Re: Kidney function improvement
None of those numbers are too bad. Keep an eye on the rbcs (red blood cells) and hemoglobin. Anemia is common in kidney disease and you will feel better if it is managed. When you go on dialysis depends in part on how you feel. I didn't go on until my creatinine was about 8. The bun will rise some what too, but that won't come down that much even on most forms of dialysis, so I wouldn't worry too much.
Creatinine is a byproduct of muscle metablism. So when it builds up, it is an indicator of how well or how little your kidneys are filtering. So while there is damage, your numbers don't indicate a need for dialysis at this point.
