What Happens When Your Creatinine Level Is Too High

What Happens When Your Creatinine Level Is Too High Creatinine level is an important standard to assess patient’s kidney condition, and high creatinine often indicates patient has severe kidney damage. While, what if patient’s creatinine level is too high?

Why does high creatinine often indicate severe kidney damage?

Creatinine is a breakdown product of muscle, and it should be filtrated out from our blood by kidney. So, when patient has high creatinine, it may mean patient’s kidney function has been damaged by his kidney disease.

While our kidneys have strong metabolic ability and compensation, and half normal kidney function will be able to guarantee our body health. So, if patient finds his creatinine level is high, and if that is caused by patient’s kidney damage, that will indicate more than half kidney function has been damaged.

High creatinine level means patient already has high creatinine, so if patient’s creatinine level is too high, what will happen?

What’s more, when patient’s kidney disease has progressed into the end stage, patient’s kidney function will be damaged severely, and lots of metabolic wastes and toxins will accumulate in patient’s body.
