Is it possible to lower high creatinine level to the normal range through diet? Serum creatinine level is normally kept in the range 0.5-1.3mg/dL and in clinic, many conditions can cause elevated creatinine level like improper diet, medicine, chronic kidney failure, creatine supplements and so on. With different causes, patients need to take different measures and they also receive different effects in lowering creatinine level. For elevated creatinine level associated with chronic kidney failure, it is hard to lower creatinine level into the normal range again simply through diet.
What does elevated creatinine level mean for people with chronic kidney failure?
Kidney is the organ that is responsible for discharging excess creatinine in blood. Each of kidney contain about one million of nephron. Clinical experiments show when a group of nephrons are injured, the rest nephron will work more hardly to excrete excessive creatinine. Therefore, we usually feel nothing different in initial stage of kidney disease. Also, this is the reason why early stage kidney problem is hard to be found. For patients with chronic kidney failure, serum creatinine does not increase until a half of kidney function is impaired.
Why I can not get elevated creatinine level lowered to the normal range with diet?
Diet is another factor that can cause fluctuation of serum creatinine, but it does not cause persistent high creatinine level. People who eat lots of meats suddenly may experience elevation of creatinine level, but it usually go back to the normal range after kidneys discharge excess creatinine in blood.
For kidney failure patients with elevated creatinine level, diet changes can help to reduce the production of creatinine, but it can not repair kidney damages and improve kidney function. Therefore, creatinine level can not be lowered to the normal range.
For people with elevated creatinine level associated with chronic kidney failure, to get creatinine level lowered to the normal range, improving kidney function is essential. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a treatment that has been taken by patients from more than 50 countries. It shows great effects in improving kidney function.
