Is Strenuous Exercise Bad with High Creatinine LevelsHigh creatinine makes people worried since it is always related to some underlying conditions. Is strenuous exercise bad with high creatinine levels?

Strenuous exercise and creatinine

Yes. Strenuous exercise is bad for kidney disease patients with high creatinine levels. Since creatinine is the waste product of muscle metabolism, it will rise when muscle breaks down frequently. Strenuous exercise increase the muscle activities, so this is bad for high creatinine levels. But mild or moderate exercise will not affect your creatinine levels. Therefore, walking, biking, swimming, and Tai Chi are good choices for kidney disease patients. Consult your physician or doctor what type exercise you can do and how long you can last.

Diet and creatinine

A wrong diet may also increase creatinine slightly. That’s why patients are suggested to reduce red meat intake, such as mutton, beef and turkey, etc.

Except for exercise and diet, there are some other factors making high creatinine, such as dehydration, side effects of medicines and age.

Possible symptoms of high creatinine

Creatinine is a kind of waste discharged by kidneys. High creatinine than normal range (0.5-1.1 mg/dl for female and 0.6-1.2 mg/dl for male), it indicated the kidneys are damaged. Therefore, waste and extra fluid cannot be discharged adequately by kidneys. Patients may have symptoms like swelling, fatigue, proteinuria or hematuria, nausea and high blood pressure, etc.

Ways to lower high creatinine

Based on the above analysis, to lower creatinine, you should make some dietary changes and avoid strenuous exercise. In addition, medication is necessary to repair the damaged renal tissues, so as to increase the discharge of creatinine. In that case, I recommend you to take traditional Chinese medicine, which can improve blood circulation and enhance kidney function.
