With a large number of people suffering from uncontrolled blood sugar levels or high blood pressure, the cases of High Creatinine Levels is on the rise. Kidneys help in maintaining the blood pressure, keeping the electrolyte balance and generation of red blood corpuscles in the body. When the kidneys become porous and start leaking out the proteins in the urine, the kidneys begin to malfunction. Symptoms like Loss of appetite, weight loss, nausea and
difficulty in urination, High levels of potassium in the blood, very high blood sugars, blood in urine, low level of proteins in the blood, high levels of creatine and blood urea, presence of proteins in the urine, etc. are some of the indications of High Creatine Levels which if not given immediate medical care, will lead to Kidney failure conditions.
GFR is a measurement of how well your kidneys are working to clean your blood. It can vary depending on age, sex, and size. A calculation of glomerular filtration rate indicates the level of kidney function.
Doctors use eGFR (Estimated glomerular filtration rate), along with other tests, to diagnose kidney disease, determine which stage you’re in and track any progression.
Creatinine” is derived from the Greek word “kreas,” meaning “flesh.” The suffix “-ine” denotes a chemical substance. When the kidneys fail to clear enough creatinine and other wastes from the blood, the wastes build up in the bloodstream. Under such condition, symptoms of kidney disease, including swelling (edema), nausea, and high blood pressure may develop.
In order to determine whether the kidneys are functioning normally, a test called “Creatinine Clearence Test” is performed. The creatinine-clearance test gauges the rate at which creatinine is “cleared” from the blood by the kidneys. If the kidneys are not removing enough creatinine, the level of creatinine in the urine will fall. And consequently the level of creatinine in the blood will rise.
Control fluid retention and blood pressure with lower sodium and fluid intake and prescribed medications.
Fluid restriction and the degree of sodium restriction needed vary greatly with people in stage 5 CKD, so your requirements will be assessed by your doctor and dietitian. Weigh yourself daily to track weight gains. Fluid weight gains occur quickly, and are associated with swelling and shortness of breath. A high-sodium diet can make you retain more fluid and can affect blood pressure. In Dr. Bhushan’s PRO-LIFE Homeopathy Clinic, you will be advised about the amount of sodium you need each day and to help manage fluid intake.
