Creatinine level 18.66 is much higher compared with normal range. Actually, it is one of reliable indicators to reflect how well your kidneys are working well. However, living with creatinine 18.66, how serious is the kidney damage? And which kidney stage are you in?
Creatinine is the metabolic products that us formed in the body during the process of energy production in the muscles. Normal blood creatinine level is 0.5 to 1.1mg/dl for adult women, 0.6 to 1.2mg/dl for adult men and 1.8to 1.9mg/dl for individuals with only one kidney. Its levels get elevated when the kidneys fail to excrete this wasteful wastes properly. However, it is not easy to raise until half of renal function has been damaged. Therefore, high creatinine level is associated with severe kidney damage. Generally speaking, when creatinine exceeds 8mg/dl, dialysis will be recommended by your doctors, let alone creatinine level 18.66mg/dl. Facing so high creatinine level, the damaged kidneys need to work harder to discharge extra creatinine, thus increasing the burden to the damaged kidneys. With the symptom, patients may also suffer from some severe illness condition like high blood pressure, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, anemia, poor appetite. It means that a large amount of toxins and wastes has build up in the body. To filter the polluted blood, dialysis is the effective treatment which can help the damaged kidneys’ work.
Through the above analysis, I am sure that you may have know that your disease has developed into Kidney Failure or ESRD (end stage renal disease) which means kidney already has lost nearly all of renal function. Now, one of urgent things is how to reduce the dangerous level.
