How to Lower Creatinine 3.6 with Diet for FSGS Patients

How to Lower Creatinine 3.6 with Diet for FSGS PatientsCreatinine is a chemical waste product filtered from the blood through the kidneys. For healthy people, their kidneys can keep the creatinine in the normal range. But for FSGS patients, their kidney function gradually decline with the sclerosis of glomeruli. When their kidney function is less than 50%, creatinine level increases. Creatinine 3.6 is almost three times the normal level (0.5-1.2 mg/dL). How to lower creatinine 3.6 with diet for FSGS patients?

Reduce intake of meat

Creatinine is produced by your muscle metabolism and to a smaller extent by eating meat. If you want to control creatinine level, you had better reduce intake of meat. Creatinine 3.6 means you are stage 3 CKD, in which 0.6-0.8 g/kg high quality protein is recommended.

Drink water or herbal tea

If you do not have edema, drinking water can increase your urine output and then creatinine can be passed out with urine. Some herbal tea is also diuretic, such as dandelion tea and nettle leaf tea.

Ensure carbohydrate intake

Your body needs calory to operate normally. Protein, carbohydrate and fat are the three sources of calory. Because you have to restrict protein intake, you had better ensure carbohydrate intake. Foods such as cereal, rice and sweet potatoes are packed with rich carbohydrate.

Food can help lower creatinine level to certain extent, but it can not normalize the creatinine level from the root. Only when you improve kidney function to more than 50% can your creatinine level get within the normal range. Therefore, besides diet, you should receive treatment aggressively. In kidney disease hospital China, we have many particular therapies, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Foot Bath, Mai Kang Mixture and decoction. They can cleanse waste from the blood, improve blood circulation, inhibit kidney inflammation and stop kidney fibrosis. With systemic treatment, your damaged kidneys can restore part of kidney function and then creatinine level comes down.

With prompt and effective treatment, your state of illness can be controlled and then you can live a normal life. If you have any other question, please contact online doctor.
