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?

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

Alkaline Phosphatase (Definition)

The normal range is 20 to 140 iu/l.[12] high levels can indicate active bone formation occurring as alp is a byproduct of osteoblast activity (such as the case in paget's disease of bone). Levels are also elevated in people with untreated celiac ...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

Test result for Alk Phosphatase below standard range. Others (total bilirubin, bun, albumin, total protein) also low. What could this mean? Next step?

See your clinician: There may be nothing "wrong" with you. Note that no test is perfectly accurate. Also, if you're at very low risk for a disease, an abnormal result is less likely to be true. You need to sit down with a clinician to review your tests in light of your overall personal & family medical history, physical findings, & health goals. Next steps include further tests, & watch & wait. Hope that helps. ...Read more
