Creatinine Level 3 And Hemoglobin 9 .. Need Dietary Suggestion

Please provide information on how to maintain creatinine levels. My creatinine is level 3 and my hemoglobin is 9.

Answer

Hi Nimi:

A normal creatinine result is 0.7 to 1.3 mg/dL for men and 0.6 to 1.1 mg/dL for women. So your creatinine is well above the norm. Do you have kidney disease? With your numbers you need to be sure to be following close with your nephrologist or other physicians. Both your hemoglobin and creatinine are abnormal. Your physician would inform you what diet is recommended and vital to follow. You more than likely could just call their office and speak to their nurse; it wouldn't necessarily require a doctor visit.

Take care,
