Creatinine Level Just Over Normal Range, to Use Medicine Immediately? NoIf creatinine level is just over normal range, should you use medicine immediately? No, you should be clear about this point firstly.

Proteinuria, occult blood and serum creatinine are "three carriages" of kidney disease, and it is these three horses that pull kidney patients to run towards the terrible uremia.

As we all know, elevated creatinine usually means problems with kidney function, but for those kidney patients whose creatinine levels just exceed the reference value, should they be actively treated?

There are three reasons why creatinine is elevated:

1. Kidney failure

Creatinine is almost entirely dependent on renal metabolism, so when renal filtration is severely impaired, serum creatinine levels rise.

2. Dehydration

Strenuous exercise, continuous diarrhea, and drinking too little water can lead to dehydration, resulting in blood concentration, which may also lead to increased serum creatinine.

3. Too tired

Long-term overwork can make your body to be in the state of excessive consumption, which may also lead to increased serum creatinine.

What to do when you find your creatinine level elevates?

First of all, you should find out the cause.

Renal failure is indeed the main reason for the increase of creatinine, but other causes of the elevated creatinine are no longer rare, therefore, you can not treat it in accordance with renal failure forever. In fact, this is the case in almost all clinical manifestations of kidney disease. For example,

-Proteinuria may also be caused by exercise, diet and even posture.

-Occult blood may result from UTIs, stones, tumor or even menstrual cycle.

Therefore, you are always suggested to do various tests in case of misdiagnosis.

What to do when creatinine level is just beyond the normal range?

If you can ensure it is kidney failure that causes it, how to deal with the slightly elevated creatinine?

1. To discharge creatinine

Slightly increased creatinine does not need dialysis. It is usually treated by medicines, such as medicinal charcoal, niaoduqing, shenshuaining, etc. Those medicines can help pass some creatinine out of body through bowel movement.

2. To improve blood microcirculation

In fact, many kidney patients use Chinese patent medicine to improve blood circulation in kidneys. No matter what type of kidney disease, there will be blockages of renal capillaries and renal cell ischemia and hypoxia, which further accelerate renal failure. The aim of improving microcirculation is to protect the remaining renal cells, delay the development of kidney disease and allow patients to enter the uremia stage later.
