Is It Necessary to Check Creatinine Every Three MonthsAll kidney disease patients should know the importance of a test. Is it necessary to check creatinine every three months?

What is creatinine test?

Creatinine is the by-product of muscle metabolism. It will release into the blood and is filtered by the kidneys. Therefore, the serum creatinine level test is taken to indicate whether your kidneys are working properly.

How often you need creatinine tests?

It depends on any underlying conditions and your risk of kidney damage. For example:

● If you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes. Your doctor may recommend a creatinine test at least once a year.

● If you have kidney disease, your doctor may recommend creatinine tests at regular intervals to monitor your condition. In general, 3-6 months is OK.

● If you have an illness that may affect your kidneys—such as high blood pressure or diabetes, or you are taking medicines that may affect your kidneys, your doctor may recommend creatinine tests.

How to prepare a serum creatinine test?

Some medicines can increase your creatinine levels without causing kidney damage. Let your doctor know if you take:

● Cimetidine

● NSAIDs medications like aspirin or ibuprofen

● Chemotherapy drugs

● Cephalosporin

Your doctor may ask you to stop taking your medication before the test. If your blood sample is being tested only for creatinine, you can eat and drink normally before the test.

How to prevent serum creatinine from increasing?

If you want to achieve this goal, you should take measures to protect your kidney function. Some aspects you can take are as follows:

● A low-sodium and low-protein diet

● Drink plenty of water if possible

● Control blood pressure and blood sugar level
