How Bad Is Creatinine 1.7

How bad is creatinine 1.7? For healthy people, the level of creatinine keeps constant. Here we leave out the dietary influence on creatinine level, high creatinine level has something to do with kidney damage. Well, what can creatinine 1.7 tell us?

Creatinine 1.7 is equal to creatinine 150.28umol/L, and it can tell us that the condition is in stage 2 chronic kidney disease. A person with stage 2 chronic kidney disease has kidney damage with a mild decrease in their glomerular filtration rate (GFR) of 60-89 ml/min. There are usually no symptoms to indicate the kidneys are damaged. Because the kidneys have very strong compensatory ability and they do a good job even when they are not functioning at 100%. High creatinine, blood in urine, proteinuria and other ways can make patients discover they are in stage 2 chronic kidney disease.

Though creatinine 1.7 tells that the condition is mildly reduced kidney function, it should arouse patients’ enough attention. We will say that if creatinine 1.7 lasts for a long time, it means about 40-50% of kidney function has been lost. Lowering creatinine 1.7 through enhancing kidney function is urgent.

Under normal cases, kidneys help remove the wastes and excessive fluids out of body, once kidney function declines, this kind of function will be discounted, then high creatinine appears. So enhancing kidney function is such a treatment which deals with problem from the root to reduce high creatinine. And generally speaking, the prognosis of stage 2 chronic kidney disease is good, and it is very likely to be reversed. So don’t delay the condition because creatinine 1.7 has not caused the obvious symptoms.

What treatment can help enhance kidney function? Chinese herbal medicines can do this through repairing kidney damage and providing nutrition for the damaged kidneys. The whole process will not cause side effects as all Chinese herbal medicines come from the nature. We will be here providing you more information about creatinine 1.7 and Chinese herbal medicine, if you have the follow-up questions.
