Do Nettle Tea and Astragalus Herb Reduce High Creatinine Level

Posted: by Dr.Zhao      Time: 2015-01-01 03:51

Topics: High Creatinine Level High Creatinine Level Treatment

Details: My creatinine level is 1100 and blood urea is 60. My doctor told me that high blood pressure causes my kidney problem. Can nettle tea and astragalus herb reduce high creatinine level?

Expert Answer

As you describe, your creatinine and urea levels have been dangerous that indicates kidneys have been damaged severely. With severe kidney damage and decline of urine output, more and more waste products and toxins build up in the body, resulting in high creatinine and urea levels.

Both nettle leaf and astragalus herb have the diuretic property that can stimulate the kidneys to eliminate extra fluid from the body and increase urine output. Therefore, these herbs can help reduce high blood pressure, high creatinine level and high urea level, but patients should have enough urine output.

However, since creatinine and urea levels have been so high, patients' urine output may have declined largely. In this case, patients can't consume foods or drinks that have diuretic property effectively.

What's more, only depending on nettle tea and astragalus herb is far from enough to reduce creatinine 1100 and urea. That is to say, patients should take some systemic treatments to improve kidney function level or help impaired kidneys to cleanse the blood. If you want to get better therapeutic effects, you can ask help from the doctor online.
