4 Ways to Lower High Creatinine Level“Now my creatinine level has been over 300, how to reduce it?”

“Will it progress into uremia after creatinine level goes up?’

In nephrology, such problems are very common. Some time ago, Plos medicine published a survey on the prognosis of patients with renal insufficiency.

According to the statistics of the disease development of more than 1,700 patients in five years, the final result was 4 patients with uremia (0.2%), 19% of whom had improved renal function and removed the label of "renal insufficiency". 34% remained unchanged and 18% made slight progress.

As a result, elevated creatinine does not necessarily lead to uremia, even if kidney function is compromised.

Whether kidney disease can develop uremia or not, and how big is the risk, this will depend on the patient's basic kidney disease, the residual kidney function, disease control, living habits and other factors. Here are four ways to help you lower high creatinine level and control kidney function.

1. Early diagnosis, and early treatment. The focus is on standard treatment.

When creatinine level increases, proteinuria becomes worse and kidney function is less, patients become anxious and seek various remedies. Most kidney disease is chronic, in which the focus is on stabilizing kidney function. If there is acute disorder, it is still possible to restore the function. Some time ago, one of my IgA Nephropathy patients showed that acute interstitial lesion. Steroids worked well, and his serum creatinine gradually decreased from 210umol/l to 92.

2. Protect residual renal function

To control the harmful factors that damage kidney function: albuminuria, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, hyperglycemia, anemia, acidosis, hyperkalemia, etc. Pay particular attention to the interval of 1~3 months of regular monitoring.

3. Pay attention to diet

The emphasis is on a low-protein, low-salt diet. For example, the staple food should choose more low-protein raw materials, such as wheat starch, low-protein rice, potato and so on. Daily salt intake should not exceed 3g. and do not use low sodium salt especially when creatinine level increases in case of high blood potassium.

4. Improve living habits

Stop drinking and smoking. Overworking, staying up and strenuous exercises should be avoided as well.

Of course, when creatinine level increases to over 500 and GFR is 5-15, dialysis or kidney transplant should be done. For Diabetic Nephropathy patients, they may have to start dialysis earlier.

Kidney transplant therapy does not mean the terminal of your life, but a new beginning. Do not lose hope at any time.
