Would there be an increased presence of creatinine in the blood or urine in glomerulonephritis? In fact, it is, and glomerulonephritis can cause very high creatinine level if patient has not accepted right treatment and care to control his condition.
What is creatinine?
Creatinine is the metabolic product of muscles, and it will be excreted out of body through urine. In fact, almost all creatinine produced by our muscles will be excreted out in the same day, and little creatinine will be reabsorbed back by kidney tubule, so creatinine can reflect patient’s kidney function.
Can glomerulonephritis cause patient to have high serum creatinine?
Glomerulonephritis is a disease that cause lesion in patient’s glomerulus, and as we know, glomerulus completes the work of filtering out the wastes and toxins from our body, so its damage will influence the decrease of GFR directly. Thereby, glomerulonephritis can cause patient to have low kidney function, and when patient’s kidney function is not able filter all the wastes and toxins out of patient’s blood, creatinine will accumulate, which will led to the increase of serum creatinine level.
Can glomerulonephritis cause high creatinine in urine?
Glomerulonephritis may not cause patient to have high creatinine in urine, but because of the accumulation of creatinine in blood, patient may have low creatinine.
Patient may have high creatinine in his urine in some situations. For example, if patient take much meat, which will produce lots of creatinine, and patient will have high creatinine in his urine. Besides, high creatinine will also be produced if patient have had strenuous exercise.
