How Low Does Kidney Function Need to Be for DialysisFor people with advanced kidney failure, dialysis can extend their life. How low does kidney function need to be for dialysis? In this article, you will get the answer.

Generally speaking, you need dialysis when you develop end stage kidney failure - usually by the time you lose about 85% to 90% of your kidney function and have a GFR< 15. But this is not a strict standard. If your GFR is between 5 to 15, as long as you do not have any severe symptoms and complications, you can use some conservative treatment rather than dialysis to maintain your life. But once your GFR is less than 5, no matter you have symptoms or complications or not, you need to start dialysis immediately, otherwise your life may be threatened.

Moreover, it can help you train good living habits so as to reinforce the effect and reduce its relapse.
