Creatinine is discharged by kidneys as a waste of muscle metabolism. Normally, the creatinine level in blood is stable unless people take large amounts of protein or have kidney function loss. Creatinine 2.93 is higher than the normal range, while it is not life-threatening. Since more creatinine accumulates in the body, other organs or systems can be affected. Therefor, how to reduce creatinine 2.93 is very important.
How serious is creatinine 2.93?
The normal range of creatinine is 0.5-1.1mg/dl for female and 0.6-1.2mg/dl. Creatinine 2.93 seems not so serious as it is just a little higher than the normal level. However, you should know that creatinine level won’t elevate unless more than half of the kidney function has lost. In clinic, creatinine 2.93 indicates patients are at stage 3 kidney disease. Fortunately, stage 3 kidney disease is reversible if timely and effective treatment is taken. If left untreated, stage 3 may progress into stage 4 or stage 5 kidney disease.
How to reduce creatinine 2.93?
Firstly, you should limit your protein intake. The protein metabolic production are waste for the body, and are filtered by kidneys. Therefore, high protein intake will burden the kidneys, and excessive creatinine will accumulate. Yet, it does not mean you cannot take protein at all. Taking high-quality protein 0.6-0.8g or per kilogram of the body weight is allowed.
Secondly, using medicines to reduce creatinine 2.93. Here I refer to Chinese herbs rather than western medicines. Westerns can reduce high level of creatinine by discharging excessive creatinine from other organs. The curative effect of western medicines are temporary. However, Chinese herbs like Radix Astragali, Rheum officinale, Salvia miltiorrhiza and Cordyceps sinensis can not only beneficial for reducing high creatinine but also can improve kidney function by repairing intrinsic renal cells and enhance kidneys’ self-repairing capability. Once the kidneys are repaired and function well, excessive creatinine and other wastes can be eliminated largely.
To sum up, there are many ways to reduce high creatinine level, but you should ask your doctor's advice and do not take medicines blindly. We are also glad to help you solve your problems.
