    How Serious Can High Creatinine Level Affect Patients

    How Serious Can High Creatinine Level Affect Patients High Creatinine Level is usually taken as a fairly reliable indicator of kidney function. Elevated creatinine level signifies impaired kidney function or kidney disease. Well then, how serious can high creatinine level affect patients?

    Creatinine is a chemical waste molecule that is generated from muscle metabolism. And the kidneys filter out of the most of the creatinine and dispose of it in the urine. Because the muscle mass in the body is relatively constant from day to day, the creatinine production normally remains essentially unchanged on a daily basis. In clinic, creatinine level generally won’t increase until a half of renal function has been damaged.

    If the elevated creatinine level is caused by kidney disease or kidney failure, other symptoms will accompany you.

    1. Nausea and vomiting

    2. Dizziness or headache

    3. Fatigue and Weakness

    4. Poor appetite

    5. Weight Loss

    6. Itching

    7. Protein in urine or blood in urine

    8. Swelling in hands and feet

    9. Frequent or painful urination

    10. Hypertension or high blood pressure

    Through the above analysis, we can see that high creatinine level can induce more serious conditions. In addition, once creatinine level increases to 5 or above, then, Dialysis will be recommended to patients. I believe you can image that how serious creatinine level affect patients.

    Now, the important thing is to how to prevent the severe conditions.

    1. Diet therapy

    -it is important to reduce or even avoid creatine supplement.

    -having a low-protein diet can help reduce kidneys’ burden and protect remaining renal function.

    -low-sodium diet can help patients ease swelling and lower high blood pressure

    -drinking enough water can help increase urine output and wastes will be discharged along with the urination.

    2. Chinese medicine treatment
