High Creatinine Level: What to Eat

High Creatinine Level: What to EatYou can’t image how many patients have consulted us what to eat with high creatinine level. Dietary treatment is always considered as the most natural remedy, so it is best to lower high creatinine level through diet modifications. What foods have such an effect?

Limit the intake of sodium

When the kidneys are impaired, the first dietary change is often to reduce sodium intake. Salty condiment, canned foods, processed foods, fast foods, cheese and some other foods are particularly high sources of sodium. You should pay attention to these foods whether you are eating at home or outside.

Choose fruits and vegetables with rich vitamin

It is proven that foods high in vitamin especially vitamin C can help increase the rate of kidney filtering wastes including creatinine and prompt the regeneration of new tissues. Berries and cabbages are always recommended to people with elevated creatinine level. For more information about these fruits and vegetables, you can consult the online doctor or leave a message in the form below.

Avoid high-potassium foods

When kidneys are damaged largely, they can’t keep the potassium balance optimally. High-potassium foods can increase the burden on impaired kidneys, so you should avoid high-potassium foods. Peas, radish, celery, watermelon, banana, white gourd, etc, all contains too much potassium.

Eat low-phosphorus foods

Just like potassium, excess phosphorus also builds up in the body easily if kidney function is damaged badly, so having a low-phosphorus diet is necessary. High-phosphorus foods include animal giblets, sesame, peanut, juglans regia L, honey, yolk, etc.

Choose high-quality protein

Creatinine is one product of protein. Low-quality protein can produce more wastes that will build up in the blood and raise your creatinine level. Developing a low-protein diet is able to reduce the burden on the kidneys to a large extent.

These diet suggestions may change with the development of your condition. If you want to know a detailed and correct food list, welcome to consult the online doctor for free. Leaving a message in the below form is also OK.
