Details: My mother’s creatinine level in the blood has raised to 8.67 mg/dl. Doctors told us that it is fairly high and suggested dialysis. Is dialysis a must for her?

Expert Answer

Although serum creatinine level can help reveal how well kidneys are functioning, it isn’t the only indicator to indicate kidney function level. Your mother’s serum creatinine level is 8.67mg/dl that is indeed quite higher than the normal value, so she should take some therapies to lower high creatinine level and boost kidney condition.

Of course, dialysis is one common therapy used to replace impaired kidneys to cleanse the blood and maintain patients’ basic life. However, patients need to follow a restrict life schedule. The longer patients on dialysis, the more side effects they may have. This is why a lot of patients try to get rid of dialysis.
