Creatinine 5.2 is enough to arouse kidney disease patients’ attention, because it is too higher than the normal range. When diagnosed with high creatinine level, patients are always looking for effective remedies to normalize the level. Well then, does more water intake can reduce creatinine 5.2 to the normal level?
The healthy kidneys will help keep creatinine level within the normal ranges (0.5-1.1mg/dl for females and 0.6-1.2mg/dl for males). In clinic, creatinine level won’t increase until half of renal function has been damaged. Therefore, once creatinine level increases, it usually indicates kidneys have been damaged. All in all, the lower renal function, the higher creatinine level. Generally speaking, creatinine 5.2 can tell us that patients may in Stage 4 CKD or Kidney Failure stage.
Actually, drinking more water can lower high creatinine level to a certain degree, but it is unable to deal with the essential issues. When kidney disease patients with creatinine 5.2 do not have swelling and high blood pressure and their urine output is nearly normal, then drinking more water can help increase the frequency of urination. As a result, extra creatinine will get eliminated from the body along with urination.
However, the conditions will become more worsening if you suffer from swelling and high blood pressure. more water can make swelling become worse, aggravate high blood pressure. In this way, kidney function can be affected further, leading to declined kidney function. Thus, kidney can not eliminate creatinine from body through urine, resulting in serious deposition of creatinine.
