How to Lower Creatinine with PKDHow to lower creatinine level with PKD? High creatinine level means high levels of toxins in the blood and it is the real reason for PKD patients to start dialysis. Therefore, controlling creatinine level into a lower range will help PKD patients to stay away from dialysis. Well then, how to lower creatinine caused by PKD?

We need overall measures to keep creatinine level into the normal range. We know in cases of PKD, creatinine level increases because of decreased kidney function which always occurs as the consequence of increased and enlarged cysts. These cysts damage kidney tissues and make kidneys fail to function. Therefore, stopping kidney cyst from enlarging and increasing will help to control creatinine level.

Kidney is in charge of discharging wastes like creatinine and urea nitrogen out of our body. When kidney function is decreased, these wastes build up in the blood. Therefore, for PKD patients, aside from protecting residual kidney tissues, impairing these injured kidney tissues is very essential, as only when kidney function is improved, can creatinine level be lowered fundamentally.

Besides, what we eat affect our physical condition directly, so having a diet change is also necessary for PKD patients. The exact diet for PKD patients depend on their illness condition very much. But generally speaking, they need to avoid foods with high protein, high salt and high phosphorus, because these foods can worsen kidney condition and elevates creatinine level. Also, PKD patients usually have low potassium level, so they may need to eat much more foods with high potassium like banana and spinage.

To receive obvious and permanently treatment effects in lowering creatinine level, PKD patients must solve their problem from the root-say improving kidney condition here. Only when the cause of problem be removed, can the problem be solved radically.
