Creatinine is a waste product that forms when creatine is broken down. The kidneys are responsible for eliminating this waste product from the body, so serum creatinine levels are an important indicator of renal function. When the kidneys fail to function adequately, as with kidney disease, the levels will become elevated.
A serum creatinine test is performed to measure the amount of this substance
in the blood. People with Diabetes and kidney disease must check it regularly.
Besides, the levels can also be checked with a random urine test and a 24-hour
The values for this test is measured in milligrams per deciliter, written as
mg/dL. In generally, female's normal levels are 0.5~1.1 mg/dL, while normal
values for men are 0.6~1.2 mg/dL.
A person with creatinine level 2 may be affected by CKD Stage 2. In this
stage, patients have kidney damage with a mild decrease in the GFR of 60~89
ml/min. Most people in this condition may experience no symptoms.
With prompt treatment, the kidney damage can be reversed and patients can
recover from the disease, without further request for dialysis.
How to repair the damaged kidneys and restore the renal function?
According to the latest research, the renowned kidney experts in our hospital
have find that most of kidney diseases (>95%) occurs due to abnormal immune
system or immune dysfunction. Excessive immune reaction can cause gradual
decline of kidney function.
Currently, the newest therapy for kidney disease is known as Immunotherapy,
which is created by the nation's top nephrologists in our hospital. This
treatment has been successfully used in clinical to help patients with Chronic
Kidney Disease to reverse the disease and avoid dialysis or a kidney
As one of the largest kidney disease specialized hospitals around the world,
Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital can guarantee patients the most successful
chance of recovery.
