What is the condition of kidney with 6.8 creatinine


What is the condition of kidney with 6.8 creatinineCreatinine is a common standard to assess patient’s kidney condition, and high creatinine always indicates severe kidney damage. While what is the condition of kidney with 6.8 creatinine?

What is creatinine and the normal creatinine level?

To understand the kidney condition of 6.8 creatinine, it is necessary to know what is creatinine.

Creatinine is the metabolic waste of muscle, and it is a toxin to our body, so it will be filtered out by our kidney.

Creatinine level in our blood changes in a stable range. For man it is 0.6~1.2 mg/dL, and for woman it is 0.5~1.1mg/dL.

Why patient has high creatinine level?

The metabolism of creatinine can be affected by many factors, like diet, exercise, blood flow, etc. While in most cases, high creatinine caused by these factors will not exist for a long time.

But if patient’s high creatinine is caused by kidney damage, it will be a dangerous sign. Our kidney has strong metabolism, and one kidney will be able to complete kidney’s work. Besides, our kidneys have strong compensation, and if any part of our kidney is damaged, other parts will replace this part to complete kidney work. Thereby, patient will not have high creatinine unless more than half kidney function is damaged.

What is the condition of kidney with 6.8 creatinine?

6.8 is a much higher creatinine level, and for patient with 6.8 creatinine, his kidney must be severely damaged.

In fact, patient’creatinine level will not have obvious rise until the damaged kidney function reaches two thirds. On the other hand, for most patients, if their creatinine level reaches 5mg/dL, dialysis will be recommended, which means patient may already be in the end stage of kidney disease, and patient’s GFR level may be lower than 15ml/min.

These above are the introduction of patient’s kidney condition when patient’s creatinine level is 6.8. While if you have any problem in dealing with this aspect, you can contact our online experts, and we are glad to help you.
