Does Creatinine 12 Mean Kidney Failure

2013-04-25 11:06

It is widely known that high creatinine level means for kidney problem, and the higher the creatinine level, the severe the illness condition. However, for one with serum creatinine level 12, does it mean kidney failure?

High creatinine level in blood can be used as an index to reflect how well the kidney function, as excess creatinine can be normally discharged by our kidney. High creatinine level means these creatinine are not excretly timely and effectively by kidney. On the basis of this, we can infer there is something wrong with kidney.

Reference value of serum creatinine differs from country to country, and even hospital to hospital, but generally, it is in the range of 0.5-1.3mg/dL. Creatinine is the end product of meat and muscle in our body, so creatinine level fluctuates with changes of diet and muscle mass, but generally it changes in the normal range. Creatinine 12 means there are a large mass of creatinine in blood which should have been discharged by kidneys. Under such a condition, patient is almost certainly suffering from kidney failure.

With creatinine 12 caused by kidney failure, dialysis is required to purify blood. Creatinine is just one of the toxins produced by our body. Elevated creatinine level means kidneys have failed to function properly, and in such a case, aside from creatinine, there must be lots of other toxins in blood. These toxins threaten other internal organs and may cause lots of further health tissues.

Dialysis is necessary for life safety, but it only helps to clean blood and is unable in improving kidney function, so it is not a long-term solution. There is no other option aside from dialysis and kidney transplant for kidney failure patients whose creatinine level has increased to 12 and meanwhile has no urine output. However, for kidney failure patients who still have urine output, there is alternative treatment-Immunotherapy in clinic.

Immunotherapy combines western medicines and Chinese medicines and show great treatment effects on kidney failure patients with urine output. With Immunotherapy, kidney intrinsic cells which are injured mildly can be repaired to perform function again, so after this treatment, patient’s kidney function can be improved to some extent. As long as kidney function gets improved, creatinine level is lowered effectively.
