For people with Polycystic Kidney Disease especially end-stage PKD, they may be very familiar with high serum creatinine level that is an alarm of severe healthy problems. Knowing the causes of high creatinine level in PKD can guarantee their correct treatment to a large extent.

The normal level of serum creatinine

Creatinine is a waste metabolite of muscle. Normally, creatinine is introduced into blood and excreted into the urine by kidneys. Therefore, for healthy people, creatinine level usually changes in a range (0.5-1.1mg/dl for female, 0.6-1.2mg/dl for male). This value may alter slightly with patients’ age, weight, gender and so on.

What is the cause of high creatinine level in PKD?

● Transient effects such as dehydration, increased amount of weight training or meat consumption.

● Tiredness, cough or don’t have a good rest.

● Patients who have PKD take medications that are harmful to kidney.

● Patients’ high blood pressure or diabetes can’t be controlled very well in a long time.

● Some of kidney cysts grow too big or one of them ruptures to cause a heavy loss of kidney function.

If patients’ high creatinine level is due to first two causes, a healthy diet and correct medications can make it lowered in a short time. However, if the high creatinine level is due to the last three causes, it is difficult to lower high creatinine level, because in this case more than 50% of kidney function has lost. If you have PKD and are tested with high creatinine level, you had better take correct treatment timely. The later you take the treatment, the worse your condition.
