How Much Water Should You Drink to Reduce Creatinine

2014-09-02 08:26

How Much Water Should You Drink to Reduce CreatinineCreatinine is the most acute indicator of how well your kidneys are working. Since the generation of creatinine is stable, high creatinine always means your kidney fail to excrete creatinine with urine. Therefore, they are often recommended to take plenty of water to reduce creatinine. However, how much water should you drink?

Water intake for people with different conditions

- People who have no swelling

If kidney disease patients have no swelling, they can take water freely, because their kidneys can still work normally to produce urine and keep the water balance of the body. Cinnamon mixed in water or spring hog weed powder mixed with water can also help improve overall kidney function and can help lower high creatinine levels.

- People who have swelling

Swelling occurs when the kidneys fail to discharge excessive fluid and sodium adequately. So, if you do not limit the fluid intake, you are likely to see more swollen areas. Sometimes, people with severe swelling feel painful. As for the amount of water, I cannot tell you the specific amount because it is based on your own condition. You can send me your test report to, and I will give you some suggestions in detail.

Strictly speaking, water intake should be calculated by involving your age, weight and urine output.

Other treatments for reducing high creatinine level

1. Keep low-salt diet: High sodium intake will cause water-sodium retention, which will worsen the kidneys, so people with high creatinine are required to keep a strict sodium intake.

2. Doing moderate exercise such as Tai Chi, Yoga, swimming, walking, biking or jogging.

3. Chinese herbal tea: Dandelion, nettle, plantain herb, corn silk, poria cocos are diuretic so that they can accelerate the discharge of wastes and toxins which include creatinine.

4. Other natural therapies: Foot bath, Medicated Bath, Enema, Acupuncture, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy.
