What does it mean if you are prone to getting kidney stones and have regularly elevated neutrophil counts and elevated c reactive protein?
If you have low c3c and low phosphate levels but all other labs normal does that mean you probably have glomernephritis?
Not likely.: Glomerulonephritis has many causes and has signs of renal failure, like hematuria and proteinuria, and oliguria. These are blood and protein in the urine, and low urine output respectively. Salt and water are retained, and red blood cell casts on urinalysis confirms diagnosis. Your decreased c3c might point to lupus which can have renal involvement, so get checked, but kidneys seem ok for now. ...Read more
Is it true that elevated uric acid and gout can raise creatinine level? My nephro doctor told me so.
Yes: This happens when crystals of uric acid form in the kidney parenchyma -- "urate ephropathy". There is a severe acute form that is unmistakable; there's disagreement as to whether mild elevations of uric acid do this -- i'm a pathologist interested in kidney and haven't seen anatomic evidence that it's so. Consider adding a uric-acid lowering agent if you have clinical gout. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Loss of Aldosterone: Metabolic acidosis (increased h+ and blood acidity) due to decreased bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) level in addisonian crisis is due to loss of the hormone aldosterone because sodium reabsorption in the distal tubule is linked with acid/hydrogen ion (h+) secretion. Less aldosterone stimulation of the renal distal tubule leads to sodium wasting in urine and h+ retention in the serum, resulting in bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) drop. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
