We have to eat low salt and Phosphorous foods.

Can you suggest the foods? Because foods such as Whole Grain, Oranges, beans, legumes,leafy vegetables and carrot which are supposed to be taken by heart patients or not recommended for People with high creatinine.

So which foods can control both of these?

Hi,
Welcome back.
The above mentioned foods are ok.
If not seen already, please consult a nephrologist to assess the extent of kidney function.
If the creatinine as you mentioned is 1.88, no great diet changes are required.
Half salt is a must. Protein XXXXXXX foods like egg/ pulses and meat need to be restricted to half the intake now.
A dietitian's help may be needed to plan what is called RENAL DIET. The nephrologist will get help you get in touch with a dietitian.
Best regards
