As we all know, creatinine level is an evaluator of kidney function. If kidney is damaged, creatinine level will be elevated. Some patients asked that what creatinine level indicate kidney failure? Now let’s talk about this question together.
What Creatinine Level Indicate Kidney Failure
Creatinine is the metabolic product of muscles and it should be filtered by kidneys and discharged through urine. Due to the compensatory ability of kidneys, creatinine level will not go up unless half of kidney function is lost.
In clinic, when the GFR declines to 15% or less, doctor will tell you that your disease have developed into kidney failure. In kidney failure, the creatinine must be high, but not high creatinine level indicate kidney failure. Your creatinine level may be far beyond the normal level when you are in stage 3 or 4 chronic kidney disease. So there is no standard creatinine level which indicate kidney failure.
How can you tell that you are in kidney failure?
Many factors should be brought into consideration to tell whether you are in kidney failure or not. A routine physical test will be taken to check the indicators of your body. The GFR is an important evaluator of what stage of kidney disease the patients in. If the GFR drops to 15% or less, you have more possibility to develop kidney failure.
When you are in kidney failure and accompanied by serious symptoms, you may be asked to do dialysis, which will help kidneys remove waste products, water and electrolyte. But dialysis is not able to improve kidney function. If you want significant improvement, you can try Chinese medicine, which aims at improving kidney function. Have any interests?

Creatinine level has no direct relationship with kidney failure. So if your creatinine level is too high, you should take an overall examination. If you are in kidney failure, you should take treatment as soon as possible!
