Reference ranges for creatinine levels vary by age and body type, but normal for women is 0. 5 to 1. 0 mg/dl, for men 0. 7 to 1. 2 mg/dl. Muscular adults will have more. Elderly have less. Levels of over 10. 0 are dangerously high in adults.
The short answer is anything over 1.0 mg/dl (milligrams per deciliter of blood) is considered dangerous, although your doctor would probably say a level of up to 1.2 mg/dl is okay if you are a male in excellent physical condition. The older and less muscular you are, the lower the level should be.
Creatinine is found in a person's blood and urine. It measures how well a person's kidneys are functioning. A rise in creatinine level indicates a problem with a person's kidneys. A dangerous level varies depending on a persons' age and body type. Generally a measurement over 1.0 is worthy of concern.
Dangerous creatinine levels differ with age, the older you become the lower that level will become. Ideally a creatinine level around one is okay, however a level less than one and a half in a young adult is alright. It is hard to determine a definite number but if you follow these guidelines you should be fine.
Creatinine can be measured in the blood or urine. Normal levels are 0. 5 to 1. 1 mg/dL. Any rise in creatinine 0. 5 or above normal levels can indicated a problem with your kidneys and therefore could be considered dangerous.
It depends on the age. In older adults, there is a much lower verge for high creatinine, because creatinine relies on ratio of muscle mass to fat mass. The higher the muscle mass, the higher the creatinine.
I 82 male and had strong shingles 6 months ago and after 2.5 months of
suffering deadly then everything came normal but it took my Energy and
My Creatinine level was 6 months ago 0.9-1.0 mgdl, before one month I had my blood test was 1.18mg/dl?
Despite what some claim here, most labs state the normal range for males is up to 1.2, some labs state 1.4. Its really disgusting how people can post nonsense on the web to try and scare people. It also varies from each test.
