See a neprhologist to have this done to see how well your one kidney is working. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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 ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

My father had a radical nephrectomy 3 years back. He lost one kidney. Recently tests shown his creatinine level 2.0. Not diabetic. How to lower down?

Follow-up: If dad is a well-muscled man (which raises creatinine well above "normal range" for today's couch potatoes) and we already know why he lost half his nephrons, this may not be an issue. I trust he is being followed up and that folks are watching for focal-segmental glomerulosclerosis / hyperfiltration lesion that's fairly common in kidneys that lose their partner. Don't try to treat a lab value. ...Read more

Here are some. ..: The numbers of creatinine and BUN alone indicate you've adequate function of kidneys. But it's still wise to correlate the numbers with history and prior test values if available. Meanwhile, it's good idea to chat with your doc for better clinical pertinence.

I have a history of hidden kidney stones. I also have pkd. Would that raise my creatinine levels on the kidneys?

PKD and stones: Yes, the combination of PKD and kidney stones can elevate serum creatinine. Stones in PKD are often small and trapped between cysts. Cysts also calcify - their walls calcify. To do: Drink 4 liters fluid per day; avoid caffeine; add lemon extract (ReaLemon); add orange juice; limit meat; limit salt; limit saturated fats; make diet 80-90% fruit, veggie, grain. Limit milk. Egg white is excellent. ...Read more

I recently went for blood count and my creatinine level was 1.34. Are my heading towards kidney failure. Can it be managed?

Good to ask!: Creatinine is a breakdown product of muscle cells, and it's normally eliminated by the kidneys. When it's elevated, it may imply that kidneys aren't functioning as well. Since diabetes and high blood pressure are the main causes of kidney failure, make sure you're ok in these areas. Talk to your doctor for info on you, but a mildly elevated creatinine does not mean that your kidneys will fail. ...Read more

Hi, I want to ask if appeton weight gain can increase your serum creatinine level and it is dangerous to your health or kidneys? Thank you

Creatinine: I don't know what you mean by "appeton weight gain", but in general, high protein intake, bulky muscle mass such as from weight training, anabolic steroid usage will increase serum creatinine. High protein intake can exacerbate underlying kidney problem. ...Read more

Lisonopril and spiranolactone dosage too high, caused acute kidney failure. Stop meds, got better. Creatinine levels fall monthly, now 1.6 is that ok?

Lisonopril and spiranolactone dosage too high, caused acute kidney failure. Stop meds, got better. Creatinine levels fall monthly, now 1.6 is that ok?

Kidney failure: Did your doctor tell you why you had acute kidney failure (akf) on Lisinopril (l) and spiranolactone (s)? L causes akf, which is reversible, when l's stopped in cases of a renal artery stenosis. Pt's recover their original kidney function. Your creatinine (c) level of 1.6 may be abnormal if your c was 1.2 before the akf. You are 51 years old with CHF and chronic kidney disease, your c wont' be 1. ...Read more

I'm 51 and take hydrochlorothiazide. My creatinine level is 1.4 and my bun is 20. My bun/creat ratio is 14. Should I be concerned about kidney disease?

Observation: Your bun/creatinine ratio is minimally elevated. The hydrochlorothiazide itself makes you urinate more, this can lead to slight dehydration and the results in the ratio above, make sure you are adequately hydrated and the ratio doesn't increase by rechecking every 3-6 months until it is normal. ...Read more
