Serum creatinine level is an important index of renal function and also an important indicator to judge whether you need dialysis or not. Therefore, renal patients always concern about the changes of creatinine level. How to lower creatinine level and prevent it from increasing further?

To lower creatinine level, one key point should be realized.

The formation of blood creatinine is divided into two parts. Endogenous creatinine is mainly the product of muscle metabolism, and exogenous creatinine is mainly produced after consuming meat. Creatinine itself is a kind of waste, which is filtered out of body by kidneys. But when renal function is impaired and GFR decreases, creatinine can not be passed out of body, leading to its accumulation. That is why your serum creatinine level will increase.

Therefore, to reduce the accumulation of creatinine, you should not only reduce meat intake and avoid strenuous activity, but also restore renal function, which is the key point.

Can you only wait for dialysis with high creatinine level?

However, we all know that renal dysfunction is irreversible, hence to avoid the elevation of creatinine, we should avoid the progression of kidney disease. Two points should be done. One is to control proteinuria, high blood pressure and other symptom development, the other one is to avoid factors that can speed up the progression, such as infection, nephrotoxicity, improper diet, etc.

Why do some people say that creatinine level can be reduced by some methods and they are very effective?

If you just want to lower creatinine level, some methods can help you, for example, long-term vegetarian diet and not meat consumption, which can reduce the source of creatinine. Enema can speed up the metabolism of creatinine in body. some medications such as calcium hydroxybenzene sulfonate to reduce creatinine level. Those methods are only to decrease creatinine level temporarily. Though creatinine level reduces with these methods, your kidney condition does not get improved at all.
