How To Reduce Creatinine Levels With Kidney Failure

2013-08-24 14:41

Creatinine is a way to check your kidney function. If your creatinine level is higher than normal level, it may indicate your kidney function has been impaired. The normal level of creatinine of male is 0.6mg/dL to 1.2mg/dL, female is 0.5mg/dL to 1.1mg/dL. Creatinine is a chemical waste and it is filtered and eliminated when it passes through kidneys. Generally, the higher creatinine level is, the more serious kidney damage is. Patients with kidney failure need to reduce the level of creatinine.

How to reduce creatinine levels?

1. Control the intake of protein. In general, patients with kidney failure should limit the intake of protein. They can eat some low protein foods to maintain the normal nutrition of the body. However, if patients are doing dialysis, they need to ingest much more protein and some of them should be high quality protein, like fish, lean meat and milk.

2. Do not eat much meat. Because meat contains high creatine which can increase the level of creatinine. Patients with high creatinine had better not eat too much meat.

3. Reduce the intake of sodium. Kidney’s damage results in excessive fluid and sodium building up in the body, leading to edema. Sodium tends to promote water retention. So patients need to avoid salty foods, like pickles, bacon, potato soup, cheese sauce, etc.

4. Eat some vegetables and fruits according to their own condition. If there is much potassium in patients’ body, patients should stay away from high potassium foods, for example: spinach, carrot, banana and orange. If patients with kidney failure suffer from hyperphosphatemia, they can not eat nut, yellow bean, gingili. They need to eat foods contained high calcium, like meaty bone, tofu and dried small shrimps.

5. Avoid doing strenuous physical activity. Strenuous exercise can produce more creatinine and increase the level of creatinine.

These are some suggestion to help you reduce high creatinine. In daily life, it can reduce, control or prevent the increase of creatinine. But these can not make you have a normal creatinine. Therefore, if your creatinine is much higher than normal level, you need to receive treatment to reduce the level of high creatinine.
