What are the problems if creatinine is high in men? Actually, High Creatinine Level is one typical symptom among patients with chronic kidney disease or Kidney Failure. Of course, it also may be caused by the improper diet and lifestyles. Now, for the question, let’s have a look at the passage.
What is the creatinine level?
Creatinine is a chemical waste produced in the blood that passes through the kidneys to be filtered and eliminated in urine. Usually, it is taken as an indicator to reflect how well your kidneys are working well.
What are the problems if creatinine is high in men?
In normal conditions, men usually have higher creatinine levels compared to women because men have more muscle tissues. Men have approximately 0.6 to 1.2 mg/dl of creatinine. Once their creatinine level is more than the normal range, they should find out the underlying causes. If high creatinine level is caused by damaged kidney and low GFR, they should seek the medical treatment as soon as possible.
Problems in men if elevated creatinine level is caused by the severe kidney damage.
High creatinine level usually indicates that 50% of renal function has been damaged. And the damaged kidneys cannot filter the extra wastes and toxins from the blood. In the condition, more and more wastes and toxins will build up in the body, leading to various conditions for people. The typical problems in men include the following:
-Nausea and vomiting
-High blood pressure
-Flank pain or black pain
-Body changes (men often gain large amounts of weight very quickly and have facial or body hair in strange places.)
-Urinary tract infection (although it is rare in men, they are quite serious when they do occur and are usually the sign of bigger kidney problems.)
Without the treatment or taking improper treatment, dialysis or kidney transplant will be applied eventually, so as to lower its high level and prolong patients life.
