What Does A Serum Creatinine Above Normal Range MeanIs high serum creatinine dangerous?

High serum creatinine level may be a dangerous sign in most cases, but it may not be a dangerous sign because creatine level can be affected by many factors.

Creatinine is the metabolic product of muscles. It can be produced by the muscles of ourselves, and it can also be gotten from the meat we take in diet. In some cases, high creatinine will not be a dangerous sign for patient. For example, if patient just has taken strenuous exercise, his muscles will produce lots of creatinine, which will cause him has a high serum creatinine level. if patient take a lot of meat in his diet, high creatinine level will also appear in his blood test. Besides, if patient has lost much body fluid due to some reasons like vomiting, perspiration, his serum creatinine level will also be higher than the normal range. In fact, in these cases, patient’s high creatinine is not a dangerous sign, because patient’s high creatinine level will decrease to normal level by taking right measures, and then patient’s high creatinine level will not be persistent.

In fact, creatinine level will not have obvious rise even half kidney function is damaged and its obvious rise will appear when about two thirds kidney function is damaged.
