Will Drinking Water Help A High Creatinine for IgA Nephropathy PatientsWhen creatinine level increases, patients will look for ways to lower creatinine level. Will drinking water help a high creatinine for IgA Nephropathy patients? Go on reading, you will find the answer.

How does IgA Nephropathy cause high creatinine level?

IgA Nephropathy is caused by immunoglobulin A depositing in the kidneys. In order to cleanse those IgA immune complexes, your body will launch inflammation. Short-term inflammation is beneficial, but long-term inflammation impairs kidneys so as to cause kidney function to decline. Creatinine is a waste product passed out of the body by kidneys. But kidney has immense compensatory ability. Not until you lose more than 50% kidney function does your creatinine level increase.

Drinking water may help a high creatinine for IgA Nephropathy patients.

Drinking water can increase urine output so that more creatinine can be discharged out of the body so as to achieve the goal of lowering creatinine level. Besides, water intake can dilute your blood and the creatinine concentration.


Drinking a lot of water may increase the workload of kidneys so as to speed up kidney damage. Besides, it may worsen edema and raise high blood pressure. Therefore, do not drink excess water. How much water you can drink depends on your medical condition.

How to normalize creatinine level?

Drinking water helps a little for IgA Nephropathy patients with high creatinine level. If you want to normalize creatinine, you should repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. When your kidney function is more than 50%, creatinine level can be normalized. Immunotherapy combines both western medicine and Chinese medicine. It can block the abnormal immune system, cleanse immune complexes from the kidneys and increase the kidneys’ tolerance to immune complexes to eliminate kidney inflammation. It can also improve blood circulation to help kidney repair themselves.
