Causes of high creatinine levels

1. Dehydration or inadequate water intake such as high fever, sweating, diuresis can cause blood concentration and reduced blood flow in the kidneys. Creatinine will increase.

2. Over-tiredness, lack of rest can cause elevation of creatinine level.

3. Urine abnormalities such as long term hematuria, proteinuria can be accompanied by high creatinine.

4. Intake of drugs that have renal toxicity can cause high creatinine which can even be irreversible.

5. If renal dysfunction patients have infections such as cold, pneumonia, intestinal infection, urinary tract infections can increase creatinine level in short time.

6. Badly controlled high blood pressure can cause high creatinine.

7. Kidney disease patients with recurrent illness conditions can have high creatinine levels.

But, dialysis is jut a replacement of kidney to excrete small size of toxins, it is not a treatment for kidney disease and your urine output becomes less and less as your are on dialysis. 

Kidney Transplant. Kidney transplant can enable the patients new kidney functions, but there is always a chance that transplanted kidney rejects your body tissues. When the kidney is failed, what kinds of choices would you make? Back to dialysis or seek for another kidney ?
