How High Can Creatinine Level Go In FSGS

How High Can Creatinine Level Go In FSGSHigh serum creatinine level is a concern for FSGS patients, because FSGS can lead to elevation of creatinine level in blood. Well, how high can creatinine level go in FSGS?

FSGS stands for Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis which is a kidney disorder marked by partly injured glomeruli. FSGS elevates creatinine level because it impairs kidney function and kidneys are responsible for removing excess creatinine out of the body.

Normally, when blood flow through kidney, creatinine will pass through kidney and then come out of the body with urine, so creatinine level usually fluctuates in the range of 0.5-1.3mg/dL. However, in FSGS, kidneys cannot filter blood as much as they did before. Under such a condition, creatinine can not be removed out of the body timely. They build up in blood, leading to high serum creatinine level.

In general, dialysis or kidney transplant is suggested when serum creatinine level goes up to be higher than 5, but usually, most of FSGS patients do not start dialysis at all until their life is really threatened, because survival rate becomes lower and lower for dialysis patients.

As serum creatinine level is always measured to help make the decision whether dialysis is needed, reducing high creatinine level down becomes a common pursuit for FSGS patients. High creatinine level is a clinical manifestation of kidney impairment, so to get high level down, the following treatment measures are needed:

-Strengthen kidney and prevent further kidney damages.

-Repair injured glomeruli to increase kidney function. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a good treatment option to repair kidney damages naturally.

-Promote renal blood circulation, so as to alleviate renal anemia and renal anoxia which are harmful for kidney tissues.

-Arrange a kidney-friendly diet to reduce kidney burden, which helps to protect residual kidney function. (Consult online doctor to get individual diet suggestions)

-Develop good living habits like regular bed time and try to kick bad habits you have developed like smoking, drinking and staying up.

In FSGS, if no treatment is given, serum creatinine will keep increasing and finally, kidney failure is caused. Therefore, to prevent further elevation of serum creatinine, the earlier the patients take treatment, the better the treatment effects.
