Kidneys are the most potential organ involved in Lupus. Lupus Nephritis occurs, when Lupus attacks glomeruli, or kidney filters. When glomeruli are damaged, creatinine and uric acid, two small molecular substances, build up in the blood easily. Then, how to reduce high creatinine and uric acid becomes Lupus Nephritis patients’ big concern.
Generally speaking, to lower creatinine and uric acid, doctors will prescribe some medications such as ketosteril and diuretic. In fact, some foods and home remedies can also help deal with these abnormal blood test items.
1. Food therapy
Some foods also have diuretic property that can stimulate kidneys to produce more urine output, so as to eliminate more creatinine and uric acid. For most patients with Lupus Nephritis, they can use bitter gourd, lemon, cabbage, cucumber and many other vegetables or fruits to reduce high creatinine and uric acid level. (To a food list in detail, you can leave a message to firstname.lastname@example.org. We are glad to share.)
2. Correct drinks
Some herbal tea has the effect of lowering creatinine and uric acid level. Through increasing glomerular filtration rate, these herbs do help, including, dandelion root, nettle leaf, salvia, corn silk, etc. You can choose one suitable herbal drink.
3. Enema therapy
This therapy can increase the excretion of intestinal tract, so a part of creatinine and uric acid can be discharged out of the body via intestinal tract. Therefore, it can reduce the burden on kidneys and protect kidneys from further damage.
4. Medicated Bath
Medicated bath is one treatment that can help treat Lupus Nephritis, through regulating patients’ immune system, improving their blood circulation and prompting sweating. All of these effects are more than only reducing high creatinine and uric acid level.
Of course, not all patients should take all of the above remedies. If you are interested about these remedies, you can determine which remedy is useful for you, with doctor’s guidance.
