What Does Creatinine 2.4 Mean

If you find creatinine 2.4 on your test report, you may be wondering to know what does creatinine 2.4 mean. Generally speaking, creatinine level is such a term kidney disease patients are relatively familiar with, but there is still something they may not know about.

Firstly, people should know that creatinine 2.4 means the severe kidney damage if we leave out other factors which can also cause high creatinine. The creatinine levels will not increase until about 40-50% of kidney function has been lost, that is because our kidneys have very strong compensatory ability.

Which stage of chronic kidney disease is creatinine 2.4 in? Creatinine 2.4 means the condition is in the discompensation stage. According to the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) levels, kidney disease is divided into five stages. While creatinine 2.4 can tell us the condition is in stage 3 chronic kidney disease, even stage 4 chronic kidney disease. Compared with creatinine levels, GFR levels are more precisely to say which stage of kidney disease patients are.

Kidney disease experts suggest patients with creatinine 2.4 to keep a reasonable diet and improve kidney function. Once the condition develops stage 4 chronic kidney disease, it will be nearly impossible to reverse the condition. The corresponding medicines will be used to relieve some symptoms which may appear at stage 3 chronic kidney disease, such as high blood pressure, proteinuria, edema, anemia, loss of appetite and fatigue and so on.

However, patients with creatinine 2.4 seem to care more about the Treatment to Reduce Creatinine. On the basis of controlling the primary disease well, real treatment will be used to help repair the kidney damage and improve the kidney function gradually. In that case, the kidneys can work normally again to filter out the waste products, the creatinine levels will be lowered naturally. Do you know your GFR levels and your primary disease?
