Kidney Failure is end stage of chronic kidney disease, and creatinine 9.8 is much higher than the normal. Patients must try to use some therapies to lower their high creatinine level. In addition to medical therapy, a right diet plan can help lower high creatinine 9.8 to some extent.
When kidneys are damaged severely, patients should pay attention to several substances in their diet plan. They are protein, sodium, potassium, phosphorus, fat, and so on.
Protein is one essential nutrition for the body, but protein metabolic waste products are eliminated via kidneys. Thereby, when kidneys are damaged, patients should control their protein intake, so as to protect the remaining kidney cells. Then, kidneys can excrete creatinine relatively normally.
When kidneys fail to work normally, they will lose their ability to maintain fluid and sodium balance. In this case, extra sodium intake will trigger or worsen fluid retention and increase creatinine level to some extent. Therefore, patients should learn to develop a low-sodium diet plan.
Potassium is one mineral that can help regulate blood pressure and maintain heart health. In kidney failure, extra potassium will accumulate in the body, inducing a series of problems. To prevent patients’ kidney condition from worsening, patients should avoid potassium-containing foods.
Just like potassium, phosphorus is one mineral that patients with creatinine 9.8 should pay attention to their intake. Generally, animal giblets, sea foods, grain, dairy products, etc, contain rich phosphorus, so patients should limit their intake of these foods.
Extra fat intake will worsen patients’ blood circulation, so kidney condition may be worsened further. Thereby, it is necessary for kidney failure patients to follow a low-fat diet plan.
