Creatinine Serum Of 0 78
I am suffering from joints pain and swelling especially in knees from 3 years.
ESR — 24 mm 1st hr
Serum creatinine — 0.78
Uric acid — 4.4 m?
High creatinine : Before I can answer your question, I need to know your height and weight. If you are a tall person with a large amount of muscle mass, it is less serious than if you have less muscle mass. See a nephrologist to take a history to see if you have high BP or diabetes. You also need a renal ultrasound and a 24-hour urine collection to assess your renal function and to see if you have proteinuria. ...Read more
Serum creatinine: By itself, your serum creatinine (C) is within normal limits. C is dependent on age, sex, race and weight. As you did not mention any personal information, ask the physician (P) who ordered the test. I suspect that if there were a problem with your C level, the P would have told you and you have nothing to worry about. Good luck. ...Read more
Normal range: Yes, the creatinine is in the normal range for someone your age. However, creatinine isn't the best measure for kidney function. If you are concerned, you can calculate a glomerular filtration rate (GFR) which is a better measure of renal impairment. The GFR in a young healthy person should be > 90ml/min, but GFR calculators account for gender, race, age and weight to give a more accurate measure. ...Read more
I just had my SERUM CREATININE. The result is 119.15 uMOL/L. The reference is 50.0--120.0. Is this alarming? What's the cure to this?
Normal range: It is not alarming. It is just in the upper range of normal. It could be that you were just a bit dehydrated on the day you had your labs drawn. The best ways to protect the kidneys are to drink plenty of water, avoid excessive alcohol, salt and anti-inflammatory medications like ibuprofen. It is also very important that your blood pressure is well controlled and that you do not smoke. ...Read more
I'm so worried. My serum creatinine was .96mg/dl 3yrs ago. And its 1. 09mg/dl now. Is it very bad?22y/0 male. Exercising evryday 2 days before test.
Serum creatinin: Do not worry. That result this year is very close to the result 3 years ago. ...Read more
I'm very worried. My serum creatinine was .96mg/dl 3yrs ago. Now its 1.09. Is it bad?I'm exercising for1 week 2 days before my test. Male 22y/0. 70 kgs
No need to worry: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. However, the result of 1.09 is normal. If your muscle mass has increased from exercise, that would explain this apparent rise in creatinine. ...Read more
I'm 29 years old, 177cm height and 81kg weight. Don't have any chronic diseases. My serum creatinine value is 1.22 mg/dl (0.7-1.2 mg/dl). Is it normal?
Yes: This is fine, especially for a robust young man. "Reference range" is set to include most couch potatoes, but if you'll even fairly well muscled, you'll be above. When I was lifting every day I ran 1.6; a competitive bodybuilder runs 2.0 or more. ...Read more
What does it mean if my BUN is 22, BUN Creatinine 26 and creatinine serum is 0.86? I am a 54 yr old woman
All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, your creatinine is normal. Your BUN is slightly elevated and may be because you were fasting when the blood was drawn and were dehydrated from not drinking water.
For good health — Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more
M58, I am taking ground flax seed 40 gm a day, my serum creatinine has come down from 1.1 to 0.8. Is this healthy?
Fine: These numbers are fine, and are going in the right direction. You are still in the normal range and as stated are not rising to the of renal insufficiency. Best wishes. ...Read more
Is serum creatinine of 1.0 mg/dL fine for 57+ yr Indian female having height of 5.2 ft & weight 71 kg? Any advice for her?
My creatinine serum is 0.73 and I've been told this is "low"...should I be concerned? My BUN/creatinine was 23. Should I be concerned healthwise?
Okay,...: Serum creatinine reflects personal lean muscle mass; so, your lean muscle may be on low side. The bottom line is your personal functionality in managing the tasks & chores of daily living for survival, growth, and continuation. If adequate, leave it alone and live on; if not, go for a comprehensive evaluation & counseling. ...Read more
Serum creatinine 0.49mg/dL, 24h urine cr 22.1mg/dL & cr excretion 884mg, cr clearance 125.4mL/min, random urine cr 109,7mg/dL. Normal? If low, why?
Just ignore this: Labs are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside on either end. This could not be due to illness. Be thankful for a normal creatinine clearance and that your physician took time to check it. ...Read more
High value of creatinine clearance. Serum creatinine 0, 8mg/dl. Creat. Clearance 165ml/min. Normal value from 80 to130. What's the relevance of high value?
Don't worry: A high estimated GFR means nothing whateve except that the estimate has little to do with reality. The fad for estimating glomerular filtration rates in healthy people based on a correlation with serum creatinine is unscientific and has many pathologists and nephrologists unhappy. Ignore it. ...Read more
0.6 to 1.4 mg/dL: Creatinine is a product of muscle metabolism. Because women generally have less muscle mass than men, their values are lower. Because of increased volume during pregnancy, lower limits of normal may be 0.4 -0.5 mg/dl. As an individual ages, the muscle mass may decline therefore the serum creatinine values may not adequately reflect the underlying renal function. ...Read more
Diagnosis needed: Serum creatinine is affected by protein intake, gender, age, race, muscular build, and renal function. A rising creatinine is always of concern. "Normal" on lab tests is generally less than 1.2 mg/dl. Renal function can be estimated with a more complex formula or measured with a 24 h urine collection. See your internist for further evaluation. ...Read more
