My dads creatinine level is now 1.7. Is it safe for surgery?

My dads creatinine level is now 1.7. Is it safe for surgery?

His dr can decide: This questions is best left to be answered by the doctors caring for your father= this one result is not the determining factor as to whether or not he is cleared- the gfr (glomerular filtration rate) is a better test to clarify kidney fxn. & in general this alone doesn't usually inhibit surgery- also the type of surgery is important to consider. Please discuss this issue thoroughly w his doctor. ...Read more

Is 1.03 bad creatinine level?

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

How to decrease creatinine levels?

How to decrease creatinine levels?

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

How can I reduce creatinine levels?

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

How can I lower my creatinine level?

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

How often do creatinine levels change?

Change in creatine: Creatinine (c) can elevate acutely, in cases of low blood flow to the kidney, dehydration, obstruction to urine outflow and agents toxic to the kidney. When these issues are resolved, it can go down quickly as well. Renal diseases such as diabetes and glomerulonepritis (g) can elevate the c more slowly. Once the c is elevated in diabetes, it will not come down. If the g is treated, c can go down. ...Read more
