Can High Creatinine Level Patients Drink Alcohol

Can High Creatinine Level Patients Drink AlcoholAlcohol is such one drink that is beneficial to some extent if people drink a small amount occasionally. However, losing control over the consumption amount will lead to a series of health problem. Well, for patients with high creatinine level, can they still drink alcohol?


Creatinine is generated from creatine during muscular metabolism. Normally, serum creatinine level is quite stable for health people that ranges from 0.5 to 1.2mg/dl. The elevation of high creatinine level may be attributed to dehydration, cardiovascular disease, overwork, strenuous exercise, and so on, but in most cases, high creatinine level is caused by kidney disease.

Lastly, alcohol addiction has a dangerous effect on the central nervous system, and alcohol affects the ability of brain and the emotional function severely.

The above are only a part of side effects caused by drinking extra amount of alcohol. From the above analysis, we can know people with high creatinine level should pay highly attention to their alcohol consumption.
