How To Avoid Elevated Creatinine Level In FSGS

How To Avoid Elevated Creatinine Level In FSGSCreatinine is a waste product that forms when creatinine is broken down. Our kidneys are responsible for eliminating the wastes out of the body. So creatinine level is an important indicator of how well the kidney functions. If creatinine level increases gradually in FSGS, this means your kidney function decreases day by day. Here are some steps that can help avoid elevated creatinine level in FSGS effectively, hope can help you greatly.

1. Reduce the protein intake

Creatinine is a substance that is found in high-protein animal products such as red meat and poultry. In view of this, one way to stop elevated creatinine level is to reduce the intake of foods rich in protein. Because the amount of protein has been limited, to meet the body’s normal circulation, patients are suggested to pay more attention to the quality of protein. The foods like egg white, milk, fresh fish, lean meat, etc are the good source of high quality protein to be consumed.

2. Lower high blood pressure

High blood pressure, also called hypertension, is a condition that can contribute to the development of FSGS and eventual end stage kidney disease. It leads to kidney damage by damaging the blood vessels that supply the kidneys with fresh blood. This can trigger high creatinine levels in the blood. You can lower it by eating low-sodium diet and getting enough exercises. When needed, you also are suggested to take some hypotensive drugs but should under the guidance of your doctors.

3. Increase the fluid intake

While high creatinine level can indicate a serious medical condition, dehydration can also lead to elevated creatinine level in FSGS. It is proved to be the best that women consume 2.2 liters of fluid and men consume 3 liters of fluid per day.
