If Your Creatinine Is 5, How Much Kidney Function Do You Have

If Your Creatinine Is 5, How Much Kidney Function Do You HaveFor patients with kidney disease, a problem they have to deal with is high creatinine, which often indicates severe kidney damage.

For healthy people, their creatinine level changes in a stable range. While for patients with kidney disease, the higher his creatinine level is, the severer kidney damage patient has.

Well then, if a patient has creatinine level 5, how much kidney function does he has?

What can we know if patient has high creatinine?

Creatinine is toxic to our body, and it should be filtrated out by kidney. So, when patient’s kidney function is too low to filtrate out the metabolic wastes in patient’s blood, that will also cause the accumulation of creatinine, which can lead to high creatinine.

However, it is not easy for patients with kidney disease to have high creatinine, because our kidney has strong metabolic ability and compensation. In fact, half normal kidney function will be able to guarantee our body health, and it is also to say if patient has high creatinine, we can learn that more than half normal kidney function has already been damaged.

How much kidney function do you have if you have creatinine level 5?

The normal creatinine range in our body is 0.5~1.3mg/dL, so creatinine level 5 is much higher than normal.

Creatinine level is a standard to assess patient’s condition. In fact, for most patients, when their creatinine level reaches 5, their doctor will recommend them to accept dialysis. On the other hand, whether patient need dialysis is also decided by how much left kidney function patient has, and if patient has about 15% remaining kidney function, his doctor will also recommend him to accept dialysis, which means patient’s condition is going into the end stage. So, if patient has high creatinine 5, he may have about 15% remaining kidney function.

Thereby, patients should take measures to deal with their condition as early as possible. And if you have any trouble in dealing with your disease, you can leave us a message, we will do what we can to help you.
