Creatinine is a substance produced by muscular activity when creatine phosphate is broken down. As a waste product, it is filtered from the blood by the kidneys, and so high creatinine levels in the blood can often indicate the kidney malfunction.
Normal range of serum creatinine
A creatinine level is the measurement of the amount of creatinine in a sample
of blood. Normal range levels for male are 0.6~1.2ml/dL. For females, the normal
range is between 0.5~1.1mg/dL.
Serum creatinine is an important blood test in diagnosing kidney disease,
especially when you have elevated high creatinine in the blood and low
creatinine in the urine at the same time.
What causes high creatinine levels in kidney disease?
A change in kidney function is the most common cause of high creatinine
levels in the blood. Our kidneys are composed of approximately one million
filters for each kidney, called nephrons. One nephron contains a glomerular-and
tubule unit. Most creatinine is normally excreted out along these filtering
units, so we can maintain the low blood creatinine levels.
In kidney disease, the renal nephrons are damaged, so the filtrating units
fail to expel the creatinine in the blood stream adequately, resulting in
elevated creatinine levels. Diabetes and chronic high blood pressure are common
causes of diminished kidney function.
How to reduce high creatinine levels effectively?
We have found that the causes of high creatinine levels in kidney disease are
due to damages to the nephrons, so in order to lower it effectively, we must
repair the impaired nephrons and recover the kidney function.
Here, we'd like to introduce a natural remedy which can help you reduce high
creatinine levels, known as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. This natural
treatment combines traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) with modern medical
technology, and have been clinically used in our hospital to treat high
creatinine and kidney disease successfully. You can find related contents in our
