How to reduce creatinine in blood test of my husband it is 118 ummol/L .his medicine Ezetrol and Asprin.

How to reduce creatinine in blood test of my husband it is 118 ummol/L .his medicine Ezetrol and Asprin.

Don't Rx lab values: If this is your husband and he's reasonably well-muscled, it's probably normal. When I was lifting weights daily, my creatinine was 1.6-1.7 -- making mine 141 compared to your husband's 118. Or he may have mild renal insufficiency.

Creatinine 118 umol/Lin blood test  how to reduce it ?

Don't Rx a lab value: My first concern is whether one of your arthritis meds is causing a mild interstitial nephritis. Your physician is the one who can answer this. You may be in for a trial of a medication change and/or a check of your ability to concentrate urine -- or this very slightly elevated creatinine may just be the result of getting a little older and perhaps having had some past damage. ...Read more

He's healthy: As mentioned, creatinine is a substance the kidneys are supposed to filter, it's a byproduct and should be very low in the blood stream. Normal values are generally based on an average for what adults would have, and children's kidneys are healthy and much more efficient. For lab tests in children, ignore the "normals" and ask your pediatrician for an interpretation. ...Read more

No: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, your creatinine is within normal limits. If you are a muscular person there would be even less cause for concern. ...Read more
