2013-01-01 15:02

I am diagnosed with stage 5 CKD and creatinine level increases to 5. However, in India, the cost dialysis is a big problem. I do not want to undergo dialysis because of limited financial resources of the family. Can I delay dialysis?

There is no a fast answer to your question. When dialysis is initiated relies on variables. Generally speaking, creatinine level reaches 5, the patients are recommended to start dialysis. Early dialysis treatment is important to preserve your remaining renal function and prolong life span. However, if the patients develop serious complications, they may be suggested to start dialysis earlier.

However, not all people with stage 5 CKD and creatinine 5 will start dialysis. If they have not serious problems and control their condition well by medicines, they can delay dialysis. Also, the following treatment and measures can help you delay it.


Control diet is a good way to delay dialysis. As kidneys are less efficient to remove wastes from body, you should keep a renal diet. Less potassium, sodium, protein and phosphorus should be contained in your diet.

Control blood pressure

High blood pressure can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease which is leading death cause of renal failure. You should use several types of medications to control your blood pressure. Meanwhile, control of hyperlipemia is also important.

Control related complications of stage 5 CKD

Anemia, nausea, nerve problem etc are commonly seen in stage 5 CKD. These problems afflict the patients so much. Usually, the patients are recommended to start dialysis due to these problems. Control of these problems can delay the onset of dialysis.


Creatinine 5 is not too high. It indicates that your kidneys still have partial function. If effective treatment is adopted, it can activate the self-regeneration of the impaired kidney structure and improve renal function to some extent. If you can stop the disease from further progressing, you will be able to avoid dialysis.
