When optimal kidney health is your target, there’s no getting around your diet. Hello and welcome, this is Katherine from Kidney Health.
In this video we are going to see some easy but proven methods to lower creatinine levels naturally, mainly by improving your kidney function.
If you want to take care of high creatinine levels, treating the intrinsic causes is extremely important. And, while we live in a drug-oriented, pill-abusing culture, when it comes to your whole-body health there’s still no denying that food is the best medicine.
A lot of people say that eating healthy should be a no-brainer for everybody but, still, the following superfoods are often overlooked and undervalued.
In the next few minutes, we will make sure that this doesn’t describe you! First we should understand why lowering creatinine should not be the primary target for people with kidney problems.
What is creatinine and why creatinine levels are considered so important? Creatinine is a waste product. The body metabolizes it in the muscles and everyone has it in a certain quantity.
When your kidneys are working correctly, they are able to filter and pass a sufficient amount of creatinine. Now, people with kidney disease or impaired kidney function have been observed to have higher levels of creatinine, especially in stage 3, 4 and 5 of the disease.
In short, creatinine levels increase if the capability of the kidneys to filter wastes in the blood declines, thus making creatinine level a good indicator of your kidney function. This is why the amount of creatinine in the blood is always monitored during routinely blood tests.
