What stage is creatinine 2.6 with kidney function 18% in kidney disease ?
Actually, both creatinine level and kidney function are two indicator of kidney disease, but the kidney function is more accurate. That is because the creatinine level can be affected by many factors, in addition, it will not goes up only after the kidney function declined to half of level. So in this case, we can say that the disease now is in stage 4, near to stage 5 kidney disease.
Why kidney function is more accurate than creatinine level ?
That is because kidney function reflect the kidneys’ condition directly, in general, how many kidney functions left means how many kidneys can work normally. But creatinine level can not reflect the kidneys’ condition directly, as we mentioned above, it will not decline only after half of the kidneys damaged. So compared with creatinine level, kidney function is more sensitive in reflecting kidney’ condition.
