Chronic Kidney Disease and High Creatinine LevelWhat does it mean when test reports show elevated creatinine level in blood? Through routine blood test, we can know if our creatinine level is in the normal range. Both low creatinine level and high creatinine level in blood are abnormal and when it is not in the normal range, we need to take some corresponding measures to normalize it. High creatinine level is an important indicator of Chronic Kidney Disease, so when test reports show elevated creatinine level, we need to concern about our kidney condition.

High creatinine level in blood indicates kidney problem

Elevation of serum creatinine is a sign of kidney problem. Creatinine is a by-product of normal muscle contractions, which becomes a chemical waste product filtered from the blood through the kidneys. Therefore, when kidney function is impaired, creatinine which should be excreted out of the body by kidney will build up in the blood. Under such a condition, if we do routine blood test, test report will show high creatinine level.

Is high creatinine level serious?

Creatinine level in blood increases when the decline of kidney function, which means the higher the kidney function, the poorer the kidney condition. Normal serum creatinine level should be in the range of 0.5-1.3mg/dL. According to clinical studies, serum creatinine level begins to increase when about a half of their kidney function is impaired. Therefore, elevation of creatinine level in blood indicates serious kidney problem.

Can high creatinine level be cured?

In cases of Chronic Kidney Disease, to get high creatinine level lowered down to the normal range, the treatment should start with improving kidney condition. Meanwhile, patients need to make some diet changes to make sure what they eat everyday are harmless to their kidney. Only when residual kidney function is strong enough to maintain the normal life, can creatinine level be cued and kept in the normal range.

A systematic treatment for high creatinine level includes improvement of kidney function, tight control of all the symptoms, diet changes and good nursing care. They are all indispensable and we can not receive satisfactory effects if any of them is lacking.
