Kidney stone is a common kidney disease. Patients with kidney stone will have many severe symptoms, such as blood urine, pain in their back, nausea and vomit, etc. On the other hand, we know that high creatinine level means there are severe damage in patients’ kidneys. So many patients with kidney stone have this worry: can kidney stone cause creatinine level to rise?
Why creatinine level rise?
To know whether kidney stone can cause creatinine level to rise, we should know why it rise first.
Creatinine is the production of muscles. We can produce it by our own body, and we can also get it from the meat we take. It is a metabolic waste, which will be excreted out by our kidneys. Because kidneys can regulate the amount of creatinine, its level in our blood changes in a stable range, and almost all creatinine can be excreted out in the same day.
But to patients with kidney failure, their kidneys are damaged. While kidney have strong compensation, so the creatinine level would not rise until more than half kidney function is damaged. So when kidney failure patients have continuous high creatinine, it means they already have very severe kidney damage.
Can kidney stone cause creatinine level high?
kidney stone can also cause kidney damage, and that is why some patients worry whether is can cause creatinine level to rise. In fact, if kidney stone has not been well treated, it can cause hydronephrosis. Hydronephrosis can damage kidney structure severely, and then reduce the kidney function, which may cause the creatinine level to rise.
On the other hand, if right measures are taken timely, kidney stone is able to be controlled. Besides, as kidney stone can take many obvious symptoms to patients, so when patients get this disease, it is easy for them to realize it. As long as patients accept effect treatment in time, it is not easy for them to have severe kidney damage.
In addition, if patients have kidney failure, kidney stone will aggravate their condition greatly, and in this time, it may cause the creatinine level to rise.
All in all, patients should have positive treatment if they find they have kidney stone.
