What is a normal level of creatinine for a male over 50 that has one kidney?

What is a normal level of creatinine for a male over 50 that has one kidney?

Normal creatinine: One's serum creatinine level is dependent on one's age, body weight, race and sex. To get an exact idea of how kidney is functioning, you need to have a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance done. See a neprhologist to have this done to see how well your one kidney is working.

Kidney (Definition)

The kidneys are paired organs that lie on either side of the vertebral column. Part of their critical functions include the excretion of urine and removal of nitrogenous wastes products from the blood. They regulate acid-base, electrolyte, fluid balance and blood pressure. Through hormonal signals, the kidneys control the ...Read more

Control and prevent.: Treatment is aimed at controlling the underlying disease which is causing his dysfunction (diabetes, hypertension, etc.) and in preventing further damage to the kidneys by avoiding any kidney toxic medications and in potentially taking appropriate medications such as angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors. Sounds like you have already talked to someone about this.

What creatinine levels indicate kidney problems?

Varies: Although serum creatinine is routinely tested when blood chemistry is ordered, it is not a standardized test (i.e. different labs will give a slightly different numerical values & direct comparison of values from such labs is not meaningful). Frequently, normal serum creatinine ranges from 0.8 to 1.3 mg/dl. However, other factors such as degree of hydration and the muscle mass of the patient.

I had a creatinine level 109, do you think I have kidney problems? Thanks

Ask your doctor...: Without the source of specimen like urine or blood and their units of value, it is impossible to what 109 may refer to. Besides, always correlate the lab reports with clinical pictures. How to sort all the related things out for good care? Follow suggestion in articles listed in http://formefirst. Com/onDealSickness.

Kindly advised for my friend male 34 hemoglobin 4.1 and creatinine 34.2 levels what happen to his kidney if this is the situation. Thanks.

Kindly advised for my friend male 34 hemoglobin 4.1 and creatinine 34.2 levels what happen to his kidney if this is the situation. Thanks.

Can be fatal: A Hgb of 4.1 suggests near cardiac collapse. If no immediate transfusion. Patient can go into irreversible cardiac failure. Having an elevated creatinine in the 30 range means kidney failure, .Creatinine is a waste product that is eliminated in urine.. With a creatinine >10 dialysis is usually suggested. Patient may be having a terminal event unless quickly transfused and hydrated.

How does creatinine level come to normal for a kidney patient on dialysis?

How does creatinine level come to normal for a kidney patient on dialysis?

Filter, toxins: Dialysis does the work of kidney- removing fluids andtoxins.Electrolytes move along the concentration gradient, so toxins which are high in the blood, goes to the dialysate solution.Creatinine is removed from the blood during dialysis, so these levels are low in the patient after dialysis.

My creatinine levels are high. The dr. Says my kidneys are stressed. What can I do to help my kidneys?

Drink lots of water: In meantime, stop taking otc pain medications like Ibuprofen & naproxen. Also review your medications w/your doctor & pharmacist looking for kidney irritants. Then go see your doctor again for repeat testing. If creatinine level remains high (chronic kidney disease), it's time for a more thorough investigation including ultrasound of kidneys looking for stones & damage.

Hi. I'm paras. I'm have suffering from diabetes and my kidney creatinine level is 7.00. What should I do to reduce these levels or to stable it?

High creatinine: You need to see a nephrologist and have a history taken, have a physical exam and have both a 24 hour urine collection to assess you kidney function and to see how much protein you have in that collection. Another exam that is needed is a renal ultrasound to see if you have any obstruction of kidneys that can give these high levels of creatinine. In the absence of obstruction, you cannot lower it.

My son creatinine level of 105 and it came down 85 it raised to 101 and again dropped to 84 and was 74. What does this mean. Is his kidneys disfunctio?

My son creatinine level of 105 and it came down 85 it raised to 101 and again dropped to 84 and was 74. What does this mean. Is his kidneys disfunctio?

Value are too high?: Normal Creatinine Blood Levels are 0.6 to1.2 mgm per deciliter And you are giving figures of 105, 85, 101 etc. These numbers are not compatible with life Discuss with your Doctors who ordered the blood test as to why was it ordered and what the exact numbers are.

What is high creatinine level after a kidney transplant?

No precise answer: The creatinine test is a surrogate for the more precise measurement of kidney function called gfr--glomerular filtration rate. The creatinine can vary based on donor and recipient gender, age and size, as well as some medical conditions most recipients with very good kidney function have a GFR between 40-70 cc/min and a serum creatinine between 1-2 mg/dl.

My CREATININE LEVEL is 1.49. Is it a kidney disease confirmation?

Not necessarily.: If you are healthy, this lab finding might be unexpected. However, it doesn't mean that you have intrinsic kidney disease. There are factors other than the kidney which could raise serum creatinine including dehydration, liver disease, heart disease, urinary tract obstruction, muscle breakdown. Certain antibiotics and blood pressure medications can elevate it. I would go to your PCP and repeat it

What are dangerous creatinine levels and can it lead to kidney failure?

What are dangerous creatinine levels and can it lead to kidney failure?

Above 1.2: At most labs. It indicate renal abnormality if it's higher. When associated with elevated BUN or low GFR it indicates some type renal failure- see pcp.

Can there be a link between high levels of creatinine in kidney tests and hypothyroidism?

Can there be a link between high levels of creatinine in kidney tests and hypothyroidism?

No: These two findings, elevated creatinine, and low thyroid hormone, are unrelated. High creatinine is commonly associated with high parathyroid hormone, in case there was a sound-alike error in your question.

My BUN level is 3 and my BUN/CREATININE RATIO is 4 and I only have 1 kidney is this good or not good?

My BUN level is 3 and my BUN/CREATININE RATIO is 4 and I only have 1 kidney is this good or not good?

Sounds okay: Reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthies fall outside on either end. Take care of that kidney. If your physician isn't worried, you shouldn't be either.

Can you tell me is there any effective medicines to control the uric acid and creatinine levels of kidney patients or diets.?

Yes: There are certain medications available to reduce uric acid levels (allopurinol, uloric). There are no medicines available specifically to control cretinine levels but treating the underlying disease (diabetes, high blood pressure, etc) may improve your creatinine.

What should be the normal level of sr creatinine in case of unilateral kidney? What shoul be the line of treatment if it is 2.6?

What should be the normal level of sr creatinine in case of unilateral kidney? What shoul be the line of treatment if it is 2.6?

Creatinine of 2.6?: If you have one kidney, with a creatinine of 2.6, you have chronic kidney disease. What's it due to and how well your kidney is working is not yet known. See a nephrologist (n) for a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance, protein, have some blood work taken and get a renal ultrasound of your sole kidney. Once these data are in, the n can give your an accurate assessment of your kidney's status.

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.

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.

Low GFR: GFR below 60 for > 3 months may be an indication of chronic kidney disease. As cardiovascular factors (blood pressure, glucose, lipids) are a major cause of kidney disease, these should be controlled. GFR also reduces with age.

I did kidney transplant before two month and after surgery my creatinine is 1.2 but now 1.8, is safe now or how can I lower this level?

I did kidney transplant before two month and after surgery my creatinine is 1.2 but now 1.8, is safe now or how can I lower this level?

Rising creatinine: With your rapid rise of serum creatinine, get in touch with your transplant team (t). The possibilities causing this increase will be discussed with you. Get in touch with your t as soon as possible to preserve your transplanted kidney. Good luck.
