How To Control Uric Acid Levels In Kidney Failure

2015-06-17 07:31

How To Control Uric Acid Levels In Kidney FailureIn addition to high creatinine level, high levels of uric acid in the blood is another reflection of kidney failure. Well, how to control uric acid levels in kidney failure?

Some natural tips for reducing and controlling uric acid levels:

1. Apple cider vinegar

Being a natural cleanser and detoxifier, apple cider vinegar helps remove wastes like uric acid from the body. The malic acid in apple cider vinegar helps break down and eliminate uric acid. Apple cider vinegar also restores the alkaline acid balance in the body and provides anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits. However, do not take apple cider vinegar excessively as it may decrease potassium levels in the body. It may also interfere with diuretic drugs.

2. Cherries

Cherries and dark berries contain chemicals which help reduce uric acid levels. Besides, purple and blue-colored berries contain flavonoids called anthocyanins that help lower uric acid and reduce inflammation and stiffness.

3. A low-purine diet

Purines are nitrogen-containing compounds that break down into uric acid, thus increasing levels in the body. Kidney failure patients with high uric acid levels in blood should steer clear of animal proteins which are high in purine like meats, organ meats, fish and poultry. In addition, mushrooms, beans, legumes, yeast, asparagus are also high in purine.

4. High fiber foods and starchy carbohydrates

You can follow a diet with rich dietary fiber which helps lower uric acid levels by absorbing it and then eliminating it from the body. High fiber foods include whole grains, apples, pears, oranges and strawberries. Moreover, you can also eat foods with starchy carbohydrates like rice, whole grain pasta, potato, oats and bananas.

5. Chinese medicine

Some Chinese medicine can expand blood vessels, prevent inflammation and coagulation, degrade extracellular matrix, provide nutrients for repairing kidney damage. After a period of treatment, damaged kidneys can be repaired to some extent and kidney function will also be improved. Enhanced kidney function can expel excessive uric acid from the blood so as to control uric acid levels radically.

Other factors like cancers, chemotherapy agents and medications may also contribute to high uric acid level in blood. Therefore, proper diagnosis is a must.
