Creatinine is a breakdown product of creatine phosphate in muscle and is usually produced at a fairly constant rate by the body (depending on muscle mass). However, why does creatinine increase? And how to deal with high creatinine level?
The causes of high creatinine level.
Serum creatinine (a blood measurement) is an important indicator of renal health because it is an easily measured byproduct of muscle metabolism that is excreted unchanged by the kidneys. In most condition, people with poorly functioning kidneys generally develop increased creatinine levels in the blood. Therefore, high creatinine level often occur in people with chronic kidney disease or kidney failure. Actually, our kidney has a strong compensatory ability so that half of renal function can guarantee our body health. However, when kidney are damaged by some factors like long time high blood pressure, high blood sugar level, infections, low immunity and so on, it is common if your creatinine level increases. Because the damaged kidneys fail to discharge extra wastes from blood, especially when your kidney function decrease to less 50%, high creatinine level will occur. Aside from kidney damage, some disease also can increase creatinine levels such as dehydration, heart failure, hypertension, diabetes and so on. In addition, improper diet plan and unhealthy lifestyles can be increase creatinine levels.
The Treatment for high creatinine level.
1. Drink relatively water
Water is the best cleaner of our body and it can help increase urine output so as to discharge extra wastes and toxins to some extent.
2. Avoid strenuous exercises
3. Limit intake of protein and meat.
Blood Pollution Therapy. We have found that the root cause of various kidney diseases is the polluted blood. During the process, many methods are used to cleanse the blood, activating blood, removing stasis and improving self-healing system, according to the patients specific condition. In this way, excessive creatinine can be eliminated effectively.
