Your grandfather's creatinine is very high,and he is most certainly going into renal failure.This is diabetic nephropathy and caused due to diabetes.I dont belive dialysis can be avoided.Medically you cant call him asymptomtic with a creat of 8,as soon his output will be nil.He will need dialysis sooner rather than later.
