Can A Diabetic with Creatinine 155 Eat Egg White
Question: My mother is diabetic, creatinine level is 155 mmol/l, can she eat egg white?

Answer: Normal creatinine level ranges from 59 to 106 umol/L. Your mother’s creatinine is obviously higher than the normal range. It means her kidneys have been severely damaged, but she is still in inflammatory damage period. With timely treatment, it is possible for her to bring down elevated creatinine level. And diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure. How many years of diabetes does she have? Besides elevated creatinine level, does she have any other symptoms such as proteinuria, retinopathy, etc? Generally speaking, with diabetes over 10 years, it is likely for patients to have Diabetic Nephropathy.

She can eat egg white moderately.

Egg white is high quality protein, which can provide the essential amino acids so as to maintain the normal function of body. That is why she can eat egg white.

Too much egg white may worsen her Diabetic Nephropathy

For Diabetic Nephropathy patients, they usually have proteinuria. Too much protein intake can worsen proteinuria, while massive proteinuria can speed up glomerulosclerosis and impair renal function. That is why she can not eat too much egg white. How many grams she can eat depends on her medical condition.

How to control Diabetic Nephropathy better?

Besides diet, it is suggested for her to follow a systemic treatment. In Shijiazhuang Hetaiheng Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, we usually use Toxin-Removing Treatment. This treatment can eliminate excess sugar, creatinine, urea, fluid and other wastes from body to make internal environment clean. It can also dilate blood vessels and remove stasis to improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into kidneys so that essential elements such as oxygen, nutrients and active ingredients of medicine can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery. Moreover, it can restore the balance of anti-inflammatory cytokines and pro-inflammatory cytokines to reduce renal inflammation and control the disease from getting worse.

After about one week’s treatment, you will see floccules in urine. After about half month’s treatment, her creatinine level will be reduced by at least 10%. And her blood sugar level will come down and be stabilized. After about one month’s treatment, her disease will be under control, and renal function will get improved.

A diabetic with creatinine 155 can eat egg white, but do not eat too much. For more information on Diabetic Nephropathy treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
