Does S. Creatinine level has anything to do with body weight?

Does S. Creatinine level has anything to do with body weight?

Yes: If you're well-muscled (from resistance training or being fat), your creatiine levels go up. When I was lifting weights every day, mine ran 1.6 to 1.8 -- that would get me flagged nowadays as "chronic kidney disease" though in fact it was healthy. You're a person, not a bunch of numbers, and all labs require interpretation. Thanks for your question. ...Read more

Elevated ratio: Hi Oskcar. You lab levels are normal and your ratio is high due to your low creatinine level.

If not, you need not worry, if they were, ingest more fluids to reduce them and lower your ratio. ...Read more

Body profile: creatinine found 2 with uric acid 6. Is kidney biopsy necessary?

Kidney biopsy?: I would go to a nephrologist for an evaluation of why your creatinine (c) is 2. .You should have a 24 hour urine collection for c clearance and protein. If you have more than 500 mg of protein/24 hours in your collection, more blood work will be needed to see what the problem is. If it does not, a kidney biopsy will be needed to get a diagnosis and prognosis. Your uric acid level is normal. ...Read more

My mother has an impaired kidney with creatinine between 4-5. Has developed severe body itching recently. Any help for itching? Not on dialysis yet

My mother has an impaired kidney with creatinine between 4-5. Has developed severe body itching recently. Any help for itching? Not on dialysis yet

Itching and dialysis: Your mother needs to be seen by a nephrologist to see if she needs to be on dialysis. Itching is one of the indications to start dialysis. I would imagine that your mother is near 60. Have her doctor collect a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance (cc). If the result is < 10 ml/min, she will need to start dialysis and that would stop her itching. Check her serum phosphorus and pth. Good luck. ...Read more
