1. Follow a proper diet

Eat more vegetables and less meat

Increased creatinine and low GFR go hand-in-hand. Animal products contain creatine and creatinine, so your need to limit the amount of animal-based protein. Maintaining a largely vegetarian diet can help reduce other risk factors of CKD, including diabetes or high blood pressure.

Try a low salt diet

Damaged kidneys fail to filter sodium, so diets high in salt can worsen your condition and cause your GFR to worsen. Eliminate salty foods from your diet and eat more home-cooked meals from scratch.

Consume less potassium and phosphorus

Your injured kidneys have difficulty filtering phosphorus and potassium. Stay away from foods high in phosphorus including milk, yogurt, hard cheese, cottage cheese and dried peas. High potassium foods include winter squash, sweet potato, white beans, orange juice, broccoli, pork and banana.

Quit smoking

Smoking can produce more toxins in your body, and those toxins will have to pass through your kidneys. Quiting the habit will ease the burden on your kidneys and improve your ability to remove waste. Besides, smoking can cause or worsen high blood pressure. High blood pressure is closely related to kidney disease so maintaining healthy blood pressure can further improve your GFR.
