What Happens When A Persons Creatinine Level Is 9 5
My mother age 64 has got the checkup done, and her creatinine level is 9. Please suggest can it be cure with medicines or dialysis is the only option?
Dialysis: Assuming that all reversible etiology have been ruled out. ...Read more
Check with doc...: How long has it taken to reach 5.9 mg/dl and what is and are BUN (blood urea nitrogen) and electrolytes? And how has your overall clinical picture? If acute and modifiable, some improvement may take place; if chronic, likely you are on the course for dialysis and kidney transplant if feasible. So, check with your nephrologist for the best possible pertinent advice. ...Read more
High creatinine: You need to see a nephrologist to find out what is causing your elevated creatinine (c) level. The c level is dependent on age, sex, race and weight. Causes of an elevated creatinine are obstruction of the outflow of urine, kidney and drugs that cause renal problems. Go to a nephro, have a 24 hour urine collection for c clearance and protein, have a renal ultrasound and blood work to get a plan. ...Read more
My height is 6'3" & weight is 100.3 kgs where as my creatinine level is 1.9, is it ok? If its not how to control it?
Seems a bit high,,: You are a big man, and your creatinine can be higher due to a large proportion of muscle mass in your body which is likely since you are large. It may also be higher from impaired renal function, and other lab readings, like BUN (blood urinary nitrogen), and sodium would indicate this, along with symptoms like edema or swelling in extremities. See your doctor for a complete work-up to be sure. ...Read more
I've had a creatinine level of 1.8 and 1.9. Is this considered high? If so, what needs to be done to bring it down?
A bit elevated: An elevated creatinine can mean that the kidneys are working less efficiently to eliminate waste products from your body. This can be especially important if you have diabetes or high blood pressure - the two leading causes of kidney disease. If you have either of these underlying conditions, get them under control asap. Ask your doctor about your "egfr" result - another kidney blood test. ...Read more
Last September 15, my CREATININE is 81.54 uMOL/L. The normal range is 50.0--120.0. This November 9, my CREATININE LEVEL is 124.53. Unsafe?
Here are some. ..: Some fluctuation in the report of a test result may fluctuate reflecting the time of testing and exercise; I would not overly concern such with no practical need to often repeat testing it as long as you've been living healthy and well. Besides, your profile seems suggesting some personal trait of obsession, which needs to be modified & balanced so to live a longer happier life. Of course, ask Doc ...Read more
For 9 times, my CREATININE level is 119 uMOL/L. The normal range is 50-120. However, yesterday my CREATININE is 81.54. What does this mean?
Monitor for now: Normal levels for females range from 0.5 - 1.1. However, as we get older, our kidney function does decline and creatinine levels increase. Dehydration and certain medications/procedures may also cause a bump in creatinine levels. I'd recommend a medication review and follow up labs in 1-3 months to monitor your creatinine levels, unless you notice changes in your urine in the interim. ...Read more

I have a high bun/ creatinine level (28) and a low creatinine level (0.5). Should I be concerned or do something?
BUN/Creat Ratio: I personally would not worry about it since the high ratio is due to a slightly elevated BUN. This might be due to a diet high in non-essential amino acids (nothing to truly be concerned about) or a mild lack of water intake. If you are still concerned, please see your primary doctor and go over all of that with her/him. ...Read more
What kind if food that is need to eat if you have 8.5 creatinine and 8.5 hemoglobin what best food to reduce creatinine levels.
No such thing: Creatinine is not a toxin, it's a crude surrogate marker used to calculate how much blood is cleaned per unit time and body surface. I'm assuming you are or staked asking for a dialysis patient. For diet, you mainly need to worry about potassium on phosphorus content as well as sodium. Those are far important. But there is no food to lower creatinine. ...Read more
My dad creatinine level has been ranging between 1.5 to 1.7 from last 1year. He is 56 yrs old. Is it indicates any seriousnes? Plse rply

My son is 16 years old 5'10" 162 lbs. I was told his creatinine level was a bit high (1.1). What does this mean? How will this affect him?
Whoa: Unless junior's personal physician very much disagrees, i'd ignore it. The "reference range" was set for non-exercising adults. Any teenaged boy with good muscles will have creatinine 1.1 or higher; in whole classes of athletic med students, most men had creatinine above this. When I was lifting daily, mine was 1.6; a bodybuilder often has 2.0. Too many lawyers and too little common sense. ...Read more
Serum creatinine level reduced from 6.9 to 6.7 within 3 days and again reduced from 6.7 to 5.5 within 4 days. Diaysis is required or not?
Difficult to say: It is a difficult question to answer based on the limited information provided. The cause, duration of renal failure, comorbid conditions etc all play a part in the decision. Your nephrologist would provide the best guidance. ...Read more
What could cause a creatinine level to rise to 1.6 when it has always been normal. I am a 57 year old male well maintained diabetic with a 5.9 a1c?
Possible dehydration: It depends on what time interval you are talking about, to a certain extent. If it was 2 years since your last test, it may be natural progression of diabetic kidney disease. But if it was just recently, there is a reasonable chance you were somewhat dehydrated. Either way you should discuss this with your primary, and get the labs monitored carefully, or start a work up for kidney disease ...Read more
Creatinine: Creatinine level depends on many things....Age, race, sex, muscle mass. For women, the usual creatinine is between 0.6 and 1mg/dl. For men, between 0.9 and 1.4mg/dl. As we age, the creatinine should lower slightly (less muscle mass). The number is important but so are the trends. Usually, I am not very concerned with a creatinine of 1 unless its someone very young or very small/frail. ...Read more
Low kidney function: You have decreased renal (kidney) function. You should get seen by your primary doctor to find out the cause. Possible causes are: chronic high blood pressure, undiagnosed diabetes, chronic nsaid's (e.g. Ibuprofen use.), polycystic kidneys, lupus, bladder/kidney obstruction, artery blockage (stenosis) etc... ...Read more
May not need to: Lab testing isn't "one size fits all." a lab may list 1.2 as the "upper limit of the reference range", but a muscular patient can and should have a higher level. When I was lifting daily, my creatinine stayed at 1.6, and an elite bodybuilder's is likely to 2.0 or so. The level itself doesn't make you sick; it's just one piece of information to tell whether there's kidney disease. ...Read more
Serum creatinine is affected by protein intake, gender, age, race, muscular build, and renal function. A rising creatinine is always of concern. "normal" on lab tests is generally less than 1.2 mg/dl.
Renal function can be estimated with a more complex formula or measured with a 24 h urine collection. ...Read more
Treat the cause: High creatinine level is not a problem in and of itself. High creat does not cause a problem or symptoms. Rather, it is a sign that the kidney is slow eliminating waste (including creatinine waste). This slow function is due to a reason whether it is kidney tissue aging or disease or other reasons like blockage of kidney flow. If u decrease creat without improving kidneys, u still have a problem. ...Read more
Care for kidneys: Today's "normal" creatinine / egfr levels for men often fail to take a well-muscled man's normals into account; if you're 1.6 or below (or even a bit higher if you're really strong), I wouldn't worry. If you're higher, limit salt intake, protein intake if your physician thinks helpful, control your atherosclerosis risk, stay fit to stave off any tendency to diabetes. Good luck. ...Read more
