Is Cranberry Juice Useful for Bringing Creatinine Level Back to Normal for FSGS Patients

Is Cranberry Juice Useful for Bringing Creatinine Level Back to Normal for FSGS PatientsA FSGS patient recently seeks help from our website. She says that her creatinine increases to 1.3 nowadays and she wants to know whether cranberry juice is useful for bringing creatinine level back to normal.

Cranberry is a kind of fruit packed with rich nutrition, such as antioxidants, vitamins, salicylic acid and various minerals, which are beneficial for kidney patients.

-Cranberries can prevent kidney stones and other kidney and bladder problems due to their citric acid and other nutrients.

-Cranberries help reduce the bad cholesterol levels that can clog the arterial walls and prevent plaque from forming on the arterial walls so as to reduce the chance of heart disease.

-The antioxidants in cranberries can flush out the harmful toxins which suppress the immune system. When your immune system improves, you can ward off about any sickness or disease.

-If you have urinary tract infection, cranberry juice is helpful. Because proanthocyanidins in cranberries can help prevent bacteria from sticking to the walls of the uterus and bladder.

Cranberries also have other health benefits, such as improve memory, avoid dental problems, anti-aging, etc.

From the above, we can see that drinking cranberry juice can help FSGS patients alleviate some symptoms, but it can not bring down creatinine level directly. If you want to lower creatinine level, you should restrict the intake of meat, because it is a good source of creatine. You should also avoid strenuous activity to reduce muscle contraction.

Diet and exercise are only adjunctive treatment for you to decrease creatinine level. To repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function is the basic way to normalize creatinine level. Creatinine 1.3 is not very high. It is totally possible for you to reverse the kidney disease and live a normal life.

Hope the above information is helpful for you. If you have any other questions on kidney disease or want to get more personalized and professional treatment suggestions, please leave a message below.
