Creatinine is the waste product of muscle metabolism, and is discharged by kidneys stably. Therefore, high creatinine is always an indicator of kidney damage. Is a creatinine level of 1.32 considered dangerous?
What is the normal range of serum creatinine?
Normal creatinine ranges from 0.5-1.1 mg/dl for female and 0.6-1.2 mg/dl for male. People with one kidneys have a higher creatinine level that is 1.8-1.9 mg/dl.
This is the general standard for elevate renal function. The normal creatinine level may be a little different in different hospitals and labs, so you should ask the doctor the standard he or she takes.
Is creatinine 1.32 dangerous?
You can see that creatinine 1.32 is a little higher than the normal range. Our kidneys have very strong compensatory ability. Even if one kidney is damaged, the other one can ,work harder to function normally. Therefore, even a slight elevation of creatinine means half of the kidney function has been damaged.
But creatinine 1.32 is not so serious and can be lowered effectively.
Treatment for creatinine 1.32
Since kidney function damage is the real cause of creatinine 1.32, treatment should aim at improving renal function. In that case, I recommend you to take Traditional Chinese Medicine. The main function of TCM is to improve blood circulation by expanding blood vessels, reducing inflammation and degrading extracellular matrixes. Therefore, kidneys can get enough blood volume and oxygen to repair the damaged renal tissues.
