Can Creatinine 2.5 Drink Green TeaGreen tea has many health benefits and it is a favored drink all over the world. It has been found that green tea can help lower blood lipid levels, reduce the formation of stones, fight against fatigue, diabetes and hypertension.

However for kidney disease patients with high creatinine 2.5, is it proper that they can drink green tea or not. First we need to know that drinking green tea has some good effects for kidney disease patients. It can help stimulate the kidneys and promote the excretion of urine from the kidneys so as to increase the kidney’s filtration and reduce the retention of wastes and toxins in the kidneys.

However for those that have high creatinine 2.5 or higher and if the creatinine level continues to become even higher, it is recommended that patients should avoid drinking green tea especially strong green tea.

Will green tea affect high creatinine in the blood? High creatinine is often accompanied by high blood pressure and heart problems. We know that green tea contains rich caffeine which can cause rapid heart beat and worsen high blood pressure. At the same time, it can increase burdens to the heart and cause symptoms and discomforts like chest tightness, palpitation and aggravate the severity of heart failure.

It is recommended that patients with high creatinine 2.5 should have more fluid intake if the patients have no serious water retention. More fluid intake can help increase urine output so as to help flush more creatinine and other wastes from the body. However green tea and other caffeine-containing drinks such as green tea and coffee should be avoided because they often worsen high creatinine.

There are actually many natural herbal teas such as cranberry juice, dandelion tea, corn silk tea which are all good for kidney disease patients with high creatinine.
