What Are the Side Effects of Creatinine Level 12

2014-10-25 10:27

What Are the Side Effects of Creatinine Level 12Serum creatinine level normally fluctuates in the range of 0.5-1.3mg/dL or 44-106umol/L. However, when kidneys are damaged and can not work as well as they did before, creatinine will build up in the blood. As a result, serum creatinine level increases. Creatinine level 12 is a very high level and also a very dangerous condition. Well, what are the side effects of creatinine level 12?

Kidney is the organ that is in charge of removing excess creatinine out of the body, so impairment of kidney function always indicates elevation of serum creatinine level. A kidney is composed of about one million of nephrone. When only a small part of nephrone are damaged, there is no impairment of kidney function at all. According to clinical studies, creatinine level in blood begins to increase when about a half of kidney function is impaired, so for patients with creatinine level 12, their kidney function has been severely impaired.

Creatinine 12 is much higher than the normal range, which means kidneys can not purify blood well. Under such a condition, large amounts of toxins build up in the blood. These toxic substances are very harmful and if they are not removed timely, they will affect internal organs and thus cause various side effects.

The followings are the most common side effects of creatinine level 12:

1. Skin problems: dry skin, darken skin and itchy skin.

2. Gastrointestinal discomforts: diarrhea, poor appetite, nausea, vomiting and even vomiting blood

3. Red blood in stool

4. Short breath, hard breath and deep breath

5. Numbness in limb, spasm, unconsciousness, coma

6. Insomnia and drowsiness

Dialysis is usually suggested to purify blood when creatinine level is as high as 12, but it only shows temporary treatment effects. To avoid or remove the side effects caused by high creatinine level 12 permanently, strengthening kidney to improve kidney function is necessary.
