Can Flax Seeds Increase High Creatinine Level for PKD PatientsHigh Creatinine Level is an obvious symptom When PKD progresses into the moderate or advanced stage. Usually, patients need to develop a friendly-kidney diet so as to lower creatinine level and protect kidney from the further damage. Some patients have doubt: can flax seeds increase high creatinine level for PKD patients?

To be frank, there is no evidence that prove that flax seeds can increase creatinine level, but it’s my duty to tell you, if your potassium level is higher than the normal range 3.7-5.2mEq/L, it is better to avoid taking flax seeds. As a matter of fact, patients with Polycystic Kidney Disease can consume flax seeds because of its many health benefits. And patients can get the following benefits:

Prevent cardiovascular diseases

Plant omega-3 help the cardiovascular system through several different mechanisms, including anti-inflammatory action and normalizing the heartbeat.

Lower high cholesterol level

Besides, eating flaxseed may also help lower cholesterol levels. The level of LDL or bad cholesterol in the bloodstream has been linked to an increased risk of heart disease, obesity, diabetes and metabolic syndrome.

Lower high blood pressure

It is researched that flax seeds lower blood pressure in hypertensive patients. High blood pressure is a leading cause for kidney disease, so it is crucial for hypertensive patients to keep high blood pressure under control.

Through the above analysis, we can see that although flax seeds cannot lower high creatinine level, they can help protect kidney from the further damage for PKD patients. If you have any questions, please be feel free to contact our Online Doctor or leave a message below directly.
