Weakness or asthenia is a symptom of a number of different conditions. Many patients with High Creatinine Level are likely to suffer from fatigue and weakness. Today, one patients ask us, “why do I feel weakness with creatinine 10.4?”. Please follow me and you will see the answer.
What does creatinine 10.4 mean?
High creatinine level is a typical symptom for patients with kidney damage. In normal condition, creatinine level in our body changes in a stable range. In fact, it is not easy for patient to have high creatinine, because our kidneys have strong metabolic ability and compensation, and one healthy kidney is enough to complete kidney work. Thereby, patient with kidney disease will not have high creatinine until more that half kidney function is damaged, which is a very serious condition. 10.4 creatinine level is much higher than the normal range(0.1-1.2mg/dl) which should draw highly attention to the body health.
How does it cause weakness for patients?
Actually, living with 10.4 creaatinine level, patients are prone to suffer from numerous symptoms or discomforts due to severe decline of renal function. Weakness can be associated with the following conditions:
1. Accumulate of toxins and wastes
2. Weakness in patient with kidney disease is often related to anemia. Kidney has the function of excreting hormones, among which hemopoietin is very important in producing red cell. Kidney damage can cause the decrease of hemopoietin’s excretion, which can cause patient to have the shortage of red cell in body, so patient will have anemia.
3. Dialysis. If patients are on dialysis, weakness easily occur. Because dialysis is just responsible for discharging some micromolecular toxins, but fails to repair kidney damage and improve renal function. Because the root causes cannot get treated well, other symptoms or discomforts will occur.
