In many countries, it seems that dialysis treatment is commonly recommended when creatinine level increases to 5mg/dl.

In the clinic, we see many such cases: patients’creatinine levels are not that high, but they have already been on dialysis treatment; some patients with high creatinine level which even exceeds 1000umol/L still have not started dialysis treatment. So this is enough to say there is no an exact answer to what creatinine level requires dialysis treatment.

It is a fact that no one PKD and other kidney diseases patient wants to experience dialysis treatment.
