Question: My creatinine level is 212.85 umol/L. Now, I am 58 years old and I have a history of high blood pressure. Since my creatinine rises to 212.85 umol/l, should I contact the doctor and accept some treatment?
Answer: Creatinine, one muscle metabolic waste product, is excreted by kidneys. Generally speaking, the formation amount of creatinine is stable, so the level of creatinine in the blood is mainly determined by kidney excretion. Our kidneys have strong compensatory ability, so they can play their function normally with one functioning kidney. Therefore, high creatinine level is more likely to indicate a part of kidney function is damaged.
Normally, creatinine level ranges from 44 to 133 umol/L. When creatinine level is above 133 umol/L, it indicates kidney inflammatory stage. When it is higher than 186umol/L, it reveals renal injury stage. Creatinine 212.85 is higher than 186umol/L, so it means your kidney function is damaged to some extent. Therefore, you had better contact your doctor or the doctor online to see how serious your illness condition is.
