Patient: I have high creatinine in my blood and it had been increasing in the last week. My doctors said creatinine 155 in my blood work. Do you think 155 dangerous? I am 19 female, and I will have kidney biopsy tomorrow.
Doctor: Creatinine is one blood test item to reflect how well kidneys are functioning. For general population, serum creatinine level ranges from 44umol/L to 133umol/l. It indicates renal insufficiency if creatinine level is higher than 188. Of course, the influence of diet changes and lifestyle changes on creatinine level should be ruled out.
Creatinine is one waste product, too much of which builds up in the blood that can cause various complications and problems. Further kidney damage, nausea, vomiting, heart damage, nerve damage, etc, may also occur. Some of them may even threaten patients’ life and worsen their illness condition quickly.
From the above analysis, we can creatinine 155 is indeed dangerous if it is related to kidney damage. Therefore, if your creatinine level is 155 or higher, you should consult your doctor or us to seek effective treatments to reduce your creatinine level and protect your kidney function from the root.
