Normal Creatin Level
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

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
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'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 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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
