    Patients with high creatinine should be careful in his protein intake, because protein is an essential nutrient for our body, so the necessary amount of protein should be guaranteed.

Thereby, patients with high creatinine need to take high protein foods, or restrict his protein intake strictly.

    4.High fat:

    It is better for patients to avoid taking foods with high fat, because much fat intake is bad for our cardiovascular health. And cardiovascular disease is a major case of death cases.

    5.High oxalate:

    High oxalate foods can promote the formation of kidney stone, which is bad for patient’s kidney function. And kidney stone is a common complication of kidney disease, so it is necessary for patients to avoid taking foods with high oxalate.

    6.High phosphorus and potassium:

    Phosphorus and potassium are two important electrolytes of body, and for patients with high creatinine, they often have the metabolic disorder of these substances, which can cause many health problems, like renal osteopathy, itching, arrhythmia, nausea and vomiting, etc.

    Thereby, patients should avoid taking foods with high levels of potassium and phosphorus, or be careful in taking them, like banana, which contains abundant potassium, and mushroom, which contains much phosphorus.
