Does Serum Creatinine 2.1 Mean DialysisCreatinine is the by-product of muscle metabolism. It forms at a constant rate and is discharged by the kidneys. Therefore, high creatinine always indicate the kidneys are not working well. Does serum creatinine 2.1 mean dialysis?

For female: 0.5-1.1mg/dl

For person with one kidney: 1.8-1.9mg/dl

Creatinine 2.1 is higher than the normal level, but it is not so serious that need dialysis. In general, creatinine levels that reach 2.0 in babies and 10.0 or more in adults may indicate severe kidney impairment and they need a dialysis to remove wastes from the blood.

How to lower creatinine 2.1?

First of all, you should keep a low-sodium, low-protein, low potassium and phosphorous diet. This can create a good environment for lowering high creatinine.

Secondly, you can drink more Chinese herbal tea. On one hand, more water can increase the urine output so as to help the kidney remove excessive creatinine.

They can also accelerate the elimination of creatinine and other wastes.
