What Does Creatinine Level From 2.9 to 3.1 Mean

Posted: by Dr.Zhao      Time: 2014-10-04 08:22

Topics: High Creatinine Level

Details: I have high blood pressure and diabetes. My creatinine level is 2.9 mg/dl last month, but now it rises to 3.1. What does it mean?

Expert Answer

Serum creatinine level goes from 2.9 to 3.1 that is more likely to indicate your kidneys have been damaged, because you have a history of high blood pressure and diabetes.

If uncontrolled effectively, high blood pressure can cause increased pressure within capillaries of kidneys. Then, protein will leak from the body through kidneys that can cause further damage to kidney filtering system. When kidney filtration function is damaged, waste products including creatinine will build up in the body.

At present, diabetes is one leading cause of chronic kidney disease especially kidney failure, because high blood sugar can cause damage to kidney filtering system. Albumin urine is usually the first sign of diabetic kidney disease, also called Diabetic Nephropathy.

Creatinine level from 2.9 to 3.1 can reveal two conditions. The one is that you eat extra meat, do strenuous exercise or have overwork recently. In this case, the increase of high creatinine level is caused by unhealthy lifestyle. The other one is the aggravation of your kidney condition. Compared with other types of chronic kidney disease, Diabetic Nephropathy progresses more quickly.

In view of this, you had better take effective treatments to lower your high creatinine level and protect your kidneys actively.
