Is Creatinine 7.1 Critical

Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2013-12-14 17:23

Is Creatinine 7.1 CriticalIn our body, kidneys are main excretory organs for creatinine. For healthy adults, their creatinine level ranges between 0.5mg/dl for 1.2mg/dl. Creatinine 7.1 is much higher than the normal, and it means a large amount of creatinine builds up in the blood. In this case, is creatinine 7.1 critical?

What causes creatinine 7.1?

Creatinine is generated from creatine during muscular metabolism. Normally, healthy kidneys can eliminate nearly all of creatinine out of the body. However, if kidneys can’t play their filtration function normally, more and more creatinine will build up in the body. Two conditions can cause so high creatinine level.

If your kidneys fail to function suddenly but recover to work later, it indicates acute kidney failure. In this case, your creatinine level will rise to 7.1 quickly. If you have chronic kidney failure, your creatinine level must increase slowly and it usually needs a period of time that creatinine rises to 7.1mg/dl.

Is creatinine 7.1 critical?

For most kidney patients, they are suggested for dialysis when their creatinine level is around 5.0 mg/dl. This is because creatinine is one harmful substance that can cause damage to both kidneys and other organs. In clinic, most kidney failure patients die of life-threatening complications rather kidney failure itself. Therefore, creatinine 7.1 is indeed critical and dangerous. From this point, some treatments for lowering creatinine level should be taken.

Before taking any treatment, you may need a GFR test. If it is lower than 15%, it may be the time to begin dialysis. If not, the following treatments are helpful.

Alternative treatment to dialysis for reducing creatinine 7.1

Food therapy: Cranberry, cucumber, watermelon, lemon juice and some other foods can help increase urine output, so as to lower creatinine level.

Herbal tea: Nettle leaf, dandelion root, chamomile and corn silk has the property of diuretics that help raise creatinine excretion.
