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 more
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 more
What causes extreme low ferrittin levels and reduced RBC distribution, low creatinine levels? . CBC said to be normal, but high MCHC, all other norm
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?
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
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

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 more

Normal liver enzymes & gluten and wheat allergy, alk phos levels elevated to 2, 125. Do you agree with growth spurt?
Absolutely not: That is an extremely high alkaline phosphatase level and has nothing to do with growth spurts. This test needs repeating and if still that elevated requires a thorough evaluation asap. If all other liver enzymes are normal, the alk phos may be related to issues with bone such as paget's disease. Do not wait. ...Read more
The BUN is usually 10 times the creatinine. When the creatinine goes up, the BUN goes up similarly to roughly keep this proportion, in most kidney disease states.
The notable exception is when the creatinine goes up say by 20% to 1.2, but the BUN goes up *5 to 50. This strongly suggests a pre-renal state, commonly dehydration.
Mild elevations of BUN with normal creatinines aren't of concern. ...Read more

The physician or nephrologist who knows the case is best qualified to render proper care and followup ...Read more

My son is 16 years old 5'10" 162 lbs. I was told his creatinine level was a bit high (1.1). What does this mean? How will this affect him?
Whoa: Unless junior's personal physician very much disagrees, i'd ignore it. The "reference range" was set for non-exercising adults. Any teenaged boy with good muscles will have creatinine 1.1 or higher; in whole classes of athletic med students, most men had creatinine above this. When I was lifting daily, mine was 1.6; a bodybuilder often has 2.0. Too many lawyers and too little common sense. ...Read more
