Nowadays more and more people are trying to lead a healthy way of life by eating vital food and spending a couple of hours in the gym on a regular basis. Of, course these actions deserve admirations but it seems like most people do it because they are concerned about their appearance not the proper condition of their internal organs. They have undergone excessive diets in order to clean their bodies from the toxins accumulated without realizing that every diet is considered to be stressful for every body. Although the food supplements, sold by different reputable brands are said to be useful, sometimes they do more harm than good so every body builder has to make a precise decision.
Taking proper care of your body doesn’t mean only lifting heavy stuff, it means paying attention to the signs that serve as a clue that there’s something wrong with your health and urgent actions are required. Let’s take a closer look at the creatinine clearance, its importance for your general condition and the condition of your kidneys in particular.
In brief, the creatinine clearance is a simple test that measures the waste product creatinine so the doctor can check if your kidneys are working properly in accordance with the dynamic of your life, age and so on. This test has one great advantage. It is one of the most accurate ones because the food, you have eaten the previous day don’t have any impact on the results. Apart from the food supplements, meat contains the substance called creatine. Due to the metabolism processes, the creatine breaks down to creatinine which is pretty much useless so it is processed through the kidneys and passed out of your body.
What to watch out for?
Watch out for the levels of creatinine in your body. Sometimes that’s a warning for a serious medical condition although there are some exceptions: if you perform tiresome physical exercises or eat large quantities of meat, having high levels of creatinine is normal. However, even if you feel good, you should try to get it down by cutting down on meat for a couple of days, eating fresh fruits – mainly citrus ones and pears, stop eating white bread, drink mineral water. There is a home made receipt for creatinine clearance as well: put six tablespoons of rice in a container and cover the rice with water overnight. Boil it in the morning and eat it on breakfast. It is important to note that you shouldn’t eat anything for the next two hours. It is worthy giving it a try but the results should be expected in a month or so.
Don’t forget that your health is your top priority. Ask for medical help and visit your doctor regularly in order to avoid unpleasant surprises and serious diseases. The creatinine clearance is just like the regular clearance at home. You feel responsible for vacuuming, dusting, doing the laundry and ironing and you know postponing it would result in a great clutter. You’d better have the same attitude towards your health. The efforts you make will definitely pay off. Being in a good shape and having the right state of mind will make you more productive and will help you lead a happier and healthier way of life.
