  • Creatinine number?




    trying to raise my Creatinine number, I am at 23, any help for this new member? ~Kaye~

    I thought lowering creatinine number is the objective. I don't understand much about this process. I was placed on dialysis because my creatinine was too high at 8 and was being monitored to get it down to an acceptable number...under 5.

      Veryspeshul,

      Do you have CKD? Why do you want to bring up your numbers?

        Seems like as a newbie to this that you are mixing up your numbers. 23 is probably your eGfr score and your creatinine probably reads something like 2.25 (1.0 and above is abnormal) There is a Calculator where you put in age and creatinine score to get egfr
        I'm with you I just dropped from 18 to 15 was 22 in fall. I'm scared and fearful of what my doc will say on Thursday. I'm thinking all the antibiotics and prednisone from my Bronchitis this winter didn't help.
        I feel very frustrated trying to figure out what to eat

          you want your creatinine to go down and your egfr to stay up or go up.
