    Does High Creatinine Level Cause GFR Rate to Be lowered

    2014-04-29 08:32| Font Size A A A

    Does High Creatinine Level Cause GFR Rate to Be loweredFor patients with kidney disease, creatinine and GFR are two important standards to learn about their renal condition. Most patients may understand that high creatinine is very dangerous, and the higher creatinine level is, the worse condition patient has. It is also a bad sign to see patient’s GFR to be reduced, and it has significant meaning if patient’s GFR can be improved. As a matter of fact, patients with kidney disease may have this curiosity: does high creatinine cause patient’s GFR rate to be lowered?

    What can we know from high creatinine and low GFR?

    creatinine is a substance which should be filtrated out by kidney, and it will not be reabsorbed by kidney tubule, so its level can reflect patient’s kidney function. As we know, patient’s kidney disease will damage patient’s kidney function, and when patient’s kidney function is damaged severely, creatinine will accumulate in patient’s body, which will cause patient’s creatinine level to increase.

    GFR refers to how much blood has been filtered by kidney, so its level can reflect patient’s kidney function. When patient’s kidney function is damaged by kidney, that will cause patient’s GFR to be lowered gradually.

    Does high creatinine cause GFR rate to be lowered?

    High creatinine is very dangerous, and GFR level is very important for patients with kidney disease. Well then, can high creatinine reduce patient’s GFR level?

    In fact, high creatinine is just a standard to reflect patient’s kidney function, which can reflect patient’s kidney function, but it will not cause damage to patient’s kidney function. GFR is also an important reflection of patient’s kidney function, when patient’s kidney function is damaged, patient’s GFR will be reduced. Thereby, there is no causal relationship between high creatinine and low GFR.

    In fact, high creatinine is dangerous because it is not easy for patients to have high creatinine unless more than half normal kidney function is damaged. Thereby, patient’s kidney damage is already very severe at this point.

    Kidney disease is dangerous, and it can cause many severe health problems. Thereby, patients should do their best to improve their condition.
