When there is Chronic Kidney Disease, and the kidneys are not able to filter waste products such as creatinine and blood urea nitrogen (BUN) efficiently, there will likely be rises in BUN and creatinine levels. In the section below, we will talk about natural ways to lower these high levels.
Normal BUN levels are about 10-20 mg/dL for an adult and 5-18 mg/dL for a child. Normal creatinine levels are between 0.5-1.2. With elevated levels, you can consider natural remedies to control them.
How to naturally reduce high BUN and creatinine levels in CKD?
- Drinking correct amount of water. For people whose kidneys can still produce urine normally, they can drink enough water to facilitate the excretion of BUN and creatinine. However, if their kidneys are severely damaged, they need to limit the fluid intake.
- Avoiding a high protein diet that include all types of meat. Eat low quantity but high quality protein.
- Consuming herbs in right amounts. They include dandelion, astragalus, ginseng, cinnamon, etc. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for the detailed herb list.
- Lastly, adopting natural herbal remedy known as Micro-Chinese Medicine to fundamentally lower high BUN and creatinine levels by repair the kidney damage and recover the renal function.
These measures should be followed after discussing with a kidney doctor. Since high BUN and creatinine levels are important determinants of kidney damage, it is necessary to control the levels and prevent further bigger kidney problems. Any questions, please leave a message in the below.
