Can Lemon Help to Lower Creatinine LevelsDietary therapy becomes more and more popular among people around the world. You can not only taste the delicious food, but also benefit from them. There are many health benefits of lemons that have been known for centuries. Can lemon help to lower creatinine levels?

When does creatinine increase?

Creatinine levels may temporarily increase due to dehydration, low blood volume, large intake of meat or side effects of medications. On the other hand, if your kidneys are damaged and cannot work normally, the amount of creatinine in your urine goes down while its level in your blood goes up.

Health benefits of lemon


Lemons increase the rate of urination in the body so that they help flush out creatinine building up in the blood.

Balance PH levels

Kidney is responsible for balancing acid-base. When damaged, it does not only cause high creatinine level, but also acid-base imbalance. Lemons are acidic to the tastes, but are alkaline-forming in the body, helping to restore balance to the body’s PH.

Boost immune system

Lemons are high in vitamin C, which helps to boost immune system. It can protect you from diseases.

Control high blood pressure

Lemons are also good source of potassium, which helps control blood pressure.

Delicious lemon recipes

-Dandelion flower syrup: the lemon juice in this syrup is essential. Dandelion is also helpful for decreasing creatinine levels.

-Asparagus with lemon juice and light herb lemon olive oil salad dressing, which are also beneficial for kidney.


Lemons that are not washed properly may include potentially pathogenic microbes. And pure lemon juice contains acid which is harmful to tooth enamel. In addition, you should limit the intake of lemons when your kidneys can not filter these potassium from the body.
