My father has a 1.4 a creatinine level and he sufering a gout of both of two feet can he survive for kidney disease?

Creatinine 1.4: Creatinine of 1.4 is not so bad; he can survive and live well at this level of kidney function, so long as it does not deteriorate; diet matters; his meds matter; his state of hydration matters; he requires close care and diet counsel -- can be done!!

See below.: Edema of the lower extremities comes from liver or kidney disease or from heart pump failure or to leaky vessels or excess sodium in diet. See doc to make sure we have crossed all items off list. If none of the above it is idiopathic edema caused by a slight imbalance in the hydrostatic pressures in the leg vessels. Sometimes due to prior infection / trauma or obesity.

Ask your doctor: Many things going on here. Could be reflex sympathetic dystrophy which is an abnormal neurological reaction to trauma. Calf pain could possibly be phlebitis or a clot. Are you walking on foot? Consult your doctor immediately!

If I have high slighty high uric acid and water retention and ankle pain could I have kidney disease? The ankle pain started first a few months ago.

Could be gout: There could be many different things contributing here. One possibility is the problems are not related... The both water retention and ankle pain could be from being overweight if that is a concern. Another possibility is that you can have gout, which is when elevated uric acid deposits crystals in joints which cause pain. You should review these findings with the doctor that ordered the lab.

Can anyone tell me is throbbing foot pain a symptom of kidney failure in systemic lupus?

Throbbing Foot Pain: Swelling in the ankles can be a symptom of kidney failure, secondary to fluid retention. Lupus may cause global body pain and damage, as it is an autoimmune disease. This question is something that is too complex to diagnose over the internet. You need to visit a rheumatologist or podiatrist to have the situation evaluated in person and with laboratory tests.

Intense foot pain not nerve pain though it feels as if I've ran marathons or been standing for days when I haven't. Also ankle pain and lower back pai?

Intense foot pain not nerve pain though it feels as if I've ran marathons or been standing for days when I haven't. Also ankle pain and lower back pai?

Intense Foot Pain: When pain is intense at the foot level, you think about nerve pain or bone pain. If you have not done anything to possible bruise or break a bone, then the nerves from the neck, spine, and low back should be evaluated. Seek the advice of an orthopedist, neurologist, or physiatrist. Hope this helps. Dr Rich Blake

I am a 29 female, I have had horrific lower back pain, and now suffering painful left hip to foot pain (constant, uncomfortable) I'm confused?

Radiculopathy: A radiculopathy, or nerve root pain, may be the cause. If a bulging disk or another inflammatory condition in the low back progresses enough, it may eventually put pressure on a nerve root. This would cause pain in the distribution of the nerve, or in the case of the nerves in the low back, right down to the foot. I would go be seen by your doctor. A disk bulge or other problem can be seen on mri.

What's more accurate, CT scan or MRI? What are they used for? BF has lower back, abdominal & testicles pain + pinching in penis. And foot pain too

More Info: The given story is pretty vague. I think the best thing would be to have a thorough clinical exam before deciding on any imaging. I would (if testicualr or penile problem is suspected) start with an ultrasound.
