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 more

What is the most common cause of the creatinine and bun to be in the normal range and the GFR to be a low 51?

Inconsistent: By definition, creatinine is not normal if the GFR is 51. GFR is calculated from serum creatinine value and if the GFR is below 90, that equates to higher creatinine than would be normal for that person. ...Read more

What kind of condition does the asian person have if creatinine is .60 normal but GFR is less at 59 for 28 years old?

You're fine: Many other pathologists and nephrologists agree with me that the "estimated GFR's" are misleading and subscientific. The fact that there's an adjustment for black people "because black people are more muscular" suggests a misuse of data. Many people are being told they're sick when they're not. Your creatinine is perfectly fine and I would stop worrying unless there's something else concerning. ...Read more

I have Creatinine level of 1.2, normal BUN, GFR of 56, I'm 31, prolacton level of 82. Any suggestions?

Um, those are: not necessarily abnormal. Prolactin has more significance if it is sky high (it isn't). The others at most would probalby indicate a bit of dehydration. ...Read more

CKD: Have your health care provider measure your cystatin c. You can then use a version of the ckd-epi equation (found on-line) that incorporates cystatin c to more accurately determine your gfr. Of course, if your urinalysis has protein, you technically already have kidney disease. ...Read more
