Low creatinine and elevated bun/creatinine ratio. Please explain?

Decrease in flow.: Bun=blood urea nitrogen, byproduct of proteins ingested, if rise to high levels due to kidney problem, can cause toxic affects on the body. Creatinine= measurement of renal function. Normal bun/cr ratio about 10. The higher that ratio, the more likely it is not intrinsic kidney disease per se, but reduction in blood flow or volume to kidney, like when on strong diuretic-prerenal-reversible. ...Read more

Elevated creatinine serum what is critical?

Elevated creatinine serum what is critical?

Diagnosis needed: Serum creatinine is affected by protein intake, gender, age, race, muscular build, and renal function. A rising creatinine is always of concern. "normal" on lab tests is generally less than 1.2 mg/dl. Renal function can be estimated with a more complex formula or measured with a 24 h urine collection. See your internist for further evaluation. ...Read more

Lisinopril --- ?Can it elevate creatinine levels?

Lisinopirl and creat: A strong association exists between acute increases in serum creatinine (c) of up to 30% that stabilize within the first 2 months of acei (a) therapy and long-term preservation of renal function. This relationship holds for persons with creatinine values of greater than >1.4 mg/dl. A's should be stopped if the increase in c is > 30%. A's used in patients with a renal artery stenosis give higher c. ...Read more

High bun and bun/creatinine ratio results so bad kidneys?

High bun and bun/creatinine ratio results so bad kidneys?

Most of time: Generally high BUN and creatinine go hand in hand in bad kidneys(chronic kidney disease)., and bun/creat ratio is 10-15 to 1 , however if ratio >20 may indicate superimposed second cause like dehydration or bleeding in gut. ...Read more

At what serum creatinine and blood urea level dialysis should start?

At what serum creatinine and blood urea level dialysis should start?

Onset of dialysis: There are no set levels for BUN and creatinine (c) to start dialysis. The onset of dialysis is determined by a 24 hour urine collection for c clearance. If the patient is a diabetic, dialysis usually starts at a c clearance of 15 ml/min or less. If the patient is a non-diabetic, dialysis starts at a c clearance of. ...Read more

How to reduce serum creatinine and blood urea level for 62 yr old male right now the readings are: serum creatinine ---> 2.1 blood urea --->67?

High creatinine: You need to see a nephroloigist (n) for a history, physical examination and lab studies. You need a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance and protein determination. You also need more blood work and a renal ultrasound to see the size and morphology of your kidneys. If you have some obstruction of your urinary tract, lowering of you elevated levels may be possible. See a n for more infoirmation. ...Read more

High microalbumin and microalbumin/creatinine lab results with good b.P. And kidney function. Why high?

High microalbumin and microalbumin/creatinine lab results with good b.P. And kidney function.  Why high?

High microablumin: Your microalbumin/creatinine being high signifies that you have proteinuria. See a nephrologist to have a 24 hour urine collection for creatinine clearance and protein to see how much protein you have in your urine for 24 hours and to see what your kidney function is. Blood work will be needed as well to diagnose the cause of your proteinuria. Go to a nephrologist to answer your question. ...Read more
