Is Vitamin C Harmful To People With high creatinine levelGenerally speaking, people with high creatinine level are recommended to eat more foods and fruits that are rich in vitamin C.

What causes elevated creatinine?

Actually, there are two main reasons that can cause elevated creatinine said by experts. On the one hand, as we all know that creatinine is a product from meat taken by our daily diet everyday and sometimes when people eat too much meat that is difficult to absorb by our body, their creatinine level will increase suddenly. On the other hand, simply put, creatinine phosphate is stored in skeletal muscle and it is used to generate energy. Creatinine is the breakdown product of this process. Then, creatinine is filtered by the kidney. However, if your kidney fails to work properly and it can not excrete the creatinine as normals, the result shows up as an elevated blood creatinine.

Is vitamin C harmful to people with high creatinine level

Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, meaning the body uses what it needs and eliminates the rest and then filtered through the kidneys.

Because large intake of vitamin C may show falsely elevated creatinine levels, you need to control the vitamin C intake strictly. In addition, if you have high creatinine, indicating decreased kidney function, your kidneys may have difficulty excreting large amounts of vitamin C ,resulting in toxicity.
