Diseases That Cause Low Creatinine Levels
See below: Addison's disease is a state of low cortisol or hypocortisolism. In addition to cortsiol, the adrenal galnd also produces a very important hormone called aldosterone. The latter is responsible for reabsorbing sodium from the urine in exchange for potassium. If such hormone is not produced in sufficient quantity (either isolated or in conjunction with cortisol), potassium levels go up. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have low creatinine, high liver enzymes, low transferrin, high ferritin, low neutrophils and high lymphocytes. what could cause this combination?
Labs: Please forgive my frankness. Labs mean little in isolation. You're already carrying the diagnosis of adrneal insufficiency and Hashimoto's; I'm concerned you have Schmidt's. The iron picture concerns me for ongoing chronic inflammation somewhere, not your Hsahimoto's; low creatinine's not a worry and just how high / low your WBC's are is the key -- these fluctuate wildly from hour to hour. ...Read more
Is it possible to have high creatinine, high blood urea nitrogen and high potassium levels simultaneously?
Absolutely yes: This is exactly what is seen with kidney (renal) failure. I am not making a diagnosis on this information alone. I can only advise strongly that anyone with elevation in bun, cr and potassium, as listed above, should see his/her physician immediately. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What condition(s) causes someone to have high total serum protein, high albumin, normal globulin and high total calcium levels?
Dehydration.: There are no diseases that specifically increase albumin. Therefore in order to get an elevated concentration there must be a decrease in the amount of water in the system. This would also account for the normal globulin. Calcium is bound to Albumin so that elevated Albumin will elevate your calcium levels as well. ...Read more
Few mechanisms: 1. Low intake in food 2. Loss in secretions- urine, gastrointestinal-vomitus and stool, sweat 3.Increased traslocation of k in to the cells in certain conditions eg. Insulin excess, mineralocorticoid( aldosterone - a hormone secreted by adrenal gld.) excess are associated with low potassium.There is a genetically acquired condition called periodic hypokalemic syndrome characterized by low k level. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Cardiac problems: the most feared and morbid complication is a cardiac arrhythmia which could be fatal. This is usually caused by an acute rise in potassium level. The body may adapt to a slow chronic rise and therefore a treatment plan should be dictated by your doctor who would follow the level closely. ...Read more
Are there and kidney diseases that cause chronically low potassium? Even with normal bun and creatine?
Yes. : They lesions or diseases often are accompanied by high bp. There are kidney tubule defects or hormonal disturbances related to the adrenal gland function that can cause low potassium yet lab testing show normal kidney function in terms of clearance. Also medications and herbal supplements (including even exotic type of tea, licorice, or some tobaccos) can cause potassium disturbances. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Glucosuria: Glucosuria - glucose in the urine. If blood glucose is normal & kidneys are functioning appropriately the urine usually contains no glucose. An uncommon and unconcerning inherited condition called renal glucosuria spills glucose into urinr. A new group of medications mimics this inherited condition. Fanconi's syndrome also has glucosuria, many different things can cause this syndrome. See a doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What causes high urine sodium and normal blood sodium levels, and would such levels be related to recurrent episodes of hypokalemia?
Diet: If you eat more sodium, you pee more of it out. If you drink less water, there is less in which to dissolve whatever sodium you have may taken in. Don't look for a deeper meaning here. ...Read more
Not paradoxical: The problem is that copper can't get out of certain cells. The reason for ceruloplasmin being low is under study; since it carries copper, this metal also tends to be low. Checking serum copper and serum ceruloplasmin as a screen for wilson's misses up to a quarter of cases, especially if the person is already sick with anything. ...Read more
Can metabolic research supplements raise liver levels, sugar levels and cause thyroid levels to be out of whack?
Ingredients: Since the FDA doesn't usually study supplements, we can't know their ingredients or side effects,but it is known that some supplements or herbs can have adverse effects on various organs. Show the supplement To your pharmacist who may be able to give you more helpful information. ...Read more
Unlikely: No way to test, however the cell wall pumps work against the external gradient, so unlikely they would be able to work extra hard against the range where they should maintain homeostasis. ...Read more
Could low prolactin levels in a male cause his testosterone levels to be too high? (since high prolactin causes low t)
No to both: Spot cortisol levels are of limited usefulness. Nobody really knows what to make of C-reactive protein except in a few special cases anyway. ...Read more
