How to Bring Creatinine Levels to the Normal Range?

Creatinine levels indicate the proportion of chemical waste molecules in your blood. The normal range for creatinine levels stands between 0.5 milligrams and 1.2 milligrams for each deciliter of blood. Men normally have higher creatinine levels than women. Those with only one kidney may have levels as high as 1.9 milligrams per deciliter, which would still fall within the normal range for this situation. high creatinine levels point to kidney malfunction, and the most common symptoms of this condition include weakness and fatigue, shortness of breath and an increased feeling of dehydration.

Step 1

Ask your doctor for a comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP) blood test. If your symptoms are severe or if you have a history of high creatinine levels or poor kidney function, visit the hospital's emergency ward for a faster CMP evaluation. This test will indicate the severity of your creatinine levels, as well as the underlying medical problems that may be causing chemical waste to build up in your system. This also may help your doctor determine the most effective treatment to bring your level back to the normal range.

Step 2

Check for High blood pressure and begin taking prescribed hypertension medication if your doctor deems this necessary. You can get your blood pressure checked at your doctor's office or go to a drugstore, which often has a testing station. Untreated hypertension may damage your kidneys over time and their ability to filter out chemical waste, leading to high creatinine levels. You must address conditions that hinder your kidney function in order to begin lowering your creatinine levels.

Step 3

Begin hemodialysis treatment if your creatinine levels remain high and you show signs of kidney failure. Your doctor will determine whether this is necessary. Hemodialysis uses a special machine available in some clinics and hospitals to clean your blood of excess chemical waste, particularly creatinine. Hemodialysis also keeps your blood pressure under control, if hypertension medication no longer works.
