Details: My husband have high creatinine level as 2.3 and doctor has told him to be under observation for more one month. Can you suggest what to do?

Expert Answer


Hi, I am so sorry to hear he is not suggested anything when his creatinine level is as high as 2.3. Normally, serum creatinine level fluctuates in range of 0.5-1.3mg/dL. When too much creatinine is produced at one time, kidneys work hardly to remove them. High creatinine level 2.3 means kidney function has been severely impaired. Now what we need to do include:

1. Control blood pressure in normal range

High serum creatinine level 2.3 is due to impaired kidney function. Persistent high blood pressure is harmful for kidney and it may cause further elevation of serum creatinine level. Therefore, if he has high blood pressure, hypotensive drugs are recommended to help him control blood pressure in normal range.

2. Eat less salt

High-salt diet not only elevates his blood pressure, but also add extra burden on kidney, which may accelerate illness progression. Therefore, please ask him to eat less salt and try to avoid salted foods and processed foods.

3. Fluid limitation

Does he have swelling? If yes, please tell him to drink less water.

4. Take treatment to strengthen his kidney

In China, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is used to help damaged kidney. This herbal treatment is able to restore some kidney function, which helps to alleviate various symptoms and reduce creatinine level. You can ask him to talk his doctor and ask if there is an effective treatment in your country to help him reverse illness.

5. Avoid cold and infection

Cold and infection are leading to risk factors which can case acute chronic kidney failure. Please help him avoid these two conditions.

6. No smoking and drinking of alcohol

For your husband, his high creatinine level 2.3 means kidneys have been severely damaged. If he takes effective treatment, not only further kidney damages can be avoided, his illness also can be reversed to a better condition. However, if he takes no treatment or takes wrong treatment, his illness will be develop to kidney failure finally.
