Does Creatinine Fall After DialysisCreatinine is one indicator for the time to begin dialysis. When creatinine level is higher than 5.0mg/dl, it may attack various organs and tissues besides kidneys via blood circulation. Thereby, a treatment to lower high creatinine level is needed urgently. Well, does creatinine fall after dialysis?

Dialysis and high creatinine level

Dialysis is also known as artificial kidneys. According to this description, we can know dialysis is mainly used to replace part of kidney function by clearing extra fluid, toxins and waste products. Of course, it doesn’t mean you have to begin dialysis as soon as you are diagnosed with kidney disease and high creatinine level.

Our kidneys are remarkable organs that can still do its work even though they are functioning only 85%. Also, creatinine level often doesn’t increase unless half of kidney functioning cells are damaged.

In clinic, dialysis may be recommended when patients have 15% kidney function or less, because this therapy can help prolong kidney failure patients’ life expectancy.

Does creatinine fall after kidney dialysis?

Dialysis has a quick and obvious effect on removing small molecular waste products from the body, while creatinine is just one small molecular substance depositing in the blood. Therefore, creatinine does fall after dialysis treatment in most cases. However, this therapeutic effect may not be persistent, because dialysis only can replace kidney function during dialysis time but not improve kidney function. This is why creatinine level increases again during dialysis sessions.

Is dialysis irreplaceable to lower creatinine level?

Of course not. If you are still bothered by high creatinine level even after dialysis, you can try some other treatments.

- Blood purification: Compared with dialysis, it can remove all sizes of waste products.

- Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy: It shows a benefit on improving kidney function and increasing kidney output.

- Stem Cell Therapy: It is a potential therapy that can rebuild kidney structure and repair damaged kidney cells.

To lower creatinine level better, you can consult the online doctor to determine which treatment option is suitable for you.
