Does High Creatinine Always Indicate Kidney Failure

Does High Creatinine Always Indicate Kidney FailureDoes high creatinine always indicate kidney failure? Patient with high creatinine may have this worry. While it is necessary for patients who are facing with this problem to have a better understanding about this aspect, which is helpful for them to deal with their condition.

What is creatinine?

Creatinine is the metabolic product of muscles. It can be produced by the muscles of our body, and it can also be gotten from the meat we take. Creatinine is a toxin to our body, which will be excreted out by kidney, and it will not be reabsorbed back to blood by kidney tubule, so it can reflect patient’s kidney condition.

Does high creatinine always indicate kidney failure?

As we know, patients with kidney failure means there is kidney damage in their kidneys, and for patients whose kidney function is not able to complete their work, the wastes and toxins in blood will accumulate, and creatinine is among them, so patient will have high creatinine. In fact, high creatinine in this condition is due to the loss of kidney’s filtration function, so it will always exist unless kidney function is improved.

In fact, except for kidney failure, high creatinine can also be caused by many other reasons. As we know, creatine is the metabolic product of muscle, and if patient takes much meat, he will have high creatinine. Besides, if patient do much exercise, his serum creatinine level will also rise. And many other reasons can also cause patient t have high creatinine. While in these cases, patient’s high creatinine is not an indication of kidney failure. In fact, high creatinine of these cases will not exist for a long time.

Thereby, high creatinine does not always indicate kidney failure. While for patients with high creatinine, they should have lab tests to make sure whether their high creatinine is caused by kidney failure or other reasons, so they will not take measures blindly.
