    Does Mild High Creatinine Mean Kidney Function Is Mildly Damaged

    2014-03-28 02:26| Font Size A A A

    Does Mild High Creatinine Mean Kidney Function Is Mildly Damaged For patients with kidney disease, a problem that they can not avoid is high creatinine, which is an indication of their kidney function.

    Patients with kidney disease may know that high creatinine is a bad sign, and if creatinine level of patients with kidney disease is mildly increased, does that mean patient’s kidney function is mildly damaged?

    Why creatinine level has significant meaning for patients’ kidney function?

    Creatinine is a metabolic waste of muscle, and it should be filtrated out by kidney. As we can imagine, if patient’s kidney function is reduced by kidney disease, and when patient’s kidney function is not able to filtrate out the metabolic wastes adequately, patient’s creatinine level will rise, and patients will have high creatinine level.

    In fact, kidney tubule has the function of reabsorption, so most fluid and nutrients will reabsorbed back to blood, but creatinine is a substance which will not be reabsorbed by kidney tubule, so its level in blood can reflect patient’s kidney function.

    Does mild high creatine mean kidney function is mildly damaged?

    When patients with kidney disease find they have mild high creatinine, they may think their kidney function is just damaged mildly. However, this is absolutely wrong.

    Kidney has stong metabolic ability, and patient’s creatinine level will not be higher if only patients have more than half normal kidney function. Thereby, if patient’s creatinine level is a mildly higher, that means more than half kidney function has already been damaged, which is already very severe.

    Chronic kidney disease is not easy for patients to realize its existence when they are in the early stage, so it is important for patients to take measures as early as possible to deal with their problems.
