Creatinine Reduction — This Is Probably the Biggest Scam in Nephrology
Kidney patients are very afraid of increased creatinine, but it's not that scary.

Some patients become jittery once their creatinine is just a little higher than the normal range, and they will do anything if they can bring the "number" down.

Aixite and Niaoduqing can reduce creatinine? To try them.

Calcium hydroxybenzenesulfonate can reduce creatinine? To try it.

And many health care products can also reduce creatinine, so they are also willing to try.

In fact, this is wrong. If you are too eager to reduce creatinine, you are likely to be deceived. And drug abuse may elevate creatinine higher and higher.

There are lots of ways to do that, but creatinine is just an indicator, not a very toxic indicator, so it's not that scary. For example, in many patients with creatinine over 1,000, their renal function is ok, complications are not obvious, and dialysis is not necessary. In body of kidney failure patients, there are many substances that have higher toxicity than creatinine. Creatinine is just a scapegoat. Simply to bring it down does not have significant effect.

And in many cases, creatinine level and actual kidney function is biased, leading to more rigorous indicators such as cystatin C, endogenous creatinine clearance, and glomerular filtration rate.

When do you need to lower creatinine level?

Infection, dehydration, fatigue, bleeding, staying up, strenuous exercise, use of nephrotoxic drugs, high-salt and high-protein diet, etc., can cause acute kidney injury, and creatinine can rise more than 50% within a week. At this time, the above factors need to be stopped and timely effective treatment should be taken to restore renal function and lower creatinine.

When acute kidney injury occurs:

Those who catch a cold should fight infection;

Those who have dehydration should do fluid infusion;

Those who have haemorrhage should stop bleeding and correct blood volume;

Those who stay up, should immediately change bad lifestyle;

those who do strenuous exercise and have fatigue should have a good rest;

Those who use nephrotoxic drugs should stop the medicine and treat the disease accordingly.

Those who have high salt and high protein diet should changed to low salt, high quality but low quantity protein diet, etc.

If you don't have acute kidney damage, do the following three things:

1. Treat the root cause

To use traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) to promote positive energy so as to defense against external evil. Hormones and immunosuppressive agents respond to immune inflammation. And secondary nephropathy should treat the primary disease.

2. Treat symptoms

To control blood sugar level, high blood pressure, uric acid, lipid level and proteinuria. To correct anemia and acidosis.

3. Diet

Low salt, low fat, low phosphorus, low potassium, low purine,a low amount of high quality protein diet.

These are ways to help you stabilize creatinine level. As long as you can do them well, you can protect your renal function and creatinine won’t rise further. Hope you do not believe those folk prescription to lower creatinine. For more information on high creatinine, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
