I am so sorry to share you my feeling.This day is not nice to me and to others in our family. My nephew is diagnosed with high creatinine, and he just turned 28. My nephew is about to leave for Riyadh , Saudi Arabia and his medical record banned him to leave for work there as Crew in McDonald Riyadh.I brought him to Madonna and Child hospital laboratory to re-test his creatinine, and it remains the same high.I also brought him to our family doctor for diagnosis and medication, but he is referred to another doctor at Medical Plaza Hospital to have an ultra sound for his kidney. My God, at all my expense because his father, my brother who also works in Saudi does not receive his salary for 8 months now. He is my brother, who, I sent $200 US dollars 3 months ago to assist his expense. This time, he and others just received a food allowance 450 Riyals too small money almost P7,000 Philippine money, but this allowance given by their company is good for 3 months. No choice, I have to bring my nephew to Medical Plaza for ultra sound and medication. I hope nothing serious happens in his kidney. My nephew loves to eat junk foods, drink colas, and canned goods.ALL WRONG! Photo Credit: By Free Photos at search engine

your nephew has chronic kidney disease? a management of this is dialysis to remove the excess creatinine in his blood, and filter his blood off the toxins as well. is he having edema in his lower extremities now? how about puffy face? i hope he does not have these manifestations at all.

@ridingbet, My nephew does not feel anything as sign of kidney failure. I hope he is fit to work in Riyadh as crew in McDonald there.

@cacay1 but having a higher than normal creatinine level in his blood will give him more harm than good, my friend, unless he is properly managed.

I hope his creatinine is not more than 10 because he might be advised for a dialysis. I have a cousin whose creatinine is more than 10 he was advise to have a dialysis 2x a week until his creatinine will be down. Don't be sad friend, all these things that happened to us is only a trial from Our Creator. Don't lose hope.

@cacay1 If the creatinine is more than 10 that is already high and need for a dialysis.

Aw.. So sad to hear. I keep wondering myself often why awesome people get bad stuff on them. But only thing I can think of that its because they are awesome and be themselves. That somehow triggers problems. But I believe you can fight it back and win this in the end. Just keep fighting for it and have faith. Everything should be fine in the end.

@Varokani, Thanks, I brought my nephew to the Nephrologist, and we're told, he has no problem of his kidney. The cause of his high creatinine is blood pressure, high 40/100.He is still advised not to eat those foods he loves to eat. He is fir to work as McDonald crew in Riyadh, K.S.A. Thanks for being nice.

@Varjokani The doctor told me and my nephew, there is nothing wrong with his kidney. His high creatinine issue is due to his blood pressure, high, but prescribed a medicine.

@cacay1 Saudi Arabia has also less money due to oil price crash - they are cutting costs and that is why many are delaying payments to their workforce - siva

All we can do is to hope it is not as serious as it might be. Why has your brother not received his salary for 8 months that sure does not sound right.

@maezee, Creatinine is part of our blood and will be triggered if there are certain problems of the body like kidney trouble, high uric acid, high blood,etc. and high blood is the cause why my nephews creatinine gets higher 3. 89. The limit is 1.2. The doctor told us this mor ing here, my nephew does not have problem of his kidney. What makes his creatinine high is his blood pressure, so high for many months now 40/100.

His diet habit could be the culprit. He must do some cleansing to at least help; but the doctors can advise best what to do. You are a good sister and an aunt, and God will bless you for that kindness.
