What Does An Elevated Creatinine Level In The Blood Suggest

What Does An Elevated Creatinine Level In The Blood SuggestThe creatinine level in blood is an important method in assessing patient’s kidney condition, and many patents may understand that high serum creatinine level is a dangerous sign. While what on earth does an elevated creatinine level in the blood suggest?

What is creatinine?

Creatinine is the metabolic product of muscles. It may be produced by the muscles of our body, and it may be gotten from the meat we take. Creatinine is a toxin to our body, and it will be excreted out by kidney, and kidney tubule will not reabsorb it, so its level in blood can reflect kidney condition.

In fact, almost all creatinine produced by our muscles will be filtered out in the same day, and our serum creatinine level changes in a stable range.

What does high serum creatinine level indicate?

For patient whose high serum creatinine level is caused by his kidney disease, that will be a dangerous sign.

Kidney has strong compensation, and patient will not have any problem caused by kidney damage unless more than half kidney function is damaged. It is also to say patient’s serum creatinine level will stay in its stable range even patient already has kidney damage. While if high serum creatinine level appears, it may suggest that there are more than half kidney function is already been damaged, which is a severe condition.

What’s more, patient with kidney damage will not have obvious high creatinine level until more than two thirds kidney function is damaged.

On the other hand, many factors can affect patient’s creatinine level. For example, patient’s creatinine level will rise if he eat much meat, and strenuous exercise will also cause patient to have obvious high creatinine.

Thereby, if patient who has kidney disease find he has high creatinine, he should pay careful attention to his health condition.
