Does Creatinine 3.2 Need DialysisCreatinine is a main indicator reflecting how well your kidneys are working. High creatinine will occur when your kidneys are damaged, while it does’t mean that dialysis is necessary.

Does creatinine 3.2 need dialysis?

In general, the critical level is the 0.5-1.1mg/dl for female and 0.6-1.2mg/dl for male. Different hospitals and labs may have their own standards. In most cases, when the creatinine level reaches higher than 5mg/dl, dialysis may be recommended. Yet, this is not always true for everyone. Whether dialysis is needed depends on many factors, including creatinine level, glomerular filtration rate (GFR), kidney function, severity of symptoms or complications.

For example, if a person has poor urine output, high blood urea nitrogen (BUN) or uncontrolled high blood pressure, etc, the dialysis is needed even the creatinine level is low. That’s the reason why some Chronic Kidney Disease patients start dialysis with a low creatinine level.

However, if the patient has a good output, even with a high creatinine level, maybe he or she don’t need dialysis. So the treatment should depend on one’s own condition.

How serious is creatinine 3.2?

Chronic Kidney Disease is divided into five stages based on the creatinine level and GFR. Creatinine 3.2 indicates your are in Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease. Even though this stage is not reversible, timely and effective treatment can improve this condition and prolong the lifespan of the patients. If left untreated or wrongly treated, dialysis will be taken in the neat future.

The best treatment for creatinine 3.2

Here, I recommend you to take Micro-Chinese Medicines based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It lower high creatinine by improing kidney function so that the kidneys can filter more wastes and toxins. Unlike medicines and dialysis, this therapy is more natural, because Chinese herbs come from the nature and it is used externally with the help of some osmotic devices. In addtion, since it aims at repairing renal intrinsic cells, it can solve the underlying problem instead of simply relieveing symptoms.
