Serum creatinine is an important indicator of renal health because it is an easily measured by-product of muscle metabolism that is excreted unchanged by the kidneys.

In clinic, Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is divide into five stages according to the creatinine level, and creatinine 290.9umol/L indicates you are in Stage 3 CKD with moderate renal damage. At this stage, the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) ranges from 30ml/min to 60ml/min, and kidney function has lost at least 50%.
How serious is creatinine 290.9umol/L?
The normal level of creatinine in the blood is approximately 44-133umol/L. Creatinine 290.9umol/L is much higher than the normal range.

However, it has some side effects and has not solve the underlying problem. Since damaged kidneys is the root cause of creatinine 290.9umol/L, to improve the renal function so as to increase GFR is the key.
Recently, a new therapy has been used widely to decrease creatinine level. This therapy is called “Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy” and is innovated by our nephrologist through more than 20 years’ research. Based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which has a history of more than thousands years, this therapy has achieve great success in treating kidney disease.
