I am told my Glomerular filtration Rate is 57.6. Does this indicate Kidney disease? Creatinine is 1.0 BUN is 20 total Protein is 7.0 I am 55 w/f

I am told my Glomerular filtration Rate is 57.6. Does this indicate Kidney disease? Creatinine is 1.0 BUN is 20 total Protein is 7.0 I am 55 w/f

GFR: Your Estimated filtration rate is borderline. This is not a problem itself. The important concern is whether disease exists that might be progressive. Serum creatinine of 1.0 is "normal". So is serum creatinine 1.1. However, creatinine relates to muscle mass. If you are small muscled as a. 55 yo woman, then creatinine of 1.1 or 1.0 may indicate some minor impairment in its excretion. ...Read more

Likely ok: If kidney function and electrolytes have remained within normal range, your lower urine output may reflect a higher water loss through skin (sweating) or stool. You may consider increasing your fluid intake a bit although not perhaps necessary. ...Read more

My bun is 31 creatinine is1.6, GFR is35.4. Is this really bad?

My bun is 31 creatinine is1.6, GFR is35.4. Is this really bad?

High creatinine: You should be referred to a nephrologist to better answer your question. A nephrologist will take a history and do a physical exam. If you did not have a 24 hour urine collection for a creatinine clearance and protein, you need to have one done. You will also need to have blood work and a renal ultrasound done as well to arrive at a diagnosis of what is causing your creatinine to be elevated. ...Read more

I have Creatinine level of 1.2, normal BUN, GFR of 56, I'm 31, prolacton level of 82. Any suggestions?

Um, those are: not necessarily abnormal. Prolactin has more significance if it is sky high (it isn't). The others at most would probalby indicate a bit of dehydration. ...Read more

What is the most common cause of the creatinine and bun to be in the normal range and the GFR to be a low 51?

Inconsistent: By definition, creatinine is not normal if the GFR is 51. GFR is calculated from serum creatinine value and if the GFR is below 90, that equates to higher creatinine than would be normal for that person. ...Read more

31 white female, 1.2 creatinine level, normal BUN, 82 Prolaction level, 56 GFR should I be concerned?

31 white female, 1.2 creatinine level, normal BUN, 82 Prolaction level, 56 GFR should I be concerned?

Prolactin and kidney: Hi. Those are two unrelated conditions. Serum prolactin (PRL) can accumulate in chronic kidney disease (CKD), but your CKD is way too mild to cause that. Ergo, you have hyperprolactinemia. Do you have amenorrhea and galactorrhea? If not, the PRL may be a red herring, and macroprolactinemia should be tested for. Why you fall into the category of Stage 4 CKD is unknown to us. So, eval. PRL and CKD ...Read more

should i be concerned?

Low GFR, one kidney: You may hace chronic kidney disease (ckd). Your creatinine level is dependent is your age, sex, race and weight. You are the one to determine what those are. I would suggest you see a neprhologist and collect a 24 hour urine to see how well your one kidney is working. Another test that can be done is an ultrasound of your one kidney to see its size and to see if there is any presence of ckd. ...Read more
