What is the serum creatinine? What are the symptoms of high creatinine in the blood? Once the glomerular filtration function abnormalities, the body's metabolism of creatinine can not be normally excreted, a large number of aggregation in the body will lead to elevated serum creatinine indicators, the formation of harmful human toxins. High creatinine refers to renal function damage. Creatinine is a product of human metabolism, the number of creatinine directly reflects the health of the kidneys are damaged. The creatinine in the blood, mainly from the body muscle activity of the metabolites, a small part from the food, all by the kidneys by urine excretion.
Then what are the symptoms of high creatinine ? Tong Shantang Chinese medicine hospital professors for you to answer:
1, water metabolism disorders: including polyuria, nocturia increased, thirsty, mucosal dry, fatigue, etc .; or systemic edema, blood pressure, pulmonary edema and heart failure.
2, sodium metabolism disorders: high creatinine will appear hyponatremia or hypernatremia.
3, potassium metabolism disorders: high creatinine often accompanied by hyperkalemia or hypokalemia.
4, metabolic acidosis: high creatinine patients may have deep breathing and long, loss of appetite, abdominal pain and nausea, vomiting, weakness, headache, restlessness and even coma and other symptoms.
5, aluminum, magnesium, copper, zinc, selenium abnormalities and so on.
6, renal bone disease: bone pain and proximal muscle weakness; bone pain is often systemic, the following half of the body holding bone as heavy, skeletal deformity can cause short stature and other symptoms.
7, respiratory disease
8, circulatory system lesions
9, digestive system lesions
10, blood system diseases, such as renal anemia and so on.
11, neuromuscular disease and skin symptoms.
12, endocrine dysfunction; metabolic disorders, carbohydrate metabolism disorders, lipid metabolism disorders, protein and amino acid metabolism disorders, metabolic waste retention.
13, patients with high creatinine clinically there will be thyroid dysfunction, sexual dysfunction, growth retardation and other symptoms.
High serum creatinine is due to a variety of causes of renal damage, the occurrence of phenotypic transformation of the existing cells and pathological changes damage normal renal tissue, resulting in renal filtration membrane detoxification function gradually lost, serum creatinine can not be completely discharged in the body accumulation, and ultimately lead to Uremia.
