What Happens to Patients Who Don’t Pay Attention to Reducing Creatinine
What happens to patients who don't pay attention to reducing creatinine? The answer is out of your expectation.

Although serum creatinine is not very sensitive to renal function in early stage, it is an important indicator in late stage of kidney disease. By creatinine, kidney disease can be divided into 4 stages, namely renal inflammation, renal insufficiency, renal failure and uremia.

Serum creatinine between 186-442 umol/L means you are in the stage of renal insufficiency, which is the most important period in kidney disease treatment. If you can prevent and control all kinds of symptoms such as proteinuria and hypertension, use medicine reasonably, manage diet, avoid acute factors that can cause kidney damage, such as infection, dehydration, bleeding, etc., you can maintain your renal function and avoid uremia successfully.

Therefore, when creatinine exceeds the value of 442, many people begin to worry about the aggravation of the disease, and they focus on lowering creatinine. But can reducing creatinine really stop the coming of uremia?

For some renal patients, they indeed think that reducing creatinine can avoid uremia, but the result is that they delay treatment and make kidney condition worse.

In fact, people who don't pay that much attention to creatinine tend to be in stable condition, have good kidney function, and have little change in blood creatinine. Why? There are two reasons:

1. More emphasis is placed on comprehensive treatment than on a single indicator treatment.

Patients with stable renal function pay attention to comprehensive treatment, including the treatment of symptoms such as proteinuria, prevention and control of hypertension, the rational use of drugs, strict management of diet such as low protein diet, daily habits improvement like to avoid stay up, overwork, etc. All the aspects that affect renal function should be taken into consideration. Do not only focus on a specific index or symptom.

2. Pay attention to regular follow-up and cooperate with doctors

Kidney disease is a chronic disease that requires patients to have more patience. Some patients will not be treated in the hospital all the time. Therefore, regular follow-up (return visit) is particularly important, which can not only check the patient's condition, but also check whether the patient's care about illness condition, including drug use and diet management, is qualified. If you seek treatment blindly rather than review, it is not good for your recovery.

For the treatment of serum creatinine, if it's acute factors that cause elevated creatinine can recover, but if it is kidney function decline, creatinine level is relatively difficult to drop. Simply creatinine reduction doesn't make sense to treatment, so do not be discouraged if creatinine level can not be brought down. As long as creatinine and kidney function has been steady in a range, uremia won’t occur.

The above information is just for reference. For more information on high creatinine, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
