Lower Creatinine 5.5 through Diet

Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2013-05-25 16:31

Temporary increasing of creatinine may be due to dehydration,excess consumption of meat etc.However,if creatinine always keeps higher than normal range,it means that your kidneys are not working well.How to lower creatinine 5.5 through diet?

Creatinine is the byproduct of creatine which is a major part in muscle.In right condition,it can be removed out of body by kidneys.However,when the kidneys fail to work,high levels of creatinine will build up in body. Generally,the higher creatinine,the more serious kidney damage.

Creatinine 5.5 is quite high and it indicates very serious kidney damage. The following diet can have some effects in lowering high creatinine.

You are suggested to take more fruits and vegetables as well as foods high in creatine.But not all fruits and vegetables are good choice as they are often high in potassium.You should check with a dietitian or consult us to know what fruits and vegetables are good for you.

You should avoid foods high in proteins.As the byproduct of proteins is urea,excess urea can put extra strain on kidneys.Meanwhile,foods loaded in salt should also be excluded in diet.Excess salt intake can cause retention of fluid and sodium to worsen high blood pressure.Additionally, the patients with creatinine 5.5 should remove foods high in sodium and phosphorus from their diet.

If the patients can follow the above diet tips,they will help a lot in slowing the disease progression.However,as creatinine 5.5 indicates very kidney damage,diet alone is not enough to improve renal function and lower creatinine.

To lower high creatinine effectively and fundamentally, the principle goal of treatment is to restore the impaired kidney structure and enhance renal function. If the kidneys can work better to remove wasts from body, high creatinine level will reduce fundamentally.
