Is Creatinine 1.29 High in Patient Over 60

Is Creatinine 1.29 High in Patient Over 60Creatinine is an important indicator of renal health, because it is an easily measured byproduct of muscle metabolism that is excreted unchanged by the kidneys. Factors that influence creatinine include age, gender, race and weight. Generally, healthy people over 60 have a lower creatinine level than youngers. Well then, is creatinine 1.29 high in patient over 60?

The normal range of creatinine in a healthy adult male is 0.6 to 1.2 mg/dl, and female is 0.5 to 1.1 mg/dl. We can see that, creatinine 1.29 for patients over 60 is a little high. However, as for the level is on the verge of the normal range, you still should pay attention to that. What’s more, actually, creatinine cannot indicate your kidney function timely and exactly, especially the early and mild kidney function decline.

In general, the production of creatinine is stable. The level of serum creatinine lies on how much the kidneys excrete. Healthy kidneys have a strong compensatory ability that even with one kidney, the creatinine level can be kept in the normal range. That is to say, your creatinine level won’t present high until the kidneys lose 50% function. Therefore, creatinine cannot indicate renal function timely and exactly.

Here are three factors that influence creatinine level:

Muscle mass: Creatinine is the production of muscle metabolism. Large muscle mass will produce more creatinine. Women have fewer muscles than men, so with same kidney function,the creatinine level of women is 15% lower than men.

Age: Normally, people, over 30 years old, have a 1% decline of the normal creatinine level every year.

However, people with kidney diseases have relatively high creatinine level due to the decreased GFR(glomerular filtration rate). Therefore, if your creatinine level is a little high, you’d better to do a urine and blood test to check your kidney condition.
