Screening test: The ratio of the components on this study look for evidence of higher than normal calcium excretion. At 5, the expeccted ratio of calcium to creatinine would be .42 while the numbers you cite give a ratio of .73. This suggests higher calcium loss.It can be seen in a variety of conditions.Confirmatory tests may include a 24 hour urine collection.Timing of your followup is adequate. ...Read more

Repeat X 2-3: You are taking medication for high blood pressure, high cholesterol & diabetes--not an uncommon combination in middle age. I don't believe any of these medications are causing a trace of blood in urine. Usually, only a trace means nothing...a few red blood cells from urinary tract voided with urine. At minimum: repeat urine test 2-3 times. If blood persists, do bladder/kidney/prostate tests. ...Read more

I had blood in my urine could it be that I'm taking calcium? I also had pain on my right upper back I was told it was kidney stone. Is this true?

I had blood in my urine could it be that I'm taking calcium? I also had pain on my right upper back I was told it was kidney stone. Is this true?

Is that so?: If an imaging study was performed that showed you have a kidney stone, then that's probably why you have the blood in your urine. If there's no imaging study, you don't know if it's a kidney stone or not, and getting imaged would probably be worthwhile. Why are you taking calcium? I can't recommend it as a general 'women's health' measure especially if there's a question of nephrolithiasis. ...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

As answered earlier: A spot urinary calcium to creatinine ratio of 2.4/3.3 is .72, which is high for age and means more calcium is being lost than normal. 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

Litholink report shows mild CaP stone risk.Urine calcium 329mg/day.Blood calcium&PTH normal.Causes? Diet advice? No fam history of calciuria or stones

Remember: I've worked with you in regards to your stone questions but the hypercalciuria without evidence of hyperparathyroidism or chronic acidemia(as hasn't been found in your testing) suggests this is idiopathic hypercalciuria(it's rather common in calcium stone formers. ...Read more

Could high calcium in the blood and intake of levothyroxine for hypothyroid be cause of strong foul odor in urine? I drink ~3 6oz cups of water a day

Unlikely: Neither high calcium nor levo. Will cause foul odor. Most common cause of dark, strong urine is dehydration. You should be drinking minimum of 100 ounces of fluids/day or enough to keep urine color fairly clear, not only to help lower calcium but to prevent kidney stones . Other causes of foul urine are UTI and certain foods and meds. A urinalysis and culture can determine if UTI present. ...Read more

Diet Sprite: Here's any easy tip. Drink a lot of diet sprite. Why diet? --no calories. Why sprite? Cheap way to get citrates and citric acid which decrease calcium and oxalate supersaturation. Plus the volume increases urine output. Several glasses a day can help. Other rich in citrate drinks can also be used. ...Read more

Blood calcium's been high & normal,Vitamin D low,PTH-40.TSH 1.2 & 2.5.My urine calcium 625. Doc thinks I tampered w/it.Far from true.What is going on?

I suspect...: High urine calcium is from primary Hyperparathyroidism. I don't know your calcium but your PTH should be lower than 40 if your calcium is high. I would consider an evaluation by an endocrinologist with Hyperparathyroidism experience. ...Read more

Rheumatologist : I recommend you see a rheumatologist for evaluation of tour joint complaints. A rheumatologist will review your history and perform a physical exam.

Can high calcium and potassium in blood taken 4 days after contrast CT scan be caused by the contrast? Normal creatine and urine test

Can high calcium and potassium in blood taken  4 days after contrast CT scan be caused by the contrast? Normal  creatine and urine test

Yes: Newer contrast today withnon-ionic iodonated contrast has less potential for side effects compared to the older generation of contrast. However, contrast-induced nephropathy can occur within anywhere from 1-5 days, with incidence of 0-40% depending on your risk factors, such as pre-existing diabetes, metformin usage. Potassium and calcium levels can increase due to decreased kidney function. ...Read more
