Creatinine is used to evaluate how well your kidneys are functioning.If creatinine level is higher than normal,it may mean that your kidneys are not functioning normally.What does creatinine 5.7 mean?
Normal rang of creatinine level
The normal range for creatinine in the blood may be 0.6 to 1.3 milligrams per deciliter (53 to 115 micromoles per liter),although this can vary from lab to lab,between men and women,and by age.Since the amount of creatinine in the blood increases with muscle mass,men usually have higher creatinine levels than do women.
Possible causes of high creatinine level
In general,a high creatinine level means that your kidneys are not functioning well.But in some cases,creatinine level may increase temporarily due to dehydration,low blood volume, increased consumption of meat or certain medications.Additionally,supplement of creatine may also have the same effect.
How to reduce creatinine 5.7?
If your creatinine level just keeps high temporarily,once the external factors are removed,creatinine level will reduce gradually.If kidney damage is confirmed, it is important to control the possible causes of kidney damage such as Diabetes, high blood pressure etc.
While the permanent kidney damage can not be reversed completely, creatinine 5.7 can be lowered to some extent.
In fact, creatinine itself is not toxic at all and it only reflects the concentration of toxins and wastes in your blood. High levels of toxins and wastes in body result from impaired kidney structure and reduced renal function.Therefore,to lower creatinine 5.7,the principle goal of treatment is to restore the impaired kidney structure and improve renal function.
However, there is no such an solution in traditional western medicine. To restore the impaired kidneys structure and improve renal function, there are mainly two treatment goals: clear the polluted blood;restore the impaired kidney structure.The combined therapy of western medicine and Chinese medicine can be a better treatment option for you including blood purification and Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy.
