Creatinine are small molecules can pass through the glomerular filtration, little absorption in the renal tubules, the body produces daily creatinine, almost all with the urine, generally not affected by urine volume. When renal dysfunction occurs, creatinine accumulates in the body and becomes a harmful toxin.
How much creatinine will have damage on kidneys?
When the kidneys only have inflammatory, creatinine will be higher than 106μmol / L; when renal inadequacy occurs, creatinine is higher than 186 μmol/L; when renal failure occurs, creatinine is higher than 451 μmol/L; when creatinine is higher than 707μmol / L, the kidneys enter into the end stage of renal failure, also known as uremic period. As the kidney has a strong compensatory function, in general, glomerular damage reaches more than 60%, a rapid rise in creatinine occurs when renal excretion of waste has been impaired.
Patients worried about how to reduce the creatinine, but except treatment of drugs, while the diet will play a very important role, let's see what can be done to reduce creatinine in our diet:
1, control the intake of salt
High creatinine cases, severe renal damage, the need for strict control of salt intake. Usually must pay attention to avoid stealth salt intake, you can try salt-free breakfast and low salt breakfast and other alternative methods. If the patient has high blood pressure, severe edema, heart failure and other serious cases should be strictly limited salt.
2, eat more fresh fruits and vegetables: creatinine, especially to eat foods rich in vitamin B2, vitamin A, vitamin C.
3, high-quality protein intake: In order to avoid further deterioration of renal function, should pay attention to reduce the burden on the kidneys, so to control the total protein intake, then you should choose high-quality protein diet.
4, reduce the burden on the kidneys: It mainly manifests in persisting in the healthy diet habit, avoiding the ingestion of harmful drugs, health care products, especially the kidney toxicity drugs and food.
Of course, when the serum creatinine increases rapidly, treatment measures should be taken and early treatment can reduce the impairment of renal function to a great extent.
