Creatinine Lab Values
My alk phosp test came back at 137 range is 50to136 and creatinine was 0.8 range is 0.5to1.2 should I have concerns, all other labs were fine.
Probably normal: It is perfectly normal for 5% of the population to be a bit outside of the "normal" lab values. Unless you are far outside of the norms or know that your values are changing significantly over time there is little to worry about. It is reasonable to recheck mildly abnormal labs in a few months. That value may be your normal value and not indicative of any problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
In Sep my eGFR was 70 with creatinine of .88, started Spiro in Jan, now numbers are 49 eGFR and 1.2 cr. Dose cut in half, labs the same. Should I worry?
Rise of creatinine: You should see a nephrologist (N) to find the cause of your acute rise of creatinine (C). It may be due to causes other than Sprio (S). Causes of acute rises of C are nephrotoxic agents and obstruction, among others. See a N to get an answer to your question. Good luck. ...Read more
Can Ccr be 9.7 ml/min if S.Creatinine is just 2.37 mg/dl? S. Cr is consistent for 3 yrs. Does that mean I need dialysis, or it may be lab error?
Subscientific: This pathologist doesn't believe in the "estimated GFR's" from spot creatinines. The idea of dialyzing somebody with a creatinine 2.3 is bolt stupid. I'll bet your nephrologist -- if you've even been referred -- will tell you the same thing. Just watch your diabetes and your hypertension and hopefully we can keep this under control. ...Read more
Creatinine level standing at 1.20. The laboratory reference value normal as less than 1.2. Does 1.2 and 1.20 mean the same.. Are they equvalent..
Creatinine: Has normal levels from each lab, but less than 1.2 is a common level. 1.2. And 1.20 and 1.2000000 is the same. ...Read more
Creatinine increased .16 from .89 to 1.05. BUN went from 12 to 10. All other labs great.60 year old 200 lbs work out 5 days a week.Is this CKD or so?
My dates-creatinine/egfr(epi)/egfr(mdrd) are: 9/10-.93/70/63, 9/11-1.00/64/58, 7/12-1.24/48/45*, and 8/12-1.06/59/54. *results from diff lab. What action should be pursued? Should i be concerned?
EGFR limitations: You seem to be concerned with your varying estimated GFR (egfr) levels. You lab data shows only creatinine (levels). To find out your actual kidney function see a nephrologist (n) and have a 24 hour urine collection for a c clearance. This will give you your actual level of renal function, not an estimate. A n will let you know if you should or should not be worried about your kidney function. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
