Protein Urine Random 35  Creatinine, Ur  143.0 Protein/Creat Ratio 0.2  mg.  commet Nephrotic ratio> 3.5   No standard values given. kidneys ok??

Proteinuria: Protein/creatinine ratio of 0.2 is within the normal reference range. So, there is no significant increase in urine protein. I am concerned about hematuria and painful joints. Is hematuria repeatedly present? Is BP normal? Why swollen feet? What other testing has been done? Is ANA present? Have you had a recent infection? Is serum creatinine changing? Is urine albumin/creat ratio known? ...Read more

Urine chemistry. MA RANDOM URINE 4.7H ref rng<1.9 mg/dl  Comments. =1= results is expressed in ug microalbumim/mg creatine help interpret this.

Kidney function: Microalbumin is a test used to measure the progression of kidney damage in patients who are at risk. Ex. Patients with diabetes, high blood pressure. In patients with normal kidneys, albumin is kept inside the body. If its found in the urine, it means the kidney is damaged and can't hold the albumin in. Taking meds like advil and ibuprofen hurt your kidneys as well. Keep your pressure controlled ...Read more

What means an urine-to plasma creatinine ratio > 200? My urine creatinine was 171mg/dl, serum creatinine 0.8mg/dl, ratio:213.

Nothing: This is a meaningless number that is primarily a function of how much water you were drinking. It's used to help calculate other labs. ...Read more

Random sample: urine protein 31mg/l urine albumin 5.00mg/l urine creatinine 3.894mmol/l urine albumin creatinine:ratio 1.3mg/mmol is this normal?

Is this a test?: Slight variation in the reports from different laboratories does exist. So, please refer to the attached normal range for interpretation. I'm sure there is such information for you to reconcile. If any doubt, talk and confirm with the attending doctor. Best ... ...Read more

Blood test: estimated creatinine clearance test (low), what could it indicate? EGFR & creatinine normal. Potassium & sodium low. 28yr/f

Blood test: estimated creatinine clearance test (low), what could it indicate? EGFR & creatinine normal. Potassium & sodium low. 28yr/f

How do you FEEL?: Many (maybe most) pathologists and nephrologists aren't impressed with the current practice of labs estimate GFR, creatinine clearance and so forth from a spot creatinine. Some formulas include race "because black people are more muscular than white people" -- these were never intended to be applied to individuals. Frankly, if your others labs are healthy, I'd ignore it. ...Read more

Dehydrated: 39 F from Indy of unknown ethnicity medical or drugs notes low rbc high bun and high urine Na creat. ANS: sounds like anemia and dehydration or renal disease.

Low creatinine and elevated bun/creatinine ratioplease interpret?

Stop worrying: Low creatinine is never a health concern. Reference ranges are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside on either end. The ratio can be up if you're a little thirsty or ate a protein-rich meal lately. ...Read more

High value of creatinine clearance.Serum creatinine 0, 8mg/dl.Creat. Clearance 165ml/min.Normal value from 80 to130.What's the relevance of high value?

High value of creatinine clearance.Serum creatinine 0, 8mg/dl.Creat. Clearance 165ml/min.Normal value from 80 to130.What's the relevance of high value?

Don't worry: A high estimated GFR means nothing whateve except that the estimate has little to do with reality. The fad for estimating glomerular filtration rates in healthy people based on a correlation with serum creatinine is unscientific and has many pathologists and nephrologists unhappy. Ignore it. ...Read more

What does a high bun/creatinine ratio reading mean?

See below: An elevated BUN with normal creatinine and a ratio of [generally more than 18-20] occurs most commonly in dehydrated individuals and is not a sign of kidney damage.It may also occur in in certain other conditions like bleeding in the intestines, artificial nutrition intravenously of Amino Acids and use of steroids. ...Read more

Hba1c-6.5, microalbumin cetatinine ratio 119mg/gm other readings are normal?

Hba1c-6.5, microalbumin cetatinine ratio 119mg/gm other readings are normal?

Proteinuria: The hba1c of 6.5% is consistent with overall good diabetes control. However, the microalbumin ratio is high, suggesting that you are leaking protein through your kidneys. This can be an early sign of diabetes affecting your kidneys. You should do a 24 hr urine collection for protein excretion to better assess this. You likely should be on a ace inhibitor or arb to help protect your kidneys. ...Read more

ACR test morning sample - 17mg/dl microalbumin urine, Creatinine is 0.6 in blood.. No bp issue or sugar.

Normal: The albumin/creatinine ratio (ACR) urine test is used to detect the presence of abnormal amount of protein (albumin) in the urine which is often an early sign of kidney disease and an important prognostic marker in pts with diabetes and hypertension and a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Your results (ACR 17 mg/dl and serum creatinine 0.6) are indicative or normal kidney function. ...Read more

Sounds like you: had a urine test for infection? Results look like you may have a mild UTI, though some of the numbers do not match up with the test acronym. Make sure you drink plenty of water and take antibiotics given with food. If you have pain on urination, the healthcare provider can give you some medicine to numb that area up for a couple of days. ...Read more
