I have been following the BTD for many years now.  My blood work at the doctor is showing I have high creatinine and something is wrong with my kidneys.  I am still in shock. I am "the health nut" at work and the one who is always eating celery.  They will schedule an ultra sound of my kidneys in a week.  Meanwhile, what do I eat?  The internet says to avoid protein and eat grains.  I am not supposed to have grains!  any ideas, please

Hello,
Was it only one blood test, or did they re-run it and the creatinine was still high?
Is it possible that the blood test was skewed ? I.e. were you possibly dehydrated, or was your diet higher than usual in protein and/or potassium or sodium rich foods?
My father had kidney failure and his diet was extremely limited, but that was after kidney failure when he was on dialysis.
My mother donated a kidney to him and her remaining kidney now (15 years after transplant) has reduced function. She too tested high for creatinine a couple of years ago. She changed her diet and her creatinine values improved and held steady since. She is BT O+ and only eats small amounts, maybe 4-5 oz daily, of animal protein.
I believe a normal kidney friendly diet is making sure you drink enough to be well hydrated and to help flush out toxins and avoiding a high animal protein diet.
How much animal protein do you consume on an average day?
A total of 8oz of lean meat, poultry or fish per day is supposedly enough for most women.
Unless your doctor told you that you need to avoid protein, I don't think you need to do any drastic dietary changes until you know more.
Hopefully the ultrasound will show that everything is ok.

it might be a precursor for inflammatory process as well but then have an eye onto the skala of erythopoietin..... perhaps also some lacks which are shown right now
rmemeber it well it's justamente mentioned in lr4yt that the B's and AB's have to take more care about kidney issues....

Mine was high a couple of times but I was dehydrated.  A repeat of the test when I had had enough water to drink resulted in a normal level.

High creatinine levels could be due to heavy metals such as mercury. Chelation therapy is good when done with an experienced doctor.

It could very well be nothing but a little dehydration or too much protein intake.  How much protein are you eating?  Do you stay pretty close to your recommended amounts in SWAMI of protein and all of your foods?

I think I was eating way too much protein.  I snack all the time on pumpkin seeds, eat turkey jerky, chicken for lunch, some other kind of meat for supper.  I thought O's were supposed to do good on meat.  For the past couple of months I have added more raw vegetables, and I always have some baked pumpkin for breakfast.  I have been eating zero grains in hopes of loosing weight.  Both the protein level in my urine and the creatinine level were high.  I have cut back on my protein.  Thanks for all your suggestions.  

I wonder what else has protein that I am not aware of...

Has your MD ever ventured to tell you why your kidneys appear to be leaking protein and more creatinine than it should?

Sometimes drugs and antibiotics can cause these problems. My sister has a friend who cannot take the antibiotic Cipro without it elevating her renal function tests. A telltale sign that something is awry is if you have edema (swelling) around your feet and ankles.

I hope you and your doc can solve the mystery.
