High Gluten Levels And Low Creatinine Level
I have a high bun/ creatinine level (28) and a low creatinine level (0.5) . Should I be concerned or do something?
BUN/Creat Ratio: I personally would not worry about it since the high ratio is due to a slightly elevated BUN. This might be due to a diet high in non-essential amino acids (nothing to truly be concerned about) or a mild lack of water intake. If you are still concerned, please see your primary doctor and go over all of that with her/him. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Wheat barley rye contains gluten, a protein molecule that in susceptible people can cause reactions and long term illness. There is celiac, the most well known and severe gluten disease. There is gluten sensitivity, affecting more people, but usually milder. There is wheat allergy, less common than the others. The treatment, for now, is to avoid all gluten in ...Read more
What does it mean if your creatinine level is too high 1.16 and your bun/creatinine ratio is very low at a 5?
Why do you ask?: Labs mean nothing in the absence of a clinical history. You might be a vegan bodybuilder. When I was lifting weights every day, my creatinine ran 1.6-1.8. The fellow-pathologists with whom I've discussed it think that reports generated by labs are causing overdiagnosis of renal disease (it's subscience -- "there's an adjustment for race because black people are more muscular.") ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have a high blood Bun level of 23 w/range 10-20 and a low blood Creatinine level of 0.65 w/range of 0.70-1.20. I'm a little confused as to meaning?
Dehydration: Were you dehydrated when the blood was drawn. If you were asked to come fasting, you may not have taken enough water. Dehydration affects BUN more than it affects creatinine. Since creatinine is normal, I would not worry about BUN. At your next test, make sure you drink water in the morning before the blood is drawn. ...Read more

My calcium levels are a little high, vit. D is very low, creatinine is 1.22 and egfr is 59. Possible hyperparathyroid? What should my gp check next?
Parathyroid hormone,: Level to be checked first with phosphorus level. Your parathyroid needs to be low in the context of high calcium. If high or even normal, and not low, would check parathyroid nuclear scan. If an adenoma (benign tumor) is found, it will need to be removed or you will need to see endocrinologist or nephrologist for further management. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is there no cure to low ionized calcium and high intact pth? My creatinine level is within the normal level. What's the cure to this?
Things to check: Hi. I would recommend checking 25-hydroxyvitamin D, 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D, and 24-hour urine for calcium and creatinine. If indicated, get worked up for intestinal malabsorption. Your secondary hyperparathyroidism is a physiologic response of the parathyroids to a threat of low blood calcium. ...Read more
75y old(single kidney,high creatinine,pressure ok),had dizziness since total colectomy surgery 6 months.Co2 level is low(~114).May this be the reason?
Here are some ...: Has the dizziness been constant (24 hrs a day) or intermittent or just related with positioning? if constant, need to consider some change in central nerve system incurred in the recent past including drug use; if off & on or positioning-related, consider postural hypotention. In short, is there any problems in central nerve, drug effects (iatrogenic), or indeed low red blood cell count, etc. ...Read more
