Creatine In Urine
Positive ANA, Positive Smith antibodies, protein in urine 100, creatine in urine 186. Should I be worried?
Lupus: Anti Smith antibodies are very specific for SLE. They can be positive in other autoimmune diseases including mixed connective tissue disease and scleroderma. A positive ANA especially one with homogenous staining is also associated with SLE but can be positive in other diseases. SLE can be associated with kidney disease with protein in the urine. 100 is normal. No kidney disease. ...Read more
Urine is the product of the kidneys, which is produced to eliminate the waste products of metabolism, manage body fluid balance, &maintain acid-base balance. The blood is first filtered by the kidneys, and the composition of the resulting fluid is then altered depending on the body's needs. It is composed of mostly water, and breakdown products from blood cells impart ...Read more
Can high calcium and potassium in blood taken 4 days after contrast CT scan be caused by the contrast? Normal creatine and urine test
Yes: Newer contrast today withnon-ionic iodonated contrast has less potential for side effects compared to the older generation of contrast. However, contrast-induced nephropathy can occur within anywhere from 1-5 days, with incidence of 0-40% depending on your risk factors, such as pre-existing diabetes, metformin usage. Potassium and calcium levels can increase due to decreased kidney function. ...Read more

What does albumin and creatine in the urine mean? Albumin 1.5mg. Creatine 76 mg. I'm diabetic 331 lipid, alk phos high, a1c 13.5
Many health issues: An early sign of diabetic kidney damage is a "leak" of protein (albumin) into the urine, called the albumin/creat ratio. The values you give do not appear to be high, but you need to see your doctor, for this as well as other issues, including your very poor blood sugar control (A1C 13.5), which is damaging your kidneys, eyes, driving up your lipids and putting you at high risk of heart attack. ...Read more
Should I be concerned if my creatinine level in blood is 1.29 mg/dl and creatine level in urine is 65.5 mg/24 hours? I have a hypertension condition and take one nyphedipine pill and one losartan pill per day. I have a severe back pain.
Yes. You should be.:
Although your creatinine level in blood is nit alarmingly high but elevated creatinine is a sensitive marker of kidney bit doing well. The high blood pressure is one of the main reasons for the kidney damage and the blood pressure should be appropriately controlled. You need to check if your urine has proteins in it.
Also make sure that you don't take too many nsaids as they damage the kidneys. ...Read more

He needs to be evaluated & followed by his nephrologist (kidney specialist) who will recommend medications to control risk factors & prepare him for dialysis/transplant if condition worsens. ...Read more
Diagnostic test: A 24-hour urine collection is a simple diagnostic procedure that measures the components of urine. The test is noninvasive (the skin is not pierced), and is used to assess kidney (renal) function. Specifically the amount of creatinine excreted is measured to get an estimate of the glomerular filtration rate (gfr). ...Read more

May get follow-up: This is a way of estimating how much protein is being lost via the kidneys on a spot urine, without using a 24 hour check. This is a wee bit high. If you have diabetes, this might be a reason for a follow-up study; if there's nothing else to suggest kidney disease and you're not diabetic, your physician may simply note it for future reference. ...Read more
Urine chemistry. MA RANDOM URINE 4.7H ref rng<1.9 mg/dl Comments. =1= results is expressed in ug microalbumim/mg creatine help interpret this.
Kidney function: Microalbumin is a test used to measure the progression of kidney damage in patients who are at risk. Ex. Patients with diabetes, high blood pressure. In patients with normal kidneys, albumin is kept inside the body. If its found in the urine, it means the kidney is damaged and can't hold the albumin in. Taking meds like advil and ibuprofen hurt your kidneys as well. Keep your pressure controlled ...Read more

Isn't it impossible for someone to have end stage renal failure with consistently normal bun and creatine blood levels and only protien in urine?
Most likely yes: The diagnosis depends on multiple factors including the likelihood of improvement with treatment. If there can be no improvement and there is severe protienuria due to glomerular malfunction, it is possible to be labeled end-stage before a significant change in creatinine or BUN has occurred. ...Read more
Could vaginal discharge contaminate a 24 hr urine test to give 0.42g of protein? Creatine tests normal.
Not significantly: Most OB's order 24 hour urine in pregnant hypertensivie patients and almost all pregnant patients have leukorrhea (pregnancy discharge). It is primarily mucous and not loaded with protein. While it might contribute a small amount, it still wouldn't matter because the cutoffs we use for preeclampsia are all based on pregnant women with similar discharge. ...Read more
