Got the results of a blood test. Low sodium and creatinine..I'm on lisinipril and hctz (hydrochlorothiazide). Could that have caused it? Also have pain under low-right ribs
Too much alcohol: The combination of lisinopril, HCTZ, (hydrochlorothiazide) and 3 alcohol drinks a day can cause low sodium. That's too much alcohol - sorry. The pain under your right ribs may be originating in your liver or gall-bladder as both live there. That should be checked. Low creatinine (even below the lab reference) is not harmful and reflects your muscle mass and normal kidney function. (I presume you're pretty small). ...Read more

My child is 12 years old. He has done a creatinine blood test and got a low result = 0.45. Is this of any significance? Thank you
He's healthy: As mentioned, creatinine is a substance the kidneys are supposed to filter, it's a byproduct and should be very low in the blood stream. Normal values are generally based on an average for what adults would have, and children's kidneys are healthy and much more efficient. For lab tests in children, ignore the "normals" and ask your pediatrician for an interpretation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Muscle mass: Low cretinine is by it self not an issue. From your description you may have a low muscle mass.

My mother is diabetic from past 15 yrs age 52 and serum creatinine level 8 is found in yesterday blood test.what is this problem?how procede furthur
Creatinine of 8?: Hi. I'm sorry, but if her creatinine is 8 (you do mean 8, right, not 0.8?), she's in kidney failure. She will have to see a nephrologist SOON to have an arterio-venous fistula placed to get ready for dialysis, and if appropriate, get on a transplant list. This is probably a result of chronically very poor diabetes & blood pressure control. If she controls her diabetes & BP, she may save her eyes. ...Read more
