    MY Serum Creatinine Is 1.8, What Stage Is It

    2014-05-24 06:35| Font Size A A A

    MY Serum Creatinine Is 1.8, What Stage Is ItChronic kidney disease is a progressive disease, and patient’s kidney function will be damaged gradually, which can cause many abnormal signs and symptoms. In fact, high creatinine is a dangerous sign, which indicates severe kidney damage. The higher creatinine level is, the severer kidney damage patient has.

    CKD is divided into five stages, and when patient’s kidney damage is severer, his CKD stage is further. Well then, if patient has creatinine level 1.8, what stage is it?

    Why is high creatinine dangerous?

    creatinine is an important indicator of patient’s kidney condition, because it is not easy for patients to have high creatinine.

    Our kidney has strong metabolic ability, and it also has strong compensation. In fact, if we have half normal kidney function, our body will not have health problems caused by kidney damage, and that is why people can donate one of their kidneys.

    creatinine is a metabolic waste of muscle, and it should be filtrated out by kidney. Because it will not be reabsorbed by kidney tubule, so its level in blood can reflect patient’s kidney function. As a result, it is not easy for patients with CKD to have high creatinine, unless the damaged kidney function reaches half.

    What stage is it if patient has creatinine 1.8?

    For healthy people, their creatinine range is 0.5~1.2mg/dL, and creatinine level 1.8 is a little higher than normal.

    As we have said, patients will not have high creatinine unless the damaged kidney function reaches half, which means patients are at least in stage 3 CKD. Besides, it is not easy for patient’s creatinine to be obviously high, unless the damaged kidney function reaches two thirds, which is also due to the stong metabolic ability of kidney. Thereby, when patient has creatinine level 1.8, he is in CKD stage 3, and he is very likely to be in CKD stage 3a.
