What Does High Creatinine Mean

To learn what high creatinine means, it is necessary to understand what is creatinine first.

Creatinine is the metabolic product of muscle, and it is toxic to our body. Creatinine in our blood can be produced by our body muscles, and it can also be gotten from the meat we take, while creatinine gotten from the meat can make little influence to our serum creatinine level. Creatinine will be excreted out of body by kidney, and almost all creatinine produced by ourselves will be filtered out in the same day, so our serum creatinine level can stay in a stable range. Besides, little creatinine will be reabsorbed back to blood by kidney tubule, so it can be a measure to assess patient’s kidney condition.

There are obvious difference in the muscle volume between man and woman, so the normal creatinine level in man and in woman is also different. The normal creatinine level in man is 0.6~1.2 mg/dL, and the normal creatinine level in woman is 0.5~1.1 mg/dL. If people’s creatinine level is more than these values, people will be thought to have high creatinine, even if people’s creatinine level is just a little higher.
