Does High Creatinine Indicate Impaired Kidney Function

2014-03-31 23:12

As we all know, creatinine level is used as an indicator of kidney function. Does high creatinine level indicate impaired kidney function?

Kidneys are the important organs of our body. It functions to keep us healthy by cleaning the blood, secreting hormones and keeping balance of electrolyte and water. Without kidneys or when kidneys are impaired, our body will be in great disorder. Creatinine is the metabolic waste of muscles. It is supposed to be discharged by kidneys and stays a certain range in body. The normal range of creatinine is 0.5-1.2mg/dl. Because of the great compensatory ability of kidneys, creatinine will not present high unless half of kidney functions are lost.

But the creatinine level can be elevated in by other factors, for example, if you eat too much meat or do intense exercise, the creatinine level can also be elevated. But the high creatinine level will not last for a long time. If it sustains for a long time, then it may be an indicator of kidney damage. The creatinine level is a necessary index in the physical examination to detect how kidneys are functioning. What should you do with high creatinine level?

If you are detected with high creatinine level, you should take positive treatment. Developing a proper diet is the first step. Eating a low-protein diet and low-sodium diet can lower the burden of kidneys and reduce the risk of developing complications. Starting a diet plan with your doctor and save the kidneys for yourself.

Only diet is not enough. Some medical treatment must be applied if you want to treat it from the root. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is suggested. This is a natural therapy which aims at repairing the damaged kidney cells and improving kidney function. Once the impaired kidney function is improved, the excessive creatinine will be discharged.
