My blood test report showed egfr as 72ml and creatinine level as 1.38mg. Worried that my egfr is low for my age. How to increase egfr or is it normal?
Kidney insufficiency: On the surface, these blood test results suggest a significant degree of impairment of the function of your kidneys. This needs to be our first presumption, unfortunately. You need to follow up with your doctor for blood testing, urine testing and ultrasound to start.
What do you suggest if I'm aged 53 my blood urea level is 32 mgs and seram creatitine is 0.8 mgs is it normal?
Sounds okay: The urea nitrogen may be a wee bit up because you had a nice steak dinner.
Hi Doctor, My father is aged 73. His creatanine level is 6.59, blood urea 380, with normal Na and K+ levels. He's having high BP, and is non-diabetic. Recently, edema was treated with some medication.
Creatine: This is used to test for kidney health. Normal values are 45-90 for women. It is a little high and your doctor should confirm the results. Please see your md. Men have higher numbers due to larger muscle mass.
Elevated: Speak with your doctor about this level. It is important to figure out if you were dehydrated when the labs were drawn. If this is so drink more water and reheck you level. Consider increasing the fluids without caffeine especially on days you exercise. Avoid all the protein drinks and supplements many athletes take. If no improvement consider seeing a nephrologist and control your diabetes.See 1 more doctor answer
High creatinine: You need to see a nephrologist to find out what is causing your elevated creatinine (c) level. The c level is dependent on age, sex, race and weight. Causes of an elevated creatinine are obstruction of the outflow of urine, kidney and drugs that cause renal problems. Go to a nephro, have a 24 hour urine collection for c clearance and protein, have a renal ultrasound and blood work to get a plan.See 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Normal serum creatinine ranges from 0.7- 1.5 mg /dl in many labs, however one should review the normal range in their lab report. Creatinine is a byproduct of muscle metabolism and is excreted by the kidneys. High serum creatinine generally indicate kidney damage.High levels can be seen in muscle damage, people who consume creatine supplements.Review the lab report with md.
Highly abnormal: A level this high would indicate kidney failure. See your doctor asap.
What does it mean if my CREATININE LEVEL is always 118 or 119 uMOL/L? The normal range is 50-120. For the 8th time, my CREA is always 119.
Could just be you: Reference ranges are set for couch-potatoes and if you're a well-muscled man, you'll have creatinine high, often above the "normal". And ranges are set arbitrarily to have a few percent of healthies outside on either end. Keep managing your hypertension and don't worry so much about creatinine.See 1 more doctor answer
Last September 15, my CREATININE is 81.54 uMOL/L. The normal range is 50.0--120.0. This November 9, my CREATININE LEVEL is 124.53. Unsafe?
Here are some. ..: Some fluctuation in the report of a test result may fluctuate reflecting the time of testing and exercise; I would not overly concern such with no practical need to often repeat testing it as long as you've been living healthy and well. Besides, your profile seems suggesting some personal trait of obsession, which needs to be modified & balanced so to live a longer happier life. Of course, ask Doc
For 9 times, my CREATININE level is 119 uMOL/L. The normal range is 50-120. However, yesterday my CREATININE is 81.54. What does this mean?
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.See 1 more doctor answer

It's fine: It depends on your musculiarity. When I was lifting weights daily, my creatinine ran 1.6-1.7. Slim guys tend to run 1.0-1.3.
