Creatinine 8 is so high and indicates patients are at End Stage Renal Disease. Precautions for creatinine 8 include several aspects such as diet, exercise and treatment. Here is a general introduction about the precaution for creatinine 8. Any questions, please email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message below.
Precautions on diet
-Add more protein. Patients with creatinine 8 may have weight loss due to nausea, vomiting or long term of protein-restricted diet. If so, they are suggested to add more high-quality protein foods to get enough calories.
-Lower potassium and phosphorous intake. Some vegetables high in potassium like mushroom, spinach, artichoke, potato and tomato, should be avoided. Some dairy products such as cheese, yoghourt and nuts are rich in phosphorous. Take them with limitation.
Precautions on exercise
Creatinine is the waste product of muscle metabolism. In order to reduce the production of creatinine, patient should avoid strenuous activities. Those patients who have swelling or heavy proteinuria need enough rest.
Precautions on treatment
This is the key to reducing creatinine 8. When Kidney Failure occurs, patients are usually recommended to take dialysis, or they may die within weeks. Health kidneys filter blood wastes, remove excess fluid, regular blood pressure, maintain electrolyte balance and produce vitamin D, etc. Dialysis can only help kidneys to remove wastes in the blood, but cannot work the same as healthy kidneys. Patients on dialysis for years will have more damaged kidney function.
To reduce creatinine 8 from the root cause, I recommend Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). They can purify the blood and increase blood circulation. Therefore, kidneys can get enough blood volume and oxygen to repair the damaged renal tissues. As long as remaining kidney function can be protected and enhanced, high creatinine levels can be lowered naturally and effectively.
