Low Creatinine In Urine And Normal Level In Blood
Creatinine levels consistently low for adult life, typical range is. 48 to. 52- All kidney, urine, blood tests normal- any reason for concern?
Urine is the product of the kidneys, which is produced to eliminate the waste products of metabolism, manage body fluid balance, &maintain acid-base balance. The blood is first filtered by the kidneys, and the composition of the resulting fluid is then altered depending on the body's needs. It is composed of mostly water, and breakdown products from blood cells impart ...Read more

Here are two possibilities:
1. You collected more than 24 hours' urine. This would most likely happen if you collected the first morning urine on both the starting and finishing day.
2. You have a large muscle mass. Creatinine is a muscle breakdown product, and people with large muscle mass excrete more creatinine in urine as a result. ...Read more

How to reduce creatinine level from 4.9, having protein in urine of 67 mg. Person also have fasting blood sugar of 160 and now slowly coming to normal?
Lowering creatinine: It seems as if this person has diabetes. Apparently, this person has seen a physician. The creatinine (c) is dependent on a person's sex, age, weight and race.

The c may not go down but may not increase with therapy ...Read more
Had blood and urinalysis 7/15. Blood work was all normal but urine showed creatinine level of 409, trace protein, trace leukocyte esterase, WBC, hyali?
Stop worrying: I understand you have fibromuscular dysplasia of the renal arteries and hope this can be addressed. The urine creatinine, trace protein and hyaline casts are non-issues, the trace of leukocyte esterase and white cells (unless very numerous or you have symptoms of infection) are likely contamination, and if your physician is not concerned, I would not be either. Best wishes. ...Read more
Strong kidneys!: It sounds like your kidneys are working normally. That's what they're supposed to do -- clear metabolic products like creatinine from the blood, dumping it into the urine. The urine level might be especially high if you haven't been drinking lots of fluids lately, i.e. if the urine is relatively concentrated. In any case, this is a good sign, nothing to worry about. ...Read more
My aunt who lives in canada has a creatinine level of 151 and eGFR 33. And for the past two weeks has been passing blood with her urine.?
Low GFR: That is a very high creatinine level (not good) and a low GFR (not good either) + blood in the urine (not good). She needs to see a doctor (nephrologist if possible) to determine why this is happening (which could be many possibilities). Kidneys can be damaged very quickly for a variety of reasons, so hopefully your aunt will not delay getting a diagnosis! ...Read more
24hr urine (5000mL) creatinine, protein, and albumin results are high - about double the max normal, but blood is normal. What would cause this?
Proteinuria: With certain kidney pathology there can be heavy amounts of protein lost in the urine due to glomerular pathology but the rest of the kidney function can be good enough so that blood tests for kidney function are still normal. A nephrologist can better explain your status after evaluating you and all your pertinent test results. ...Read more

Find cause: Assuming your creatinine is blood level; mine runs 1.5 or so as I'm a muscle kind of guy but it's high for a lady. This old-fashioned pathologist doubts the value of in lab-generated egfr's in the absence of known kidney disease. Anything from serious disease to over-the-counter painkillers can raise creatinine / compromise the kidneys for at least a while. Follow up & consider other causes. ...Read more

For a spot urine test for 50lb girl, is trace blood, calcium 2.4, creatinine 3.3 within normal range? If not what can it be from? How can I help her

This can also explain the urine red blood cells, as calcium buildup in the kidneys has this effect. There are several possible causes. Followup with your doc at your scheduled appointment and complete the evaluation. ...Read more
