Does Elevated Creatinine Means Kidney Failure

2015-02-20 11:25

Does Elevated Creatinine Means Kidney FailureDoes elevated creatinine indicates kidney failure ? Creatinine level is an important indicator of kidney function, and therefore many patients incorrectly believe that patients with elevated creatinine necessarily suffer from kidney failure. I must say, in many cases, increased creatinine indicates kidney problems, but not always.

Elevated creatinine indicates kidney failure ?

Renal failure is referring to the case when the kidneys are not effectively cleanses the blood of wastes and toxins, removes harmful substances from the blood. Creatinine is a metabolite is removed by the kidneys. In the normal case, the level of creatinine was supported in stable range: 0.5-1.2 mg / dl. However, if kidneys are damaged, diseased kidneys can not remove extra creatinine and other harmful wastes from the blood timely, and then creatinine level increased. Our kidneys consist of 222,000,000 nephrons, which mainly consists of the renal tubules and glomeruli. When only a small portion of damaged nephrons, increased serum creatinine and other healthy nephrons and creatinine are removed from the blood metabolites and kidneys still relatively normally operate. Only when more than 50% of nephrons are violated, creatinine increased. And so the CRF (chronic renal failure) increased creatinine shows renal impairment.

Elevated creatinine may induced by different causes, for example, improper food, intense exercise, creatine doplnenie and some drugs. In this case, increased creatinine does not last long.
