My creatinine level is 2.9 and uric acid 11.24 if I drink more water there is any prblm?

Only water retaintio: Poor renal function may cause sodium and water retention, but in general is better to drink a lot of water and cut on sodium. It will prevent kidney stones if you know the cause of renal problem, more suggestions on diet (low purine or uric acid for instance) can be made.

I took a drug screen and it came back diluted. I did not tamper with the test by drinking a lot of water and wondered if my creatinine levels are low and if so what can I do to increase the levels in my urine.?

I took a drug screen and it came back diluted. I did not tamper with the test by drinking a lot of water and wondered if my creatinine levels are low and if so what can I do to increase the levels in my urine.?

See your pcp: Verifying that a urine sample is "human urine" includes checking the temperature, ph, specific gravity and concentration of creatinine. Disease states can cause an exceptionally low creatinine level so having your pcp do further tests is of value. The creatinine concentration tested for is rather wide and permits a quite low level as normal. So if you are lower it is worth looking into.

Will my creatinine level raise from taking anabolic steroids? And will drinking lots of water bring it down for my drug screen that uses urine dilute

Will my creatinine level raise from taking anabolic steroids? And will drinking lots of water bring it down for my drug screen that uses urine dilute

Both unlikely. . .: It's unlikely that anabolic steroids will affect your creatinine level, a measure of kidney function. Drinking water may decrease blood urea nitrogen (BUN) but not creatinine. Different drug screens test for different things. Most employers check for opioid abuse, not anabolic use, unlike sporting oversight groups. Unfortunately, there's no way to get stuff out of your system any faster or hide it

Creatinine 1.4, GFR 84, BUN 9 and others normal.4mm stone in right kidney. Am I suffering from ckd? How much water should I drink?

Mild disease: You can drink as much water as you like. Drink enough so that your urine is watery. If you have high blood pressure or diabetes, make sure you treat it properly.

Hypochondria abt getting CKD as I am always dehydrated&have dry mouth n tongue. RFT (sr creatinine, NA, K), urine analysis normal. I drink 2 lt water

Hypochondriasis: I commend you for your insight being Hypochondriac about getting CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease) even though RFT (Creatinine, NA, K), and urine analysis are Normal. Feeling “always dehydrated”, .while drinking 2 liter water indicates marked anxiety, rationalization and misinterpretation of Normal Kidneys.

Normal values.: Both values are normal. In addition, exercising will increase creatinine levels. Diet will have not effect. Stop worrying. Have it rechecked in 3 months. If still normal, have a nice life.

Is it normal to have high albumin levels even if you drink a gallon of water a day and are on a vegetarian diet?

Is it normal to have high albumin levels even if you drink a gallon of water a day and are on a vegetarian diet?

Unlikely: A serum albumin test measures the amount of protein in the clear liquid portion of your blood. Albumin is a protein made by the liver; the test is often used to evaluate liver function, nutritional status and other conditions. Under (not over) hydration would more likely affect albumin; vegetarian diets can/should be completely adequate and not usually associated with low albumin. Hope this helps

I have a high level of specific gravity in my urine...I keep drinking water but I can't get it down! Why is this?

I have a high level of specific gravity in my urine...I keep drinking water but I can't get it down! Why is this?

Meds & supplements?: If you are not taking any medications or supplements / herbals / protein, then you should be evaluated by a nephrologist. If any of the above, they may be contributing to elevated sg (via elimination in urine).

Tests, tests, tests: Tests results always have to be interpreted in a context. When they measure the temperature of the winner of the Boston Marathon 2 yrs ago it was over106 F. Was he very ill? NO! He had been using his bodies muscles at full output for over 2 hrs straight. The heat generated raised his body temp a lot and he soon cooled off. You hv to talk with yr doc or make a virtual consult.

Can drinking carbonated water cause elevated CO2 in the blood? Elevated (31 to 33) levels for several months.

Can drinking carbonated water cause elevated CO2 in the blood? Elevated (31 to 33) levels for several months.

Not from soda: Drinking carbonated beverages does not raise CO2 in blood. Elevated levels of CO2 indicate other metabolic problems. It may also be that a particular individual has a different "set point" but this would be a diagnosis that should come only after careful medical consultation.

I had lab work done. My blood sugar level can back high. Was fasting blood work & didn't drink any water, would that cause the sugar level to be high?

I had lab work done. My blood sugar level can back high. Was fasting blood work & didn't drink any water, would that cause the sugar level to be high?

High blood sugar tes: Test result probably not altered by not drinking water for a short time. Double check the fasting blood sugar test and ask for the test that gives blood sugar average over the last three months or so, called HgAc1 to try to rule out diabetes.

Type 1 blood sugar, how high does it goes, before I can't get my remicade (infliximab) injection? Patient has been drinking a lot of water, eat small beef stick to bring it down, her suger level.

Type 1 blood sugar, how high does it goes, before I can't get my remicade (infliximab) injection? Patient has been drinking a lot of water, eat small beef stick to bring it down, her suger level.

If: If you have type 1 diabetes, why not take a dose of fast acting insulin? Humalog, apidra, (insulin glulisine) and NovoLog work within 15 minutes to start lowering the sugar. I do not know of any clear glucose level at which you could not get remicade. Makes little sense why there would be since glucose can vary with Insulin and over hours. Your rheumatologist may not be comfortable dosing your Remicade though if your sugar is high. Contrary to popular belief, drinking water will not lower your sugar. And beef sticks sure don't.

I bloat & get stomach pains no matter what I eat or drink, even tea & water. My lipase levels were high, 352. What could cause this? Is it all related

I bloat & get stomach pains no matter what I eat or drink, even tea & water. My lipase levels were high, 352. What could cause this? Is it all related

Two separate issues: The bloating and gas may very well be unrelated to your elevated lipase (two separate issues). Bloating and gas may be due to celiac disease or ibs related. An elevated lipase level may be pancreatic in origin (pancreatitis) but may also have other non-pancreatic sources. Evaluation by a gastroenterologist would be appropriate.
