(November 9, 2010)

I am suffering from IgA Nephropathy kidney disease and my creatinine level in the blood is 2.1 and its normal value is 1.3. Please help me to advice suitable yogasanas to reduce creatinine level in the blood.


Creatine is produced by the liver, pancreas and kidneys. It is a nitrogenous acid which is stored in the cells of the muscles. Creatine supplies the muscles with energy and enables them to function properly. Some of the creatine is converted into creatinine in the muscles. The amount of both substances depends upon the muscle mass and hence they are present in higher levels in men. Excessive intake of creatinine supplements can lead to increase in creatinine levels in the blood. High levels of creatinine elevate the risk of kidney damage, dehydration and heart problems. Excess amounts of creatinine in the blood may also result in heart palpitations. Some people affected with this condition may experience difficulty in urinating. Other causes of high creatinine levels include urinary tract infections, hypertension, diabetes, kidney stones and continuous intake of antibiotics. Regular practice of yoga for symptoms of creatinine levels in blood is known to be beneficial.
One of the yoga poses that are helpful in reducing creatinine levels in the blood is Ardha Matsendrasana (Half Spinal Twist). To perform this pose, sit on the floor with the spine erect and legs stretched out in front of you. Lift your right leg, bring it over the left thigh and place it against the outer left thigh. Keep the sole of the foot firmly on the floor. Then stretch your left arm and hold the toes of your right foot while you draw your right arm around your waist and touch your left palm to the left hip bone. The back must remain straight at all times. Inhale deeply and turn your head, shoulders and back towards your right slowly. Hold this position for as long as it is comfortable and then release.

Other natural ways of reducing the creatinine levels in the blood involve consumption of plenty of water. It is important to drink at least six glasses of water in the morning when you awake. Avoid having coffee and opt for green tea instead. Also avoid consumption of foods high in protein such as fish, meat and poultry. This reduces stress on the kidneys. Many people make use of protein trackers so that they can monitor the daily intake of protein. Regular exercise is also essential and a brisk walk daily goes a long way in keeping the body healthy. It is also necessary to track creatinine levels regularly.

After this, start having a well balanced low protein vegeteranian diet that is low in protein and rich in raw and cooked fruits and vegetables.
