What Causes Creatinine To Go Up In FSGS

What Causes Creatinine To Go Up In FSGSWhat causes creatinine to go up in Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis? If you were a FSGS sufferer, you may find your creatinine level in blood is higher than the normal range 0.5 to 1.3mg/dL. Also, with the deterioration of illness, creatinine level becomes higher and higher. Why is this? Here in this article we will introduce what causes creatinine to go up in FSGS.

What is creatinine?

Creatinine is a substance with small molecular weight and produced when meat is consumed in the body. Normal serum creatinine level is 0.6-1.1mg/dL for female and 0.9-1.3mg/dL for male. Many conditions can cause fluctuation of serum creatinine level like medicines and kidney problem. Therefore, when one is detected with high or low creatinine level, he must find out the real cause firstly and then take some measures to deal with it.

What causes creatinine to go up in FSGS?

FSGS is an illness that progresses over time. In FSGS, glomeruli are injured for some reasons and if we can not stop further kidney damages, more and more kidney tissues will be injured. As a result, kidney function keeps declining.

Creatinine belongs to small molecular substance and can pass through kidney freely. Therefore, when kidney function is affected by FSGS, creatinine will build up in the blood. Under such a circumstance, if we have a blood test, test report will show high serum creatinine level. Also, the poorer the kidney function is, the higher the serum creatinine level is.

How to reduce high creatinine level to normal range with FSGS?

For FSGS patients, since elevation of serum creatinine level is due to impairment of kidney function, so to reduce creatinine level into normal range, they must improve their kidney function firstly. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a treatment suggested for FSGS patients. It is recommended for FSGS patients because it can block inflammation in kidney, dilate blood vessels to lower down high blood pressure, prevent coagulation to prevent blood stasis and degrade extracellular matrix to protect residual kidney tissues. With the help of these functions, kidney condition can be improved and also high creatinine level can be lowered down successfully.
