What Does Slightly Elevated Creatinine Mean
Nowadays, many people are diagnosed with slightly elevated creatinine, then, what does it mean? In this article, we will give you a clear answer.
Creatinine is a metabolic product of muscle. In normal case, it is discharged out of the body by kidneys, so, there is less creatinine in blood, thereby, it can measure the kidney function. However, if kidney function begins to decline, creatinine level will elevate.
Generally speaking, the normal level of creatinine is less than 1.5mg/dl. And sightly elevated creatinine means slight renal damage. Patients should take effective steps timely to control the further renal damage. If no effective method is applied, slightly elevated creatinine will cause renal failure or other related complications.
So, how to treat the slightly elevated creatinine?
In China, there is a method called Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, which can improve renal function effectively. Mostly, it is different from traditional herbal medicine. During the course, herbal medicine will be micronized, and two bags contained shattered medicine are placed on patients’ back. Then, with the help of osmosis device, the active medicine can be penetrated into kidney lesions directly.
