Elevated Kidney Enzymes
Kidney trouble: It is well known that diabetes can lead to significant complications in the organs where there are very small blood vessels, i.e. Your eyes, your kidneys, and your feet and hands. If you are not getting good blood sugars on your treatment regimen this will only get worse. I would wish for you a good relationship with your diabetes doctor and good treatment to control your blood sugars.
The kidneys are paired organs that lie on either side of the vertebral column. Part of their critical functions include the excretion of urine and removal of nitrogenous wastes products from the blood. They regulate acid-base, electrolyte, fluid balance and blood pressure. Through hormonal signals, the kidneys control the ...Read more

Blood test results showed elevated liver enzymes and elevated kidney function. What does this mean?
Need for evaluation: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking a history, physical examination, looking at the actual lab results and may be additional studies. Lab results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is in the best position to do that.

Child has elevated AST liver enzyme (1st test 58, 2nd test 43). Dr says no worry. Also has complex kidney cyst. Is it a sign of cancer spread 2 liver?
Return To Doctor: Child's age/details of Kidney disorder unknown. Liver enzymes (AST, ALT) elevate with liver cell damage however AST elevations can also come from anomalies in other organs, (eg. heart, kidneys & more) & does not point specifically to liver. Your child's AST's are very mildly elevated. With so little info given, suggest you see doctor to discuss cancer fears & to better understand child's conditionSee 1 more doctor answer
Low kidney enzymes?: Kidneys do not have enzymes that are measured in the blood. If you have a low bun, you may be on a very low protein diet or are overhydrated. If your creatinine is low, you may have very little muscle mass or be over-hydrated. If this does not answer your question, please name to the enzymes you are referring to.
Complex: You may also have kidney chemistry abnormalities. Some cystic diseases have cysts in the liver and kidney.
Wouldn't a tumour on the kidney or liver cause abnormal CMP (liver enzymes & kidney functioning)?
Could but always: Yes tumors on the liver or kidneys can cause abnormal lab values but not always.
Not typically: If the kidney stone is associated with a urinary tract infection, especially if severe this can make the liver enzymes go up, as can a number of medicines, but the stone itself does not typically do so.
UTI: It should not however if you are taking antibiotics some of them can affect liver enzymes.
Debatable: One newer approach to treating chronic kidney disease (ckd) is experimental anti-inflammatory drugs. There have been limited positive results. Alternatively, there are many testimonials on the benefits of enzyme therapy for a variety of disorders, many of which have some inflammatory component. Thus, benefits of enzyme therapy in ckd/dialysis is debatable. Best, talk to your doctor and discuss.See 1 more doctor answer
For 6 months, I've been feeling pain in my lower back. My liver enzyme test came back high- AST 47 & ALT 71. Is it related? Could it b my kidneys?
Easy and safe: Ultrasound is very safe and easy, and it can tell you if there is something wrong with your kidney (stone, dilated collecting system, etc). It can also look at the liver, if needed, at the same time. It is an excellent first step to visualize a problem. If you get an answer, you're done, and you don't have to go through a ct, mri, etc.See 1 more doctor answer
