Hi, doctor. I am a female with lupus nephritis. And I have been on SLE for 6 years. Here I want to know what is the best food that a patient with creatinine 3.7 should have.
Lupus nephritis is a common complication of SLE which belongs to autoimmune disease. SLE can affect not only kidneys also other organs like heart, skin, brain, etc.
Lupus nephritis means the kidney inflammation caused by SLE. If the condition can not be controlled well, kidney function will be impaired, which causes a series of symptoms including high creatinine level. Creatinine 3.7 means the condition is already in stage 3 chronic kidney disease which means the moderate reduction in kidney function, but it is such a stage which can still be reversed. Because our kidneys have very strong compensatory ability, the creatinine level will not increase until about 40-50% of kidney function is lost. So creatinine 3.7 is enough to arouse your attention.
It is true that healthy foods can help reduce creatinine levels to a certain degree. But there is no a eating plan that is right for every patient. The diet suggestions depend on the specific symptoms and results of lab tests, so exact diet suggestions can not be given here.
It is easy for us to understand that creatinine 3.7 can naturally go back to normal level if kidneys can work normally again through eliminating SLE, repairing kidney damage, recovering renal function and adjusting immune system.
