Does a low phoshorus level and low complement C3 but normal bun and creatin level mean kidney failure?

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

My doctors says my creatin level is 1.6.  She is not concerned says this may be my normal.  51 yo male 6'4" tall weigh 165.  Should i be concerned?

Outside normal range: The kidney function (by creatinine clearance) is slightly below expected. May vary due to hydration status or other factors. Would consider having test repeated and if still abnormal, would consider nephrology consultation. ...Read more

What is the normal creatine level in general population?

What is the normal creatine level in general population?

0.6 to 1.2: Normal creatinine is 0.6-1,2. Body mass, pregnancy, muscle mass, age, sex and state of hydration can effect the value. A large muscular man may have a higher creatinine than a small old lady with little muscle. Weight lifters with large muscle masses can have sometimes creatinines which exceed normal levels but when renal function is measured in other ways function is normal. ...Read more

What is the normal creatine level for someone with one kidney?

What is the normal creatine level for someone with one kidney?

Not reliable: The creatinine will still likely be in the normal range, if the remaining kidney is normal. It's is because creatinine is not a sensitive marker for kidney disease, and much loss has to occur before the creat becomes abnormal. A 24h for creatinine clearance is a better indicator of renal function. ...Read more

I am 38yrs old woman I have no b, p or sugar but my creatine level is 1mg is it normal?

Creatinine levels: For women of your age, assuming "normal" pre-test conditions (i.e., no strenuous exercise, less than 8 oz of meat/protein, proper hydration, and no tea/coffee) , the normal level is 0.4-1.0 mg/dl. If you are concerned about your level being at the high end of normal, you can always repeat in 6 months, with strict adherence to the pre-test conditions. ...Read more

I have creatine level 1.6 mg   , can I get back to normal or maintian level , is this a major problem?

Need to determine: The cause of the elevation. Creatinine of 1.6 is elevated, you should consult your doctor to determine the cause, follow the directions about diet and medication. Without knowing more about your history, physical examination, lab and imaging findings, it is not feasible to provide meaningful opinion about the reversibility of the elevation. You should take this seriously to avoid further damage. ...Read more

Normal white count and a high level of creatine kinase. What illness could this indicate?

Maybe none: If you exercise, you ck can be very high -- many times the upper limit of normal. The normal range is for couch potatoes. I'm glad you asked, but no lab test means much in isolation. Best to ask your physician and see what matches with your symptoms and lifestyle. ...Read more

I've done blood test today and my Creatine Kinase level shown is 322 IU/L. What does that indicate? How can I reduce this CK level to normal range?

I've done blood test today and my  Creatine Kinase level shown is 322 IU/L. What does that indicate? How can I reduce this CK level to normal range?

Muscle issue: Creatine Kinase is an enzyme in muscles and any issue affecting the muscles, including exercise, can raise CK levels. You need to address the cause of the elevation. You may consult this site and then discuss the matter with your doctor who ordered the test. http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/8336 ...Read more

I am a kidney transplant patient. My creatine has always been between 1.4 - 1.8 is this a normal level?

I am a kidney  transplant  patient.   My creatine has always been between 1.4 - 1.8 is this a normal level?

Not normal: While it isn't a "normal" serum creatinine (or perfect kidney function) that is to be expected. It is very rare that a transplant recipient with a single kidney obtains the same level of function as a healthy person with two normal kidneys. That being said, if you've had your transplant for 5 or more years and no change in function... Then you are doing great. ...Read more

I have increased urination since taking Losartan. Is this common and does it mean my creatine levels are increased? Will levels return to normal?

I have increased urination since taking Losartan.  Is this common and does it mean my creatine levels are increased?

Will levels return to normal?

Losartan acts: indirectly to increase blood flow to the kidneys, increasing kidney efficiency. If you were retaining body fluid, in theory, you may experience a temporary increase in urination as your fluid balance is restored. Creatinine, not creatine, is an indirect measure of kidney function. If your kidney function was normal b4 starting losartin, it shouldn't be affected by your BP med. ...Read more
