Now the standard of living has improved, the dietary structure has changed, the work pressure has increased, the pace of urban life has accelerated, people's living conditions are good, and eating meat is an indispensable food. A lot of patients ask us about the recent rise in creatinine because of the reason why we eat meat. We listen to experts about how to explain this problem.
Creatinine is a product of muscle metabolism in the body, producing 1mg creatinine per 20g of muscle metabolism. Creatinine is excreted mainly by glomerular filtration. Serum creatinine comes from two exogenous and endogenous sources. Exogenous creatinine is the product of meat metabolism in vivo; endogenous creatinine is the product of metabolism of muscle tissue in vivo. When meat food intake is stable, there is no major change in body muscle metabolism, and the production of creatinine is relatively constant. So does eating meat cause creatinine to rise?
Eating more meat causes a little fluctuation in creatinine, but in general it does not cause a significant rise in creatinine. What is the cause of the rise in creatinine?
The concentration of serum creatinine is mainly determined by the glomerular filtration capacity (GFR). The decline in filtration capacity results in elevated creatinine levels. Serum creatinine is higher than normal, most of which mean kidney damage, and blood creatinine can accurately reflect the damage of renal parenchyma, and is not a sensitive indicator. Because the glomerular filtration rate dropped to normal 1/3, serum creatinine increased significantly. That is to say, because the human kidney metabolism ability, when kidney damage is light when the general discomfort is not obvious, so a lot of people when the real nausea, vomiting and dizziness, actually has kidney damage, the serum creatinine also began to rise significantly.
The above is about the kidney disease, we should pay attention to our physical problems, don't let down, go to the hospital for examination and treatment as soon as possible, in order to avoid deterioration, according to the actual condition of the patients with their diet, if you have uncertainty, you can consult our online expert, our experts will reply as soon as possible.
