Many people never heard of creatinine before they got kidney disease. Even if they got kidney disease, they were found to have increased creatinine and no special feeling. However, the increase in serum creatinine usually means that the following 3 problems occur in patients with kidney disease.
Kidney damage more than 70%, the kidney itself has a strong compensatory nature, even if only one kidney, will not affect our normal life. But if more than 70% of the renal units are severely damaged, normal function can not be maintained.
So when blood creatinine increases, doctors will always ask many questions, such as whether creatinine has been raised before. What was the last trace of creatinine? Have you got a cold recently? Do you have any diarrhea? Do you have any medicine... The reason for asking so much is to determine that the increase in creatinine is indeed caused by impaired renal function.
Heart failure and elevated serum creatinine are usually a manifestation of chronic renal failure, and chronic renal failure may also cause heart failure in addition to a rise in blood creatinine. The causes of chronic renal failure complicated by heart failure are usually arrhythmia caused by electrolyte disturbance, ventricular hypertrophy caused by hypertension, or bacterial infection caused by low immunity. But no matter what the cause, when the blood creatinine is raised, doctors usually ask more: do you sleep well at night?
Anemia, with elevated serum creatinine, usually means problems with other renal functions, such as reduced erythropoietin secretion. Heme is secreted by the adrenal gland, the main function of which is to stimulate bone marrow hematopoiesis. When the secretion of erythropoietin drops, the capacity of hematopoiesis will decrease. Anaemia is formed by the interference of metabolic wastes such as creatinine, such as creatinine, on the formation and metabolism of red blood cells in the blood.
Anemia not only makes you pale, dizzy, tired, but also makes many systems and organs decline due to long-term ischemia, which leads to more serious problems.
What should be done in the rise of blood creatinine?
Once the blood creatinine is found, it is necessary to determine whether or not it is caused by renal failure as soon as possible. If the diagnosis of renal failure, should be given active treatment, can not wait for dialysis. The treatment includes Chinese patent medicine, western medicine, colon dialysis and so on. At the same time, we should pay attention to the problems of anemia, heart failure, hypertension, electrolyte disorder and so on.
