Is Creatinine 1.3 Serious in Kidney Disease

Creatinine is a common index to measure kidney function. For people with kidney disease, if their lab tests show creatinine 1.3, they may want to know whether creatinine 1.3 is serious or not.

Normal range of creatinine level.

Creatinine refers to the end-product of muscular activity. According to the reliable data, the normal value is 0.5-1.1mg/dL for women and 0.6-1.2mg/dL for men. As for people born with one kidney, the level is 1.8-1.9mg/dL. For those exercise regularly and like to eat meat, the value can be a little higher.

From the above analysis, we can realize that creatinine 1.3 is just a little bitter higher than the normal range. When other inducing factors are ruled out, people with kidney disease had better take a comprehensive examination. In this condition, a more accurate result can be attained. If you have no idea about what kind of tests are helpful, please feel free to consult with our Live Doctor!

If creatinine 1.3 is related to kidney damage, patients are not suggested to ignore this problem. If left untreated, it will increase to a higher level. In Western medicine, when the value grows to 5, dialysis will be commonly used to discharge the wastes. To be fair, not everyone is willing to undergo dialysis.

What Are the Key Points of Chronic Nephritis Treatment
Chronic nephritis treatment is the problem that every patient cares about, but what are the key points of the treatment? A good and appropriate treatment regimen is really important.

First of all, we must be clear that the essence of chronic kidney disease is the damage to the kidney inherent cells. Due to renal ischemia and anoxia, a lot of protein and occult blood go out. Thereby the key of treatment lies in repairing the damaged cells.

Then why are cells cells damaged in chronic nephritis?

The accumulation of a large number of immune complexes result in renal ischemia and anoxia, leading to cell shrinkage and cell damage. The immune complexes consists of two forms:

Natural Solution for FSGS Patients with GFR 42
Question: Hi, I have an aggressive form of FSGC with GFR of 42. Currently I am not taking any medication as I am looking for a natural solution.

Answer: Your GFR is 42. It means you are in stage 3 FSGS. Aggressive FSGS usually has a bad prognosis, so you had better take treatment as early as possible to halt the progression of FSGS.

FSGS is characterized by massive proteinuria and swelling. Do you have these symptoms? And do you have high blood pressure? Proteinuria and hypertension are mainly factors that affect the prognosis of FSGS. Western medicines such as steroids, immunosuppressants, ACEI, ARBs and so on are commonly used. Though they have many side effects, their advantages outweigh their disadvantages in short-term. If you can not find out a natural solution timely, you should start western medicine timely. When your disease is under control, you can try natural solution to stabilize the disease. Here we recommend you to try Toxin-Removing Treatment, also known as Detoxification Therapy. It is mainly consisted of Chinese medicine, which does not have so many side effects as western medicine, and you can use it safely for long-term.

7 Treatment Methods for IgA Nephropathy
IgA Nephropathy is caused by many pathogenesis. The most common pathogenesis is intestinal or respiratory infections. They can cause immune system to produce immunoglobulin A1 and then form immune complexes, which can deposit on mesangial area of kidneys to damage glomeruli and renal tubule. Eventually it can lead to kidney failure.

New view is that IgA Nephropathy is also an autoimmune disease with a strong genetic component. It has ethnic and regional differences, and is common in Asian populations (accounting for 40-50% of China's glomerulonephritis), moderate in European populations and rare in the Americas.

Is IgA Nephropathy serious?

Although IgA Nephropathy is classified into several levels, whether it will progress to uremia or not is not highly correlated with the classification, but is closely related to urinary protein and hypertension.

If You Have These 8 Characteristics, It Indicates You Get Well from Kidney Disease Soon
Most people with kidney disease have a common characteristic: they worry that their kidney disease will worsen and they worry that they won't find a proper treatment. However, kidney disease is a very complex disease. It is not only related with your physical condition, but also your living habit. If you can can do these 8 things strictly, your kidney disease can be within control.

1. Blood pressure should be measured regularly.

Blood pressure is associated with kidney disease, which can reflect the severity of kidney disease. In the diagnosis of kidney disease, if you have hypertension (greater than 140/90mmhg), it means you will have a severe pathology. And if it can not be controlled stable, it will directly accelerate the deterioration of kidney disease so as to significantly increase the risk of uremia.

Keeping an eye on your blood pressure is a must for people with kidney disease. If your blood pressure is well controlled, your kidney disease will be well controlled.

Can You Only Wait for Dialysis with High Creatinine Level
With high creatinine level, can you only wait for dialysis? Do not be silly, you have at least 3 ways to lower high creatinine level.

Creatinine is the byproduct of muscle contraction. Because our muscle mass is constant, and basically passed out of body through the kidneys, so creatinine is also called the gold standard for testing kidney function.

Creatinine value is different from proteinuria, occult blood and uric acid. Only a little higher should not be ignored.

Generally speaking, there are two causes of elevated creatinine level.

1. Because of eating too much meat or exercise too much, a lot of creatinine is produced so that glomeruli can not filter the excessive creatinine timely. As a result, some creatinine returns to the blood again, leading to elevation of creatinine. If so, it does not matter.

Proteinuria Is Mainly Due to This Part of Kidney Is Damaged
Proteinuria is a common symptom of kidney disease. But do you know which part of kidney is damaged that results in proteinuria?

Pathogenesis of proteinuria

As we all know, glomerulus is like a sieve, which is responsible for purifying the blood, while kidney tubules are responsible to reabsorb the useful components in the purified blood, and the remaining will be passed out of body with urine.
