My serum creatinine is 1.4 .Should i take any precaution for that?

You need a doctor: Depending on your body habitus, how much muscle mass you have, a creatinine of 1.4 could represent a loss of kidney function. You need to be followed by a doctor and maybe nephrologist to determine if their is loss of kidney function and what is the likely cause. No matter what the cause of the loss of kidney function you need to stop smoking, watch your blood pressure and blood sugar. ...Read more

Keep following it: That is high for a female of your age, but some renal damage is expected in diabetes after 30 years. This high value may be a heads-up indicating (mild, at this level) damage.

See below: Evaluating lab results without knowing medical history and medications is imprecise. Creatinine 1.4 may or may not indicate mild renal impairment. More precise test is estimated GFR. Trace albumin may indicate microvascular changes in glomeruli, especially if diabetic. Uric acid 7.7 is slightly elevated>>Rx= wt.loss, reduce alcohol, increase low fat dairy, reduce meat, increase complex carbs ...Read more

Having said that, your creatinine, even for a women, may not be abnormal if you are muscular, eat meat, and are physically active.

My serum creatinine level is 1.4 mg/dl and egfr is 61. What do these results indicate?

Depends who you are: I'm well-muscled and when I was lifting weights every day, my creatinine ran 1.6-1.8. If on the other hand you're a petite lady or one of the couch potatoes on which our "reference ranges" are based, this is whispernig a concern about possible very mildly compromised kidney function. There's nothing you can do right now except stay fit and maybe avoid a lot of salt. Follow-up with a repeat test. ...Read more

What do you suggest if my serum creatinine level is 1.4 mg/dl and egfr is 61. what does it indicate?

The eGFR: is estimated glomerular filtration rate, a measure of how well the kidneys are working. 61 is a normal value. Creatinine is produced by muscle at a relatively stable rate, and excreted unaltered by the kidneys, so it also is a proxy for kidney function. It is also related to muscle mass. 1.4 may or may not be a little high depending on your level of muscle mass. Speak with your doc about it. ...Read more

My father age 49 got his blood test done and has been fasting since 20 days for 16 hous every day he got creatinine 1.4 mg/dL is it normal?

Renal Insufficiency: He is not fasting if he is eating eight hours in the 24 hour period. He will always have food in his system. Second, as his physician, I am sure, is telling him he has renal insufficiency and the cause of the problem MUST first be identified. It is not normal to have a creatinine of 1.4. This must be investigated. ...Read more

Dehydration?: Sounds like dehydration (if no kidney disease) as we grow younger, we cannot rely on our thirst, and have to drink by the clock... Our osmotic receptors get old before we do. ...Read more
