1. Keep a vegetarian diet
Since the creatinine level is higher than the normal level, we recommend her to keep a vegetarian diet, which can help reduce the production of creatinine in blood. So patients need to avoid the meat intake in their daily diet.
2. Limit the calcium intake
Her calcium level is so high in blood, so she need to limit the high calcium foods in their daily life. Since high calcium level will cause bone problems and thyroid problems, which will make patient sicker.
3. Supply iron intake
For this patient, her haemoglobin level is low, which will cause renal anemia, so she need to supply enough iron intake, which can help increase the haemoglobin level. Besides, low haemoglobin level can also cause weakness and fatigue for people.
Depending on the illness condition of this patient, we can give her these diet lists, besides, she should also follow the general diet principles, such as low-protein, low-salt, low fluid diet and so on. All these will be helpful to protect the residual kidney function and help lower high creatinine level.
In addition, only keeping a kidney-friendly diet is not improve her illness, she should also have treatments to remedy her kidney damage and improve the kidney function. When the kidneys are improved, the creatinine level can be lowered effectively.
