Creatinine 1.7 is slightly higher than the normal range (0.5-1.3mg/dL). Although it is far from creatinine 5 at what level dialysis is usually needed, for Polycystic Kidney Disease patients, they need to be alert when their creatinine level increases to 1.7.

So for PKD patients, creatinine 1.7 mean their kidney function has been seriously affected. Under such a circumstance, without effective control, Polycystic Kidney Disease progresses to kidney failure directly.
