How To Lower Bun And Creatinine Levels
My creatinine level and bun are normal. My GFR is lower than last year (50). I am caucasian. Should I be concerned about kidney function? Thanks.
If i was taking 200mg of spironolactone when I have my lab work done, would that affect the bun and creatinine level? Would it make it higher or lower
Likely no effect,,,: This is a potassium sparing diuretic and is a weak diuretic other than this function. This and other diuretics should not have an effect on BUN and creatinine as these are based on amounts in the blood and creatinine is recovered by the kidney and so depend on renal function. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
Im 27 m,My creatinine is 0.92 six month back now its 1.02 & bun is 7.9 to 6.1 now why creatinine increase & bun decrease is it normally they fluctuate?
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
BUN is 4, bilirubin is 1.25, and creatinine is .77. Is my BUN too low? It has consistently been lower than normal.
Do not worry: You cannot have too low a BUN.

31 white female, 1.2 creatinine level, normal BUN, 82 Prolaction level, 56 GFR should I be concerned?
Prolactin and kidney: Hi. Those are two unrelated conditions. Serum prolactin (PRL) can accumulate in chronic kidney disease (CKD), but your CKD is way too mild to cause that. Ergo, you have hyperprolactinemia. Do you have amenorrhea and galactorrhea? If not, the PRL may be a red herring, and macroprolactinemia should be tested for. Why you fall into the category of Stage 4 CKD is unknown to us. So, eval. PRL and CKD ...Read more
Would losing 12 pounds on an already petite woman and dramatically decreasing protein cause BUN creatinine level to drop from 15 to 6 in 3 months?
Loss of muscle mass: In addition to losing fat, you are losing muscle mass and that is reflected in the drop in creatinine. You may wish to increase your protein intake and exercise. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless. Practice safe sex. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
