Vegetables That Can Help Lower Creatinine

Vegetables That Can Help Lower CreatinineWhat kinds of vegetables can help lower creatinine? When kidneys are not functioning well, levels of creatinine in the body is increased causing problems. A healthy diet can help lower creatinine levels to some extent, here we will talk about vegetables that help lower creatinine from controlling protein, potassium, phosphorus.

Protein

Most renal diets require people with high creatinine to monitor and limit the protein intake, that is because when protein is broken down, like any other food, it produces certain waste products, which can increase kidneys’ burden. Most vegetables does not contain high levels of protein. You will probably be allowed certain amounts of incomplete proteins from plant sources like beans and lentils.

Potassium

When your kidneys are not working well, your potassium levels can become too high. Potassium is found in many foods, and you must carefully monitor the potassium intake on a renal diet. You may be encouraged to choose lower potassium foods including carrots, lettuce, cucumber, celery, pumpkin, tomato, eggplant, white gourd and so on.

Phosphorus

When you have high creatinine and kidney damage, your body has trouble maintaining the balance between calcium and phosphorus. You often end up with too little calcium and too much phosphorus. So low-phosphorus vegetables like sweet potato, potato, white radish, wax gourd, towel gourd and so on are recommended. Foods that are high in phosphorus include cola, nuts, cheese, liver, sardines, peanut butter and beer and so on should be avoided.

What is more, eat foods that are good for the kidneys like lettuce, cabbage, onions, carrots, cranberries, sprouts, omega 3-rich foods, high fiber foods etc.

Kidney disease experts do believe that though vegetables that can help lower creatinine and healthy living habit are very important, the best way to lower creatinine is to make the kidneys go back to the “operating post” by repairing kidney damage and enhancing kidney function. If you find that your high creatinine can not be lowered through your current treatment, then we will provide you other treatment options after knowing about your condition.
