Will kidney Infection Cause Creatinine To Be Slightly Elevated

Will kidney Infection Cause Creatinine To Be Slightly ElevatedFor patients with kidney disease, a common condition in their body is high creatinine, which often indicates patient’s condition is very severe.

As a result, patients with any kidney problem may have this concern that whether their disease will cause their creatinine level to be high, so do patients with kidney infection.

What is kidney infection?

Our urinary system consists of ureters, urinary bladder, urethra and kidney, etc. Any part of urinary system can be infected by bacteria, and kidney can be infected as the bacteria ascends in urine system.

When kidney is infected, it is called upper urinary tract infection, which is also known as pyelonephritis.

Why patients with kidney disease have high creatinine?

Creatinine is a metabolic wastes of muscle, and it should be filtrated out through urine. Kidney filtrates out creatinine continuously, and our muscles and the meat we take can produce creatinine at the same, so creatinine level in our body changes in a stable range.

Many factors can affect our creatinine level, but for patients with kidney disease, high creatinine is used to reflect their kidney condition.

In fact, our kidney has strong metabolic ability and strong compensation, and half kidney function will be able to guarantee our body health. So, patients’ creatinine level will not be higher than normal until more than half kidney function is damaged, and that is a very severe condition.

Can kidney infection cause high creatinine?

Thereby, high creatinine in patient with kidney disease refers to patient’s severe kidney damage. Kidney infection can be divided into the acute and the chronic, both of them can cause damage to patient’s kidney.

In fact, most cases of acute kidney infection can be reversed if patient can accept right treatment timely, and that is more likely to appear in female, because their infection is more likely to be acute kidney infection. Patient’s creatinine level can be higher than normal when patient’s kidney function is lowered to a certain degree, but that can recover to normal when patient’s disease is treated.

While if patient gets chronic kidney infection, which can also be called as chronic pyelonephritis, their disease can not be reversed, and when patients’ kidney function is lowered greatly, they will have high creatinine.
