High Creatinine Levels In Blood

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 isMedical Jargon 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 bloodDamaged Blood Vessels 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

    Hi,
    Thanks for sharing. Can you test creatinine levels at home or you have to go to a professional? Do you get your creatinine from foods or a supplement?

    Did stress really lead to yoy kidney damage or an accumulation of things? If you get your creatinine recommended amount, what foods if you use foods contain it?

    Thanks,
    Sofia

      You have to give blood at a Lab. My Doctor gave me a Laboratory requisition that is good for six months. I give blood every month at this particular lab and the next day I can see my results on-line.

      I try to eat foods that have lower potassium and salt levels. This helps my Kidneys get rid of creatinine waste quicker; I pee it out.

      And yes, over a long period of time (40 years) stress caused high blood pressure which in turn caused my kidney damage.

    Hi Mike,

    I’ve never heard of Creatinine before. I do understand that stress and blood pressure can cause some damage to your body. I didn’t realize it would be the blood vessels in your kidney.

    You presented some things here to think about. What was it about this Creatinine that you beware of a problem? Did you feel pain or any symptoms?

    I hope you all the best.

    Thanks for sharing.

      Symptoms can be different for others; my symptoms are nausea (sickly feeling in my stomach) and weakness. Exercise is good for you but I found out that during extreme exercising (like hiking up mountains) my muscles metabolized at a faster rate giving off a lot of creatinine waste which goes into my blood and then is processed through my kidneys and peed out. Since my kidneys aren’t working at full potential it takes a longer time for them to process the creatinine waste and I feel nausea and weakness while waiting. Sometimes the feeling will go away in 5 minutes, sometimes much, much, longer.

      Prolonged blood pressure and medication can affect people differently; this is what it does to me.

    I have my blood tested every three months. I get everything checked including the these levels checked. I always discuss the numbers with my doctor. I don’t want my creatintine levels to be high because I don’t want to damage my kidneys or any other organs. I try and avoid stress whenever possible because it has so many negative effects on our health.

      Hi Rob,

      I find, avoiding stressful situations if possible, eating the right foods, and a little exercise once in a while do wonders for your blood pressure, which in turn, help your kidneys. I wish you the best.
