My Creatinine Level Is High
It depends/can vary.: The standard reference ranges for serum creatinine are 0.5 to 1.0 mg/dl (about 45-90 ?mol/l) for women and 0.7 to 1.2 mg/dl (60-110 ?mol/l) for men. These can vary. For example, a bodybuilder can have a creatinine level of 2.0 and be healthy, while an elderly female can have a value of 1.2 and have severe renal disease. ...Read more
Lab results: The lab results you mention, low creatinine high and egfr is low are consistent with a person with chronic kidney disease. The co2 in chronic kidney disease is not high and can be low. The high bun-creatinine ratio is suggestive of a dehydrated state. Please provide the actual numbers of the lab values you stated for a better answer. ...Read more
My micro albumin/ Creatinine urine ratio is high at 40.4. But my micro albumin is 12.0 and my creatinine is 29.7, both low. So is it really "high"?
My mother has high levels of pth low vitamin d, normal creatinine and elevated levels of urea, what does this mean?
Vitamin D deficiency: Vitamin d deficiency can result in increased secretion of parathyroid hormone which attempts to maintain a normal serum calcium. Correction of the d deficiency should result in a normal parathyroid hormone level. High urea could result from dehydration. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hdl is primarily regulated by genetics but can be increased by exercise, omega 3 fatty acids , weight loss and to a small extent wine .The best way to raise your HDL level is by increasing your aerobic exercise to at least 3-5 times a week for at least 20 minutes. Eat fish high in omega 3 fatty acids, epa and dha or take omega 3 capsules. ...Read more
Low vitamin D level (19), High phosphorus level (4.5), High PTH level (70). What could be the cause of this? Serum Calcium level is normal.
Hypothyroidism: The actual thyroid hormone is T4 and t3 (liothyronine). When they are low, TSH elevates, but how high is somewhat variable, and "high tsh" per se is not dangerous. A low t4/t3 (liothyronine) can be dangerous; TSH is a good marker of thyroid function, but often it is necessary to measure ft4 or t3 (liothyronine). A mild elevation of TSH (eg. 4-10) is often without any symptoms and a normal ft4. ...Read more
Does a low phoshorus level and low complement C3 but normal bun and creatin level mean kidney failure?
No: Kidney failure is defined by changes in bun/cr and more correctly GFR (glomerular filtration rate) over time. A normal BUN and cr is reassuring. Usually the phosphorus is high with kidney failure. A low complement (c3) level relates to the immune system and a possible deficiency there. ...Read more
5 year old with high levels of bilirubin and alkaline phosphatase, high bun/creatinine ratio and high MCV and mch. Low levels of co2 and creatine?
Not enough info: Unfortunately, other than bloodwork results, no more information is provided. That's not enough to tell what's going on. Either try to provide more info or better off consult with a physician locally. ...Read more
Probably not: A slightly elevated total IgA level is rarely significant by itself, and may result from recent infection or may just be your personal normal level. If the level so incredibly high that it is greater than all the other blood proteins, or if accompanied by recurrent or severe infections, then it could suggest a problem. If you have further questions, see your doctor or a clinical immunologist. ...Read more
Probably normal: Creatine kinase (CK), also known as creatine phosphokinase (CPK) is an enzyme made by muscle tissues, including the heart muscle. Doctors most often are concerned with high levels of CK, which may indicate muscle damage. "Normal range" varies by laboratory, but a level of 49 is probably within the normal range of most laboratories. ...Read more
