What is high creatinine level after a kidney transplant?

No precise answer. The creatinine test is a surrogate for the more precise measurement of kidney function called gfr--glomerular filtration rate. The creatinine can vary based on donor and recipient gender, age and size, as well as some medical conditions most recipients with very good kidney function have a GFR between 40-70 cc/min and a serum creatinine between 1-2 mg/dl.

My motherinlaw had kidney transplant 2days ago, she is well and walking around hospital. Today doc said her creatinine level is 150, what does it mean?

Talk to the doc. That is a very high creatinine level, are you sure it's not 1.50??

Typically, if the creatinine gets much above the patient's baseline, those are signs of acute rejection, especially if also with fever, decreased urine output, and graft pain/tenderness. .

I wish she will do well to take the new kidney well as being life-saving. Read more...
