What Kind of Food Can Help Lower Creatinine LevelWhat kind of food can help lower creatinine level? No one want to take any medicine both herbal and western, if they can reduce their elevated creatinine level through foods that they eat. Fortunately, some foods do have such a benefit for people with advanced kidney disease. Here, there is an overview of these foods.

Fruits and vegetables have a function of diuretic

In some cases, people who have high creatinine level have less urine than before, so more and more wastes including creatinine build up in the blood. In view this, increasing patients’ urine output can eliminate more wastes from the body. Watermelon, white gourd, celery, etc, all belong to this kind of foods.

Low-protein foods

Creatinine is a product of protein. If people with high creatinine level consume excess protein, it will increase the workload on the damaged kidneys and cause higher creatinine level. Therefore, people whose kidneys are damaged severely are usually recommended to eat high-quality foods rather than high-quantity foods.

Drink relatively more water

If you still have enough urine, drinking more water especially pure water can help cleanse the urinary tract and increase the urine output. As a result, elevated creatinine level can decline to some extent. However, if you can’t urinate, this advice isn’t suitable for you.

Herbal tea

Dandelion root, nettle leaf, salvia, etc, all are common herbal tea, and you can buy them at any Chinese herbal shop. Drinking a glass of herbal tea one daily is able to protect the remaining kidney function and increase the rate of kidney filtering wastes including creatinine.

Fruits high in vitamin C

Vitamin C has a benefit of improving the regeneration of new tissues and boosting immune system. Cranberry and many other fruits can help achieve this goal. You can consume them, according to your specific condition.

Although the above foods can help lower high creatinine level, not all people can consume the above foods. Therefore, you are suggested to consult the doctor and make a diet plan in detail.
