Creatinine Levels In Kidney Transplant Patients
I am a kidney transplant patient. My creatine has always been between 1.4 - 1.8 is this a normal level?
Not normal: While it isn't a "normal" serum creatinine (or perfect kidney function) that is to be expected. It is very rare that a transplant recipient with a single kidney obtains the same level of function as a healthy person with two normal kidneys. That being said, if you've had your transplant for 5 or more years and no change in function... Then you are doing great. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
In medicine: a transfer from one body or body part to another of an organ (liver, heart, lung, kidney, pancreas bowel) or tissue (hand, face, hair). The immune system fights foreign invaders (like infections) so it will reject transplants from other people (allotransplants) because they look like infections. So transplants usually require drugs to ...Read more
No precise answer: The creatinine test is a surrogate for the more precise measurement of kidney function called gfr--glomerular filtration rate. The creatinine can vary based on donor and recipient gender, age and size, as well as some medical conditions most recipients with very good kidney function have a GFR between 40-70 cc/min and a serum creatinine between 1-2 mg/dl. ...Read more
My motherinlaw had kidney transplant 2days ago,she is well and walking around hospital. today doc said her creatinine level is 150, what does it mean?
Creatinine 150 or: Was her 2-day post-transplant creatinine "150" or 1.50 mg/dl; creatinine of 150 mg/dl is the high number I have never seen, so, is it a mistake in decimal?; 1.5 mg/dl indicates her newly transplanted kidney is working reasonably well, but too early to say. I wish she will do well to take the new kidney well as being life-saving. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I am a kidney transplant patient. My doctor prescribe Pabapentin 300 2X per day for my neuropathic pain. Should I take this?
Gabapentin: You mean Gabapentin? If yes, it is safe to take it.There is no major interaction with commonly used immunosuppressive meds (such as Prograf, cellcept, and Prednisone ).The dosage is dependent on your level of kidney function. If your Creatinine is elevated, you have to start with lower dose since it causes side effects in the dosage you are prescribed (such as irritability and jerky arm movements) ...Read more

Kidneys anatomically require connection to an artery for blood supply, a vein for blood drainage and the bladder for urine outflow. In a transplant a healthy kidney is disconnected from its usual attachments and moved to a new location with those 3 requirements (artery, vein, bladder). This may be an auto-txp - somewhere else in your own body; or an allo-txp -from ...Read more
The kidneys are paired organs that lie on either side of the vertebral column. Part of their critical functions include the excretion of urine and removal of nitrogenous wastes products from the blood. They regulate acid-base, electrolyte, fluid balance and blood pressure. Through hormonal signals, the kidneys control the ...Read more
