I am told my Glomerular filtration Rate is 57.6. Does this indicate Kidney disease? Creatinine is 1.0 BUN is 20 total Protein is 7.0 I am 55 w/f

I am told my Glomerular filtration Rate is 57.6. Does this indicate Kidney disease? Creatinine is 1.0 BUN is 20 total Protein is 7.0 I am 55 w/f

GFR: Your Estimated filtration rate is borderline. This is not a problem itself. The important concern is whether disease exists that might be progressive. Serum creatinine of 1.0 is "normal". So is serum creatinine 1.1. However, creatinine relates to muscle mass. If you are small muscled as a. 55 yo woman, then creatinine of 1.1 or 1.0 may indicate some minor impairment in its excretion. ...Read more

Lab variability.: It's hard to put these numbers into context as you've added variance between labs. You'd need to have a few values drawn at the same lab to see what consistency (or not) your numbers have. The variability across labs makes these values difficult to reliably interpret. ...Read more

Suppose the level of creatanine of a patient goes up to seven but he is having normal flow of urine should he contact nefrologist or medine specialis?

Suppose  the level of creatanine of a patient goes up to seven but he is having normal flow of urine should he contact nefrologist or medine specialis?

ELEV. CREAT: Yes, a nephrologist is likely apropriate after blockage has been ruled out. It is difficult to tell wether your bladder is emptying at times if it is a slow process that is causing blockage. ...Read more

My creatinine is 0.7 and my crcl is 111.9; should I be worried about this?

No: That's normally especially for a young lady. You're in the normal range. As a pathologist, I have no use for these subscientific estimates of creatinine clearance. ('add 25% if you are african-american because african-americans are more muscular.') when i was lifting weights daily i ran 1.6-1-7 and today every bodybuilder is an instant kidney case. Common sense should rule. ...Read more

What can I do if my creatinine blood result is 0.7 is that good and what is it in reference to?

What can I do if my creatinine blood result is 0.7 is that good and what is it in reference to?

Depends: Normal serum creatinine ranges from 0.7- 1.5 mg /dl in many labs, however one should review the normal range in their lab report. 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.Your result is good.Review the lab report with md. ...Read more

For 3 weeks my creatinine result 1.7, second week 1.37 and third 1.63. I exercise everyday. Not mascular. What does it mean? I have elevated urc acid

Varying creatinine: I have a question, why is your physician checking your serum creatinine (c) levels so frequently? You are 32 years old and your c levels appear to be elevated. Do you have any chronic kidney disease? If not, variations of c can be caused by dehydration, among other things. I suggest you speak to your physician (p) and get the p input. He knows you best and can give you a meaningful answer. ...Read more

What means an elevated BUN to creatinine ratio of 24 if both BUN and Creatinine are individually normal? BUN: 17.7, Creat: 0,75. Take many fluids.Txs

Elevated ratio: Hi Oskcar. You lab levels are normal and your ratio is high due to your low creatinine level. If you had a high BUN-creatinine ratio that was abnormal due to dehydration, your serum sodium and chloride would be high. You did not mention those values in your test results. Were they elevated? If not, you need not worry, if they were, ingest more fluids to reduce them and lower your ratio. ...Read more

Units of the results: 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, Is the level of BUN 7 mg/dL and creatinine 0.71 mg/dL? if so there is no cause for concern. ...Read more

Creatinine 1.3 is it bad?

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 1.29 creatinine is high?

It depends: If you're a well-muscled or just a husky / big man, this is normal. When i was lifting weights every day, mine ran 1.6-1.7. You're a person, not a bunch of numbers. You'll even find labs that will give an adjustment for people of african descent "because black people are more muscular." this is subscience. Stop worrying. ...Read more
