How can I reduce serum creatinine level with Ayurvedic treatment?

by Rahul Kumar Health and Medical

Serum creatinine level is also termed as creatinine level in blood which plays a special tool of diagnosis that tells doctors about your kidneys’ health. Creatinine is a chemical waste product that is produced by your body during muscle breakdown. Everyone has creatinine in their blood that gets filtered by their kidneys through urine.

The average creatinine level of a human body is 0.84 to 1.21 mg/dl, but if your lab report shows creatinine levels beyond these numbers then it could be a strong indication of kidney dysfunction.

The level of creatinine can vary from person to person on various aspects, such as-

      Diet

      How much physical activity you do

      Your kidney functions

      Your protein intake

For example, a man with high muscle mass and less body fat is likely to have a higher creatinine level than a person with 20% body fat and less muscle ratio.


Kidney and creatinine

Your fist-sized kidneys purify around 200 liters of blood from toxins, excess fluids, and other unnecessary substances that are produced in blood with time. Having high creatinine levels means that your kidneys have stopped working and you need immediate medication to prevent the progression of the disease. Having high creatinine levels won’t do any harm to your body itself, but it's an indication of a potential threat that most of the time people fail to detect and end up with a permanent loss of kidney functions.


Your kidneys are fragile to various environmental and biological stresses that can cause serious damage to them which can increase the creatinine levels in your blood.


Does having a high creatinine level mean kidney failure?

No, having a high creatinine level doesn’t necessarily mean that there’s something wrong with your kidneys. Other various factors can be held responsible for increasing your creatinine levels, such as-


      Severe dehydration

      Excessive consumption of protein

      High-intensity exercise

      Regular ingestion of oral protein supplements

      Regular ingestion of medicines that can damage your kidneys

      Uncontrolled diabetes

      High blood pressure

      Inflammation caused in glomeruli

      High consumption of salt

      Drug toxicity

      Kidney infection 


How can we detect high creatinine levels in the body?


High creatinine levels are mostly linked with kidney-related problems that take decades to show up with visible signs of kidney damage. Therefore, it’s always recommended to get your urine and blood sample tested to keep in touch with your kidneys’ health so that you can undertake certain medication to prevent the progression of disease in time. When the disease progresses with time, you may experience some common symptoms which include the following-

  1. Nausea
  2. Muscle cramps
  3. Fatigue
  4. High blood pressure
  5. Itchiness
  6. Swollen ankles, feet and hands due to excessive fluid retention
  7. Vomiting
  8. Feeling pressure or pain in the chest


Things to be taken into consideration

Having high creatinine levels can go from normal to severe in no time. Hence, it’s recommended to make temporary modifications in your lifestyle and dietary habits to bring your health back on track.


Avoid creatine supplements

Creatinine is a byproduct of creatine that is produced by amino acids in the body. Consuming creatine supplements that are at the hype among athletes and bodybuilders to enhance muscle growth and performance. Consuming high creatine supplements can elevate the creatinine levels of your body. Those who want to lower their creatinine level should avoid creatine or isolate protein supplements.


Limit intense workout session

Exercise is usually a good thing to do, but you should be better off-track for a while when you're dealing with a high creatinine problem. You should limit intense workout sessions, and replace them with a normal walking schedule.

Typically, people with compromised kidney functions should opt for less strenuous exercises to prevent further damage to their kidneys. They can opt for normal exercises, such as-


      Walking

      Yoga

      Hiking

      Aerobics

      Indoor cycling 


Replace protein with fibre

Dietary changes are proven effective in lowering creatinine levels. Avoid dense proteins, red meat from fibre-rich foods can lower the amount of creatinine in the blood. Avoid protein-rich foods, such as-


      Chicken

      Eggs

      Dairy products 


Instead try to eat more fibre-rich foods, such as-


      Fruits

      Legumes

      Whole grains

      vegetables 


Is there any permanent cure for this problem?


Yes, several medicines are available that slow down the severity of the complications caused due to high creatinine levels. Still, such medicines are lab-prepared with the formulations of various harmful chemicals that can affect your health. Also, the effect of such medicines fuels out very soon, without curing the actual cause of the problem. For the genuine revival of kidney function, try Ayurvedic treatment for high creatinine.
