Egfr Of 59 Low Creatinine Low Bun
I am told my Glomerular filtration Rate is 57.6. Does this indicate Kidney disease? Creatinine is 1.0 BUN is 20 total Protein is 7.0 I am 55 w/f
GFR: Your Estimated filtration rate is borderline. This is not a problem itself. The important concern is whether disease exists that might be progressive. Serum creatinine of 1.0 is "normal". So is serum creatinine 1.1. However, creatinine relates to muscle mass. If you are small muscled as a. 55 yo woman, then creatinine of 1.1 or 1.0 may indicate some minor impairment in its excretion. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My bun/creatinine ratio is low and my egfr non african american is low (57.4) the urine itself was normal but dark and cloudy. What's going on?
I'm not worried: This isn't science. The adjustment for race is there "because black people are more muscular than white people". BUN/creatinine ratio being low is never a problem if you feel even semi-well. Dr. F. has given you good advice. Just keep an eye on this and if your actual creatinine is up well above reference range for a time, get evaluated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had re-test for Kidney Function - 1.1 Creatinine, 21 BUN & eGFR 86 - Is 86 low for someone of 36 ?
Dpnt worry: You have relatively normal kidney function.Get a more detailed answer ›
How high?: 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, it would have been helpful to know the actual creatinine and eGFR values. If these are abnormal if would be prudent to consult a nehprologist so that a treatable entity is not overlooked. ...Read more

My 2007 med record says: glucose 104, bun 25, creatinine 1.5, bun/creat ratio 17, egfr 58. Any danger in any of those, i'm scared :-(
Of what?: This is from 2007, which is 6 years ago and therefore of limited significance. Newer results are needed. Your creatinine is very slightly high for someone your age, but may have been falsely elevated due to dehydration. Don't be afraid, go get more current results and discuss them w/your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Bun is 28, creatinine 1.16. Egfr 61. Healthy 35 yr old caucasian female. Only problem is benign fasciculations x1 year. Normal creat kinase. Why?
Stop worrying: I am going to assume that you feel well and are asking why your estimated GFR is lowish and your BUN a bit high. I like to eat protein and my BUN is always high. Are you athletic? When i was lifting daily my creatinine was 1.6-1.7; or a Motrin tablet or minimal kidney disease may be raising yours. I suggest repeat in a year and stop fretting over a number in the meantime. ...Read more
Would getting a UTI cause the kidney numbers like egfr, bun, and creatinine to change for the worse?
UTI and EGFR: Normally, uti's have no effect on gfr. If you have some obstrction (o) in your urinary outflow tract, your GFR can decrease until the o is resolved. What was the time interval between your GFR readings? Call you doctor and get his advice or see a nephrologist for another opinion. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had one more quick question. If bun 25, creatinine 1.5, bun/creat ratio 17, egfr 58...The egfr means im in stage 3 CKD right? 58% kidney function?
Stage 3 CKD: You are correct in that your estimated GFR of 58 ml/min puts you into stage 3 chronic kidney disease. Remember, your GFR is estimated. The actual result may be greater, or lower, than the egfr. To get your acutal gfr, have a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance. Ask the physician who orders this test to have proteinuria (p) assess in that sample. If p is present, it may needed to be treated. ...Read more
