1. What is creatinine?

Creatinine is a waste product of creatine phosphate in muscle, and is usually produced at a fairly constant rate by the body. And the normal value of creatinine level ranges from 0.5umol/l to 1.2ml/dl. Creatinine is mainly discharged out of the blood by the kidneys. However, in cases of severe renal dysfunction, elevated creatinine level will occur, so CKD patients usually say their creatinine level is higher than normal.

2. What does creatinine 2 mean?

Creatinine level in blood and urine may be used to calculate the creatinine clearance, which refers to the glomerular filtration rate(GFR). GFR is very important in clinic because it is a measurement for assessing kidney function. High creatinine level does not occur until at least half of kidney function is damaged. Therefore, once high creatinine level appears, it means kidney damage has been badly damaged. If you have high creatinine level for a long time, it always indicates a kidney-related problems. If your creatinine level 2 lasts for more than 7 days, you had better see a nephrologist to help you find whether you have kidney problems. Of course, many other factors can also lead to high creatinine level, such as long-time standing, much protein intake and strenuous exercise, but this high creatinine level will disappear in a short time.

Clinically, experts divide the chronic kidney disease into 5 stages on the basis of severity of kidney damages. In the below chart you can find creatinine level 2 means stage 2 chronic kidney disease which is a mild kidney damage.

CKD Stages stage 1 stage 2  stage 3 stage 4 stage 5
serum creatinine  <1.6mg/gl 1.6-2.0mg/dl 2.1-5.0mg/dl 5.1-7.9mg/d >8.0mg/dl

Stage 2 chronic kidney disease always has no obvious symptoms, but it is still dangerous to your health condition. Diet management and natural therapy like foot bath, oral Chinese medicine can keep your symptoms under control. If you let it be, it may progress into stage 3 chronic kidney disease. In this case, it is more likely to be difficulty to reverse your kidney function. Nevertheless, stage 2 CKD can be improved greatly effectively by natural Chinese medicine therapy like medicated bath, foot bath and Chinese herbal medicines.
