If the Creatinine Level is Higher Than the Normal Level What should We DoIf the creatinine level is higher than the normal level what should we do? Usually, the high creatinine level is an indicator of kidney disease, so once the creatinine level goes high the people will get upset. But in fact, not all the high creatinine level means kidney disease, so do not take any actions before you knowing the underlying causes.

What can we know from creatinine level?

The typical human reference ranges for serum creatinine are 0.5 to 1.0 mg/dl (about 45-90 umol/l) for women and 0.7 to 1.2 mg/dl (60-110 umol/l) for men. The significance of a single creatinine value must be interpreted in light of the patient's muscle mass. A patient with a greater muscle mass will have a higher creatinine level. While a baseline serum creatinine of 2.0 mg/dl (150 umol/l) may indicate normal kidney function in a male body builder, a serum creatinine of 1.2 mg/dl (110 umol/l) can indicate significant renal disease in an elderly female. So if you want to know whether your high creatinine level is caused by kidney damage or not, you should go to see the doctor earlier.

If the creatinine level is higher that the normal level what should we do?

As we mentioned above the first thing you need to do is to distinguish the underlying reasons, then do the corresponding measures to reduce it. If it is induced by non-pathological factors, it will disappeared with the underlying reasons. But if it is induced by pathological factors, you need to take systemic treatment timely, so as to avoid big disease.
