What is creatinine?
Creatinine is a chemical waste molecule that is generated from muscle metabolism.
Creatinine is produced from creatine, a molecule of major importance for energy production in muscles.Approximately 2% of the body's creatine is converted to creatinine every day.
Creatinine is transported through the bloodstream to the kidneys. The kidneys filter out most of the creatinine and dispose of it in the urine.Because the muscle mass in the body is relatively constant from day to day, the creatinine production normally remains essentially unchanged on a daily basis.
The normal range of creatinine in blood is:
- 0.6 to 1.2 mg/dL (or 53 to 106 mcmol/L) for males, and
- 0.5 to 1.1 mg/dL (or 44 to 97 mcmol/L) for females.
Men usually have higher levels than women because creatinine increases with muscle mass.Factors that contribute to high creatinine levels include dehydration or inadequate water intake; medications like ACE inhibitors, NSAIDs, chemotherapy drugs and others; strenuous exercise; chronic diseases like kidney disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and thyroid disorders; kidney problems; and excessive blood loss.
Muscle building, taking the dietary supplement creatine and eating large amounts of meat can also elevate creatinine levels.
Some common symptoms of high creatinine are digestive problems like nausea, vomiting and poor appetite; fatigue; urinary changes like frequent night urination, decreased urine output and dark colored urine,edema, itchy skin and shortness of breath. High creatinine levels may indicate kidney problems and kidney damage.
What is the remedy for lowering creatinine levels?
KB-10 or CREAT CARE is 100% natural herbal supplement and works as a natural diuretic to flush out toxins and lower creatinine levels. It also helps improve kidney function and relieve edema or swelling due to water retention. It helps increase kidney output and promotes renal filtration ability. It also helps regulate blood sugar levels, thus preventing further renal damage.
It is also an effective remedy to get rid of excess creatinine because it revitalizes the kidneys and promotes renal circulation.It acts as a natural diuretic and anti-inflammatory agent. It helps increase urine output, thus aiding in removing excess creatinine. It also reduces edema and lowers high blood pressure. It promotes intestinal detoxification and increases urine output. It lowers creatinine levels by increasing the excretion of metabolic waste products including creatinine.It also improves kidney function. It works as a natural diuretic and kidney cleanser. It also helps reduce blood urea nitrogen (BUN) levels and treat nephrocalcinosis.
