Are there effective treatments to decrease creatinine from blood? Since creatinine is mainly removed by kidneys, creatinine level in blood is always used as one indicator of kidney functioning state. Too much creatinine builds up in the blood that will cause damage to many organs including kidneys. Therefore, it is a must to lower creatinine level in blood, if it is higher than 1.3mg/dl.
Creatinine generates from creatine during muscular metabolism, so it is necessary to reduce the formation and increase the excretion of creatinine for decreasing creatinine from blood. In view of this, we give out the following treatment plans.
1. Avoid strenuous exercise
Strenuous exercise or overwork can increase muscular metabolism that can produce more creatinine. Normally, kidneys can filter out additional creatinine successfully. However, with diseased kidneys, extra creatinine can raise creatinine level in the blood quickly. Therefore, people with high creatinine level had better do gentle exercise.
2. Detoxification medications
Some Chinese medicines and western medicines can stimulate kidney filtration rate and increase creatinine excretion. For example, ketosteril and Astragalus membranaceus just has this benefit. Nevertheless, not all people with high creatinine level can take these medications. Alway remember to use correct medications.
3. Medicate Bath
With the theory of Chinese medicine external application, medicated bath can give kidney patients many benefits: blood circulation improvement, sweating increase, improved immunity, kidney protection and control of blood pressure. Some of these benefits can help lower creatinine level to some extent.
4. Some drinks and foods
Some herbal tea, vegetables or fruits have the property of diuretic that can increase urine output, so as to take away more waste products including creatinine. With doctor’s advices, patients with high creatinine level can consume them at correct amount.
The above methods do help to decrease creatinine from blood, but they are unable to lower it from the root. This is because they can do nothing for damaged kidneys. From this point, some methods that can repair damaged kidney cells should also be sought. To learn more about these treatments, you can contact us.
