Carrot juice contains many nutrients and minerals that are necessary for our body's daily functions. However, can people with high creatinine level drink carrot juice? The diet is so “picky” that there are some restrictions. Let’s see if carrot juice is on the list.
·Foods with much sodium: The sodium intake should be lowered or even forbidden according to the conditions of high blood pressure and edema. Salted fish, pickles and bacons are not recommended.
·Foods with high level of potassium: Banana, orange, apple as well as vegetables including carrots and lettuce are of high level of potassium.
·Foods with high level of phosphorus: Sesame, peanuts, honey, and dried fruits etc. contain a high level of phosphorus. Also try not to drink coca cola or beer.
·High protein foods
You can see carrot has high level of potassium, therefore if the patient has hyperkalemia , carrot intake should be controlled within a safe amount. If the patients have low potassium after using diuretics, they can take more carrot juice. About the specific amount, you can ask for your doctor’s advice.
Except that, carrot juice also has lots of benefits for reducing high creatinine level. Fresh fruit and vegetable juice is the "cleaner" of the body. It makes blood alkaline so as to dissolve the deposited toxins in cells. The benefits of carrot juice for decreasing high creatinine level are as following:
·Relief edema: Carrot can promote blood circulation so as to help discharge excess water from the body.
·Lower high blood pressure: Carrots are high in potassium, which is good for keeping electrolyte balance, thus helping to maintain abnormal blood pressure.
·Carrot contains materials that can help lower blood sugar levels.
·Improve immune functions. Various vitamins can improve body’s immunity and disease-resistance ability. Through providing necessary ingredients for glomerular filtration membrane impairing, extra creatinine can be filtered fluently.
To sum up, carrot juice does more good than harm to reducing high creatinine level. However, how much carrot juice patients should take is based on their own illness condition.
