Foods to Be Avoided When Your Creatinine Level Is High

Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2013-12-04 15:28

Foods to Be Avoided When Your Creatinine Level Is HighYour high creatinine level may be a sign of damaged kidneys, because creatinine is usually removed out of body by kidneys. When kidneys fail to work properly, creatinine builds up in the body. Besides medication, food also plays an important role in controlling creatinine. We should avoid some foods when our creatinine level is high. Here is a brief introduction,  you can acquire the more detailed one by emailing to kidneyabc@hotmail.com or leaving us a message and then we will make a personalized dietary plan for you.

Protein-rich food

Protein-rich food such as fish, eggs, poultry, red meat should be avoided. Because creatine is found mainly in such high protein foods. Creatine can be broken into creatinine. However, protein is an essential substance for our body, so we should take in proper high quality protein. How much protein we can take should depend on our state of illness. Generally speaking, 0.6g/kg per day is suggested.

Creatine supplements and vanadium

Supplying extra creatine will not only worsen kidney disease, but also cause heart problems or muscle cramps. For diabetic patients, an overdoes of vanadium will easily increase the creatinine level, so one must consume it only in small amounts.

Foods with high potassium and phosphorous

For patients whose creatinine level is high, their kidneys can not filter potassium and phosphorous out of body, so patients should avoid foods with high potassium and phosphorous, such as various nuts, red chili powder, chocolate, cheese etc.

Caffeine, alcoholic and carbonated beverages

Many people enjoy caffeine, alcoholic and carbonated beverages. Once your creatinine level elevates, you should avoid them, because they have a diuretic effect and may cause dehydration which in turn leads to elevated high creatinine. Fresh fruit juice and herbal tea are recommended.

Hope the information can help you live a healthy life. Best wishes!
