Adulterant Creatinine Reading
Co-tango usually: The BUN is usually 10 times the creatinine. When the creatinine goes up, the BUN goes up similarly to roughly keep this proportion, in most kidney disease states. The notable exception is when the creatinine goes up say by 20% to 1.2, but the BUN goes up *5 to 50. This strongly suggests a pre-renal state, commonly dehydration. Mild elevations of BUN with normal creatinines aren't of concern. ...Read more
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
Maybe, kidney diseas: In prior answers, explained bun, creatinine, normal ratio, and high ratio. Low ratio means that the BUN is likely low or normal with relation to the creatinine, indicating that there is adequate blood or volume flowing to the kidneys, but the kidneys are impaired or disease in some way. Need a nephrologist - kidney specialist. ...Read more
Decrease in flow.: Bun=blood urea nitrogen, byproduct of proteins ingested, if rise to high levels due to kidney problem, can cause toxic affects on the body. Creatinine= measurement of renal function. Normal bun/cr ratio about 10. The higher that ratio, the more likely it is not intrinsic kidney disease per se, but reduction in blood flow or volume to kidney, like when on strong diuretic-prerenal-reversible. ...Read more
Following a recent blood draw, my creatinine reading was off the chart 25 mg/dl it had been 1.2. I self cath every 6 hours. Is that sufficient?
Hi sir my mothers serum creatinine lab reading is 3.1, is it causesany heavy problem to the kidneys?
Renal Insufficiency: Discuss this with her and pcp. This is consistent with renal insufficiency or early renal failure. If pcp is comfortable managing this, is not a problem as long as your mom follow instructions and take medications (i.e. For blood pressure) as indicated and avoid things like high protein in diet. Other conditions (i.e. Diabetes) should be well controlled. She can progress but hard to predict. ...Read more
How to reduce serum creatinine and blood urea level for 62 yr old male
right now the readings are:
serum creatinine ---> 2.1
blood urea --->67?
High creatinine: You need to see a nephroloigist (n) for a history, physical examination and lab studies. You need a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance and protein determination. You also need more blood work and a renal ultrasound to see the size and morphology of your kidneys. If you have some obstruction of your urinary tract, lowering of you elevated levels may be possible. See a n for more infoirmation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi, why should exercising cause a trace amount of blood in urine test? also if orange juice, coffee, and cola is drank within 3 or 4 hrs of urine test at Physician's office can that give false creatinine and albumin readings?
Myoglobin: Working out hard releases a little myoglobin into your bloodstream and thence the urine, and pounding the pavement can wreck some red cells and their contents leaks into the urine. There is no "false" creatinine urine assay; it's a normal component that varies with your muscle mass. It won't give false albuminuria. The most common cause of protein in the urine is orthostatic proteinuria, harmless ...Read more
