What kind of the normal serum creatinine level
Creatinine is a non-protein end product of creatinine metabolism that appears in serum in amount proportional to the body’s muscle mass.It is produced at a constant rate depending on the muscle mass of the person and is removed from the body by the kidneys.It diagnoses impaired renal function. It is a more specific and sensitive indicator of kidney disease than BUN.
However, once the kidneys are damaged, they are not able to clear the creatinine in the blood. As a result, the serum creatinine level will rise. Abnormally high blood pressure may be a warning of kidney damage or renal failure. Therefore, knowing the normal serum creatinine level is very important for us.
Young Children (0 – 3 years old): 0.3 – 0.7 mg/dL
Children (3 – 18 years old): 0.5 – 0.10 mg/dL
Adults Men: 0.9 – 1.3 mg/dL
Adults Women: 0.6 – 1.1 mg/dL
In addition to the kidney damage, like to eat a lot of meat, strengthening exercise for a long time, the muscle and these creatinine trauma and to increase, but once these factors reduced so creatinine will return to normal, patients don't need treatment. If these factors have been excluded, then possibly kidney disease.
