Vegetarian Diet for Reducing Creatinine 4.0Since red meat is the main dietary source of creatinine, more and more patients choose a vegetarian diet as one part of the treatment plan. What is a good vegetarian diet for reducing creatinine 4.0?

What does creatinine 4.0 mean?

Creatinine 4.0 is much higher than normal creatinine levels (0.5-1.1 mg/dl for female and 0.6-1.2 mg/dl for male). It indicates the kidneys are severely damaged and patients are at Stage 4 Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD0. Without timely treatment, it can progression into Kidney Failure in a short time.

Vegetarian for reducing creatinine 4.0

There are different forms of vegetarianism.

● A vegan does not eat meat or animal products of any kind. In that case, they are suggested to take more plant protein foods, such as beans and bean products. In general, recommended amount of protein is 0.6-0.8 g per kg of body weight.

● Lacto-ovo vegetarians exclude meat from the diet, but will consume dairy products and eggs. Egg white and sugar-free milk are good choices.

● Ovo-vegetarians will include eggs in the diet, but will not consume any dairy products.

● The last form of vegetarianism is semi-vegetarianism. These individuals may consume fish or chicken, but consume no other red meats.

Medication for lowering creatinine 4.0

Only diet cannot solve the underlying problem. To prevent this condition, patients need timely and proper medication. In that case, I recommend you to take traditional Chinese herbs, which can improve blood circulation so that kidneys can get enough blood volume and oxygen to repair the damaged renal tissues. As long as kidney function can be improved, creatinine can be discharged naturally and effectively.
