Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (Definition)

The comprehensive metabolic panel (cmp) is a panel of blood tests that serves as an initial broad medical screening tool. The cmp provides a rough check of kidney function, liver function, and electrolyte and fluid balance. The cmp is an expanded version of the basic metabolic panel (bmp), which does not include liver tests. A cmp (or bmp) is usually ordered as part of ...Read more

I had a cmp done at doctors. Everything was normal except anion gap At 3. My blood urea nitrogen at 21. (doc said cuz I fasted). Why is this low?

First things 1st.: Why did you have the test? No test should be interpreted in a vacuum. Most of the time the abnormality described is pretty meaningless. But attempting to answer your question requires we know about your medical history. ...Read more

**BUN/creatinine level is 54.7**??? urea nitrogen is 29, creatinine is 0.53, eGFR is 128, potassium is 4.4. Cause for concern? I literally cannot find anything anywhere about a BUN/creatinine level that high.

BUN/GFR 54.7: I would not worry. It is a ratio-calculated value. Your BUN is 29 (normal < 20) but that could be due to either mild dehydration or high protein in body (unless you are actively bleeding). Your creatinine is 0.53 which is great. The ratio is BUN/Cr 29/0.53 = 54.7. Your GFR another number we look seriously at is 128 great, potassium is 4.4 normal. Do not worry it is an artifact of the math ...Read more

Blood work done these are the results Urea nitrogen 22.2 high Urea nitrogen / creatinine 20.6 high Being a hep c patient Concern or not?

Creatinine level?: 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, your test results may be normal. You did not provide creatinine level but by calculating from the data you gave it is 1.08 and it is normal. You do not need to worry about these results. Do take treatment for Hep C as it is curable ...Read more

I am on a vegetarian diet with no exercise my urea nitrogen came back 6.5 (6-20mg/dl)and createnine 0.43 (0.5-0.9 mg/dl).plz coment with egfr of 175.

Stop worrying: That's normal if you're on a vegetarian diet. This is a healthy choice provided that you supplement, and are aware that it is difficult to get enough protein, iron, calcium, B12 and a bunch of other things. Much of what vegetarians write for interested parties about the supposed benefits is disinformation / untruths, but it does give you the moral high ground. Choose wisely. ...Read more

What does a urea nitrogen level of 27 indicate?

What is the most likely cause of the patient's elevated urea nitrogen?

What is the most likely cause of the patient's elevated urea nitrogen?

Here are some...: Blood urea nitrogen reflects extrinsic nitrogen intake and blood concentration. Hence, the common causes for mild elevated BUN are dehydration and high-protein diet under assuming kidney works well. In addition, kidney failure or poor circulation like heart failure may cause BUN to rise. To know more how it may mean, testing blood for creatinine, BUN, BUN to Creatinine ratio has been the standard. ...Read more

My urea nitrogen is 67.53mg/dl. What is cause, effect and remedy for this?

My urea nitrogen is 67.53mg/dl. What is cause, effect and remedy for this?

That is high...: BUN at 67.53 mg/dl alone indicates something wrong in the function of kidney because it's uncommon to raise to this level from dehydration or internal bleeding or excessive nitrogen intake. So, look into serum creatinine, electrolytes, etc. So to correlate with overall clinical pictures and deduce the realistic clinical significance. Hence, see & ask Doc for detail and specifics. Best wish. .. ...Read more
