Creatinine And Polycystic Kidney Disease
When it comes to Polycystic Kidney Disease, how to control high creatinine level is one of the major topics among patients. Creatinine is one of the wastes produced by our body. Normally, it is kept in the stable range 0.5-1.3mg/dL; however, in cases of Polycystic Kidney Disease, it increases out of the normal range and becomes a worry for patients.
How is creatinine and Polycystic Kidney Disease related with each other?
Creatinine is related with Polycystic Kidney Disease, as creatinine level is kept in the normal range through kidney and Polycystic Kidney Disease is a genetic illness that can affect kidney function.
Kidney works as a filter and helps to filter our blood during which wastes like creatinine and urea nitrogen are discharged timely. Polycystic Kidney Disease is an inherited kidney disorder that can cause cyst formation in kidney. When kidney tissues are affected by cysts and lose their working ability gradually, kidney function decreases. Affected kidney can not discharge excess creatinine, as a result of which, creatinine level increases.
Treatment for high creatinine level in Polycystic Kidney Disease
For an individual with Polycystic Kidney Disease, the most effective treatment method for him to lower creatinine level is to shrink kidney cysts. We know in cases of Polycystic Kidney Disease kidney function decreases as kidney tissues are damaged by enlarged kidney cysts which put pressure on them and make them unable in getting enough nutrition and oxygen. From this point of view, we can know clearly that when kidney cysts are shrunk effectively, surrounding kidney tissues will be protected from being damaged and kidney function will stop decreasing. Consequently, creatinine level stops increasing.
Dialysis will be required by Polycystic Kidney Disease patients usually when creatinine level increases to 5, so an effective control of creatinine is the precondition for patients to prevent, at least delay dialysis.
