Kidney filters the metabolic wastes and toxins out to achieve the goal of purify the blood and maintain the health of our body. When kidney is damaged, the metabolic waste and toxins cannot be discharged and they will accumulate in the blood. Creatinine is the metabolism of muscles and the creatinine level will increase with kidney damage. The normal range of creatinine level is 0.6 to 1.2. Creatinine 2.9 is out of the normal range and it means your kidney function has already declined.
Creatinine level is an reliable indicator of kidney function. It is filtered by glomerular and discharge through urine. If creatinine level increases, it means that much the glomerular filtration membrane is damaged and the extra creatinine cannot be removed. The higher the creatinine level is, the more severe the kidney disease is.
Normally, we have two kidneys, as long as one kidney works, the serum creatinine will be kept in the normal level. So once you find your creatinine level increases, 50% of your kidney function probably has lost.
Creatinine 2.9 means that your kidney function is moderately damaged. So at this stage, you should take measures to improve the glomerular filtration rate to rise kidney function. First of all, you should manage a healthy diet to reduce the burden of kidney. Low-protein food is necessary for you because high-protein food will produce more waste which will worsen the condition. Low- sodium food is suggested because too much sodium will increase water-sodium retention, which will cause swelling. You should also limit smoking and drinking for they will further damage kidney function. You can contact with the online doctor freely for the personalized diet list.
