False Elevation Reading Of Serum Creatinine
Hi sir my mothers serum creatinine lab reading is 3.1, is it causesany heavy problem to the kidneys?
Renal Insufficiency: Discuss this with her and pcp. This is consistent with renal insufficiency or early renal failure. If pcp is comfortable managing this, is not a problem as long as your mom follow instructions and take medications (i.e. For blood pressure) as indicated and avoid things like high protein in diet. Other conditions (i.e. Diabetes) should be well controlled. She can progress but hard to predict.
Yes: If exercising more you may become more dehydrated and this can further damage your kidneys. Weight changes should not unless breakdown products of protein build up again from not hydrating adequately, please see your doctor to discuss treatment to prevent further damage to your kidneys as soon as possible.See 1 more doctor answer
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.See 1 more doctor answer
0.6 to 1.4 mg/dL: Creatinine is a product of muscle metabolism. Because women generally have less muscle mass than men, their values are lower. Because of increased volume during pregnancy, lower limits of normal may be 0.4 -0.5 mg/dl. As an individual ages, the muscle mass may decline therefore the serum creatinine values may not adequately reflect the underlying renal function.See 2 more doctor answers
High creatinine: Before I can answer your question, I need to know your height and weight. If you are a tall person with a large amount of muscle mass, it is less serious than if you have less muscle mass. See a nephrologist to take a history to see if you have high BP or diabetes. You also need a renal ultrasound and a 24 hour urine collection to assess your renal function and to see if you have proteinuria.See 1 more doctor answer
Renal function: Serum creatinine is a reflection of kidney function and rising creatinine level indicates deteriorating kidney function. Please consult your doctor to find out why creatinine may be rising and what intervention may be needed.
Serum creatinine: By itself, your serum creatinine (C) is within normal limits. C is dependent on age, sex, race and weight. As you did not mention any personal information, ask the physician (P) who ordered the test. I suspect that if there were a problem with your C level, the P would have told you and you have nothing to worry about. Good luck.
No: The kidneys age and body mass falls so that the normal creatinine remains 1mg/dl. The glomerular filtration rate however falls steadily after age 50.
Kidney function: Creatinine is a breakdown product of muscle tissue. In the healthy situation it is cleared by the kidneys. Thus, a rise in creatinine is a sign of deterioration in kidney function.
Additional info: Hi Tammy, Here is some additional information for you regarding serum creatinine http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/tests-procedures/creatinine-test/home/ovc-20179389 Hope this helps
Normal range: There is some variation of creatinine level from day to day depending your hydration and nutritional status. If you have larger muscle mass, this tends to be on the higher side. Certain medication such as those for blood pressure (i.E lisinopril/losartan etc.) can cause increase of this substance. If it were concerning by your doc who ordered the lab, you would have been advised. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
How high is it?: I'm lean and quite muscular and during my best days lifting weights, my creatinine rose to 1.6 just from being heavily muscled. This is about as high as a healthy man who's not on steroids will get it. Now it's 1.4 which is normal for a fitness guy. The "normal range" is determined for men who do not strength-train. I wrote this considering that you might be in the same situation. Best to you.See 1 more doctor answer
