Creatinine level is an indicator of kidney function. The normal creatinine level for an adult male is 53-106 umol/L, and adult female is 44-97 umol/L. 283 is a little higher. From the following aspects, you may reduce your creatinine level.
Control your diet
Creatinine is the metabolite of creatine, which is mainly from muscle and the meat you consume. You can not change the muscle proteolysis, but you can reduce the intake of meat. Restricting the intake of sodium, protein and fat is also beneficial. And you can drink some herbal teas, such as dandelion root tea and nettle leaf tea. They are helpful for increasing urine output and reducing creatinine level.
Control underlying causes
Controlling the underlying causes of high creatinine level can also help lower creatinine level. Therefore, you should control your proteinuria, high blood pressure, high sugar level and the corresponding symptoms. There are many ways to control the symptoms. The most commonest is to take some medicine, for example, steroid to reduce proteinuria and ACE inhibitors to lower blood pressure.
