    Should I Be Worried about Creatinine Level 1.4 in PKD

    2014-03-30 06:41| Font Size A A A

    Should I Be Worried about Creatinine Level 1.4 in PKDPolycystic Kidney Disease means lots of kidney cysts will grow in patient’s kidneys, and they will damage patient’s kidney structure gradually, and patient’s kidney function will be reduced in this process. On the other hand, creatinine level is a reflection of patient’s kidney function. Well then, if a patient with PKD has high creatinine 1.4, should he be worried about his condition?

    What can we know from patients’ creatinine level?

    Our kidneys have the function of removing the metabolic wastes out from our body, and creatinine is a metabolic waste of muscle, which is toxic to our body, and it should be filtrated out by kidney.

    In fact, nephrons consist of glomeruli, kidney tubules, and renal capsule. When blood is filtrated by glomeruli, many metabolic wastes will be reabsorbed back to blood by kidney tubule. But creatinine is a substance that little can not be absorbed by kidney tubule, and almost all creatinine produced by our muscles can be filtrated out in the same day, so its level in our body can reflect patient’s kidney function.

    Should PKD patient be worried if their creatinine level is 1.4?

    For healthy people, their creatinine level changes in a stable range, and that is 0.5~1.3mg/dL. Thereby, if patient with PKD has creatinine level 1.4, it is a little higher than normal.

    Patient may think his kidney damage is not very severe if his creatinine level is 1.4, while this is a wrong thought. Our kidney has strong metabolic ability, and half normal kidney function will be able to guarantee our body health. That is, if patient with PKD find his creatinine level is 1.4, it means at least more than half kidney function has been damaged.

    Thereby, patient’s condition is already very severe at this point, and patients should do what they can to protect their kidney function and improve their overall health at this point.
