    What Creatinine Level Indicates Kidney Problems

    What Creatinine Level Indicates Kidney Problems Creatinine level is usually taken as one indicator to reflect kidney function. And it can become higher and higher with loss of renal function. Well then, what creatinine level indicates kidney problems?

    Normal creatinine level for people.

    As the waste product of body muscle, creatinine should be filtered by the healthy kidneys. Usually, women have lower creatinine levels compared to men because women has less muscle tissues. It is reported that among adults without kidney disease, men have approximately 0.6 to 1.2 milligrams/deciliters (mg/dl) of creatinine, whereas women have between 0.5 to 1.1mg/dl of creatinine level.

    Creatinine level and chronic kidney disease

    When there is kidney damage or kidney disease, then, the kidneys are not able to filter wastes efficiently, there will likely to be a rise in creatinine levels in the blood. Generally speaking, if the creatinine level is in 5.1-7.9mk/dL or 442-707umol/L, we will say it is Kidney Failure. For babies with kidney disease, dialysis is recommended when their creratinine level is 2.0mg/dl. As a matter of fact, it is not very appropriate to use creatinine level to indicate kidney damage. Because creatinine level cannot timely reflect the early stage of kidney disease. Because creatinine level won’t increase until more than 50% of kidney function has been damaged.

    The more suitable index is glomerular filtration rate (GFR). According to GFR level, chronic kidney disease is divided into five stages. If a person ‘s GFR decreases to 15-30ml/min, we will say the condition is in Stage 4 CKD or Kidney Failure.
