What Does Creatinine Level 2.3 Mean for FSGS Patients

What Does Creatinine Level 2.3 Mean for FSGS PatientsCreatinine is a kind of waste product passed out of the body by kidneys. From the changed creatinine level, we usually tell how well your kidneys are functioning. What does creatinine level 2.3 mean for FSGS patients?

Creatinine 2.3 means your kidneys are severely damaged.

Healthy kidneys keep your creatinine level into 0.5-1.2 mg/dL. When some of your kidney tissues are damaged, the other kidney tissues proliferate to take the place of the damaged ones to work. Therefore, creatinine level usually does not increase until more than 50% kidney function has lost. Creatinine 2.3 is twice the normal creatinine range, which means you are in CKD stage 3.

How to decrease creatinine 2.3 for FSGS patients?

-To decrease creatinine 2.3, you should reduce muscle contraction. Therefore, you should avoid strenuous exercise. When you have a rest, creatinine comes into being slowly. But it does not mean you should keep exercise from your life. The advantages of moderate gentle exercise outweigh its disadvantages.

-Meat is also a source of creatinine, so you should restrict the intake of meat. Restriction is not prohibition. Because our bodies need some meat to maintain its normal function. Therefore, daily intake is very important for you to control the disease.

-Some herbal tea, such as nettle leaf tea is proved to have the function of lowering creatinine level, so you can have a try.

Is it possible for you to normalize creatinine 2.3 with FSGS?

Creatinine 2.3 is not so high. As long as you improve your kidney function to more than 50%, you can normalize it. In Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, there are many therapies to help you achieve the goal, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. It can dilate blood vessels and block blood clotting to set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing. It can also inhibit kidney inflammation and stop kidney fibrosis to protect your kidneys from being damaged further. After a period of treatment, your creatinine level goes down.
