I am told my Glomerular filtration Rate is 57.6. Does this indicate Kidney disease? Creatinine is 1.0 BUN is 20 total Protein is 7.0 I am 55 w/f
GFR: Your Estimated filtration rate is borderline. This is not a problem itself. The important concern is whether disease exists that might be progressive. Serum creatinine of 1.0 is "normal". So is serum creatinine 1.1. However, creatinine relates to muscle mass. If you are small muscled as a. 55 yo woman, then creatinine of 1.1 or 1.0 may indicate some minor impairment in its excretion. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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.

elevated BUN, elevated k+ , elevated chloride, normal creatinine, and decreased Co2.
Could this indicate kidney failure?
Probably not: I need more information in order to optimally answer your question. However, at a glance, the best indicator of kidney function is creatinine clearance. BUN can be elevated from other processes. I would need to look at the lab report to confirm your impressions. You are too young to have CKD. You should review the labs with the doctor who ordered them. ...Read more

Dehydration: Creatinine is more sensitive than BUN in terms of assessing kidney function, although, the most sensitive would be GFR (glomerular filtration rate). Sometimes the high ration is seen in people who are dehydrated or have urea production increase such as liver cirrhosis. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

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.
Generally no: An elevated bun/creatinine ratio (>20) is usually suggestive of "dehydration" and improves with increased fluids. Unless the patient with a kidney infection is also fluid depleted (due to vomiting or diminished fluid intake), the bun/creatinine is not excessively elevated in this setting. ...Read more
Usually not: There are many other more common reasons for a child to have a higher than normal bun/creatinine other than kidney cancer. Some of these include: dehydration, medications, infections, and urinary tract abnormalities. It is important to find out the cause of the impaired kidney function so that it can be treated. ...Read more
