my recent blood test shows serum creatinine 127mmol/L ( 70 to 115 mmol/L ).
that means my creatinine level has exceeded the normal level of 115.
I am worried and would like to know whether my creatinine level could further increase or not.
Until what level the creatinine reach to have dialysis performed?
U r nowhere near ready for the dialysis machine! Your level is only slightly above normal, but it is an indicator that more investigation is needed. The level CAN go up from here, but it could return to normal, depends on what the cause is. You need to have a series of levels done, as one is not really indicative of the problem. If it remains raised u will need other tests eg for protein in urine, blood in urine, kidney or urinary tract infection. Maybe an ultrasound. Try not to worry too much at this stage. Return to the doctor and have the extra tests needed. Good luck
