A common question how long can I live with creatinine 7 is very concerned among patients. Creatinine levels are usually taken as a reliable indicator to reflect kidney function. For kidney disease patients, creatinine 7 is very dangerous sign because it implies that there is severe drop on renal function.
The normal range of creatinine level is 0.5-1.1mg/dl for female and 0.6-1.2mg/dl for male. For creatinine 7, it is much higher than the normal range. And in general condition, if creatinine level is more than 8, it is usually suggested to begin dialysis, while for creatinine level induced by acute kidney disease, if its level beyonds 5, patients may need to undergo dialysis.
How creatinine level 7 occurs in kidney disease?
Creatinine is waste product of muscle, and it should be filtered out by kidneys. When kidney function is damaged by kidney disease, excessive creatinine level will pile up in the body and cause high creatinine level. However, elevated creatinine level is not easy to occur unless more than 50 percent of kidney function is involved and damaged. Therefore, creatinine 7 may be life-threatening if left untreated.
