Creatinine 214 7
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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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?
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
Yes.: Minor fluctuations are completely normal.Get a more detailed answer ›
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.

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
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
