Has your doctor told you that your creatinine levels are too high? Don’t despair; they are easier to lower than you might have been told.


In case you don’t know, creatinine is a chemical waste product that happens through the natural metabolism of the muscles. The kidneys normally expel this compound. However, when creatinine levels remain high for some time, this is often an indicator of weak kidney function. The normal range for males is 0.6 to 1.2 MG/DL. For women, the normal range is 0.5 to 1.1 MG/DL. Men usually have slightly higher levels because they generally have more muscle mass.

There are many factors that can contribute to high creatinine levels, including dehydration, certain medications, kidney disease, diabetes, thyroid problems, excessive strenuous exercise, and high blood pressure.

Most people experience high creatinine levels due to body building, eating large quantities of meat, and taking creatine supplements.

How do you know if you have high creatinine levels? You might have high levels if you experience problems such as poor appetite, itchy skin, shortness of breath, dark colored urine, nausea, vomiting, decreased urine output and fatigue.

Since high creatinine levels can mean kidney problems, you should see your doctor for a proper diagnosis. However, if you have seen your doctor and you are looking for ways to lower your creatinine levels, we have 12 of the easiest ways that you can do exactly that!
