PCKD, Creatinine 5.4 and GFR 11: Is It Possible to Avoid DialysisAnswer: From you said, your uncle is at end stage renal disease (ESRD), in which he needs dialysis or kidney transplant to maintain his life.

  2. Central or peripheral nerve damage and mental disorders.
  3. Systemic edema, pulmonary edema.
  4. Serum creatinine≥707 gmol/L, or blood urea nitrogen≥28.56 mmol/L; Or endogenous creatinine clearance (Ccr)≤10-15ml/min.
  5. Serum potassium >6.5 mmol/L.

As long as your uncle meet two of the above conditions, hemodialysis should be started. But the primary disease, clinical conditions, cardiac function and urine volume should also be taken into consideration.
