Bun 16.Creatinine 1, 41 with GFR of 43. From >60 to 43 in 2 months. Sle. White female 53yo. Can anything cause a false low gfr? No previ kidney issues.
False low GFR: Yes. Some medications like Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) can temporarily increase your creatinine level which could falsely lower your gfr. Another is contrast dye for ct scan. It can temporarily raise your creatinine. But if it is not going back to normal after a few days it means there is contrast induced damage to the kidneys. Lupus is a good reason for kidney damage. ...Read more
Different physiology: The blood vessels in the glomeruli are damaged by inflammation in the nephritic syndrome sufficient for at least a few of them to bleed. They merely leak protein in the nephrotic syndrome, in which obvious inflammation in the classic sense is not visible but protein-retaining molecules in the gbm are lost. Famously, the membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis family produces both syndromes. ...Read more
