Creatinine 6.4 is so high that indicates patients’ Hypertensive Nephropathy has aggravated into stage 4 or even end stage. To help manage hypertensive kidney disease and lower creatinine 6.4, patients should follow a correct diet plan.
The principle of patients’ diet plan is to keep protein, sodium, potassium, phosphorus, vitamins, and many other nutrients balance in the body. In view of this, we would like to give out the following suggestions.
Follow a low-protein diet
Extra intake of protein will increase the workload on kidneys and worsen kidney damage. On the contrary, it will cause malnutrition, fatigue, and some other problems easily. In view of this, patients should take correct amount of protein according to their illness condition. And high-quality protein is suggested, such as egg white, milk, fish, lean meat, etc.
Limit meat intake
It reveals that meat contains creatine, which is the source of creatinine. To lower high creatinine level, patients should control their meat intake.
Arrange a low-sodium diet
A low-sodium diet is conductive to lower blood pressure and swelling. Generally, the daily intake of sodium should be limited within 3g. You should avoid high-sodium foods such as canned food, snack food, condiments etc.
Take in correct amount of potassium and phosphorus
Potassium can be used to balance sodium and adjust blood pressure. If hypertensive nephropathy patients’ kidney function is normal, high-potassium foods are suggested. However, creatinine 6.4 means patients’ kidneys have been damaged severely. Then, patients should pay attention to their potassium and phosphorus intake, because diseased kidneys are unable to eliminate them efficiently.
