Herbs to Lower High Creatinine for Polycystic Kidney DiseaseHigh creatinine level is a sign of kidney damage for people with Polycystic Kidney Disease. Some herbs can help these patients solve this problem.

High creatinine level in PKD

Each kidney contains more than one million of nephrons in which glomeruli are responsible for purifying blood to remove waste products including creatinine from the body. In PKD, fluid-filled structures can cause damage to nephrons as they become large and large. When more than 50% of nephrons are damaged, excessive creatinine will build up in the body so as to cause high creatinine level.

If this problem happens on you, Chinese herb that can help lower high creatinine level is one good choice for you.

How do herbs reduce elevated creatinine level for PKD?

Chinese herbs, different from western medicines, all originate from natural plant leaf, root, seed, flower or stem. According to the clinical research, some herbs show an outstanding effect on enhancing the kidney filtration process and to increase the output of weak kidneys thus increases the evacuation rate of creatinine. As more and more creatinine is excreted from the body via urine, patients’ creatinine level will come down naturally.

What herbs have such benefits? Here, we would like to first introduce two common herbs: nettle and dandelion root.

Nettle: According to a study published in the Journal of The American Herbalist Guid, patients who are given stinging nettle seed extract show a significant decrease in their serum creatinine levels. In fact, nettle leaf tea can also help lower high creatinine level for PKD patients. You can consume either of them depending on your favor.

Dandelion root: It is known as an herbal diuretic, so it can help increase the output of polycystic kidneys. More urination can take away more serum creatinine.

If you have high creatinine level, please take herbal medicines carefully because some are harmful for you. To guarantee your safe and health, you can consult the online doctor to ask a herb list made for you.
