Why Creatinine 2.6 Is Bad

Why Creatinine 2.6 Is BadYesterday, one patient tells us his creatinine level has risen to 2.6 from 1.8. Also, he has kidney disease. His doctor said it means his condition worsens. He want to know why creatinine 2.6 is bad.

For people with kidney disease, creatinine level can be used as an indicator to reflect whether patients’ kidney condition deteriorates. Creatinine increasing from 1.8 to 2.6 means patients’ condition has progressed into stage 3 kidney disease from stage 2. In view of this, lowering high creatinine level and stopping the progression of patients’ condition is very necessary. How to reduce high creatinine level? Three options may be helpful.

1. Diuretic: For patients in stage 3 kidney disease, most of them still have enough urine. Diuretic is able to increase the kidney output, thus removing more waste and products from the body so as to lower high creatinine level. Some herbal teas are considered as the natural diuretic, such as dandelion root tea and nettle leaf tea. You can try them with doctor’s guidance.

2. Medication: Medications like ketosteril is able to help lower high creatinine level and slow down the progression of kidney disease. However, ketosteril may cause some side effect like hypercalcemia. Therefore, if you are suggested to use these medicines, make sure you are taking correct brand and dose.

3. Dialysis or blood purification: These two methods are usually used when patients’ creatinine level has been quite high, for example, creatinine 8.0. In this condition, only depending on the above methods can’t work very well, both dialysis and blood purification can remove creatinine directly from the body.

Whichever treatment you decide to accept, a healthy diet can play a big effect. This is because some foods such as cranberry, parsley, celery and pomegranate are able to help improve patients’ kidney function or increase the kidney output. To learn more about these foods or above treatment options, you can tell us and we are glad to share with you.
