Under 6 Kinds of Conditions, Elevation of Creatinine Is ReversibleSerum creatinine is an important indicator of renal function, and an increase in creatinine means that kidney function has been damaged by more than 50%. How to reduce creatinine and prevent the further deterioration of renal function? This has become a special concern of many kidney patients.

However, it must be understood that the root cause of creatinine elevation is the decline of renal function, resulting in the inability of creatinine metabolism. When kidney function is damaged, it cannot be reversed, so simply reducing creatinine is of little significance. Even if it is temporarily lowered, kidney function can not be restored, and after a period of time, creatinine level will go up again.

If you have creatinine elevation caused by these 6 conditions, you should lower it timely to prevent the disease from getting worse. And under these conditions, timely treatment can help you reverse the disease.

1. Immune inflammatory reaction caused by infections

Infection is an important cause of relapse, which can cause immune inflammation in the body and lead to accumulation of toxins, and damage to renal function will not only lead to increased proteinuria, but also to increased creatinine. Remove the infection focus in time to avoid further development of renal function and maintain the stability of creatinine. To prevent infection, you should pay attention to the prevention of cold, pay attention to personal hygiene, exercise to improve immunity, and if necessary, get a vaccine.

2. Reduced blood flow caused by severe dehydration

Some patients need to limit their water intake, such as those with severe edema. And fever, water metabolic disorder and so on can reduce water content in body, increase blood concentration and decrease renal blood flow, leading to increased creatinine. In such a case, patients should adjust the intake of water so as not to aggravate the condition.

3. Nephrotoxic drug damage

Kidney disease treatment requires exposure to a number of drugs, including traditional Chinese medicine and western medicines. Some patients rush to take some drugs that contain nephrotoxicity, resulting in kidney damage and increased creatinine. If the drug is stopped immediately, the condition of increased creatinine will be improved. But you must be aware that some drug damage is irreversible. To avoid it accelerating kidney failure, never misuse drugs.

4. Renal function instability caused by high blood pressure

After renal insufficiency stage, patients may have high blood pressure of different degree. High blood pressure leads to abnormal water and sodium metabolism in the body, poor renal blood circulation will increase the burden on the kidneys, and decreased renal function will make creatinine level rise. Long-term stability of blood pressure below 130/80 contributes to the stability of creatinine.

5. Over tired

Some patients will do strenuous exercise to improve their immunity, while some patients who are still staying up late for working, resulting in excessive fatigue, which will lead to increased toxin metabolism in the body and increased creatinine. These bad habits should be changed. In the daily, you can choose some gentle exercises, such as jogging and gymnastics, etc.

6. Poor diet management

Excessive intake of high-protein, high-salt and high-fat foods will not only aggravate proteinuria, but also lead to increased creatinine. You should strictly abide by the "five low and one high" dietary principle.

Besides, some commonly used drugs, such as ACEI and ARBs have the side effect of creatinine elevation. After adjusting the medicine, creatinine level will go back.

Under the above 6 conditions, the elevated creatinine can be reversed with proper treatment. But if you can not treat it timely, creatinine will increase continuously, which will worse kidney function and speed up kidney failure. Therefore, when you have high creatinine level, you should firstly find out the cause and then take corresponding measures.
