Can ketosteril be used to lower the 150 creatinine level?

Can ketosteril be used to lower the 150 creatinine level?

Ketosteril use: Ketosteril (k) does have certain effects on lowering creatinine, but it still depends on the patients’ illness and physical conditions and patients should not rely on k only to prevent dialysis. The root cause of increased creatinine level is the damage of renal intrinsic cells and tissues and the decreased ability of the glomerular filtration. K cannot repair already damaged renal tissue. ...Read more

My motherinlaw had kidney transplant 2days ago,she is well and walking around hospital. today doc said her creatinine level is 150, what does it mean?

My motherinlaw had kidney transplant 2days ago,she is well and walking around hospital. today doc said her creatinine level is 150, what does it mean?

Creatinine 150 or: Was her 2-day post-transplant creatinine "150" or 1.50 mg/dl; creatinine of 150 mg/dl is the high number I have never seen, so, is it a mistake in decimal?; 1.5 mg/dl indicates her newly transplanted kidney is working reasonably well, but too early to say. I wish she will do well to take the new kidney well as being life-saving. ...Read more

Maybe (not) . . .: It depends. Don't you hate those answers? Creatinine is only a partial assessment of your kidney function. For complete interpretation, we also need your gender (female in your case, i presume), age, ethnicity & body weight. These values are then incorporated into the egfr which is a better measure of your kidney function. Most labs automatically calculate this so ask for result. Normal is 90-100+. ...Read more

Is creatinine 1.3 is normal?

Labs: whereas the lab falls out of "normal range"--- it needs to be evaluated further with a recheck, urinalysis and possibly even a 24 hour urine creatinine clearance. Might be normal for a muscular or large built 18year old (or affected by a large steak dinner/ medications) ...Read more
