Do Saunas Decrease Creatinine LevelsWe all know that sauna bathing is helpful for flushing toxins from body. Creatinine is a kind of waste product. Then do saunas decrease creatinine levels?

That is true that saunas help remove toxins from body. Because when you take sauna bathing, you will have deep sweat, through which many toxins such as arsenic, cadmium, lead, mercury and chemicals can be passed out of body. However, creatinine is mainly excreted by kidneys. Simply saunas can hardly decrease your creatinine level.

Benefits of saunas for kidney patients

-Relieve swelling. Sweat is composed of 99% water. That is to say, saunas can help remove a lot of water from body to reduce water retention.

-Sweating in a sauna or steam room dilates the blood vessels, which reduces blood pressure and increases circulation to the skin.

-Alleviate skin itching.

-Improve cardiovascular performance and avoid heart disease.

-Lose weight effortlessly.


If you have high blood pressure or a heart problem, you should pay attention, because the heat can cause circulatory changes including an increased heart rate. Besides, excessive sweating may cause dehydration so as to make your kidney condition worse, thereby, be sure to drink plenty of water.

Other ways to decrease creatinine levels

In our hospital, Toxin-Removing Therapy is often used. This is a systemic treatment, which makes use of your skin, kidneys and intestinal tract to eliminate waste products including creatinine from body. It can also dilate blood vessels and remove stasis to improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into kidneys so that enough essential elements such as oxygen, nutrients and active ingredients of medicine can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery. Moreover, it can relieve renal inflammation and halt the progression of kidney disease. After about half month’s treatment, high creatinine will be reduced by at least 10%. After about one month’s treatment, with the improvement of renal function, creatinine level will be stabilized.
