What Does High Creatinine Level MeanSerum creatinine level normally fluctuates in the range of 0.5-1.3mg/dL, but in some cases, people may find their creatinine level in blood becomes higher than normal range. Why is this? What does high creatinine level mean?

What is creatinine?

Creatinine is a waste produced in the body and it is formed when we consum meat, including meat we eat and muscle. It belongs to small molecular substances and when it comes to kidney with bloodstream, it is leaked into urine. Therefore, kidney is responsible for a normal serum creatinine level.

What does high creatinine level mean?

Kidney is in charge of removing excess creatinine in the blood. Kidney failters less blood when it is damaged. Under such a condition, excess creatinine in the blood cannot be removed out of the body timely. Consequently, serum creatinine level increases. Therefore, in medicine, high creatinine level is an indicator of kidney problem.

Besides, kidney is made of a majority of cells called “nephrons” which is the basic cellular unit of the kidney. When a small part of nephrons are damaged, we still can live normally and also the residual kidney tissues are strong enough to maintain the normal serum creatinine level. Therefore, serum creatinine level is not high in early stage of kidney problem. According to clinical studies, creatinine level in blood begins to increase when at least a half of kidney tissues are injured. So high serum creatinine level always mean serious kidney damage.

How to reduce high creatinine level down to the normal range?

When there is high creatinine level in blood, many patients begin to ask for diet and hope to get their creatinine level down to the normal range through a specific diet. However, creatinine level becomes higher and higher as damaged kidney fail to remove excessive creatinine out of the body, so only when kidney funtion is improved, can high creatinine level be normalized permanently.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is the treatment used to improve kidney function. It is a herbal treatment and in this treatment, all the herbs are used externally which can avoid the possible side effects that appear with oral administration. So far this herbal treatment has been used to treat kidney disease patients from more than 64 countries and with the help of it, high creatinine level can be lowered down to the normal range fundamentally.

Lastly, high creatinine level means kidney problem, so when lab tests show elevation of serum creatinine, we need to be careful about our kidneys and also try to take treatment as soon as possible, so as to avoid the further increase of serum creatinine level.
