What are common symptoms of high creatinine level? You must know its damage since you ask that question.Before I give you the answer, I think it is necessary for you to know why high creatinine occurs firstly.
Among many reasons for high creatinine level, kidney disease is the main cause. The creatinine level is an important indicator for reflecting the renal function. Creatinine is the product after muscle metabolism, excreted mainly through kidneys. When creatinine level is high, it means glomeruli are damaged,failing to eliminate extra creatinine. That is to say, the higher creatinine level is,the more sever kidney damages are.
Actually, in the early stage of nephritis, no obvious symptoms are showed. Only when the the glomerular filtration rate has decreased to 1/3 of the normal function, patients will have some uncomfortable feelings such as nausea, vomiting, weakness and pain etc. Now, I will introduce you the common symptoms of high creatinine level:
1. Swelling or edema in hands or feet.
It is the most common symptom of high creatinine level. Slight edema is usually presented as eyelid or facial edema after you get up in the morning.Severe edema often appears in insides of ankles,lower limbs and lumbosacral parts.
2. High blood pressure
3. Urine changes: foamy urine for a long time,frequent or painful urination or changes in the color of urine.
4. Digestive problems like poor appetite, nausea and vomiting
5. Fatigue, weakness or deconcentration
6. Skin problems like dry skin, yellow skin and itchy skin
There are some other symptoms like anemia,bone pains and deep and long breath. Those six points mentioned above are the common symptoms of high creatine level. However,it may not be the only reason for those symptoms.Similarly, high creatinine level dose not mean the person has a kidney disease,but it is indeed a indicator that you need to have a regular examination.
