There are a number of things that you can adapt to help lower your serum creatinine levels. The relationship between creatinine and food is very important because having too much of certain foods will increase levels and could potentially cause kidney damage. You can create a diet to reduce serum creatinine as long as you lower the intake of certain foods.

  • Potassium
It is important to keep in mind that potassium levels increase when individuals experience problems with their kidneys. If you are advised to lower your intake of potassium then you should be aware of the foods that contain large amounts of it. This includes a range of fruits such as bananas and oranges as well as vegetables including carrots and lettuce.

  • Sodium
Monitoring sodium intake is important because this can increase serum creatinine levels. Having a certain amount of sodium is necessary for the body but it is very easy to have too much of it. This can be difficult to monitor because so many foods contain levels of salt in the ingredients.

  • Protein
We all need protein in our systems in order to maintain muscles and repair tissue when needed. However, it can produce certain waste into our bodies such as urea which is not easily filtered by the kidneys. If they are already damaged then this could increase levels of creatinine.

  • Phosphorus and Calcium
When experiencing kidney problems, your body can contain too much phosphorus and little calcium, so it is advised that you steer clear from foods that contain high levels of phosphorus. Therefore try and refrain from eating too many nuts or cheese. Also try not to drink coca cola or beer.

Normal creatinine levels are 0.5 to 1.0 mg/dL for women and 0.7 to 1.2 mg/dL for men. In terms of μmol/L, normal levels are 45-90 μmol/L for women and 60-110 μmol/L for men. The creatinine levels are measured to know kidney function. Its elevated levels in blood and reduced levels in urine indicate abnormal kidney function. If you are a male then your creatinine levels (93) are normal. If you are female, then your creatinine levels are slightly elevated which really does not mean abnormal kidney function. To confirm abnormal kidney functions some more investigations are required. Some medicines lika ACE inhibotors and H2 antihistamine can also cause reversible increase in the serum histamin levels. As you are taking antihistamine for cold, this might be reason for your elevated creatinine levels. After completing the treatment, creatine levels will be back to normal.

Creatinine is produced by the break down of creatine which is important component of the muscles. Its normal levels in the blood are 0.8 to 1.4 mg/dL. These levels are low in women than men. Your creatinine levels are marginally elevated which can be due to Diabetic nephropathy because you are having diabetes. You can reduce your creatinine levels by controlling blood sugar and blood pressure.

Inorganic phosphate is needed to produce cretine phosphate for muscle contraction which eventually produce ATP and creatinine. Therefor you should eat which have less amount of phosphate!
See the chart on the link and make your meal chart accordingly!
