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

I have a urine test don on 1-27-2012 the test come back microalbumin/ creatinine ratio, random urine 2084 how bad is it what i need to do to fix it and how bad is it. I don nothing about the pr.

Please : Please reply with more information. The number you gave is not a ratio. It is very difficult to interpret what a random urine creatinine level means without knowing the microalbumin level and looking at the ratio. Lastly, whoever ordered this test should be able to explain why they ordered it and what the results mean. Please reply with more information or follow up with your doctor. Take care. ...Read more

My 14y/o daughter is type1dm. Her microalbumin w/create ratio is high 36.her creatinine and micro albumin are normal levels.is this something to worry?

My 14y/o daughter is type1dm. Her microalbumin w/create ratio is high 36.her creatinine and micro albumin are normal levels.is this something to worry?

Unclear question: I understand that your daughter has type I diabetes and she has protein in her urine. If that is correct, it not an urgent matter, but protein in urine portends kidney disease. It can be moderated by better glucose control and medication. It would be prudent to discuss it with your doctor. ...Read more

Microalbumin ur <0.5 Creatinine ur 12.5 Ratio Unable to caculate. Is this normal?

Yes: The urine microalbumin to creatinine ratio is a measure of protein in the urine. It is a marker of kidney disease and of vascular (blood vessel) disease. Less than 30 is considered normal. Above 300 in diabetics is considered diabetic nephropathy (diabetic kidney disease). In between is considered borderline. If the microalbumin in your urine is too little to be able to calculate a ratio, good! ...Read more

Good or bad? CREATININE, URINE 292.9 (no ref range provided) However my MICROALBUMIN/CREATININE and MICROALBUMIN, was completely normal.

Microalbuminuria: As long as your microalbumin-to-creatinine ratio is normal (less than 30), then you're considered normal, at least no microalbuminuria. This is standard screening for those w/diabetes. ACE inhibitors & ARBs (blood pressure drugs) can lower risk of developing kidney failure. So can optimal sugar control (aiming for A1c less than 7). Other way to assess kidney function is eGFR calculated from creati ...Read more

My microalbumin/creatinine level was 40.7. It should be below a 30. What can I do do reduce it??

Microalbuminuria: A person of known age, gender and ethnicity notes my microbe/Cr ratio is high. What can I do to reduce it? ANS: 1. Find the cause and that the cause such as DM or HTN. 2. Eat less salt as high diet worsens Microalb. Mostly because it lowers BP. Get the DASH book ISBN: 0-7434-1007-6 eISBN-13: 978-1-43914-059-8 Do for 1 month and retest urine. Also test same U 4 Na & K to be certain u r DASHing ...Read more

What are the creatinine spot and microalbumin urine tests for?

What are the creatinine spot and microalbumin urine tests for?

UACR: Urine albumin to creatine ratio is a spot urine test that measures how much protein (i.e. albumin) the kidneys are spilling into urine. Albumin (or protein) in the urine is a marker of chronic kidney disease. Normal UACR is ...Read more

I have a low anion gap, low estGFR, a high Microalbumin/Creatinine ratio, HA1C and a high ALT. Any concerns/thoughts?

Diabetic kidney: These are signs of emerging diabetic kidney disease and likely fatty liver from diabetes. Is concerning. High Microalbumin/creatinine ratio indicates albumin leak into urine from overt diabetic kidney change. The low eGFR indicates kidney impairment. The low anion gap reflects low albumin in blood and would indicate high spillage of albumin into urine. High A1c indicates poor glucose control. ...Read more
