We usually take blood sample to check the renal function. One of the most important indicators is blood creatinine, which reflects the ability of the kidneys to filter waste. Some health problems affect this function and raise levels of creatinine which is harmful. How should we reduce the creatinine?
Creatinine is metabolism waste of the food we take in and changed to energy needed by the body; it is the metabolism of useless waste, usually filtered by the kidneys and excreted in the urine, is an important benchmark for renal function, creatinine level is generally measured by the blood test. Normally, creatinine levels in urine are much higher than in the blood.
Note drinking water, in principle, drink 6-8 glasses of water every day to prevent water shortage. When water is scarce, the body fluid get concentrated, urine volume reduced and creatinine increase. But drinking too much water can raise blood pressure and increase kidney pressure. Find a balance between water scarcity and water excessive. Limit activity. In strenuous exercise, food changing speed to energy is fast and produces more creatinine. But there are many benefits of exercise, too. It should not be abolished, but only remove high intensity activities, such as taking walking and yoga instead of running and basketball. Sleep well! During sleep, most of the body's functions decline, including levels of metabolism, resulting in a decrease in the rate of creatinine production and give time for the kidneys to excrete the accumulated creatinine. Make sure you sleep 6-9 hours a day, and the lacking of sleep will reduce the whole body fulfilling normal tasks and reduce the removing ability of kidneys.
Drugs are double-edged sword, some may damage or potential damage kidneys; but some have treatment effects for kidney disease. If you are suffering from kidney disease, pay attention to drugs that dealing with cold or pain; long-term utility of such drugs are harmful to kidney, such as Bloven, Terro, etc.; some nutritional supplements may also increase creatinine, should be avoid. You'd better discuss it with your doctor before you use it.
Salt restriction. Eating too much salt results in fluid retention, elevated blood pressure, and elevated creatinine levels. The daily salt intake should be in 2-3g, bottled sauce and canned soup have high salt content, eat less of those! Pay attention to some nutrients. Some nutrients are conductive to protein metabolism of creatinine; the protein powder which is not a problem for ordinary people, athletes and bodybuilders will consume a lot of them, then extra creatinine was stored in the body. In the case of kidney dysfunction, even ordinary people should avoid it.
