Diabetes is one metabolic disorder that can lead to many other medical problems if uncontrolled effectively. High creatinine and high BUN levels are remarkable indicators for kidney damage. Today, nephrologists from Kidney Service China are here to teach diabetics how to lower their high creatinine and BUN levels.
Creatinine and BUN
Creatinine is one waste product generated from muscular metabolism. BUN refers to blood urea nitrogen that is taken to measure urea level in the blood. Urea is the terminal product of protein decomposition. Both of them are eliminated by kidneys.
Why do diabetics have high creatinine and high BUN levels?
If not controlled effectively, diabetics’ blood sugar will be always higher than the normal. Excessive sugar in blood can damage blood vessels as well as capillaries inside kidneys, while kidney filters consist of numerous capillaries. Therefore, when kidneys are involved in diabetes, kidney filters, glomeruli, don’t filter blood normally. Then, more and more creatinine and urea build up in the blood, resulting in high creatinine and BUN levels.
How to reduce creatinine and BUN levels for diabetics?
Firstly, patients should restrict the source of creatinine and urea. That is to say, diabetics should develop a low-protein diet and avoid foods containing rich creatine. This can reduce the production of creatinine and urea in the body.
Secondly, diabetics should manage their blood sugar as doctors guide. To lower blood sugar can help protect the remaining kidney cells from further damage. In clinic, many medicines can help reduce high blood sugar, so just find out which one is useful for you.
Finally, patients had better take some methods to cleanse their blood. Several oral western medicines, oral Chinese medicines, Medicated Bath, Circle Therapy, Enema Therapy, Dialysis and Blood Purification, are suitable for different patients to lower high creatinine and BUN levels.
The above are some methods that can help diabetics deal with their creatinine and BUN problems, but different patients need to take different treatments. To get personal advices, you can contact nephrologists here through emailing to email@example.com.
