How Much Water Should be Drunk With Creatinine 3.9

How Much Water Should be Drunk With Creatinine 3.9Creatinine 3.9 is much higher than the normal range (0.5-1.1mg/dL for female and 0.6-1.2mg/dL). You may be told that drinking more water can reduce high creatinine level, while too much water can cause water-sodium retention, which will worsen the health of kidneys. Well, how much water should be drunk with creatinine 3.9?

What does creatinine 3.9 mean?

Creatinine level in blood is taken as an indicator to reflect how well the kidney is functioning. In clinic, kidney disease is divided into five stages based on the creatinine level, and creatinine 3.9 refers stage 3 kidney disease. At this stage, the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) declines to some extent. Some of the patients may have swelling or edema due to excessive fluids accumulation in the kidneys. At this time, if patients drink more water, swelling will becomes severer.

How much water should be drunk with creatinine 3.9?

As I mentioned above, some patients may have swelling and they are not recommended to drink more water. However, even with kidney disease, some other patients can still have normal urine. In that case, drinking more water is OK, because more creatinine deposition can be discharged with urine. At this time, they can drink water the same as healthy people.

Normally, 2500ml-3000ml is OK for them.

On the contrary, for those who have swelling, they are strictly limited to take water. The amount of water that can be taken should be counted by taking the volume of urine, patients weight and blood pressure into consideration. Creatinine level is not the determinant of water intake. Therefore, patients with creatinine 3.9 should also consult their doctor to check their urine volume.

However, drinking water can not solve the problem, so I recommend patients with high creatinine level to take reasonable and timely treatments to low the creatinine level. For that purpose, you can talk with our experts online or leave a message below.
