Is Leg Pain a Symptom of High Creatinine 3.82

Topics: High Creatinine Level High Creatinine Level Symptoms

Details: I am 76 years old. I am a diabetic patient since 20 years. I have creatinine level 3.82, blood urea 91 and leg pain. Is my leg pain a sign of high creatinine level?

Expert Answer

From your description, high creatinine 3.82 is much higher than the normal. Since you have suffered from diabetes for 20 years, it must have attacked your kidneys and cause diabetic kidney disease.

In clinic, diabetes is the leading cause of kidney disease especially end stage kidney failure. High creatinine 3.82 must mean patients’ kidneys have been impaired severely. However, creatinine isn’t toxic, so it won’t cause any problem directly. Why is increase of serum creatinine level accompanied by many other problems? The reason is low kidney function level.

When kidneys are unable to filter blood normally, electrolyte balance will be damaged. Then, patients may have leg pain easily. Therefore, leg pain is one sign of kidney damage rather than high creatinine level.

In this case, patients should take effective treatments to improve patients’ kidney function, remove creatinine and improve patients’ overall health condition. If you haven’t found an effective therapy, you can consult the doctor online.
