High microalbumin and microalbumin/creatinine lab results with good b.P. And kidney function. Why high?

High microalbumin and microalbumin/creatinine lab results with good b.P. And kidney function.  Why high?

High microablumin: Your microalbumin/creatinine being high signifies that you have proteinuria. See a nephrologist to have a 24 hour urine collection for creatinine clearance and protein to see how much protein you have in your urine for 24 hours and to see what your kidney function is. Blood work will be needed as well to diagnose the cause of your proteinuria. Go to a nephrologist to answer your question. ...Read more

Mri (Definition)

Mri or magnetic resonance imaging is one of the more recently developed imaging modalities available to physicians. It uses powerful magnets to generate images. There is no ionizing radiation which is a major advantage over many other modalities. Mri is the best imaging exam that we have for most soft tissue and joint related problems. There are radiologists ...Read more

Which etiology results in an elevated bun level with a normal serum creatinine level?

Which etiology results in an elevated bun level with a normal serum creatinine level?

Multiple causes: BUN is a breakdown of ingested protein, but becomes elevated compared to creatine, in cases of increased catabolism (breakdown). Such things as a high protein diet, use of some steroids, some infections, or volume depletion may commonly raise BUN levels. In a hospital setting, tube feeding, tpn, GI bleeding, infections, decreased flow to the kidneys, and use of steroids are frequent contributors. ...Read more

What results in an elevated bun level with a normal serum creatinine?

See below: An elevated BUN with normal creatinine occurs most commonly in dehydrated individuals and is not a sign of kidney damage.It may also occur in in certain other conditions like bleeding in the intestines, artificial nutrition intravenously of Amino Acids and use of steroids. ...Read more

Vitamin d was 15.6 ng/ml and normal calcium high in pth and alkaline phosphatase serum level?

Vitamin d was 15.6 ng/ml and normal calcium high in pth and alkaline phosphatase serum level?

Replace vitamin d: Vitamin d deficiency is very common. You need vitamin d to absorb calcium from the intestines. When you don't have enough vitamin d, in order to keep your blood calcium levels normal, your make more PTH to pull calcium from the bones and that raises the alkaline phosphatase. Replacing vitamin d should normalize all the tests. ...Read more

Stop worrying: Low creatinine is never a health concern. Reference ranges are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside on either end. The ratio can be up if you're a little thirsty or ate a protein-rich meal lately. ...Read more

At what serum creatinine and blood urea level dialysis should start?

At what serum creatinine and blood urea level dialysis should start?

Onset of dialysis: There are no set levels for BUN and creatinine (c) to start dialysis. The onset of dialysis is determined by a 24 hour urine collection for c clearance. If the patient is a diabetic, dialysis usually starts at a c clearance of 15 ml/min or less. If the patient is a non-diabetic, dialysis starts at a c clearance of. ...Read more

My kidney function test show low levels of urea, 13.00 mg/dl.

My kidney function test show low levels of urea,  13.00 mg/dl.

Not a problem: The reference range for urea is the level for most folks who are not obviously sick. Low serum urea is never a problem. If you're obviously sick with something else, it may provide a clue -- but probably not. I hope you're not restricting dietary protein for some reason. "treat the person, not the numbers" -- but i'm glad you're asking and remaining proactive. ...Read more

I had a spot on adrenal gland, blood work results were high aspartate aminotransferase level, low phosphate level and high platelet mean volume. help.

I had a spot on adrenal gland, blood work results were high aspartate aminotransferase level, low phosphate level and high platelet mean volume. help.

Test results: You are analyzing your test results and getting panicky. Relax. Talk to your doctor, who is in the best position to connect the dots. A "spot" on the adrenal may be nothing and the other test results may not be significant either. Test results need to be interpreted in the context of your symptoms and physical exam, and how much outside the normal range. ...Read more

High bun and bun/creatinine ratio results so bad kidneys?

Most of time: Generally high BUN and creatinine go hand in hand in bad kidneys(chronic kidney disease)., and bun/creat ratio is 10-15 to 1 , however if ratio >20 may indicate superimposed second cause like dehydration or bleeding in gut. ...Read more

My lab results show high levels of protein in urine 27 mg, urine creatinine 316.3 mg but levels of protein/creatinine ratio 90 mg. What does it mean?

Ur Protein/Cr ratio: The urine protein to urine creatinine ratio is an estimate of the 24hr urine protein. It is less cumbersome and quick. A urine protein to creatinine ratio of 0.15 or less would be consdered normal. For example urine protein of 30 and urine creatinine of 300 would be a upc of 0.1. ...Read more

Why does my test show normal level of LDL and triglyceride but elevated level of hdl?

Why does my test show normal level of LDL and triglyceride but elevated level of hdl?

That' a good thing: The standard lipid panel measures levels of blood cholesterol and triglycerides (tg). These lipids are carried in the circulation by various lipoprotein particles. Tg is used to estimate vldl concentration, while the cholesterol carried in LDL and HDL (ldl-c and hdl-c) is used to estimate LDL and HDL particle concentrations. High HDL is commonly associated with lower heart disease risk. ...Read more

How to reduce serum creatinine and blood urea level for 62 yr old male

right now the readings are:

serum creatinine  --->  2.1

High creatinine: You need to see a nephroloigist (n) for a history, physical examination and lab studies. You need a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance and protein determination. You also need more blood work and a renal ultrasound to see the size and morphology of your kidneys. If you have some obstruction of your urinary tract, lowering of you elevated levels may be possible. See a n for more infoirmation. ...Read more
