High Creatinine Level Causes, Symptoms and Treatments

High Creatinine Level Causes, Symptoms and TreatmentsCreatinine is a kind of metabolic wastes in our body. Creatinine level is an index to measure how well your kidneys are working. High creatinine level signifies your kidney is suffering from a damage and can’t work effectively. There is an introduction from our nephrologists about causes, symptoms and treatments of high creatinine level, hoping it’s helpful to you.

Causes of high creatinine level

Creatinine is a kind of metabolic wastes, like uric acid and urea. Normally, these metabolic wastes can be filtered by kidneys and discharged with urine. If the kidney is impaired and can’t work normally, these metabolic wastes can’t be excreted and accumulate in blood. So when kidney is damaged, creatinine level will go up and according to the creatinine level, we can know the degree of kidney damage.

Besides, many other conditions such as dehydration, strenuous exercise, overwork, high blood pressure, etc, all can cause the elevation of creatinine level.

Symptoms of high creatinine level

Water metabolic disorder: diuresis, dehydration, swelling, high blood pressure, pneumonedema, urine amount changes, etc.

Potassium metabolic disorder: hyperkalemia or hypokalemic.

Sodium metabolic disorder: hypernatremia or hyponatremia.

Metabolic acidosis: fatigue, lethargy, nausea or vomiting, loss of appetite, weight changes, shortness of breath, etc.

Treatment for high creatinine level

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy:

All drugs used in this therapy is traditional Chinese medicines, which have few side effects. Super-shattered medicines have efficacies of anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation, expanding blood vessel and degrading extracellular matrix. Patients’ kidney function gets improved. Metabolic wastes could get excreted. Creatinine level will be close to normal.

Dietary treatment:

As high creatinine occurs, more than half of the kidney may be impaired. So we have to reduce metabolic wastes from the beginning---diet. Patients should keep a strick diet on sodium, phosphorus and protein to alleviate the burden of kidney. Besides, it is necessary to avoid creatine supplement and limit the meat intake.


This is the most common therapy for kidney disease. Artificial kidney replace the kidney to filter the metabolic wastes. This can lower the creatinine level directly, but patients has to rely on dialysis.

Oral medications:

Some medications like ketosteril can also help lower high creatinine level. If patients’ creatinine level is not so high, they can reduce their creatinine level through taking some oral medicines.
