How to Reduce Creatinine 5.3 and Swelling in Both Feet

Details: Good morning. My creatinine level is 5.3 mg/dl, and I have swelling in both feet. How to manage my problems?

Expert Answer

When kidneys are unable to filter blood normally, extra waste products and toxins will build up in the body, resulting in high creatinine level and fluid retention in the body. High creatinine 5.3 usually indicates stage 4 or even end stage kidney disease. Swelling in both feet is due to fluid retention or protein leakage.

According to the causes, we can determine the effective treatments to manage them.

On one hand, patients should manage their fluid intake and develop a low-sodium and low-protein diet plan, so as to manage swelling in feet, and reducing the meat intake and the activity level can help lower high creatinine 5.3.

On the other hand, patients should take some medications or medical therapies to manage these problems. Diuretic can stimulate the kidneys to produce more urine, taking away more extra fluid, and steroids, ACEI, ARBs, and some other medications can prevent protein leakage, alleviating swelling. Ketosteril and some other medicines can help lower high creatinine level.

The diet plan and treatment option should depend on patients' illness condition. To gain an individual treatment and diet plan, you can consult the online doctor.
