What Level of Creatinine Indicates Kidney FailureIt is well know that creatinine level is one of indicators to reflect how well your kidneys are functioning. it can be higher and higher with the continual loss of kidney function. Well then, what creatinine level indicates kidney failure?

To be frank, different countries have the different creatinine levels to indicate kidney failure. But in China and some other Asian countires, kidney disease is divided into five stages and generally, when the illness condition progresses into stage 4, we can say it is very near to Kidney Failure, which refers that kidneys lose their ability and functions completely. And in the normal condition, creatinine level can be kept within the normal range which is 0.5-1.1mg/dl for female and 0.6-1.2mg/dl for male respectively. Therefore, once creatinine level is more than the normal ranges, it indicates there is something wrong with the kidneys. And if the creatinine level is in 5.1-7.9mg/dl or 442-707umol/L, then, we will say it is kidney (renal) failure stage.

However, as a matter of fact, it is not very accurate to use creatinine levek to indicate kidney failure. The more reliable index is glomerular filtration rate (GFR). If a patient’s GFR level decreases to 15-30ml/min or even less, we will judge the illness condition of the patient is in stage 4 kidney disease or kidney failure stage.
