Creatinine Stages and Risks at Each Stage

Creatinine is a metabolic waste product produced by the metabolic activity of the body muscles. Creatinine is the determining factor to detect whether the kidneys are a function or not. The kidney functions to eliminate most of the creatinine out of the body via urine. When the kidneys are working well they efficiently excrete creatinine but high creatinine levels in the blood show chronic kidney disease (CKD).

Creatinine Stages and Risks at Each Stage

CKD is a kidney disease that gradually shows its symptoms and is classified into 5 stages according to the severity of kidney failure (the ability to eliminate waste from the body). The kidney function is measured by Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR). A mathematical formula involving the age, gender, race, and serum creatinine levels is used to calculate GFR. Blood tests are thus ordered to detect the stages of CKD.

Five Stages Of CKD And GFR For Each Stage

  • Stage 1 with normal or high GFR (GFR > 90 mL/min)
  • Stage 2 Mild CKD (GFR = 60-89 mL/min)
  • Stage 3A Moderate CKD (GFR = 45-59 mL/min)
  • Stage 3B Moderate CKD (GFR = 30-44 mL/min)
  • Stage 4 Severe CKD (GFR = 15-29 mL/min)
  • Stage 5 End Stage CKD (GFR <15 mL/min)

Creatinine Normal Range

The normal levels of creatinine in the blood are 0.6 to 1.2 milligrams (mg) per deciliter (dL) in adult males and 0.5 to 1.1 mg/dL in adult females. You can find the level of creatinine in the blood high at times.

High Creatinine Levels

A very high creatinine level may require kidney transplantation or dialysis treatment.

Different symptoms of kidney dysfunction associated with high serum creatinine levels include fatigue, feeling dehydrated, edema, nausea, vomiting, confusion, dry skin, and neuropathy.

Low Creatinine Levels

Having low levels of blood creatinine levels is uncommon but it can occur due to conditions causing muscle loss. There is nothing much to worry about lower levels of blood creatinine.
