabetes.

Your father’s creatinine is indeed quite high. If he don’t want to undergo dialysis, he had better receive one alternative treatment, otherwise, the build up of creatinine may attack other organs and accelerate the progress of kidney disease. Consult the online doctor to choose one suitable treatment.
