However, most of the patients with kidney disease may not know creatinine level is not a very sensitive index in measuring renal function at all. For powerful compensatory capacity of kidneys, Creatinine level does not increase until more than half of renal function is lost. The following are the reference values of normal creatinine level. Compared with them, you will know whether Creatinine 2.5 is serious or not.
Male: 0.6 mg/dl
Female: 0.5~1.0 mg/dl
Infants: 0.2 mg/dl or higher
Person with one kidney: 1.8~1.9 mg/dl
As creatinine 2.5 mg/dl is twice as high as the normal level, it proves that far more than half of renal function has been lost.
Creatinine 2.5 is an abnormal test value, and almost twice the maximum value of normal range (0.5-1.3). Creatinine is measured to know about kidney function in clinic, well then, what does elevated creatinine level mean? Is creatinine 2.5 serious?
Elevated creatinine level
Creatinine level is tested to reflect kidney condition, as the maintenance of a normal serum creatinine is based on healthy kidneys. In our daily life both sudden high intake of meat and drastic physical exercises can cause accumulation of creatinine in blood, leading to slightly elevated creatinine level. Well, as kidneys can help to discharge excess creatinine, serum creatinine go back to normal range within one or two days. Therefore, a healthy kidney is the key point for a normal serum creatinine.
In clinic, almost all the kidney failure patients will go through elevated creatinine level due to impaired kidney function. They are eager to know the diet to reduce creatinine level in blood and how to stop creatinine level rising, as dialysis or kidney transplant will be required generally when serum creatinine increases to 5.
What does it mean when your creatinine level is 2.5?
Creatinine 2.5 is as high as two times of the maximum value of normal range. Creatinine is one of the toxins produced in the body and together with other wastes, they are normally discharged out of the body by kidneys. Creatinine 2.5 not only mean there are excess creatinine, but also indicates kidneys have been failed to discharge other toxins. Under such a condition, wastes and toxins will build up in the blood quickly, which may cause a series of unnecessary health problems.
For chronic kidney failure patients whose serum creatinine has been elevated to 2.5, protect residual kidney function to stop further increase of creatinine level is very essential. To achieve this medical purpose, they generally need to adjust their daily diet, have a tight control about all the symptoms like high blood pressure, proteinuria and anemia, protect residual kidney tissues and improve kidney function actively (For detailed information, please contact us directly).
