Creatinine 1.5, Feeling Cold and IgA Nephropathy: Is It Serious

Question: I suffer from IgA Nephropathy. Now my creatinine level is 1.5 and I always feel cold. Is it serious?

Creatinine 1.5, Feeling Cold and IgA Nephropathy: Is It SeriousAnswer: If you do not put on enough clothes in cold weather, it is possible for you to feel cold. But as you said, you always feel cold. This is an abnormal condition. Now let’s have a brief analysis.

Creatinine 1.5 indicates kidney damage.

Creatinine 1.5 is a little higher than normal range (0.5-1.2 mg/dL). Kidney has immense compensation. When there is slight damage, kidney tissues may occur hypertrophy or hyperplasia to make up the lost function so as to manage creatinine level into normal range. Not until it loses more than 50% kidney function can creatinine level increase quickly.

Cold feeling may be associated with your declined kidney function.

When your kidney function impairs, your kidneys are not able to secrete enough erythropoietin to stimulate bone marrows to make red blood cells. When less blood flows to your hands or feet, you feel very cold. Besides cold feeling, you may have headache, shortness of breath, fatigue, etc. With the progression of IgA Nephropathy, those symptoms become worse. Besides, hypothyroidism, blood vessel problem, diabetes and anorexia can all cause cold feeling.

From the above, we can see that your IgA Nephropathy is not controlled very well. But you are still in the early stage 3. Treatment timely can help you normalize creatinine level and improve cold feeling.

Immunotherapy for IgA Nephropathy

Immunotherapy is a combination of western medicine and Chinese medicine. It can block abnormal immune reaction to reduce the production of immune complexes. It can also cleanse immune complexes from the blood and increase kidneys’ tolerance to immune complexes to prevent further kidney damage. Moreover, it can set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing. When your kidneys regain their ability, creatinine level is normalized and your cold feeling disappears.
