Does High Creatinine Level Mean Kidney Failure

Does High Creatinine Level Mean Kidney FailureNowadays, many people are detected with High Creatinine Levels and some of them mistakenly believe that the symptom is equal to Kidney Failure in some way. And the followings are explanations about this problem.

Kidney Failure refers to a partial or total loss of kidney function. In normal condition, kidneys work as blood- cleaners and they can filter waste products and excessive fluids from blood and maintain the stability of the inner body. When they are damaged, harmful substances will accumulate in the kidneys and later cause damage of intrinsic cells. In clinical, Kidney Failure also known as Stage 5 CKD. In this stage, the glomerular filtration rate of patients are lower than 15ml/min and the condition is serious.

Creatinine is a metabolic product of creatine from our muscles. Besides, foods can also produce some creatinine. Healthy kidneys can remove the creatinine in our blood and that accumulated in urine. In this way, creatinine level can be kept in a normal range. High creatinine levels usually indicate damage of glomerular filtration function.

If someone is diagnosed with Kidney Failure, his creatinine level must be high. However, high creatinine levels does not indicate Kidney Failure. He may be just in Stage 2 or Stage 3 CKD. In this case, the conditions of patients are controllable through effective and timely treatment, so dialysis or kidney transplant can be avoided. Therefore, if you have been diagnosed with high creatinine level, you should take effective treatments as soon as possible to prevent your disease from developing into Kidney Failure.
