Herbs to Bring Down Creatinine Level with IgA Nephropathy

Herbs to Bring Down Creatinine Level with IgA NephropathySeveral herbs can be used to help IgA Nephropathy patients bring down their elevated creatinine level. Here, we will give an introduction about these herbs, but before that, we’d like to firstly explain why creatinine level becomes higher with the diagnosis of IgA Nephropathy.

How does IgA Nephropathy cause elevation of creatinine level in blood?

Actually, not only IgA Nephropathy, but also other kinds of kidney problem like Nephrotic Syndrome and FSGS (Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis) can cause elevation of creatinine level in blood, because all of these illnesses can damage kidney tissues and impair kidney function. Creatinine is a metabolite of meat and excreted out of the body through kidney in normal condition. Therefore, when kidney function is impaired severely, creatinine level in blood increases. Kidney is the organ that is in charge of filtering blood and excreting wastes like some toxic substances. High creatinine level not only indicates serious impairment of kidney function, but also hint lots of toxins have build up in the blood. This is the reason why dialysis is needed when creatinine level is increased to a certain level.

Herbs to bring down creatinine level with IgA Nephropathy

Herbs that can be used to bring down creatinine level include:

1. Dandelion root: Dandelion root has diuretic effects for IgA Nephropathy patients. Creatinine is excreted out of the body with urine, so by increasing urine output, some creatinine in the body can be excreted out as well. In this way, high creatinine level can be brought down to some extent.

2. Siberian ginseng: For IgA Nephropathy patients, Siberian ginseng can be used together with cinnamon to lower creatinine level. Besides, Siberian Ginseng shows effects in stimulating the circulation of the kidney, which can help to improve kidney function and viewed from this aspect, it is also helpful for bringing down high creatinine level.

3. Salvia: Salvia is especially helpful for patients who are on dialysis for kidney failure, because it can increase the CCR(Creatinine Clearance Rate).

All the above herbs are helpful for IgA Nephropathy patients, but the usage of them should be under doctor’s observation or direction. Besides, in cases of IgA Nephropathy, creatinine level increases due to impairment of kidney function, so improving kidney function is the best way to bring down creatinine level in blood. Additional, when kidney function is improved, not only creatinine, other wastes can be excreted as well.
