    What Does A Creatinine Level of 2.8 Mean

    2014-09-07 02:25| Font Size A A A

    What Does A Creatinine Level of 2.8 MeanWhat does a creatinine level of 2.8 mean? Actually, creatinine is one of indicators to diagnose whether you have kidney disease or not. Usually, high creatinine level is a kidney-related problem. Well then, how about creatinine 2.8?

    Creatinine refers to the metabolic product of muscular activity and the meat we eat. Our normal kidneys work to filter creatinine out of the body. In this way, creatinine level is kept in a normal range. However, for kidney disease patients, the damaged kidneys can’t do this job well and excess creatinine will pile up in the body, causing high creatinine level. Since our kidneys have strong compensatory ability and high creatinine level does not occur until more than half of kidney function is damaged. Therefore, any high creatinine level is worth your worry, including creatinine 2.8. Why?

    The normal value is 0.6-1.2mg/dL for male and 0.5-1.1mg/dL for female. It is obvious that creatinine 2.8 is higher than the reasonable value. It means you are in the Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). In this stage, there is moderate drop on renal function and patients may experience the following symptoms such as protein or blood in the urine, swelling, high blood pressure, freauent urine, urgent urine, anemia, itching, poor appetite, nausea, vomiting and so on.

    How to reduce it for kidney disease patients?

    Diet principles

    For kidney disease patients, they should follow a kidney-friendly diet which refers to low salt diet, low protein diet, low potassium and low phosphorus, high calcium diet and high vitamin diet.

    Tightly control symptoms

    Tightly controlling these symptoms like high blood pressure, hematuria, anemia and so on, is beneficial for preventing further kidney damage and also helpful for reducing high creatinine.
