Is Garlic Good for Lowering Creatinine LevelIs garlic good for lowering creatinine level? Of course, garlic is often among the healthy food for people with kidney disease. It has been said to cure just about everything from the common cold and flu to the plague. If your kidney disease is under controlled, creatinine level will decline.

Decrease blood pressure

Due to kidney function impairment, kidney can not regulate the blood pressure. Angiotensin II helps our blood vessels contract thereby increasing the blood pressure. Allicin in garlic inhibits the effects of angiotensin II and helps reduce blood pressure. Besides, red blood cells can convert the polysulphides in garlic into hydrogen sulphide, which dilates our blood vessels and helps control blood pressure.

Reduce cholesterol

Researches have shown that taking 600-900 mg of garlic everyday is helpful in lowering cholesterol levels and reduces arterial plaque formation.


Ajoene in garlic has the function of anti-coagulation, which helps in preventing the formation of blood clots in the body.

Prevent heart disease

Heart disease is the main cause of death for kidney disease patients. The above health benefits of garlic can reduce your risk of heart disease.


The reason why people have kidney disease is because there is inflammation in the kidneys. Garlic has anti-inflammation properties, which can inhibit the inflammation response.

Improve anemia

Kidney disease does not only cause the high creatinine level, but also cause anemia. Garlic may be able to increase our body’s production of ferroportin and help keep iron in circulation as it is needed. Iron is the component of hemoglobin, so in this way, it can improve anemia.

Control diabetes

If your high creatinine level is caused by diabetes, eating garlic is beneficial, for it is considered to regulate blood sugar levels by increasing the release of insulin in diabetics.

Garlic also has other benefits, such as boot immune system and treat hyperthyroidism. Space limited, we do not list them all here. However, too much intake of garlic can cause heartburn and stomach irritation. And if you are taking anti-coagulant drugs, you should check with your doctor before taking garlic. You can also consult our online doctors.
