Dear Sir, When a patient needs Dialysis? I mean – For what value of Serum Creatinine?

Dialysis is performed for symptoms of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and is not usually based on a specific creatinine test.  The decision to perform dialysis is made by the patient in consultation with the nephrologist who is caring for him or her.
