Lowering creatinine: Weight loss will help. The less you weigh the less creatinine produced and less filtering the kidneys need to do. Stopping / avoiding non steroidal antiinflammatory drugs (nsaids) will help improve kidney function immediately. Otherwise, not much else 'natural' that will help lower creatinine (improve kidney function). Controlling blood pressure important to protect remaining function. Good luck.
