Does Ginger Ale Cause more Damage If You Have Elevated CreatinineHigh creatinine always indicate damage of kidney function. You may have to limit something you eat or drink to prevent the kidneys. Does ginger ale cause more damage if you have elevated creatinine?

Ginger ale’s effect on kidney

Ginger ale is considered as one of the best drink for kidney disease patients, since it is low in phosphorous. Like creatinine, high phosphorous levels in the blood will interfere with the absorption of calcium, leading to bone problems and ever cardiovascular diseases.

Therefore, ginger ale can be consumed by kidney disease patients with elevated creatinine, but should be taken with moderation.

Low-phosphorous foods

Lemon-lime soda, ginger ale or root beer, plain water, refined grains, rich milk and lean meat are recommended, while pudding, hard cheese, whole grains, biscuit, dried peas, nuts and seeds, peanut butter, chocolate and colas should be avoided.

Food manufacturers often don't list the amount of phosphorus on food labels. In addition, fast foods and convenience foods have potentially large amounts of phosphorus, which may be used as a preservative, among other things.


Except for phosphorous, potassium, sodium, protein and fluid may also need to be limited for people with high creatinine. The specific recommended amount is base on your own illness condition. You should talk with your doctor or dietitian. You can also send your test report to, and we are glad to give you some suggestions for free.

Lower creatinine

Diet is indeed important, while it cannot solve your problem. To lower creatinine, you have to take medication. However, traditional over-the-counter medicines can just help you control symptoms instead of reducing the formation and creatinine. You may as well take traditional Chinese herbs, which can expand blood vessels, fight against inflammation and degrade extracellular matrixes, thus improving blood circulation and enhancing renal function. By this way, creatinine will be excreted in a natural way. If you want more details about our medicines, please be free to contact us!
