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

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 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 would be a reason for high creatinine and low GFR for the last 6 work up. I had an ultrasound and it was normal.

Many causes: Acute kidney injury or aki can be caused by dehydration, cardiac dysfunction, drugs, autoimmune diseases, radiographic contrast, and a host of other things. ...Read more

Normal: Your kidney function looks normal. The GFR is an estimated value that is highly dependent on a variety of factors like age, weight, meds and hydration level at the time of the test. Hope it helps. ...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

Should I be concerned with normal BUN, creatinine of 1.16, and GFR 53?

Should I be concerned with normal BUN, creatinine of 1.16, and GFR 53?

Depends on age: If you are overall healthy and young then the GFR is a touch low. If you are older and the GFR is holding steady it's nothing to worry about.
The creatinine is less significant, we usually focus on the GFR. Contact us for more details but it doesn't sound alarming. ...Read more

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

Prolactin and kidney: Hi. Those are two unrelated conditions. Serum prolactin (PRL) can accumulate in chronic kidney disease (CKD), but your CKD is way too mild to cause that. Ergo, you have hyperprolactinemia. Do you have amenorrhea and galactorrhea? If not, the PRL may be a red herring, and macroprolactinemia should be tested for. Why you fall into the category of Stage 4 CKD is unknown to us. So, eval. PRL and CKD ...Read more

My GFR is 49 and my creatinine level is within normal levels at 12. Do I need a second opinion as my gp does not seem to be concerned.

Kidney Disease?: If your GFR was obtained by a 24 hour urine collection for creatinine clearance, you have stage 3 chronic kidney disease (ckd). You should be referred to a nephrologist (n), as at some point you will have some of the chemical abnormalities associated with ckd, these are anemia and elevation of your parathyroid hormone. You will also need to have a renal ultrasound to see the size of your kidneys. ...Read more

Why might I have a gfr reading of 78 and no albumin in my urine and normal creatinine levels in my urine? So it's unable to calculate an ACR.

Why might I have a gfr reading of 78 and no albumin in my urine and normal creatinine levels in my urine? So it's unable to calculate an ACR.

High levels, not low: Levels, of albumin may be a marker for kidney problems. Your GFR is well within normal range. No albumin was detected in your urine. Urine ACR is the ratio between the concentration of albumin and creatinine in the urine. Since your urine albumin concentration is "zero", the ratio can't be calculated mathematically. The results of your tests are consistent with healthy kidneys. Dr. Anne. ...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

BUN 26 high. CREATININE 1.59 high. GFR 54 low. Is My Kidney Fine? Dr. said that Blood work is Great!!! My age is 38.

Elevated creatinine: Creatinine of 1.59 is high. Are you dehydrated? Drink 2-3 liters water/ juice gatorade. Take supplements with creatine? Stop. Why are you on Plaquenil? Lupus? Other autoimmune? What is blood pressure? That affects kidneys. Why catherization? Did you recently have the cath or CT with contrast? Contrast can raise creatinine (CR). Smoke? Stop.

No: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, neither a GFR of 37, nor a ureteral calculus, nor hydronephrosis are normal. You ought to be under the care of a urologist. ...Read more

Bun 16.Creatinine 1, 41 with GFR of 43. From >60 to 43 in 2 months. Sle. White female 53yo. Can anything cause a false low gfr? No previ kidney issues.

False low GFR: Yes. Some medications like Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) can temporarily increase your creatinine level which could falsely lower your gfr. Another is contrast dye for ct scan. It can temporarily raise your creatinine. But if it is not going back to normal after a few days it means there is contrast induced damage to the kidneys. Lupus is a good reason for kidney damage. ...Read more

Likely ok: If kidney function and electrolytes have remained within normal range, your lower urine output may reflect a higher water loss through skin (sweating) or stool. You may consider increasing your fluid intake a bit although not perhaps necessary. ...Read more

Need more info: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, you seem to have microcytic anemia, which may be due beta thalassemia trait and/or iron deficiency. Your neutrophil count is borderline low. It may be useful to consult a hematologist.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats.
