Consume Snakehead Fish When Kidney Function Is Impaired?
I had a stroke and my kidney function was impaired, lab results. last week my creatinine was 1.87. My question is, can I consume snakehead fish? as we know that snakehead fish is rich in albumin. thanks.
The kidney is an important organ. The kidneys function to perform filtration and help maintain the body's blood pressure. From the examination you did, the creatinine level was 1.87, indeed above the normal limit. This can be caused by various causes such as: dehydration, acute kidney failure, chronic kidney failure, side effects of certain drugs.
For people who have impaired kidney function, then you can just consume snakehead fish. You can also consume other types of fish, and can also consume other protein sources such as chicken, eggs, tofu, tempeh, beef.
If you have impaired kidney function, you should consult an internal medicine doctor directly, so that the doctor can check your condition further.
