When the kidneys function normally, they remove creatinine from the bloodstream and eliminate it in the urine. When kidney function declines, creatinine builds up in the blood stream and causes problems that include fatigue, itchy skin and nausea. Special dietary restrictions help reduce creatinine levels.
So how to reduce high creatinine at home and free treatment ? Let's learn about how to lower creatinine natutally
1. Keep Vegetarian Diet Avoid High Protein
Dietary sources of creatine and creatinine are only found within animal products, therefore you will be reducing the burden of “extra” creatine and creatinine circulating through your blood by eating a largely plant based diet.
When protein is broken down, like any other food, it produces certain waste products. One of these is urea, which damaged kidneys have trouble filtering out of the bloodstream. Most renal diets require you to monitor and limit your protein intake.
Among many other reasons... ask a doctor
2.Avoid strenuous physical activity
Strenuous physical activity can decreasing the breakdown of creatine into creatinine.
3.Avoid Nettle leaf tea
It is important to avoid foods that will further dehydrate the body. Caffeinated beverages, such as coffee, tea and colas should be replaced with regular water or fruit juice. At least 64 ounces of fluid should be ingested daily.
We need sodium, but most of us consume far more than we need. Avoid foods with added salt, including nuts, bacon, pickles, olives, sauerkraut and luncheon meats. Watch out for salt in processed food products including canned soup, canned vegetables, sauce mixes and bouillon cubes. Carefully monitor the amount of sodium you consume. Controlling your salt intake may also make it easier for you to control your fluid intake.
5.Alpha lipoic acid:
And one that I recommend every kidney disease sufferer begin right away. It helps provide energy to the kidneys, it helps nutrialise toxins to make them harmless to the body (so elimination does not damage the kidneys), it helps improve kidney function, and of course helps lower creatinine levels.
It maybe be better known for weight management, but believe it or not it has another trick up its sleeve. Chitosan supplementation in clinical studies reduced urea, creatinine and cholesterol levels in the blood, and increased haemoglobin production in patients with chronic kidney disease.
