What Can I Do With Creatinine 5

What Can I Do With Creatinine 5What can I do with creatinine 5? Kidney disease patients may often ask this question and want to find an effective way to lower creatinine level. With this regard, we first should know what creatinine is.

What is creatinine?

Creatinine is a breakdown product of muscle, and it should be filtered out by our kidneys because the creatinine is toxic to our body.

Why causes high level of creatinine?

The healthy kidneys can filter creatinine out of our body and maintain the blood creatinine level in a normal range(0.5-1.2ml/min). Creatinine has been a fairly reliable indicator of kidney function. High level of creatinine signifies impaired kidney function or kidney disease.

When the kidneys are impaired for any reason, the creatinine level in the blood will increase because of poor clearance of creatinine by the kidneys. Abnormally high creatinine level indicates kidney dysfunction or kidney failure.

Other factors can cause high creatinine level such as dehydration and too much protein intake and strenuous exercise, but when high creatinine level is triggered by kidney disease, it will be severe. This is because our kidneys have strong metabolic ability and strong compensation, and kidney damage can not induce high creatinine level until more than kidney function is damaged. In this case, you must take effective treatment to control high creatinine level.

What can you do to lower high creatinine level?

1. Healthy diet management and healthy exercise

Limit protein, salt and creatine intake can help control high creatinine level by reducing build up of metabolic wastes and lightening burdens of kidneys.

Do not do strenuous exercise which can reduce the muscle breakdown and the production of creatinine as the muscle metabolism is the main source of creatinine in the blood.

2. Renal dialysis

With high level of creatinine, your doctor may offer you dialysis which can excrete excess creatinine out of the body.

3. Immunotherapy

Immunotherapy is a combination of Chinese therapy and western therapy. It is used to repair renal damages and improve kidney functions. As long as your kidney function is improved, excessive creatinine and other metabolic wastes such as blood urea nitrogen and uric acid can be discharged out of the body to some extent. In this way, high creatinine level can be reduced.
