My Creatinine Level Is 1 3
My father has a creatinine level of 1.3 .Usually ranges b/n 1.2 -1.5. Urea around 40..He manages diet so he always stays in this range.I s he normal?
Normal creatinine: One's serum creatinine level is dependent on one's age, body weight, race and sex. To get an exact idea of how kidney is functioning, you need to have a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance done. See a neprhologist to have this done to see how well your one kidney is working. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have been on metosartan 50mg for over three years. Can this cause elevation in my blood creatinine levels?
My uncle has high level of creatinine and one kidney works 25 pct and the other at 50 pct. He is 78. Any trestment suggestions?
Control and prevent.: Treatment is aimed at controlling the underlying disease which is causing his dysfunction ( diabetes, hypertension, etc.) and in preventing further damage to the kidneys by avoiding any kidney toxic medications and in potentially taking appropriate medications such as angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors. Sounds like you have already talked to someone about this. ...Read more
How much does creatinine blood level fluctuate in time in one person, within a year? What everything can influence it?
Creatinine level : Should remain stable in a year or long period of time. It gets worse or increases in value when there's kidney problem, dehydration, adverse effects of hypertension, diabetes, medications, IV contrast dyes, creatinine products, autoimmune conditions, muscle breakdown/rhabdomyolysis, heart/liver or kidney failure etc. http://www.livestrong.com/creatinine-serum/. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Should I be concerned if my S.Creatinine level rises from 1.02 mg/dl to 1.12 mg/dl in one months time if ANA is positive?
Follow it: Your history gives me no reason to think you have lupus. You might have taken ibuprofen, put on some extra muscle, or otherwise gotten your creatinine up for some reason. I trust your urinalysis is normal. I'd urge you to stay fit and not fret over small changes in lab values. ...Read more
My dad is diabietc for the last 18 years n from the last three years his creatinine level is increasing and now it has reached 6.5...Plez suggest?
My father had a radical nephrectomy 3 years back. He lost one kidney.
Recently tests shown his creatinine level 2.0. Not diabetic. How to lower down?
Follow-up: If dad is a well-muscled man (which raises creatinine well above "normal range" for today's couch potatoes) and we already know why he lost half his nephrons, this may not be an issue. I trust he is being followed up and that folks are watching for focal-segmental glomerulosclerosis / hyperfiltration lesion that's fairly common in kidneys that lose their partner. Don't try to treat a lab value. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is muscular exercising to strengthen arms and legs in someone with one kidney, creatinine 1.49 & eGFR 42 harmful because it may increase creat.level?
No: It's good for you. In fact, if you're working out and feeling okay at age 68 with a creatinine of 1.49, I seriously doubt you have anything wrong with your kidneys beyond a bit of age-related wear-and-tear, or any reason to be concerned. When I was lifting daily as a young doctor, my creatinine ran 1.6-1.7. Hit the gym and treasure the time there. ...Read more
Hello doctor, my brother in law has serious kidney issue. He is diabetic, high serum creatinine level 8, vomiting, now on dialysis since one month?
My height is 6'3" & weight is 100.3 kgs where as my creatinine level is 1.9, is it ok? If its not how to control it?
Seems a bit high,,: You are a big man, and your creatinine can be higher due to a large proportion of muscle mass in your body which is likely since you are large. It may also be higher from impaired renal function, and other lab readings, like BUN (blood urinary nitrogen), and sodium would indicate this, along with symptoms like edema or swelling in extremities. See your doctor for a complete work-up to be sure. ...Read more
Kidney function: Creatinine is just one measure of kidney function. "Normal" depends upon your lab so it's best to ask doc for results from lab that include reference range. These days, in the States, we ask our labs to calculate eGFR which gives better assessment of kidney function after taking into account age, gender, weight & ethnicity (https://goo.gl/gPIRhM). Young men w/more muscle tend to have higher Creati ...Read more
Don't Rx a lab: As your age, and especially if you're still fairly athletic and decently-muscled, this could well be normal for you. Life's difficult enough without trying to treat lab values. You're not a kidney patient unless there's other evidence of kidney troubles (inability to concentrate urine, abnormal urinalysis, significant proteinuria). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: An elevated creatinine cannot be interpreted by itself. A physician needs to know more about how long it has been elevated and more about your medical history to be able to comment. In order to determine stage of chronic kidney disease, the glomerular filtration rate must be calculated (creatinine is only a part of this calculation). ...Read more
33 year old husbands blood creatinine level is 1.18( ref. Range is 0.50-1.20). Is this on the high end of normal, and should we be worried?
Creatinine of 1.18: You should ask your physician for her thoughts on your husband's creatinine (c) level. It is still normal and would be nice to know if were the same level last year, or if it were increasing. At this level, in the absence of an increase c level, i would speak to his physician and not be too concerned. If it is increasing see a nephrologist for better management of it. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
