Serum creatinine is the most commonly used indicator of renal function and a mandatory test for physical examination. The concentration of serum creatinine is mainly determined by the glomerular filtration capacity (GFR). The decline in filtration capacity results in elevated creatinine levels. Many of those who received tests found their blood creatinine levels within normal limits and thought their kidney function was all right. In fact, this is a misunderstanding of blood creatinine awareness. Because the blood creatinine value does not reflect the state of renal function in a timely and accurate manner.When the glomerular filtration rate decreased to normal 1/3, serum creatinine was significantly increased.That is to say, because the human kidney metabolism ability, when kidney damage is light when the general discomfort is not obvious, so a lot of people when the real nausea, vomiting and dizziness, actually has kidney damage, the serum creatinine also began to rise significantly.
Creatinine is a toxin produced by the metabolism of human muscles. When normal renal function is passed, creatinine is excreted through the kidneys. When the renal function declines and the creatinine in the body cannot be completely discharged, the creatinine value will rise. Improper diet, irregular living (often staying up late) and overwork can result in an increase in creatinine levels. If the renal patients engaged in heavy physical labor, overwork, increases muscle activity, accelerate creatinine generation, thereby increasing the creatinine content in vivo, the formation of further damage to the kidney, kidney patients prohibit strenuous exercise and heavy physical labor.
(1) dietary factors, excessive consumption of meat in patients with kidney disease will cause an increase in body creatinine content, so patients with kidney disease should generally light diet, eat more fresh vegetables and fruits, reduce the intake of meat.
(2) poor control of symptoms of hypertension can lead to elevated creatinine levels.
(3) when abnormal urination, polyuria, patients with symptoms of hyperhidrosis, can cause blood pressure concentration increases, thereby increasing the creatinine content in vivo.
(4) elevated creatinine caused by drugs.
