Causes Of Anemia And High Urea Nitrogen
Blood work done these are the results Urea nitrogen 22.2 high Urea nitrogen / creatinine 20.6 high Being a hep c patient Concern or not?
Creatinine level?: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, your test results may be normal. You did not provide creatinine level but by calculating from the data you gave it is 1.08 and it is normal. You do not need to worry about these results. Do take treatment for Hep C as it is curable ...Read more
Uriine-urythocytes high, ketones 20, leukocyte esters large, leukocytes 40, nitrates positive. In blood-leukocytes high, urea nitrogen low. Am I dying?
You have a uti: When a urinalysis shows large Leukocytes and nitrites positive you have a urinary tract infection and need antibiotics pending the culture report. On your blood test, you said leukocytes high which indicates infection. If you have fever and chills and back pain, could be kidney infection and may need treatment at Emergency Room now. You are not dying, but need urgent treatment ...Read more
Here are some...: Blood urea nitrogen reflects extrinsic nitrogen intake and blood concentration. Hence, the common causes for mild elevated BUN are dehydration and high-protein diet under assuming kidney works well. In addition, kidney failure or poor circulation like heart failure may cause BUN to rise. To know more how it may mean, testing blood for creatinine, BUN, BUN to Creatinine ratio has been the standard. ...Read more
**BUN/creatinine level is 54.7**??? urea nitrogen is 29, creatinine is 0.53, eGFR is 128, potassium is 4.4. Cause for concern? I literally cannot find anything anywhere about a BUN/creatinine level that high.
BUN/GFR 54.7: I would not worry. It is a ratio-calculated value. Your BUN is 29 (normal < 20) but that could be due to either mild dehydration or high protein in body (unless you are actively bleeding). Your creatinine is 0.53 which is great. The ratio is BUN/Cr 29/0.53 = 54.7. Your GFR another number we look seriously at is 128 great, potassium is 4.4 normal. Do not worry it is an artifact of the math ...Read more
That is high...: BUN at 67.53 mg/dl alone indicates something wrong in the function of kidney because it's uncommon to raise to this level from dehydration or internal bleeding or excessive nitrogen intake. So, look into serum creatinine, electrolytes, etc. So to correlate with overall clinical pictures and deduce the realistic clinical significance. Hence, see & ask Doc for detail and specifics. Best wish. .. ...Read more
Cr 0.44, urea nitrogen 13.8, bun/cr ratio 31.egfr 170.2. Is this kidney problem? No stones. Low cr since 2 years. Electrolytes normal. What is the cause
Is it possible to have high creatinine, high blood urea nitrogen and high potassium levels simultaneously?
Creatinine levels rising slightly along with urea nitrogen. Creatinine still within normal limit, urea nitro above. ABS Lymphos Above as well. Why?
Here are some...: Regrading serum creatinine and BUN (blood urea nitrogen), please go to http://www. Medicinenet. Com/creatinine_blood_test/article.

I am on a vegetarian diet with no exercise my urea nitrogen came back 6.5 (6-20mg/dl)and createnine 0.43 (0.5-0.9 mg/dl).plz coment with egfr of 175.
Stop worrying: That's normal if you're on a vegetarian diet. This is a healthy choice provided that you supplement, and are aware that it is difficult to get enough protein, iron, calcium, B12 and a bunch of other things. Much of what vegetarians write for interested parties about the supposed benefits is disinformation / untruths, but it does give you the moral high ground. Choose wisely. ...Read more
Liver chemical: This is a measurement of a concentration of urea in the blood stream and is related to the health of the liver. If the liver is dysfunctional, the level - termed BUN - will rise. This is part of most blood screening tests. ...Read more
Blood work came back and my creatinine level is 0.49 and urea nitrogen is 7. What does this mean?
I have low urea nitrogen counts, blood is checked few times each month this year, always low what could be causing this? On peg/j tube last few months
See below.: "low" BUN is really of no consequence unless accompanied by other lab abnormalities. Just a measure of the concentration of protein in your blood. This may be high as a result of dehydration or very high protein intake or low as a result of excess fluid or low protein intake. Your low number is probably related to your tf and the reason for your tf. ...Read more
kidney dysfunction: Creatinine is a byproduct of muscle metabolism and is excreted by the kidneys. High serum creatinine generally indicate kidney damage.High levels can be seen in muscle damage, people who consume creatine supplements. BUN is also a byproduct of protein metabolism which is excreted by the kidneys. If serum BUN and creatinine are elevated, it suggests that there may be kidney dysfunction. ...Read more
