Oat is indispensable in daily diet. But many high creatine patients wonder whether they can eat oat or not and whether it is good for lowering creatinine level. Oats can benefit your creatinine level from the following aspects:
-Boost immune system

-Reduce high blood pressure
High blood pressure may also contribute to high creatinine level. A daily serving of whole oats rich in soluble fiber can decrease high blood pressure and reduce the need for anti-hypertensive medication.
-Stabilize blood sugar
If high creatinine level is caused by Diabetic Nephropathy, eating oat is helpful for controlling blood sugar. Because oat is high in fiber. A high fiber diet will stabilize blood sugar levels and will not cause the mid-morning slumps, which comes from eating a lot of sugar and carbs in the morning. Aside fiber, oat also contains rich magnesium, which regulates the body’s insulin and glucose levels.
Many people with high creatinine may also suffer from high cholesterol. Beta-glucan in oats has beneficial effects on cholesterol levels.
-Prevent heart disease
Heart disease may worsen the state of illness. A unique antioxidants in oatmeal called avenanthramides, help prevent free radicals from damaging LDL cholesterol, and beta-glucan can lower cholesterol. These benefits can prevent you from developing heart disease.
