Creatinine is one metabolic waste product that enters into blood and is discharged out of the body by kidneys, so it is used commonly to reveal how well kidneys are working. The more creatinine deposits in the blood that means more kidney function is lost. According to creatinine level, kidney disease can be divided into five stages roughly. The following is an overview:
Stage 1 kidney disease, GFR is above 90ml/min, creatinine 0.5-1.5 mg/dl;
Stage 2 kidney disease, GFR 60-89 ml/min, creatinine 1.5-1.9 mg/dl;
Stage 3 kidney disease, GFR 30-59 ml/min, creatinine 2.0-4.9 mg/dl;
Stage 4 kidney disease, GFR 15-29 ml/min, creatinine 5.0-8.0 mg/dl;
Stage 5 kidney disease, GFR is less than 15 ml/min, creatinine is above 8.0 mg/dl.
The above are average creatinine levels for kidney disease patients. Since your creatinine level is 5.3, it has been much higher than the normal values. If left alone, the deposits of creatinine can attack various organs. Therefore, some effective treatments are needed to lower high creatinine level effectively. Food therapy, Medicated Bath, diuretics, ketosteril and some other medicines can help achieve this goal. To learn what medicines are suitable for you, you can consult the ONLINE DOCTOR directly.
