What Does Creatinine Level 2.1 Mean for Diabetics

Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2013-12-07 09:05

What Does Creatinine Level 2.1 Mean for DiabeticsCreatinine is the waste product made when creatine, which is contained in body muscles and most of protein products, is broken down. It is discharged out of body in the urine. Under normal circumstances, creatinine level ranges from 0.5 to 1.1 mg/dl for adult female, 0.6 to 1.2 mg/dl for adult male. Creatinine 2.1 is higher than the normal. For diabetics, what does it mean?

What causes elevated creatinine for diabetics?

High blood sugar is the main character of diabetes. Exposed to high blood sugar for a long time, the walls of the small blood vessels that supply the nerves with oxygen and nutrients will be weakened. Over time, the kidney will not function well due to oxygen deficiency. Because creatinine is totally discharged out of body by kidneys. When kidneys fail to work, creatinine builds up, resulting in high creatinine level.

However, it does not mean that as long as your creatinine level increases, your kidneys go wrong. There are many factors which can lead to high creatinine level, such as dehydration, fever, high-protein diet etc. But the high creatine level is just temporarily. Once you drink more water, or reduce the protein intake, creatinine level will return to normal.

How to lower creatinine level?

For diabetics, you should firstly control your symptoms of diabetes, such as high blood sugar, high blood pressure, high cholesterol etc. And then you should pay attention to the following things:

-If you do not have swelling, drinking more water is recommended. Increased urine output can bring more creatinine from body.

-Reduce the intake of meat and avoid strenuous exercises so as to decrease the production of creatinine.

-Some herbals, such as nettle leaf, cinnamon, Siberian Ginseng, chicory leaves, have functions of lowering creatinine level.

The above is not enough for you to lower creatinine level. Only to improve kidney function can the problem be solved.

Creatinine 2.1 is not very high. If receiving scientific treatment, you can regain your health soon.
