High protein intake will increase extra renal burden, which can worsen kidney damage and thus cause a higher creatinine level. Therefore, high creatinine patients should avoid high protein intake such as egg white, fish and lean meat. However, in order to meet their physical demand, they should take some high quality foods including lean meat, milk and fish.

Creatinine is the end product of meat in our body. As for high creatinine, patients should not take too much meat in daily life.

Drink more water

High creatinine level sometimes is causes by dehydration. Thus, kidney disease patients with no severe edema should drink enough water to avoid dehydration.
