Hello! I'm Arjun and my father (age 59) is suffering from kidney disease, his current creatinine level is 6 mg/dl, he's having diabetes type 2, recently heart surgery also done to my father in which they kept a stunt in heart,! Now the problem is with kidney, does he needed dialysis now? And if yes what are the problems associated with it? Thank you.

lybrate-user, Sometimes due to surgery and dye given creatinine level increases, have a watch on this level if it's decreases no need of dialysis and if it's increasing and he has symptoms like blanching breathlessness, bradycardia, hyperkalemia, etc he would be requiring dialysis. No such side effects of it, just make sure you get it done from good dialysis centre where infection rates are less and nephrologist is available all the time to look after.
