See below: 1. Could be lab error- repeat 2. If 'real' avoid high potassium containg foods- citrus, bananas, potato skins, and 'low salt/sodium foods' that use potassium salts instead 3. Review your meds with md as some can raise potassium- ace inhibitors, arbs, beta-blockers, spironolactone like meds. ...Read more

My egfr is 46 and creatinine of 1.3, a year ago my egfr was 60 and creatinine was 1.2. Should i be worried?

My egfr is 46 and creatinine of 1.3, a year ago my egfr was 60 and creatinine was 1.2. Should i be worried?

24 hour urine: The GFR is only an estimation of kidney function based on creatinine, age, and race. But it is less reliable with normal or nearly normal kidney function and in patients with a lot or little muscle mass. The most reliable measurement of kidney function would be a creatinine clearance based on a 24 hour urine collection. You could talk to your doctor about getting this test if there is concern. ...Read more

Estimated GFR: Your egfr means "estimated" glomerular filtration rate. The key word here is "estimated". It seems unusual that a .1 increase of creatinine (c) could lower your egfr by over 20%. See a nephrologist and get a 24 hour urine for c clearance and protein and get an exact result of your gfr, rather than an estimated one. You may be surprised by the answer. ...Read more

Good morning. I recently had a CT scan performed. As part of the preliminary test, they did a creatinine screen. My level was 1.24 and egfr of > 60.

Good morning.  I recently had a CT scan performed. As part of the preliminary test, they did a creatinine screen.  My level was 1.24 and egfr of > 60.

Good for you: I am a pathologist and lab specialist. Serum creatinine has a lot to do with muscle mass. When I was lifting weights every day, mine ran 1.6 to 1.8. The GFR's estimated from spot creatinines are subscience and even include a racial adjustment "because black people are more muscular." It is bogus. Be grateful for good health. ...Read more
