I find this page by accident. When I click the online consultation, a real doctor just appeared in the video. He answered all my questions and made a detailed analysis of my kidney problem.
My father in law is suffering creatinine 340. What are the foods to avoid? I need your suggestion.
Thanks for your question! You are really a filial child. Some foods should be avoided when creatinine level is higher than the normal value(0.5-1.2mg/dl). In this way, further deterioration of kidney function can be prevented or stopped.
To be frank, your father’s creatinine 340umol/l is approximately 3.84mg/dl. And the condition is in stage 3 CKD. Before introducing the foods, I need to ask you some questions.
1. How old is your father?
2. How long does he have creatinine 340?
3. What kind of medicines or treatments are suggested by the doctors?
4. Does he has hypertension, diabetes, infections or heart disease?
Foods to avoid with creatinine 340:
◎ Foods high in protein To lower the burden on kidneys and prevent creatinine from increasing, a low protein diet is essential. Generally, foods including bean products, chicken, peanut, pork liver, rabbit meat and so on. Meanwhile, to meet the physical demand of the body, high-quality protein foods like lean meat, fish, milk are also necessary.
◎ Red meat Creatinine mainly comes from two aspects, one is muscular activity and the other is the meat we eat. So, they should eat less beef, mutton and so on.
◎ Foods rich in potassium or phosphorus Eating too much of potassium or phosphorus foods can aggravate kidney damage, thereby, their intake should also be limited.
High potassium foods: banana, longan, mango, laminaria japonica, spinach and so on.
High phosphorus foods: dairy products, egg yolk, sardine, walnut, peanut and so on.
Besides, the salt intake should also be restricted, if there is severe swelling or high blood pressure. Any doubts, please contact us by leaving message firstname.lastname@example.org. Have a nice day!
