Question: creatine levels

 jjcf - Thu Sep 02, 2004 6:59 pm

My friend had a successful kidney transplant 5 years ago. It was from a cadaver. He has done very well with no complications. Recently his creatine levels have been high. Is there anything he can do to help lower them? Are there things he should or shouldn't eat/drink?

User avatar Hi,
The cause of your rising creatinine levels should be investigated. This is a sign that your kidneys could be failing again. Please consult your nephrologist as soon as possible.

Best regards,
