2013-04-10 10:01

Creatinine 3.3 is an abnormal medical index for PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease) patients. Creatinine level is a commonly used clinic index that can help to reflect many conditions. Well then, for PKD patients, what can they learn from creatinine 3.3?

Reference value of creatinine level differs from hospital to hospital, but generally it stays in the range 0.5-1.3mg/dL. For a PKD patient, creatinine 3.3 means:

1. His kidney function has been affected seriously

Creatinine is one of the toxins produced by our body and normally kept in a stable range through our kidneys. Creatinine level can be affected mildly by diet and physical exercises. When lots of creatinine are produced at one time, kidneys will perform excretion function and remove the excess creatinine. Therefore, creatinine level helps to reflect kidney function.

PKD is a genetic kidney disorder and can cause impairment of kidney function. For PKD patients whose creatinine level increases to 3.3, their kidney function has been affected seriously, as creatinine level usually does not increase until a half of kidney function is affected.

2. There are lots of toxins in his blood

Creatinine is just one of the toxins produced by our body and together with other toxins, they all are discharged by our kidneys. Creatinine 3.3 means kidneys can not discharge toxins in the blood timely and it also implies kidneys can not to remove other toxins timely. Therefore, for PKD patients with creatinine 3.3, there must be lots of toxins in the their blood.

3. Their other organs are threatened seriously

Our kidneys help to keep our blood clean and when they are damaged, they fail to perform function properly. Consequently, more and more toxins build up in blood. As time goes by, more and more toxins pile up and they may reach any part of patient’s body. In this light, patient’s other organs are threatened seriously as well.

For PKD patients with creatinine 3.3, toxins in blood may affect their digestive system, skin, cardiovascular system and nerve system and so on. Therefore, they are run a high risk for nausea, vomiting, itching skin, heart problems and nerve problems.

Lastly, in cases of PKD, creatinine level increases because of impaired kidney function, so if they want to lower their risk for serious complications, they need to improve kidney function to lower creatinine level.
