Creatinine of 17?: Are you sure that your aunt's creatinine (c) is 17, not 1.7? If her c is 17, she should be on dialysis. A biopsy would not be done in someone that high a c. If the c is 1.7, it seems that she had a glomerulonephritis, the cause of which needs to be determined for a diagnosis and prognosis.

My ultrasound said abnormal resistive index on r kidney suggesting medical renal disease or renal stenosis. My kidney blood levels were all low?

See a nephrologist for more answers. Good luck. ...Read more
