What you should know about creatinine 2.62012-12-08 17:06
Maybe you don’t have the obvious symptoms when your creatinine level is 2.6, maybe you will say creatinine 2.6 does not exceed the normal level too much. What we want to tell you is that creatinine 2.6 means the severe kidney damage.
Under normal cases, the serum creatinine level should be controlled under a constant level. The healthy kidneys help human body clear away the wastes and excessive water. The toxins will build up in the body when there is kidney damage (in addition to the influence of diet). Our kidneys have very strong compensatory ability, the creatinine will not increase until more than a half of kidney function has been lost, and this has nothing to do with how much it exceeds the normal level. So we can say that creatinine 2.6 means that more than 50% of kidney function has been lost. See? It is very severe.
Creatinine 2.6 also can tell us that now the condition is in stage 3 CKD. We have to say that it will be difficult to reverse the disease when condition develops into stage 3 CKD. The condition is very possible to be reversed at stage 1 CKD and stage 2 CKD. Now what patients with creatinine 2.6 should do is to lower the creatinine level, save the residual kidney function and enhance kidney function to avoid Renal Failure. In that case, patients still can live a life with high quality.
But the fact is that patients usually take medicines or even take dialysis coupled with the reasonable diet to lower creatinine level, what we have to say is that they have the certain effect lowering creatinine, but they can not avoid Renal Failure’s coming. In clinical, lots of experience has provided that Chinese medicines have the functions of repairing kidney damage and enhancing kidney function. But the pity is that Chinese medicines have not become that popular in other countries. And we hope kidney disease patients could know more about this new field of treating kidney disease.
