Nettle tea and high creatinine level
Consulting a senior nephrologist, people with high creatinine level may be suggested to drink one or two cups of nettle tea. Stimulating the kidneys to excrete more water, nettle tea is able to help the body remove more toxins and metabolic wastes from the body and serves as a valuable blood purifier. Therefore, nettle tea is considered as one great natural remedy to lower high creatinine level.
Another advantage of nettle tea is that it helps the body to expel increased and unnecessary amounts of uric acid and bacteria from the body, which in turn limits the incidence of urinary tract infections and lowers high uric acid.
Even though nettle tea has so many benefits for people with kidney disease, please remember that not all kidney disease patients can consume it. If you are on blood-thinning or high blood pressure medications or you have hyperkalemia, choose some other herbal teas as your drink.
