How To Treat Highlevels Of Creatinine
Here's accurate info: Somebody's kidding you or there is a misunderstanding. Creatine kinase is an enzyme found in the blood; the reference range was determined for couch potatoes, and in my series' of athletic medical students, a majority of healthy young people have "elevated levels" just from exercising. It's also high in a few illnesses your physician knows about, but not from "nerves". ...Read more
Clinical & Lab: Pcos is a complex disease.

Most pcos patients have weight issues too. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

See below: An elevated BUN with normal creatinine and a ratio of [generally more than 18-20] occurs most commonly in dehydrated individuals and is not a sign of kidney damage.It may also occur in in certain other conditions like bleeding in the intestines, artificial nutrition intravenously of Amino Acids and use of steroids. ...Read more
Depends: Sicker patients need closer attention. The ratio would be very different from say, recovery room, to icu, to telemetry unit, to med/surg floor, to chronic care (snf) settings. Also depends on skill of nurse. ...Read more
Dehydration: Dehydration is treated with fluids, which can given either by mouth or intravenously, depending on how dehydrated the patient is. How low one's creatinine (c) falls after hydration depends on what the person's baseline c was. Normally, the greater the serum sodium and creatinine are the greater the percentage fall in both after fluids are given. If dehydration is severe, a person is hospitalized. ...Read more

Hi! how can I treat low urea level in patient with liver disease and what is the role of lola in lowering urea level ! thanks a lot
Low urea is good: Most labs report "normal" range for blood urea nitrogen as with serum creatinine. In fact BUN should ideally be reported as normal < 20 in adults. Babies should have very low bun, lower the better. Your liver problem is something else and best discussed with your GI dr. ...Read more
Dialysis: The process of dialysis is to take blood out of a patient who has kidney failure and send that blood through a dialysis machine. Inside the machine, blood is filtered, somewhat like a normal kidney but much less effiiciently taking out waster and water that has accumulated in the blood. The processed blood is then returned to the patient. Typically, dialysis takes place for 4 hrs 3 days/wk. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
BUN/Cr > 20:1: Urea (BUN) is reabsorbed by the kidney; creatinine is not. In dehydration, as water decreases and urea is reabsorbed, the BUN rises. Eventually, the cr will rise, too (if dehydration continues), but it doesn't increase in magnitude as fast as the bun. The bun/cr ration is usually ~10:1...When it's greater than 20:1, this suggests dehydration. ...Read more
Lowering creatinine: There is no herbal medicine to lower elevated creatinine (c) and phosphorus (p) levels. You need to see a nephrologist and have a urine collection for 24 hours to measure your renal function (GFR) as well as the amount of protein in your urine. Blood tests and a renal ultrasound should be done to how much kidney function you have as well as if there is an obstruction affecting your kidney function. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
