Can An Elevation In Creatinine Level Be The Result Of IbuprofenThe kidneys are responsible for clearing wastes like creatinine from the body. Thus, creatinine level is always within the normal range (0.5-1.3mg/dL). However, some medications can affect the function of the kidneys. Can an elevation in creatinine level be the result of Ibuprofen?

What is Ibuprofen?

Ibuprofen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It is used to reduce fever and treat pain or inflammation caused by many conditions such as headache, toothache, back pain, arthritis, menstrual cramps or minor injury.

Ibuprofen and kidneys

Renal papillary necrosis, or cell death, renal toxicity and other renal injuries may occur due to the long-term use of NSAIDs. Renal toxicity has also been seen in some patients.

Creatinine level and Ibuprofen

Decreased kidney function due to Ibuprofen is more likely in patients who have existing kidney problems and long-term use of Ibuprofen can cause adverse effects such as decreased clearance of creatinine by the kidney. Creatinine is a chemical waste compound and is normally filtered through the kidneys and excreted in the urine.

In addition, ibuprofen can result in severe gastrointestinal distress, characterized by nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. The drug may also cause fluid retention, dizziness, headaches, nose bleeding and rashes.

These pain relievers can be hard on the kidneys, especially when taken for a long time. Thus, if you have kidney damage and high creatinine level, you can try Chinese medicines which all come from nature and have no side effects. The active ingredients can prevent inflammation, expand blood vessels, prevent coagulation, degrade extracellular matrix and provide necessary nutrients. Gradually impaired kidneys can be repaired to some extent and kidney function will also be improved. With improved renal function, high creatinine level can be lowered naturally and effectively.
