What Is Considered A High Creatinine Level

What Is Considered A High Creatinine LevelHigh creatinine may be a dangerous sign, while what on earth is considered a high creatinine level?

Creatinine level is a common standard to assess patient’s kidney condition. To know what is considered a high creatinine level, it is necessary for patient to have a better understanding about creatinine.

What is creatine and what is normal creatinine level?

Creatinine is the metabolic product of muscles, and it is a toxin to body, which will be filtered out by kidney. Except for the creatinine produced by our muscles, creatinine in our blood can also be gotten from the meat we take, but it will not cause great influence to creatinine level. In normal condition, almost all creatinine produced by our body muscles will be filtered out in the same day. As a result, the creatinine level in our blood can change in a stable range. The normal creatinine level of man is 0.6~1.2mg/dL, and the normal creatinine level in woman is 0.5~1.1mg/dL.

Thereby, if patient’s creatinine level is more than this level, it means he has high creatinine level.

Is high creatinine level a bad sign?

Whether high creatinine is a bad sign depends on patient’s condition. If a healthy person has high creatinine, it may be nothing serious. But when this symptom appear in patient with kidney disease, it may be a dangerous sign.

Creatinine is a metabolic product of muscles, and many factors can affect its level. For example, if a person eat much meat, his creatinine level will rise, and if a person take strenuous exercise, his creatinine level will also rise. And these factors may also appear in patient with kidney disease, which may mistake patient’s judgement of his condition. In fact, in these conditions, patient’s high creatinine level will not exist for a long time.

If patient’s high creatinine is caused by kidney damage, it means patient already has severe kidney failure. Because kidney has well metabolic ability, and half healthy kidney function will be able to complete its work, so patient will not have high creatinine level until more than half kidney function is damaged. And high creatinine level caused by this reason is continuous.

Thereby, if patent with kidney disease find he has a high creatinine level, he should make clear whether it is caused by kidney failure. And if have any problem in dealing with this question, you can also contact us, and we are glad to help you.
