What happens when creatinine level is higher than normal range?

What happens when creatinine level is higher than normal range?

It depends : Muscular people have higher creatinine levels. When I was lifting weights semi-seriously, mine ran 1.7 or so. It's fine. Much of the current obsession with minimally increased creatinine levels reflects medico legal concerns that may require adjusting drug doses. If your BUN is up, your urinalysis abnormal, or your ability to concentrate your urine is poor, you might have real kidney disease. ...Read more

What does it mean if my CREATININE LEVEL is always 118 or 119 uMOL/L? The normal range is 50-120. For the 8th time, my CREA is always 119.

Could just be you: Reference ranges are set for couch-potatoes and if you're a well-muscled man, you'll have creatinine high, often above the "normal". And ranges are set arbitrarily to have a few percent of healthies outside on either end. Keep managing your hypertension and don't worry so much about creatinine. ...Read more

Last September 15, my CREATININE is 81.54 uMOL/L. The normal range is 50.0--120.0. This November 9, my CREATININE LEVEL is 124.53. Unsafe?

Here are some ...: Some fluctuation in the report of a test result may fluctuate reflecting the time of testing and exercise; I would not overly concern such with no practical need to often repeat testing it as long as you've been living healthy and well. Besides, your profile seems suggesting some personal trait of obsession, which needs to be modified & balanced so to live a longer happier life. Of course, ask Doc ...Read more

What is the most common cause of the creatinine and bun to be in the normal range and the GFR to be a low 51?

Inconsistent: By definition, creatinine is not normal if the GFR is 51. GFR is calculated from serum creatinine value and if the GFR is below 90, that equates to higher creatinine than would be normal for that person. ...Read more

If my serum creatinine increased but within normal range is it certain i will develope ckd?Im so worried to have ckd.

Stop worrying: Jeff, someone has perhaps misled you. Everyone will at some time in his/her life will have creatinine increase -- it always happens at puberty, especially in males, and it happens to any young man who starts a fitness program. These are not thoughts that you should be having -- life's hard enough without this. Please talk frankly with a competent, caring physician. ...Read more

Serum Creatinine 0.98 serum jaffe method.last month it was 1.2 but in different lab. Is jaffe standard method and what is normal range??

Labs vary: Even different instruments both running the Jaffe will often produce different results. For creatinine, this is famous. And you may have put on a bit more muscle in the interim. "Reference range" varies from lab to lab as well, and it's by no means the same as "healthy range" -- it's set so that several percent of healthies fall outside on either end. A creatinine of 1.2 is no concern for a guy. ...Read more

Glomerular hyperfiltration? My creatinine clearance results was 164ml/min with normal range betw. 70 and 130.Is that glomer. Hyperfiltration?Causes?

Stop worrying: If this was an estimated creatinine clearance based on your serum creatinine, this is sub-science and there's no reason to think you are sick. The problems with these forumulas is showcased in part by a large adjustment for black people "because black people are more muscular than other people." hyperfiltration is a concern when there's clearly kidney disease. ...Read more

Follow it: Your creatinine is fine especially if you are physically fit. When I was lifting weights every day, mine ran 1.6 or even a bit higher. Your physician will probably repeat your SGPT off alcohol and and meds and if it is still up, run a few more labs to look for hepatitis virus, hemochromatosis, or Wilson's ...Read more
