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?

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.

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
