High creatinine level and renal parenchymal disease both commonly appear in renal patients’ test report. However, not all people clearly know what they are or the causes and treatments of high creatinine level for renal parenchymal disease. Hence, today, our topic is high creatinine level and renal parenchymal disease.
What is renal parenchymal disease definition?
Renal parenchymal disease is one group of kidney disorders in renal parenchyma rather than one single kidney disease. Renal parenchyma consists of about one million of kidney filters, called glomeruli, and renal tubules. Normally, healthy glomeruli and renal tubules can help filter out metabolic wastes and maintain the stable inner body system. When they are attacked severely, kidneys are able to play their filtration and regulation function no longer. Then, the damage to renal parenchyma is called as renal parenchymal disease.
How does renal parenchymal disease cause high creatinine level?
As introduced by the above content, renal parenchymal diseases make kidneys fail to filter out waste products and toxins, while creatinine is just one product of muscle metabolism. This is the reason that creatinine level in the blood rises along with the onset of renal parenchymal disease.
How to reduce high creatinine level for renal parenchymal disease?
Since renal parenchymal disease is one group of kidney diseases, to manage it correctly we should firstly find out the underlying cause. Most often, high blood pressure, diabetes, Polycystic Kidney Disease, kidney stone, autoimmune kidney diseases such as IgA Nephropathy and FSGS, congenital kidney defection, etc, all can provoke this type of kidney disease. Try to figure out which is in accord with your medical case and manage them timely.
Secondly, we need to increase creatinine excretion. Ketosteril and diuretics have an effect of lowering creatinine level. In fact, some herbal medicines or tea also have this benefit, such as dandelion root, nettle leaf, salvia, astragalus membranaceus, and so on. Compared with western medicines, herbal medicines usually have side effects, so you can try them with online doctor’s guidance.
Finally, a healthy diet with low protein, low salt, enough vitamin and some other requirements are also needed to take as an auxiliary treatment of medicines. To make sure what foods you can eat or not eat, you can leave a message below, so we can give you answer for the first time.
