Re: i wish to lower my creatinine level of 160

Creatinine is not necessarily something you can lower. It is a byproduct of muscle metabolism, not something you ingest like potassium or sodium. You say you have had a liver transplant. Are you on prograf (aka tacrolimus)? It can raise creatinine also. Your level is not that high. Have you had overall kidney function tests done? What does your doctor say. The level is not that far out of range at this point. Has the level been changing? Sorry I'm asking all these questions, but it is not something you can do easily. Try not to worry too much. Make sure you keep hydrated. This is important for you kidneys.

Feel free to ask lots of questions here. There is good support.

Re: i wish to lower my creatinine level of 160

Hello, after quite the scare with my kidney transplant the docs for me increased my EPREX level to 18,000 units a week, and just only 6months go my creatinine was liken 600 and i was told that it would never go below 400 again, they were planning dialysis and a new pyschila andall that, but now my creatine has returned to 245-250.Wlrking with iron and the EPREX at the same time has worked wonders for me
