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?
