A doctor has provided 1 answer

Complicated: This is very difficult to answer because it's a complicated situation. Rather than answer, I would defer to whatever doctor knows her care the best. A sudden increase creatinine might be due to a reversible cause however Stage 4 CKD means chronic and irreversible.
