The normal range of creatinine
Normal range of creatinine in the blood is approximately 0.6 to 1.2 milligrams (mg) per deciliter (dL) in adult males and 0.5 to 1.1 milligrams per deciliter in adult females. Muscular young or middle-aged adults may have more creatinine in their blood than the norm for the general population. Elderly persons, on the other hand, may have less creatinine in their blood than the norm. Infants have normal levels of about 0.2 or more, depending on their muscle development.
A person with only one kidney may have a normal level of about 1.8 or 1.9. Creatinine levels that reach 2.0 or more in babies and 10.0 or more in adults may indicate severe kidney impairment.
What can high creatinine level tell?
Now that you have known the normal range of creatinine, if you find your creatinine level exceeds normal level, what does it mean? Because our kidneys have very strong compensatory ability, the creatinine level will not increase until about 40-50% of kidney function has been lost. Of course here we have left out other factors which can also affect the creatinine level, such as diet and heart problems. So the appearance of high creatinine level is enough to arouse your attention.
