    What Causes Creatinine To Rise In A Kidney Transplant

    2014-05-27 06:36| Font Size A A A

    What Causes Creatinine To Rise In A Kidney TransplantFor patients with kidney disease, creatinine is an important standard to know patient’s kidney function. When patient’s creatinine level is very high, that means patient’s kidney damage is very severe if it is due to kidney damage. And when patients’ kidney function is damaged severely, kidney transplant will be an important choice for them to prolong their lifetime.

    However, for patients who have accepted kidney transplant, it is common for them to have elevated creatinine level again. Well then, what cause creatinine to rise again in a kidney transplant?

    Why does high creatinine appear?

    High creatinine can be caused by many factors, but when patients have continuous high creatinine, it is caused by patient’s kidney damage.

    Creatinine is a substance which should be filtrated out by kidney, but when patient’s kidney function is reduced by kidney disease, there will be excess creatinine accumulating in patient’s body, which will cause patients to have high creatinine.

    However, it is not easy for patients to have high creatinine, unless more than half normal kidney function is damaged. That is because our kidney has strong metabolic ability, and half normal kidney function will be able to guarantee our body health.

    What cause kidney transplant patient’s creatinine level to be increased?

    A common cause of high creatinine in patients with kidney transplant is their body’s rejection reaction to their transplanted kidney. That will reduce the function of patient’s transplanted kidney. Besides, patients will need to take medicines to inhibit the rejection reaction in patient’s body, which will weaken patient’s immunity, and that will cause patient to be infected easily. While it is important for patients with kidney disease to prevent infection, which can reduce patient’s kidney function obviously.

    Besides, some kidney diseases can relapse even after patients have accept kidney transplant, and patient’s kidney function will be reduced again. As a result, patient’s creatinine level will increased again at this point.
