Normal Creatinine Level For Living 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
The kidneys are paired organs that lie on either side of the vertebral column. Part of their critical functions include the excretion of urine and removal of nitrogenous wastes products from the blood. They regulate acid-base, electrolyte, fluid balance and blood pressure. Through hormonal signals, the kidneys control the ...Read more
Creatinine levels consistently low for adult life, typical range is .48 to .52- All kidney, urine, blood tests normal- any reason for concern?
One: A normal creatinine level should be around 1. A trick of the trade regarding creatinine is to divide 100% by the value, and then that gives you an idea of how much kidney function you have. For instance, if you have a creatinine of 2, then divide 100% by 2: you are running on 50% kidney function. The fact that you have one kidney and have diabetes does not change the "normal" number. ...Read more
Chances for a 60 yr m with single diabetic kidney ( albumin creatinine ratio 139) with tight glucose and BP control ending in renal failure?Roughly?
Chances: Your elevated albumin/creatinine ratio indicates that you have proteinuria. You should ask you physician to send you to a nephrologist for a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance and proteinuria (p). Patients who have higher levels of p, have a higher incidence of renal, cardiac and neurological complications than those with lower p. Drugs that lower BP and p are ace-i's and arb's. Ask your md. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Isn't it impossible for someone to have end stage renal failure with consistently normal bun and creatine blood levels and only protien in urine?
Most likely yes: The diagnosis depends on multiple factors including the likelihood of improvement with treatment. If there can be no improvement and there is severe protienuria due to glomerular malfunction, it is possible to be labeled end-stage before a significant change in creatinine or BUN has occurred. ...Read more
BUN of 10 with creatinine of 1.05
year ago BUN of 12 creatinine .89.
Now have low bun/creatine level
and GFR of 58. Urine and all other lab's normal.
See below: You should consult with a nephrologist to try and determine the cause.Low GFR means loss of kidneys ability to remove waste from the body, and there are many causes and possibility of reversibility or management of preventing further decrease in fucntion is important. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Spot Urine creatinine rising...has gone from 15 mg to 121mg ...can't find normal range? Is that abnormal? Trace protein Serum creatinine was normal.
CREATININE0.46Low .....In Range High0.50-1.05 mg/dL BUN/CREATINI...30High....... In Range High6-22 (calc)Why need for MRI with contrast?
No precise answer: The creatinine test is a surrogate for the more precise measurement of kidney function called gfr--glomerular filtration rate. The creatinine can vary based on donor and recipient gender, age and size, as well as some medical conditions most recipients with very good kidney function have a GFR between 40-70 cc/min and a serum creatinine between 1-2 mg/dl. ...Read more
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
Good or bad? CREATININE, URINE 292.9 (no ref range provided) However my MICROALBUMIN/CREATININE and MICROALBUMIN, was completely normal.
Microalbuminuria: As long as your microalbumin-to-creatinine ratio is normal (less than 30), then you're considered normal, at least no microalbuminuria. This is standard screening for those w/diabetes. ACE inhibitors & ARBs (blood pressure drugs) can lower risk of developing kidney failure. So can optimal sugar control (aiming for A1c less than 7). Other way to assess kidney function is eGFR calculated from creati ...Read more
72 yr old male, with diabetes and hbp... Kidney funct. Normal, elev. Microalbumin and microalb. Creatinine, high hemoglobin a1c. Do I have kidney dis?
Yes: By definition, if your creatinine is elevated, you have kidney disease. When we calculate your kidney fucntion, we take into consideration your weight and age. An elevated hb a1c suggests poor blood sugar control. Although it is not directly related to kidney function poor glycemic control, a persistently elevated a1c may contribute to a decline in renal function. Please talk to your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How to reduce serum creatinine and blood urea level for 62 yr old male
right now the readings are:
serum creatinine ---> 2.1
blood urea --->67?
High creatinine: You need to see a nephroloigist (n) for a history, physical examination and lab studies. You need a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance and protein determination. You also need more blood work and a renal ultrasound to see the size and morphology of your kidneys. If you have some obstruction of your urinary tract, lowering of you elevated levels may be possible. See a n for more infoirmation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Filter, toxins: Dialysis does the work of kidney- removing fluids andtoxins.Electrolytes move along the concentration gradient, so toxins which are high in the blood, goes to the dialysate solution.Creatinine is removed from the blood during dialysis, so these levels are low in the patient after dialysis. ...Read more
Low creatinine serum, high creatinine clearance and normal urine cret at age 21. Totally sedentary lifestyle with high protein diet. What's thr prob?
Kidney problem?: With the information you provided, I do not think you have a problem with your kidneys. Creatinine is an indication of your kidney function and, just as important, is gives an estimation of your muscle mass. A high creatinine clearance may be seen with uncontrolled diabetes, which you do not have. Speak to the physician who ordered these tests on you for more information, he knows you best. ...Read more
How high?: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, it would have been helpful to know the actual creatinine and eGFR values. If these are abnormal if would be prudent to consult a nehprologist so that a treatable entity is not overlooked. ...Read more
