To know what does creatinine level 4 signify, you’s better have a certain understanding about what is creatinine. Well then, let’s see the article together and you will find the answer by yourself.
What is creatinine?
Creatinine is a chemical waste product that is produced continuously during normal muscle breakdown. And it is made up of creatine phosphate in muscle. Normally, the extra creatinine should be filtered out of the body through the kidneys and excreted in urine. When creatinine increases, it is always associated with some kidney problems. As we all know, healthy kidneys are responsible for removing waste products and toxins from the body, including creatinine. However, when your kidneys are damaged and kidney are not working properly, high creatinine level is easier to occur.
What does mean of creatinine level 3?
Actually, creatinine is one of important indicators to reflect renal function. And the level of creatinine is determined by GFR (glomerular filtration rate) which is also an indicator of renal function. Generally speaking, the lower GFR, the higher creatinine level. And the normal range of creatinine level is about 0.5-1.1mg/dl for female and 0.6-1.2mg/dl for male. Compared to the normal range, creatinine 3 is much higher than the normal range. And in this case, it implies that you are in stage 3 kidney disease. What’s more, high creatinine level won’t increase until a half of renal function has lost. If left untreated, it will lead to numerous symptoms, such as nausea, poor appetite, vomiting, high blood pressure and so on.
