Nephrotic Syndrome: Is It Safe to Take Nettle Leaf Tablets to Lower Creatinine

Question: I have Nephrotic Syndrome. Now my kidney doctor just has me on lisinopril for my blood pressure. He said there is nothing else to do but cut back on red meat, and no salt. Is it safe to take nettle leaf tablets to lower my creatinine?

Nephrotic Syndrome: Is It Safe to Take Nettle Leaf Tablets to Lower CreatinineAnswer: From the point of view of western medicine, what your doctor does is right. So far, there is not an effective medicine to help lower creatinine level in western medicine. As long as you do not have any symptoms, he does not prescribe you any medications. And what you should do is to wait. Not until your creatinine level is over 6 is dialysis suggested to start. Because a portion of creatinine is from meat we consume, thereby you should cut back on red meat. As to the salt, if you have high blood pressure and swelling, a low salt diet is recommended rather than avoid totally, because our body needs sodium to maintain the normal function.

Nettle leaf tablets are helpful for lowering creatinine level.

Nettle leaf contain histamines and flavonoids, which can help increase blood flow into your kidneys, thus increasing urine filtration. With urine, more creatinine can be passed out of body so as to lower your creatinine level.

However, to stabilize creatinine level, you should repair kidney damage and improve kidney function.

Creatinine is excreted by kidneys. If you can not regain your kidney function, creatinine level will increase again. Here we recommend you a systemic Chinese medicine treatment. It is Toxin-Removing Treatment, and has been practiced in Beijing Tongshantang Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine for over 30 years. After about half month’s treatment, your high creatinine level will go down at least 10%. After about one month’s treatment, your Nephrotic Syndrome will be under control. With treatment going on, swelling and proteinuria will disappear, and creatinine level will be kept into a range.

You can take moderate nettle leaf tablets to help you lower creatinine level, but the fundamental way is to recover your own kidney function. For more information on Nephrotic Syndrome treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
