What Does It Mean if Serum Creatinine Level Is 1.9 for IgA Nephropathy Patients

What Does It Mean if Serum Creatinine Level Is 1.9 for IgA Nephropathy PatientsIgA is an antibody to fight against bacteria and virus invading into the body. Due to immune deficiency, the body may produce a lot of antibodies to fight against IgA so as to form immune complexes. These immune complexes may deposit in the kidneys, leading to kidney inflammation. Besides, the Asialoglycoprotein Receptors on the surface of mesangial cells can not remove IgA lodging in the kidneys, which over time can also give rise to kidney inflammation. What does it mean if serum creatinine level is 1.9 for IgA Nephropathy patients?

Serum creatinine 1.9 means renal insufficiency.

Creatinine level is an indicator of kidney function. It usually does not increase until your kidney function is less than 50%. Creatinine 1.9 is a little higher than the normal level (0.5-1.2 mg/dL). Therefore, it means there is kidney damage. From the above, we can see that at the early stage of IgA Nephropathy, there is only kidney inflammation. Short-term inflammation is good for our body, but long-term inflammation can cause kidney function impairment. As a result, creatinine level increases.

It is still possible for you to lower creatinine 1.9 into the normal range.

Creatinine 1.9 means you are in stage 3 kidney disease. If you receive appropriate treatment, there is 50% possibility for you to reverse kidney damage and improve kidney function. Western medicine can help you control symptoms, but they can not repair the damaged kidneys. In the long run, TCM therapies are more preferred, because they can dilate blood vessels and block blood clotting to increase the blood flow into the kidneys so that more immune complexes can be removed and then kidney inflammation is eased. They can also stop kidney fibrosis by degrading extracellular matrix. At last, your whole body become balanced and harmonious. And then your creatinine level comes down.

The earlier treatment you receive, the more possibility for you to restore kidney function. If you have any question, please feel free to contact online doctor or leave a message below.
