How to Reduce Creatinine Level Correctly

How to Reduce Creatinine Level CorrectlyClinically, creatinine level is often regarded as an indicator of renal function, so patients often care too much about it. How to lower creatinine level correctly? How to prevent it from increasing? In this article, let’s have a quick look.

The study found that creatinine comes from two sources. One is endogenous creatinine, which comes from the body's own muscle metabolites. The other is exogenous creatinine, which is from meat you eat.

Under normal circumstance, creatinine can be filtered out by kidneys. Once kidney function is damaged, its filtration ability drops, and then creatinine can not be discharged out timely, leading to the elevation of creatinine level.

Therefore, to lower creatinine level, on the one hand, we need to reduce meat intake, and avoid strenuous exercises, but the key is to solve the problem of kidneys. Only when you restore renal function can creatinine be passed out naturally.

It is not possible to restore renal function completely, but it is possible to stop the progression of kidney disease.

To slow down the progression, you need to know two points: (1) to control proteinuria, high blood pressure and other symptoms. (2) to avoid factors that accelerate the acute progression of kidney function, such as infection, nephrotoxic drugs, improper diet, etc.

But you may wonder that some patients can indeed lower creatinine level effectively.

This so-called creatinine reduction is only to lower the value. Some methods can help you do it. For example, long-term vegetarian diet can reduce the source of creatinine; Enema therapy accelerates the metabolism of creatinine in the body; some medicines such as calcium oxybenzosulfonate, niaoduqing and medicinal charcoal can lower creatinine value. But the result is temporary.

Can you only wait for dialysis when creatinine level increases?

Of course not. As long as your creatinine level is maintained at a reasonable range, for example, 200-300 umol/L, there is not risk of kidney failure, so it is necessary to do dialysis.

Now you know how to reduce creatinine level correctly? It is not just to reduce its production, but to restore renal function.
