If My Creatinine Level is 2.5 and Kidney Function is 18% What Stage Am I In

2015-02-08 14:30

If My Creatinine Level is 2.5 and Kidney Function is 18% What Stage Am I InIf my creatinine level is 2.5 and kidney function is 18% what stage am I in ? Generally speaking, for kidney disease patient with creatinine level 2.5 they are in stage 3 kidney disease, and for people with kidney function 18% they are in stage 4, near to stage 5 kidney disease. Then for people with creatinine 2.5 but kidney function 18% what stage are they in ?

What stage are the patients in if their creatinine level is 2.5 but kidney function is 18% ?

Actually, both creatinine level and kidney function are two indicator of kidney disease, but the kidney function is more accurate. That is because the creatinine level can be affected by many factors, in addition, it will not goes up only after the kidney function declined to half of level. So in this case, we can say that the disease now is in stage 4, near to stage 5 kidney disease.

Why kidney function is more accurate than creatinine level ?

That is because kidney function reflect the kidneys’ condition directly, in general, how many kidney functions left means how many kidneys can work normally. But creatinine level can not reflect the kidneys’ condition directly, as we mentioned above, it will not decline only after half of the kidneys damaged. So compared with creatinine level, kidney function is more sensitive in reflecting kidney’ condition.

So no matter you got a lower creatinine level or a high creatinine level, you should make further diagnosis with the help of your doctor timely, otherwise you may miss the best treatment time.
