Creatinine Levels After Heart Attack
If creatinine is 1.8 can angio and stenting be done or is it unsafe?What is the safest level of creatinine if person had a heart attack 15 days ago?
HIgh creatinine : With a creatinine (c) of 1.8 mg/dl, you have some chronic kidney disease (ckd). There is some potential for you to have some temporary impairment of your kidney function (kf) due to the dye used in the angio procedure. Discuss your c level with your cardiologist to see how you should proceed and with what precautions. Any impairment of your kf will probably be temporary, if it occurs. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My mother had a heart attack on friday. Can that cause an elevated creatinine level? She also went into dka, could that cause it?
No surprise: Not knowing what her creatinine is at usual baseline, years of diabetes can damage kidneys so this could be the result of her diabetes. She is very ill. Without knowing details, poor blood circulation because of heart attack and DKA could cause kidney damage that can sometimes improve, tho i don't know your mom's case. Dehydration cause could improve with hydration. Hope she quickly recovers. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
After symptoms indicative of heart attack, my toponin I level was .147. But my heart catheter revealed strong heart, no plque. I'm confused.
Normal,then elevated: Cardiac markers including ckmb and troponins measure damage to the heart muscle which occurs in a heart attack - the damaged/dying muscle will leak these into the serum which can be measured as blood tests. They start off "negative" - in the reference range - and then 4-6 hrs after the start of the heart attack they begin to rise - will eventually peak and over several days return to normal. ...Read more
I had undergone an angioplasty and stent after I had a mild heart attack in aug 2007. Why long should I feel low energy level.?
Not this long.: If the angioplasty and stenting were successful and it was truly a minor mi, you should have your strength back by now. You may be de-conditioned or there is some degree of heart failure following the mi or another unrelated cause for your lack of energy. Please follow up with your cardiologist! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My cousin had a heart attack, diabetic , non alcoholic and non smoker, in ccu for the last 8 days, creatinine and blood gas level not coming down, on vent?
Any heart problem: Troponin is an enzyme released by damaged heart muscle. While the major cause is a heart attack, and large increases are usually due to this, almost any condition affecting the heart can cause small increases. Viral infections of the heart, pulmonary embolus or medial procedures such as angioplasty often result in increases of troponin. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
