I’m not a doctor so I don’t know all the medical jargon related to my kidney problem; the only thing I can do is connect the dots, and explain why high creatinine levels in blood tests are a problem for my damaged kidneys, and why at times I feel weak with no energy, and have stomach nausea.
Peed Out In My Urine
I do know creatinine is a waste product in my blood that is processed through my kidneys, and peed out in my urine. If I have too much creatinine in my blood, and because my kidneys are damaged, the process takes longer, which causes my lack of energy and stomach nausea, therefore, I have to keep my creatinine levels in the recommended range.
Creatine VS Creatinine
People get confused between creatine and creatinine. Creatine is a compound created by vital organs in your body, and in turn, it supplies energy to your muscles. When your muscles metabolize through everyday movement they use up this energy from the creatine, and in turn, muscles give off a waste by-product called creatinine.
This creatinine is then passed through your kidneys in your blood, and peed out in your urine. I test my creatinine levels regularly; the test results tell me whether or not my daily routine of eating less harmful foods, and exercising properly, is working.
Experiment On Myself
I hate seeing high creatinine levels in my monthly blood tests; they tell me that I’m not following my daily routine properly. I experiment on myself all the time with proper foods and exercise to find the perfect balance; if one thing doesn’t work, I try another.
It is very difficult to do at times, a person still has to go on with everyday life, you can’t shelter yourself from friends and family; it’s impossible. I try my best to control my creatinine levels, of course my incentive is to feel good and restore energy to my system, but it doesn’t always work.
Damaged Blood Vessels In My Kidneys
I only recently, at the age of 63, found out that prolonged blood pressure caused by stress, damaged the blood vessels in my kidneys; I now have chronic kidney damage, it can’t be repaired. At least now, after all these years, I know why my body reacts the way it does and I can find ways to deal with the problem.
If you have a similar problem please read the rest of my website, look at what I do, and share your information with me on how you handle the problem. Hopefully, we can help each other out.
Have a great day
