“My blood test shows that my serum creatinine level is 7.6mg/dl,actually, I just know that it is higher and I have no idea about what is this condition”. These words come from a doctor who talk with me on our website. For this question, I will make a detailed explanation. Please keep reading.
Well then, before you know what does serum creatinine 7.6 mean,you should have a certain understanding about what is creatinine.
Creatinine is the metabolic product of creatine phosphate in our muscle and in normal condition, the extra creatinine should be discharged by healthy kidneys with urine. When serum creatinine level increases, it always indicates that there is something wrong with your kidneys, namely kidney problems. Why? As mentioned above, the production of creatinine is relatively stable, because the muscle mass does not change. However, when you kidneys are not functioning well, it is easy to cause high creatinine level in blood. What’s more, high creatinine level is not easy to occur unless more than a half of renal function are damaged.
What does creatinine 7.6 mean?
Creatinine is an important indicator to reflect kidney function, and renal function is determined by GFR (glomerular filtration rate). The lower GFR, the higher creatinine level. And the normal range of creatinine level is 0.5-1.1 for female and 0.6-1.2 for male. And serum creatinine level can reflect how well your kidneys are functioning. Since the kidney has a strong compensatory ability, the creatinine level won’t increase until half of renal function has lost. Therefore, for your creatinine level 7.6, it is a very dangerous condition and it may need to undergo dialysis to lower its level.
