Patient: What level kidney function does your kidneys have to be at before they put you on dialysis?
Doctor: generally, if your kidney function is below 10%, dialysis is
considered. Simply speaking, you may also need dialysis if the following
requirements are met:
2.Serum BUN: ：≥35mmol/L(97.6mg/dl)
3.Serum Creatinine: ：≥884μmol/L(10mg/dl)
4.When your diseases are just right in the stage of acute rapid decline(Serum
Creatinine higher than 530.4μmol/L or 6mg/dl), dialysis is needed.
5. Decline of renal function accompanied by severe metabolic
acidosis(PH<7.2) or severe anemia.
In fact, there are no specific criterions for dialysis. In reality, whether
dialysis is needed not only depends on the kidney functions, but depends on the
general conditions of the patients.
