What Is Considered Critically High Creatinine Level

What Is Considered Critically High Creatinine LevelCritically high creatinine level usually means your kidney has been damaged severely. If left untreated, it may be threatening. Well then, what is considered critically high creatinne level?

Creatinine, as a metabolic waste, should be discharged out of the body by the healthy kidneys. The healthy kidney have a strong compensatory ability. Slight damages can be repaired by kidneys without elevating the creatinine level. However, once kidneys lose 50% renal function, creatinine level will increase because the impaired kidneys are unable to remove the excessive toxins.

What are the normal creatinine level for healthy people?

Actually, people with different age groups have different reference values.


Female: 0.5-1.1mg/dL or 44-97umol/L

Male: 0.6-1.2mg/dL or 53-106umol/L

Elderly: decrease in muscle mass may cause decreased values.

Adolescent: 0.5-1.0mg/dL

Child: 0.3-0.7mg/dL

Infant: 0.2-0.4mg/dL

Newborn: 0.3-1.2mg/dL

Possible critical high creatinine values>5mg/dL (indicates serious impairment in renal function).

If you find that your creatinine level is over 5, dialysis may be recommended by your doctor. Because creatinine level won’t increase until half of renal function has been damaged.

What factors can affect creatinine level?

1. Drugs

Some drugs like ACEI, aminoglycosides, cimetidine, heavy-metal chemotherapeutic agents and other nephrotoxic drugs, such as cephalosporins that may increase creatinine values.

2. Too much meat intake.

3. Fluid loss, like sweating, drinking less water and frequent urine.

4. Tiredness due to over work or lack of rest

Last but not least, how to reduce critically high creatinine level?

To be frank, Dialysis is a fast way to remove extra wastes and toxins from blood, but it fails to repair kidney damage. In order to reduce abnormal level from the root, I recommend Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Acupuncture, and Blood Pollution Therapy to you. Those therapies aim at repairing the damaged kidneys. Once kidney functions well, creatinine level will decline fundamentally.
