Does having high creatinine level make you tired?

It is common for high creatinine level patients to experience tiredness and that is because high creatinine level indicates kidney problem which make patients tired easily.

Creatinine is a waste produced in the body. Together with some other toxins, they are excreted out of the body with urine while they flow through kidney with blood. Therefore, a healthy kidney plays a very important role for normal serum creatinine level. Also, for this reason, creatinine level in blood is usually measured to reflect kidney condition.

Apart from purifying blood, kidney is also in charge of secrete some hormones needed by our body. One of the hormones secreted by kidney is EPO (erythropoietin) which is essential for the production of red blood cell. When kidney is damaged and secrete less EPO, less red blood cells are produced. Red blood cells transport oxygen throughout the body, so we become tired easily when red blood cell account in blood is less.

Other symptoms that high creatinine level patients may experience

For people with high creatinine level caused by kidney problem, apart from tiredness, they also experience some other symptoms like foamy urine, blood urine, poor appetite, frequent urination, less urine output, swelling, nausea, vomiting, dry skin, skin itching, bone pain and even insomnia.

Creatinine level in blood reflects kidney condition. In general, the higher the serum creatinine level, the poorer the kidney function. Therefore, with the elevation of creatinine level, all these symptoms, including tiredness, will become more and more serious.

All these symptoms actually are resulted from impairment of kidney function, so for high creatinine level patients, only when their kidney function is improved, can these discomforts be alleviated effectively. Besides, kidney is responsible for excreting excess creatinine in blood, so when kidney function is improved, serum creatinine level decreases as well.
