GLUTEN FREE DIET: He fits Criteria for obesity. I would also suggest if he is fatigued and sleepy during the day, to obtain a sleep study. Especially if collar size greater than 18. I would suggest a gluten free diet with gradual transition. To paleo diet. Making sure to rotate his food daily. Also full blood work update with thyroid studies and testosterone levels should be obtained. Also increase activity

What kind if food that is need to eat if you have 8.5 creatinine and 8.5 hemoglobin what best food to reduce creatinine levels.

What kind if food that is need to eat if you have 8.5 creatinine and 8.5 hemoglobin what best food to reduce creatinine levels.

No such thing: Creatinine is not a toxin, it's a crude surrogate marker used to calculate how much blood is cleaned per unit time and body surface. I'm assuming you are or staked asking for a dialysis patient. For diet, you mainly need to worry about potassium on phosphorus content as well as sodium. Those are far important. But there is no food to lower creatinine.
