The Doctor Answered:

Is Creatinine 2.5 Severe for Polycystic Kidney DiseasePolycystic Kidney Disease is an inherited disorder and this is why your father and you both have this disease. As for your creatinine 2.5 which is higher than the normal, it is an indicator that your condition begin to deteriorate, because usually, creatinine level won’t be higher than the normal level (0.5-1.1mg/dl for female, 0.6-1.2mg/dl for male) until more than 50% of kidney function has lost.

Polycystic Kidney Disease is a chronically progressive condition where patients’ kidney isn’t damaged when the kidney cysts are small and no one ruptures. However, with the growth of kidney cysts, they will press their surrounding kidney tissues and cause more and more kidney function damage. If left uncontrolled, patients’ condition will lead to renal failure.
