Patients with creatinine 5.1 are more prone to suffer from a lot such as nausea, vomiting, poor appetite, fatigue and so on. Due to much pain, patients are concern more about treatments, namely, how to reduce creatinine from 5.1?
How serious is creatinine 5.1?
High Creatinine Level is a typical symptom among patients with Kidney Failure or Chronic Kidney Disease. In clinic, creatinine is an index to reflect how well your kidneys are working well. The normal creatinine level is kept within 0.5-1.1 for females and 0.6-1.2 for males by the healthy kidneys. Compared to normal level, creatinine 5.1 is indeed higher than the normal range which indicates kidneys have been damaged severely. Generally speaking, creatinine level won’t increase until half of renal function has been damaged. Therefore, patients should pay highly attention to creatinine 5.1.
Well then, how to reduce it for kidney disease patients?
Usually, when creatinine level reaches to 5, dialysis will be recommended to you. It is no doubt that the treatment is a rapid way to reduce high creatinine level. However, it is also a fact that long-term dialysis will induce a series of side effects. Therefore, you should consider well if you decide to take dialysis.
Diet management is one of important parts in reducing elevated creatinine level. The general requirements include low-protein food, low-salt food, low potassium diet, low-phosphorus diet and high-vitamins intake. In addition, patients are suggested to reduce meat intake. And if patients do not suffer from swelling, it is also OK to drink enough water.
