Bmp 7 Can Reverse Kidney Failure
BMP results: elevated BUN, elevated k+ , elevated chloride, decreased Co2.
Could this indicate kidney failure? Potentially from IVIG?
The kidneys are paired organs that lie on either side of the vertebral column. Part of their critical functions include the excretion of urine and removal of nitrogenous wastes products from the blood. They regulate acid-base, electrolyte, fluid balance and blood pressure. Through hormonal signals, the kidneys control the ...Read more
I had a bmp which showed my bun was 13 and my creatine was 0.85. Does this mean i don't have any kidney issues or could i still have kidney disease?
E. coli: The so-called enterohemorrhagic e. Coli is linked to a particular form of kidney disease called hemolytic uremic syndrome. Type o157 is the most common but other o types can also cause this. Anti microbial agents not only do not prevent the kidney complication but clearly are linked to a higher risk of it. However, e.Coli sepsis of other types can cause kidney failure that may be prevented by rx. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Acute kidney failure caused by meds. Stopped meds and got better. Creatin level falling 1.9-1.7-1.6-1.3 at last test. Is this good?

It appears your renal problem was diagnosed and treated appropriately and you are on the road to recovery. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Labs: 8/11: bun 20/creatinine 1.4. 1/12: bun 20/creatinine 1.15. 6/1/12: bun 23/creatine 1.39. 6/20/12: bun 17/creatine 1.4. 7/24/12: bun 22/creatinine 1.4. 9/12: bun 24/creatine 1.3. Kidney failure?
I'm puzzled.: Has there been something said that makes you think you are at risk for kidney failure? I'm not seeing this from your labs. The creatinine (a breakdown product from muscle and eliminated by the kidney) is a little generous - but it's not increasing. That's what you would typically see in kidney disease. I'm curious as to the number of tests you've had; make an appt with your doctor to clarify this. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My hemoglobin was 7.5 before surgery & my iron less than 10 I went into kidney failure could this have caused it?
Acute (sudden): Renal failure has three main causes. A sudden, serious drop in blood flow to the kidneys. Heavy blood loss, an injury, or a bad infection called sepsis can reduce blood flow to the kidneys. Not enough fluid in the body (dehydration) can also harm the kidneys. Damage from some medicines, poisons, or infections. A sudden blockage that stops urine from flowing out of the kidneys (stones and tumors). ...Read more
Chronic kidneydiseas: Chronic kidney failure is the loss of functioning kidney tissue due to permanent damage to the tiny subunits called nephrons.We have about a million nephrons per kidney, and as we lose nephrons the ones that are left enlarge and work harder until they reach their limit, at which point the kidney can no longer keep up with the body's needs to excrete toxins, balance fluids and minerals and other fx. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
