Can Ketosteril Really Reduce High Creatinine Levels

Ketosteril, reduce high creatinineCan ketosteril really help reduce high creatinine levels? Ketosteril is a kind of medicine with which most kidney disease patients are familiar. It is a common medicine for the patients with kidney disease, especially those whose glomerular filtration rate is below 25 ml/min. The doctors prescribe ketosteril to reduce high creatinine levels and BUN levels.

In normal cases, we get the necessary amino acids from foods containing high protein to meet our body’s need. However, kidney disease patients are usually suggested to keep a low protein diet to reduce the production of urea nitrogen. The crag-fast circumstance is easy to cause insufficient supplement of protein for their body thus leading to malnutrition. When kidney function declines, it is very likely to cause protein metabolic disorder which can aggravate the illness condition. However, ketosteril has certain effect in correcting the metabolic disorder.

Actually, ketosteril does not contain amino acid, but it can produce amino acid through combining with the nitrogen in the unnecessary amino acid. In this way, ketosteril not only can provide amino acid for body, also reduce the production of urea and avoid increasing kidneys’ burden. So ketosteril can really reduce high creatinine levels and delay the progression of kidney disease to some extent by regulating protein metabolism.

However, it seems that only ketosteril can not prevent the occurrence of Chronic Renal Failure. Kidney disease experts say patients should know the root cause of high creatinine and BUN levels. Kidney damage makes kidneys lose the normal function of filtering out the metabolic products and excessive fluid. So the key to reduce high creatinine levels is to repair kidney damage and improve kidney function, which can help patients avoid dialysis and kidney transplant effectively. However, ketosteril does not have the function of repairing kidney damage.
