What does mean when my creatinine level is 2.9? You may have searched the related info on the Internet, and you will find that high creatinine level is always associated with kidney disease. Usually, high creatinine level indicates a poor outcome of kidney condition. Here, I will give you a overall explanation about this question.
The relationship between creatinine and kidneys.
Creatinine is the metabolic product when our muscles move and run. Also, it is a byproduct of the meat products. Normally, the extra creatinine should be filtered out of the body by the kidneys, together with other useless substances like urea, BUN, extra fluid and so on. Since the muscle mass is stable, the production of creatinine won’t have obvious change. And the creatinine level is determined by how much the kidney can discharge. Even though you have one kidney, it will work more to discharge the the extra creatinine and keep creatinine within a normal range. Because our kidneys have a strong compensatory ability. However, if you creatinine level increases, it indicates that your kidney has got severe damage, since high creatinine level is not easy to occur unless half of kidney function has lost.
What does mean of creatinine 2.9?
The normal range of creatinine is 0.5-1.1 mg/dl for female and 0.6-1.2 mg/dl for male. Creatinine 2.9 is much higher than the normal range, no matter for female or male. And creatinine is an important indicator to reflect renal function. For creatinine 2.9, it indicates that you are in Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD).
