These 8 Kinds of People Can Reverse Kidney FailureSerum creatinine is an indicator of renal function. Although the reference range varies from place to place, it is 30-140 umol/L. If it exceeds 140, it means kidney damage and kidney failure.

Under normal circumstances, chronic kidney failure is irreversible. However, clinically many patients have acute renal injury. In this case, creatinine and kidney function can be restored.

Kidney function can be reversed if you have a rise in blood creatinine caused by these 8 conditions.

1. Infections

Respiratory tract infections (such as colds), digestive tract infections, urinary tract infections, etc., can cause sudden rise in blood creatinine.

2. Too much water loss

Factors such as fever, sweating and low water intake can lead to reduced renal blood flow and a rapid decline in renal function.

3. Nephrotoxic drug

Blood creatinine can be rapidly increased in a short period of time after the use of Chinese and western medicines which have nephrotoxicity.

4. Active stage of disease

Some chronic kidney diseases have active periods, such as Lupus Nephritis. It can cause interstitial inflammatory cell infiltration, aggravate microthrombosis, and elevate creatinine level to the level of uremia. After proper treatment, renal function can be restored.

5. Tiredness

Too much work, lack of sleep, large amount of exercise, and so on will lead to rapid rise of creatinine temporarily, but it generally can be restored.

6. High blood pressure

For kidney patients with high blood pressure, they usually have elevated creatinine and blood pressure.

7. High protein diet

A small portion of creatinine in body is from protein intake. If you have too much protein at a time, your creatinine level may increase suddenly.

8. Taking medicine that can raise creatinine level

Some medications can increase creatinine level, such as the commonly used ACEI or ARBs. They can raise it by about a fifth. But they are not nephrotoxic drugs, blood creatinine elevation is just temporary, and kidney function is not impaired.

Some kidney failure patients hear that kidney function cannot be reversed and become anxious all day. In fact, this problem requires specific analysis of different situations. If you're one of these eight patients, and you don't have to worry about becoming uremia, these kidney declines are completely reversible.
