Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2013-10-28 10:59

Foods to Reduce Serum Creatinine and Uric Acid LevelBoth creatinine and uric acid are metabolic wastes delivering into blood and then discharged out of the body by kidneys. Once the serum creatinine and uric acid level is elevated, food therapy and medical therapy are complementary. Thereby, today we would like to talk about what foods to reduce serum creatinine and uric acid level.

According to the characteristics of creatinine and uric acid, our food therapy should begin from two aspects: decline the formation of creatinine and uric acid, and increase the excretion of kidney.

1. Decline the formation of creatinine and uric acid.

Creatinine is generated from creatine, while uric acid comes from purine. In view of this, we give out the following suggestions:

● Manage the intake of meat and fish: Meat and fish are the source of creatine. If taken too much, these foods can raise your creatinine level.

● Avoid animal giblets, crab, mushroom, etc: Animal liver, kidney and brain, crab, mushroom, seafood and so on are high in purine, so they are harmful for people with high uric acid.

● Switch beer and alcohol to water or light tea: Bear or alcohol is a source of purine that can increase uric acid level.

2. Increase the excretion of kidney

It is reported that some foods indeed can help increase urine output so that more creatinine and uric acid can be removed from the body via urine. Read on or consult the online doctor to get a food list in detail.

● Fruits: Some fruits such as cranberry and kiwi fruit contain rich vitamin C that can help improve kidney function, thus eliminating more metabolic wastes.

● Vegetables: Celery, broccoli, parsley, etc, all contains high potassium, while potassium has an effect on increasing urine output. However, if your blood test shows high potassium level, you should limit your intake.

● Enough carbohydrate: As introduced by kidney experts, carbohydrate is able to prompt the excretion of uric acid. Therefore, whole grain is worth a try with doctors’ guidance.

● Herbal teas: Corn silk, cogongrass rhizome, semen plantaginis, etc, can increase the filtration rate of kidneys. Drinking a cup of herbal tea is good to lower serum creatinine and uric acid level.
