Serum Creatinine 1.86 and Diabetes: Is It OK

Q:

My mother is 57. She has diabetes. Her serum creatinine is 1.86. Is it OK or something to worry?

A:

Serum Creatinine 1.86 and Diabetes: Is It OKDiabetes is a common cause of kidney disease. Because kidneys have to work hard to remove the excess sugar from the blood, which over time can cause damage to the kidneys. Besides, high blood sugar can make the capillaries fragile, making protein leak into the urine. In the early stage of Diabetic Nephropathy, there is only microalbuminuria. But with the development, massive proteinuria will occur. Does your mother have proteinuria?

Serum creatinine level is an indicator of kidney function. It does not increase quickly until more than 50 % kidney function decreases. Creatinine 1.86 is a little higher than the normal level (0.5-1.1 mg/dL), so it means there is something wrong with the kidneys. Therefore, you had better take your mother to see a nephrologist as soon as possible to prevent further kidney damage. Here I can give you some general suggestion.

First, stabilize the sugar level. Doing exercise, proper diet and medicine can help control diabetes.

Second, you should make a renal-friendly diet for your mother. Creatinine is by-product of meat, so restrict the intake of meat. Doing exercise is good for health, but avoid strenuous exercise. Because creatinine comes into being when muscle contraction.

Third, repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. In our hospital, there is a set of therapies, including Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Foot Bath, Mai Kang and decoction. They can lower cholesterol level and control blood sugar level, which helps treat diabetes. They can also dilate blood vessels, remove stasis and promote blood circulation to improve ischemia and anoxia in the kidneys. Moreover, they can alleviate kidney inflammation to reduce protein leakage and provide nutrients for kidney self-healing. With comprehensive treatment, creatinine level will come down.

Because creatinine 1.86 is not so high, early treatment can make it return to normal level and it is possible for patients to protect their kidneys from being further damaged. If desired, please leave a message below or send emails to kidneycares@hotmail.com.
