Increased aldolase,  complement c3/c4 serum, sed rate, c-react. Protein, beta globulin, monocytes, bun/creatin low mcv-mch, vit d-possible causes?

Complicated: When i was doing clinical medicine, these were collectively sort of the flags for sarcoid disease but I am not saying that's the case here. This is because sarcoid is a diagnosis of exclusion so the advice is to rule out other diseases with additional diagnostic tests which can be done by a primary care physician or rheumatologist. ...Read more

Will high bloodsugar cause low creatin levels in urine? I had blood sugar levels of 300 and above and recently took a drug test that came back having low creatin levels.

Will high bloodsugar cause low creatin levels in urine? I had blood sugar levels of 300 and above and recently took a drug test that came back having low creatin levels.

Diluted urine: A low creatinine is not from elevated sugars, but from excessive water drinking, which is common in diabetics. It means you are drinking enough water to dilute your urine. It is not dangerous, but most drug tests will be considered "adulterated" - a failed test - if the creatinine is below 20. Get your diabetes under control asap. Continued high sugars are dangerous to your health. ...Read more

Does a low phoshorus level and low complement C3 but normal bun and creatin level mean kidney failure?

Does a low phoshorus level and low complement C3 but normal bun and creatin level mean kidney failure?

No: Kidney failure is defined by changes in bun/cr and more correctly GFR (glomerular filtration rate) over time. A normal BUN and cr is reassuring. Usually the phosphorus is high with kidney failure. A low complement (c3) level relates to the immune system and a possible deficiency there. ...Read more

What could cause low creatine isoenzymes?

Don't worry: Creatine kinase levels require clinical correlation. Reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthy folks arbitrarily fall outside. Low CK is never a concern. ...Read more

Is it possible that if my creatine becomes low, my dialysis, (2×week) can be lessened?

Reduced dialysis: Your question can best be answered by your nephrologist (n) as your n knows you best of all. Have you asked your n your question? If not, please do so for a meaningful answer. ...Read more

Doctors, do you think I can die from not having creatine in the body? How can I know if it's too low?

Doctors, do you think I can die from not having creatine in the body? How can I know if it's too low?

Creatine: absolutely not - dont worry about it - you dont need extra creatine and you don need to measure it. In March 2015, a study published by the British Journal of Cancer found that men using supplements containing creatine may have a higher risk of getting testicular cancer . ...Read more

My level of creatine kinase is 49, Is this level low. and what does it mean?

My level of creatine kinase is 49, Is this level low. and what does it mean?

Probably normal: Creatine kinase (CK), also known as creatine phosphokinase (CPK) is an enzyme made by muscle tissues, including the heart muscle. Doctors most often are concerned with high levels of CK, which may indicate muscle damage. "Normal range" varies by laboratory, but a level of 49 is probably within the normal range of most laboratories. ...Read more

C3c low phospherous 1.8 creatine .88 bun 11calcium9.5  c3c 59 does that mean glomerneuphritis?

Lab is not a disease: You do not give us enough data. What you are describing is a normal creatinine (not creatine, i assume), BUN and calcium. Levels are normal. Levels also depend on the specific method used by the laboratory. Can't rule gn in or out without mre data. ...Read more

What are the remedies of high creatine level in blood and what is the effect of low creatine level in blood... Is it dangerous or not?

Depends on cause: High creatinine is usually due to kidney failure, acute or chronic and treatment depends on the cause and severity of failure. Low creatinine is not dangerous unless it is due severe muscle disease. See these sites for more info.

Urea nitrogen level low, is at 6..what could cause this, should I worry? Creatine ratio is 8

Don't worry: I don't worry about low BUN levels. Rarely it could mean liver disease, but it has to be pretty advanced liver disease to cause BUN to drop, and you would definitely have symptoms (jaundice, abdominal swelling, extremities swelling, etc) ...Read more

Bun/creatine ratio is 24.was fasting and hydrated. creatine alone is 0.73 just slightly low. have liver disease. why ratio high?

Bun/creatine ratio is 24.was fasting and hydrated. creatine alone is 0.73 just slightly low. have liver disease. why ratio high?

BUN Cr. Ratio: is useful in the differential diagnosis of acute or chronic renal disease. Reduced renal perfusion, e.g., congestive heart failure, or recent onset of urinary tract obstruction will result in an increase in BUN/Creatinine ratio. Increased urea formation also results in an increase in the ratio, e.g., gastrointestinal bleeding, trauma, etc. When there decreased urea in liver disease, ratio is low. ...Read more

Good for you: This is what happens when a lawyer-shy medical community is forced to look at labs apart from people. This is a normal creatinine for a 30 year old man with muscle. Mine is higher. When I was lifting weights daily, it ran 1.6-1.8. I'm sorry you had to go through the workup. ...Read more

Regarding blood test-what is co2 is high, creatine is high, egfr is low, bun/creat ratio high?

Lab results: The lab results you mention, low creatinine high and egfr is low are consistent with a person with chronic kidney disease. The co2 in chronic kidney disease is not high and can be low. The high bun-creatinine ratio is suggestive of a dehydrated state. Please provide the actual numbers of the lab values you stated for a better answer. ...Read more

Had blood work done. My creatine was 1/15 which is a bit high according to the range.  And my alkaline phosphatase was 36, which was a tad low. Worry?

Stop worrying: Keep taking your high blood pressure medicine. This trivial elevation in creatinine is likely to be from the damage to your kidney arteries from before you started managing your hypertension. Stay compliant and it won't get worse. Low alk phos means nothing. Keep staying on top f your health -- it's a good thing. ...Read more
