Ayurveda Can Cure Creatinine Problem Naturally!
Ever wondered what functions does your fist-sized organ performs inside the body? When it comes to kidneys most people usually consider that kidneys are only responsible for removing excess waste and water from the body. However, apart from removing excess water, kidneys are also responsible for filtering out blood from all kinds of toxins and waste products that are harmful to the body. However, despite being of such importance, millions of people worldwide are suffering from various kidney diseases. Those who ignore the symptoms and do not care to take proper treatment, their minor kidney disease could even become life-threatening. Among these diseases, the one we are going to discuss in this article is the Creatinine problem. Many people from different countries suffer from this problem. Many health experts often give up on their patients once the problem becomes severe. But, using Ayurvedic treatment for creatinine can give patients relief from this problem for the rest of their lives. Let us understand how! The Rationale Behind Creatinine When we consume food, our body breaks it down and converts the nutrients and protein of food into energy. This energy is thus used by the organs to perform their daily functions throughout the day. Similarly, when we consume heavy food items like Red Meat, Fish, etc., our body produces a compound knows as Creatine. It is responsible for making our metabolism strong that helps us to digest food. However, when more than the required amount of creatine is produces by the body, a major portion of this compound is left unprocessed. The waste of this compound is known as Creatinine. People who suffer from high creatinine levels do not necessarily mean that they are suffering from kidney disease. However, ignoring this problem can definitely result in serious kidney problems. How Creatinine Affects? As mentioned above, Kidneys are responsible for filtering out toxins and waste compounds from our blood. This process is done by tiny blood vessels present inside the kidneys. High creatinine levels affect the kidneys of the patients. The excessive amount of creatinine makes it difficult for the blood vessels to process the waste compound; as a result, these blood vessels either get damaged or do not perform their functions properly. Once these blood vessels stop performing their function properly, our kidneys are unable to maintain the water levels inside our body which could result in many more complications. Moreover, if a patient who is already suffering from a kidney disease experiences high creatinine levels, things might become serious for him. Already damaged kidneys and high creatinine levels can result in kidney failure. Patients suffering from high creatinine levels are usually advised by homeopathic or allopathic doctors for kidney dialysis or kidney transplant in worst cases. However, all these procedures only end up making the condition worse. This is where Ayurvedic medicine for Creatinine plays an important role. The use of Ayurveda and Ayurvedic medicine in treating Creatinine problems are discussed in the last section of this article. What Leads to High Creatinine Levels?  There is no particular cause for high creatinine levels. There are many factors that play an important role in the increased amount of creatinine levels. Heavy doses of medications, excessive consumption of protein supplements, and other food items could be the possible cause of high creatinine levels. It has been found that people who consume a protein-rich diet or have a history of blood pressure issues could suffer from high creatinine levels. As discussed earlier, already damaged kidneys could also result in heavy creatinine levels because of improper functioning of kidneys and blood vessels. In most cases, people having kidney dysfunctions suffer from high creatinine levels. Here are some of the possible causes of a person having kidney failure: Diabetes (high sugar content in blood damages the blood vessels responsible for filtering blood) Muscular Dystrophy Sudden Blood Loss Goodpasture Syndrome Disorders like Lupus, etc. Good and Bad Creatinine Levels Creatinine levels depend on person to person. They are usually different for Males, Females, and Children. In males, the range of good creatinine levels falls between 0.8 milligram/decilitre and 1.3 milligrams/decilitre. In females, the range of good creatinine levels falls between 0.6 milligram/decilitre and 1.1 milligrams/decilitre In children, 0.2 – < milligram/deciliter creatinine level is considered good. Note: In any above-mentioned case, the creatinine levels go beyond the range; it could result in many problems that might be life-threatening. Consulting an Ayurvedic doctor for the treatment is the best thing to get quick relief from all kinds of kidney diseases. How Do High Creatinine Levels Affect? At its initial stages, it is difficult to identify whether a person is suffering from a high creatinine level. When the condition becomes worse, a patient can identify the following symptoms:  Itching all over the body Frequent Muscle Cramps Nausea Loss of Appetite Breathing Difficulties Insomnia (sleeping difficulty) Fatigue Restlessness  Hematuria (blood in urine), etc. Ayurveda Heals! Ayurveda is that branch of medical science that focuses only on natural methods and medicines for curing a disease. Especially, when it comes to kidney diseases, Ayurvedic Methods do not fail to surprise us with their treatments that are created differently for different patients. Creatinine is one such problem related to kidneys that has a drastic effect on the patients.  Unlike other medical treatments available, Ayurvedic Treatment for Creatinine promises a long-term solution to this problem as it does not just focus on giving relief from the disease but also revives the complete body. Even if we talk about Ayurvedic Medicine used for Creatinine treatment, all these medicines are made from rare herbs and plants with medicinal qualities.  Ayurveda works on two things while curing kidney disease. These are: Ahar (food) Vihar (lifestyle) Once a patient starts bringing these changes into his life, he/she experiences amazing results on the kidneys as well as body. Our diet and lifestyle are two major factors that make our body healthy. Here are some of the major things are suggested by Ayurvedic health experts for patients suffering from high creatinine levels: Avoiding Excessive Exercise: Creatine is a compound produced naturally by movements in muscles. When a person suffering from creatinine problems or kidney disease gets into the excessive workout, it results in an increased amount of creatinine that is harmful to the body. It can result in kidney failure and other serious problems. Protein Supplements: If you are a gym freak, you might be consuming excessive amounts of protein supplements for muscle generation. However, with a damaged kidney, these protein-rich food products could further increase the amount of creatine in your body. Consuming Fibrous Food Products: Ayurveda always suggests the patients consume a more fiber-rich diet as it disturbs the excessive amount of creatinine stores inside the body. Drinking Enough Water: Everyone should drink enough water to keep the body hydrated. Kidney problems due to high creatinine levels usually result in water loss. Hence it is advised to drink enough water to keep the body hydrated throughout the day.  Note: The food products and water must be consumed according to the healthcare experts. Over or under consumption might result in more problems.
