Should I Worry When My Creatinine Level Is At The Upper Limit

Details: I have chronic kidney disease and a history of diabetes. Now, my creatinine level is at the upper limit. Should I worry about this?

Expert Answer

Normally, serum creatinine level ranges from 0.5 to 1.1 mg/dl for female and 0.6 to 1.2 mg/dl for male. In addition to gender, the body size, age, physical activity, race, and some other factors also affect the value of creatinine level.

Generally, for healthy people, they don’t need to worry a lot about their medical condition, when their creatinine level reaches the upper limit. This is because the upper limit is still in the safe range. However, if the increase of serum creatinine level is accompanied by some symptoms such as back pain, blood urine, foamy urine, and so on, the person should do more test to determine whether they have kidney problem. To know what test to do, you can consult the Doctor online.

However, for CKD patients, they should pay highly attention to their creatinine changes, because increased creatinine level is more likely to indicate the aggravation of kidney condition and overall health condition. If necessary, some treatments are needed to control patients’ creatinine level and reverse kidney damage. Otherwise, serum creatinine level may become higher than the upper limit quickly. Remember the earlier to take treatments, the better.
