Creatinine is the by-product of muscle metabolism. Elevated creatinine always indicate kidney damage. Will cucumber fast reduce creatinine?
I can tell you exactly that no certain food or medicine can fast reduce creatinine, because kidney function cannot be recovered in such a short time.
Why does creatinine elevate?
There are many factors that can lead to high creatinine level. Dehydration, diabetes, high blood pressure, gout, heart disease, excessive blood loss, side effects of medicines, etc. If you can exclude these causes, you can say that kidney problem is the culprit of high creatinine.
Our kidneys have a strong compensatory ability. In other words, even though one kidney is damaged, the other one can work more to function well. Creatinine won’t increase until more then half of kidney tissues are damaged. Therefore, to lower creatinine is to repair damaged nephrons and improve kidney function.
What are the effects of cucumber on lowering creatinine?
cucumber is indeed a super vegetable for kidney disease patients. Its heath benefits can include:
● Nutrition-rich water: This can help patients keep hydrated to prevent from dehydration.
● Vitamin C and caffeic acid prevent water retention.
● Diuretic properties: Coupled with its potassium content helps to reduce high blood pressure and heart rates by counteracting effects of sodium.
Because of these benefits, cucumber is always suggested by the doctor or dietitian. Yet, it is only taken to prevent from some symptoms but cannot help repairing kidney tissues. If you depend on it to lower creatinine, you are absolutely wrong.
