    Is It Dangerous If My Creatinine Level Is A Little Higher Than Normal

    2014-05-14 01:03| Font Size A A A

    Is It Dangerous If My Creatinine Level Is A Little Higher Than NormalFor patients with kidney disease, they should pay much attention to their creatinine level, which is a significant standard to learn about patient’s kidney function. Well then, if patient’s creatinine level is just a little higher than normal, is it dangerous?

    What is the normal creatinine range?

    Creatinine is a breakdown product of muscle, and it is toxic to our body, which should be filtrated out by kidney. Our muscles will produce creatinine continuously, and our kidney will filtrated it out at the same time. In fact, almost all creatinine produced by our body can be filtrated out by our kidney in the same day.

    As a result, creatinine in our body can stay in a stable range, and it is 0.5~1.1mg/dL for woman, and it is 0.6~1.2mg/dL for man. Kidney disease will damage patient’s kidney function gradually, and when patient’s kidney function is low enough, creatinine will accumulate in patient’s body and cause high creatinine.

    Is it dangerous if patient’s creatinine level is a little higher than normal?

    High creatinine is mainly due to low kidney function due to kidney damage. Usually, if patient’s creatinine level is just a little higher than normal, they may think their kidney damage is not very severe.

    However, it is not easy for patients to have high creatinine, because our kidney has strong metabolic ability. In fact, if patient has half normal kidney function, he will not have high creatinine caused by kidney damage. It is also to say if patients have high creatinine, that means at least half normal kidney function has been damaged. Thereby, it is already very dangerous at this point. On the other hand, patient may still not have obvious symptom caused by his kidney damage due to the strong metabolic ability of kidney.
