High Creatinine Levels and DiureticsHigh creatinine level always appear in kidney disease patients, while diuretics are often used to lower high creatinine level. However, long-term use of diuretics will cause some side effects. Today, we are here to introduce more about the link between high creatinine levels and diuretics.

Effects of diuretics for kidney disease patients

For kidney disease patients, they are more likely to suffer from swelling, high blood pressure, high blood pressure, etc, as their kidneys fail to filter out extra fluid and regulate blood pressure. Diuretics are common medications taken by kidney disease patients, because diuretics work through stimulating the kidneys to produce more urine and take away more waste products and toxins.

From this working mechanism of diuretics, we can know this type of medications have the following benefits.

- Lower high blood pressure, if it is cased by increase of blood volume

- Ease kidney patients’ swelling, because it is able to discharge more fluid out

- Reduce high creatinine level temporarily with the increase of urine output

Even though diuretics can play the above functions for kidney disease patients, they in turn also cause some side effects for kidney patients who have high creatinine level.
