Too much creatinine can be dangerous and might lead to Kidney Failure and other health problems, so lowering creatinine is something urgent.

Avoid eating foods rich in creatinine

Taper the amount of creatine supplements you take until you are taking none. This should return your creatinine levels to normal. Creatinine is eliminated through the urine, so plan to drink as much water as possible.


Ask your doctor about dialysis if your blood creatinine levels are extremely high, and your kidneys are not able to properly excrete creatinine. Dialysis is not the typical treatment, but might be necessary in some cases to lower creatinine levels and filter out waste products. In general, patients will not produce urine when they have been on dialysis for more than six months, which means the kidney function has been totally lost.
