Creatinine is an indicator of kidney function. The buildup of creatinine in the blood will increase the damage of kidney function. Usually, one with high creatinine has already lost half of his kidney function. So it is important to pay attention to the creatinine level and know how to lower high creatinine level.
Creatinine is the metabolic waste of muscles which is filtrated by glomerular and discharged through urine. When you have kidney disease, the filtration function is decreased and the creatinine will build up in blood, causing high creatinine level. Your kidney disease may have developed into kidney failure with the creatinine level rising to 442umol/L. So you should take a treatment as early as possible to prevent further worsening of kidney function.
