Will Taking Coffee Daily Increases Creatinine LevelsHigh creatinine always indicate kidney disease. Patients are usually required to avoid or limit taking coffee. Will taking coffee daily increase creatinine level?

Get facts on coffee

In fact, there is no evidence proving that coffee has some untoward effects, such as high creatinine levels. Drinking 200 mg to 300 mg of caffeine per day, equivalent to two to four cups of coffee, is not harmful. However, drinking too much coffee daily might damage the kidneys since it contain high cholesterol level, which can obstruct the blood circulation. Consult your doctor about the right dosage of coffee. You can also email to, and our doctors can give you some suggestions.

Diet restriction for high creatinine

The purpose of maintaining a good diet is not to reduce creatinine but protect the kidney function so as to slow the progression to Kidney Failure. Therefore, people with high creatinine level are suggested to:

● Reduce sodium intake. Patients are required to avoid salty foods such as pickles, processed meats, canned vegetables and fast foods.

● Control protein intake. In general, 0.6-0.8 g per kg of body weight is OK to be consumed. In addition, half of the protein should come from high-quality resources, such as egg white, lean meat, fish and milk.

● Drink moderate fluid. You should drink enough water to keep your body hydrated, and make sure the kidneys can produce enough urine to discharge excess creatinine.


As mentioned above, there is no diet that can reduce creatinine, since it cannot solve the underlying problem. The root cause of high creatinine is the damaged renal function. Therefore, you should find treatments that can protect and enhance kidney function.
