Can You Exercise With a Creatine Level of 2.0High creatinine always indicates kidney function damage. Creatinine 2 usually means your are at Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). Can you exercise with creatinine level of 2.0?

To get to know the answer, you should know how does creatinine elevate. Here I will explain to you in details and give you some suggestions. Any questions, please email to us at or leave a message below.

Causes of creatinine 2.0

Normal creatinine levels range from 0.5 to 1.1mg/dl for female and 0.6 to 1.2mg/dl for male. Creatinine 2.0 is much higher than normal ranges. This muscle by-product is produced at a constant rate, and is discharged by the kidneys. Therefore, elevation of creatinine reflect your kidneys filtration function is damaged.

Effects of exercise on creatinine

Since creatinine is produced after muscle metabolism, long term or strong exercise can cause slight elevated creatinine. However, if your kidneys can work normally, they can remove creatinine adequately. Creatinine is so high that you should be concerned that your kidneys are moderately damaged.

Under such condition, strong exercise will aggravate your condition. However, mild exercise can help boost the immune system to prevent some symptoms such as infection, fatigue, fever, etc. You may as well take Yoga, Tai Chi, walking, swimming, and biking.

Treatment for creatinine 2.0

Treatment should be based on the real causes. You can slow down the progression through a low protein and low sodium diet. If necessary, medicines may be prescribed by your doctor. Diuretics are the common used medicine to increase urine output so that excess creatinine can be filtered. However, long term and large dosage of such a medicine will cause adverse effects. Therefore, I recommend you to take traditional Chinese herbs such as dandelion, nettle, rhizome of lalang, poria cocos and corn silks, etc. Except certain medicines, some therapies such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, and Acupuncture can improve the absorption of oral medicines.
