Creatinine is a byproduct of creatine phosphate (a chemical compound present in the muscle tissue). The clearance of creatinine from the blood is done by bean-shaped kidneys with minimal tubular reabsorption. These filtering agents of the body purify the blood by removing waste and toxins through urine. The accumulation of creatinine in the blood is the result of decreased GFR. GFR is expanded as the glomerular filtration rate. It is an estimation real kidney function that when decreases lead to waste build up in the blood. There are various causes that lead to renal dysfunction like chronic kidney disease, acute kidney failure, polycystic kidney disease, etc. The increased pace of kidney damage results in total loss of kidney function called kidney failure which significantly raises the creatinine levels in the blood. The increased creatinine levels in the blood are the most important indicator of kidney damage.

What are dialysis and its connection with creatinine?

The lost kidney function in a state of kidney failure progressively increases the waste buildup/creatinine build up in the body. It is estimated that creatinine rises up to 3 times in kidney failure with decreased GFR by 75%. In simple terms creatinine above 4mg/dl clearly signifies the need for dialysis in kidney failure. The impairment of kidney failure is treated by the process of an artificial filtration process called dialysis. Allopath offers this treatment mechanism to manage kidney failure. Dialysis is an alternative to kidney function that is performed in the case of dysfunctional kidneys. This procedure is known to be of two types’ hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. The blood gets filtered into the machine called dialyzer and the waste and toxins are thrown out of the body. The use of specialized fluid in peritoneal dialysis carries out this process of blood filtration. The creatinine levels significantly decrease after the conduction of this procedure. The control of various food groups also accompanies this treatment process that helps in reducing the waste accumulation.

Hints of elevated creatinine

The rise of creatinine above 4mg/dl results in developing various physical symptoms like:

  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Tiredness/weakness
  • Lack of appetite
  • Dark-colored urine
  • Frequent urination
