Creatinine is the metabolic waste of creatin produced from muscle metabolism. It is itself not bad, but is an important indicator of kidney functions. While doing kidney function examination, people sometimes find that their serum creatinine is higher than the normal range while urine creatinine is lower.

Creatinine level of 3.1mg/dl is higher than the normal value (0.5-1.2mg/dl), but it is not serious enough to begin dialysis. So should patients worry about it and what should patients do to prevent further increase of creatinine and protect remaining kidney functions?
First we need to know what will cause high creatinine level and here are the main reasons:
For kidney disease patients:
1. In case of infections including cold, pneumonia, intestinal infection, urinary tract infection, etc, there can be creatinine increase in a short time.
2. If patients have renal toxic medicines or drugs, creatinine can increase and this can sometimes be irreversible.
Another cause is loss of water in the body, for example fever, much sweating, inadequate water intake or diuresis period can cause blood concentration and reduced blood flow in the kidneys. In this case, there can be increase of creatinine level.
Therefore in case of high creatinine of 3.1, do not worry and the first step is to find out the underlying cause and treat it from both the primary and secondary aspects.
If it is confirmed that high creatinine is caused by kidney damages, proper and effective treatments should be received as soon as possible. High creatinine will cause much harm to the body and many cardio-cerebral pulmonary complications are due to excessive accumulation of creatinine, blood urea nitrogen and other toxins.
