How to Lower Creatinine in Children with Kidney Failure

Kidney failure refers poor renal function, in which the kidneys fail to work normally to filter blood and remove wastes from body. When the kidneys are damaged, high levels of creatinine will build up in body, thus resulting in high creatinine. How to lower creatinine in children with kidney failure is a concern for parents with kids with kidney problem.

There is a variety of causes of kidney failure in children including birth defects,blocked urine flow and reflux,hereditary diseases,glomerular diseases, and systemic diseases. In the pediatric population-age 19 and under-the annual rate is only 1 or 2 new cases in every 100,000 children. In other words, adults are about 20 times more likely to develop kidney failure than children. The risk increases steadily with age.

How to lower creatinine in children with kidney failure? Here are some natural ways to be introduced.

A low-protein diet
Follow a low-protein diet. Protein is an essential nutrient to your health, but if you have kidney complications or need to reduce your creatine intake, limit poultry, red meat, fish and eggs. Consult your physician for adequate protein servings per week based on your health needs.

Avoid strenuous exercise
Creatinine is from the byproduct of creatine in muscle. Exercise can acclerate the metabolism of muscle into creatinine, thus raising creatinine level further.

Nettle leaf tea
Drink 1 to 2 cups a day. Nettle leaf tea is a simple yet powerful kidney tonic that can improve kidney function and reduce serum creatinine levels.

Chitosan
Chitosan maybe be better known for weight management, but believe it or not it has another trick up its sleeve. Chitosan supplementation in clinical studies reduced urea, creatinine and cholesterol levels in the blood, and increased haemoglobin production in patients with chronic kidney disease. I recommend a dosage of 1000-4000mg a day.


The above are some natural ways to lower creatinine in children with kidney failure. However, the underlying treament goal is to enhance renal function and make the kidneys work better. Email to kidney120@hotmail.com to get more treatment information.
