High Creatinine Levels And Low Gfr Levels
I am told my Glomerular filtration Rate is 57.6. Does this indicate Kidney disease? Creatinine is 1.0 BUN is 20 total Protein is 7.0 I am 55 w/f
GFR: Your Estimated filtration rate is borderline. This is not a problem itself. The important concern is whether disease exists that might be progressive. Serum creatinine of 1.0 is "normal". So is serum creatinine 1.1. However, creatinine relates to muscle mass. If you are small muscled as a. 55 yo woman, then creatinine of 1.1 or 1.0 may indicate some minor impairment in its excretion. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What would be a reason for high creatinine and low GFR for the last 6 work up. I had an ultrasound and it was normal.
What does high glucose , blood urea nitrogen and creatinine but low GFR usually indicate diabetes or kidney problems?
BUN of 10 with creatinine of 1.05
year ago BUN of 12 creatinine .89.
Now have low bun/creatine level
and GFR of 58. Urine and all other lab's normal.
My glomerular filtration rate has been very high for years, urea is very low, creatinine is always around the lower range. Is this a renal problem?
No: eGFR (estimated GFR) is a number calculated from your serum creatinine and it is affected by the filtering function of your kidneys as well as other factors such as muscle mass. Low GFR (and high serum creatinine or urea) is a likely sign of abnormal filtering function of the kidneys. However, low serum creatinine does not indicate renal disease. ...Read more
Nephrologist: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, the results suggest kidney disease. You should consult a kidney doctor, nephrologist, for an evaluation and treatment. Do not delay seeing a kidney doctor to prevent further deterioration. Wish you good health! ...Read more
