For kidney disease patients, serum creatinine mentioned they are not strange, for healthy people, perhaps is not very understanding, serum creatinine is what? What is the connection with kidney disease? How much for a normal serum creatinine?
Serum creatinine, serum creatinine is thought to be endogenous endogenous creatinine is a product of the metabolism of human body muscle. In muscle creatine mainly by dehydration of irreversible enzyme slowly forming creatinine and then released into the blood, the urine excretion. Closely related to total serum creatinine and muscle in the body, not easily affected by diet. Creatinine is a small molecular substances, can through the kidney filtration, rarely absorption in the malpighian tube, daily of creatinine in the body, almost all with urine, is generally not affected by the amount of urine.
Clinically by measuring serum creatinine to understand an important indicator of renal function, serum creatinine each hospital is not the same as the measure of normal, serum creatinine in general normal standard is: 44-133 umol/L, when the serum creatinine than 133 umol/L means that the kidney damage, have renal insufficiency, renal failure. Which when serum creatinine reached more than 133 umol/L for inflammatory lesions, 186 umol/L for renal damage, 451 umol/L is the renal failure stage, serum creatinine values greater than 707 umol/L said it was very late (uremia).
The normal serum creatinine men and women and children also is different, the normal male serum creatinine is 54-106 umol/L, serum creatinine normal women for 44-97 umol/L, pediatric serum creatinine normal 24.9 69.7 umol/L.
When more than normal serum creatinine, be sure to check in time treatment, treated with caution.
