Potential Complications Of A High Creatinine Level
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
Hi i'm rami
my mom have a high creatinine level 8.57 in the heamatology report and i want to help her, she's 53, what to do to reduce it?Plz help, thanks
High creatinine: A creatinine of 8.57 would not be on a hematology report, it would be on a chem panel. The lab should have called the doctor to report this elevated creatinine level. Have your mother speak to her doctor and get referred to a nephrologist. It seems that she would be rather ill with an untreated creatinine leve of 8.57 mg/dl. Get her some from a nephrologist to see if she can be helped. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Safe foods include grain foods, pasta (no sauce), bread, rice, and most vegetables. Avoid tomato and potato and citrus fruits. See doctor and dietitian as soon as possible. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Upper limit : Creatinine of 1.2 is the upper limit of normal. More important is for you see your estimated glomerular filtration rate. Creatinine levels depend primarily on renal function, muscle mass and to some extent on state of hydration. You should discuss this result with your doctor at your next visit, . ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Azotemia: High blood urea nitrogen and creatinine together. Please keep in mind that today's "normal creatinine / normal estimated gfr" make all well-muscled men into instant kidney patients, and that eating a big steak can raise your BUN above the reference range. Common sense and a basic knowledge of biology's central to understanding labs. ...Read more
Kidney function: Creatinine is just one measure of kidney function. "Normal" depends upon your lab so it's best to ask doc for results from lab that include reference range. These days, in the States, we ask our labs to calculate eGFR which gives better assessment of kidney function after taking into account age, gender, weight & ethnicity (https://goo.gl/gPIRhM). Young men w/more muscle tend to have higher Creati ...Read more
I've had a creatinine level of 1.8 and 1.9. Is this considered high? If so, what needs to be done to bring it down?
A bit elevated: An elevated creatinine can mean that the kidneys are working less efficiently to eliminate waste products from your body. This can be especially important if you have diabetes or high blood pressure - the two leading causes of kidney disease. If you have either of these underlying conditions, get them under control asap. Ask your doctor about your "egfr" result - another kidney blood test. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Co-tango usually: The BUN is usually 10 times the creatinine. When the creatinine goes up, the BUN goes up similarly to roughly keep this proportion, in most kidney disease states. The notable exception is when the creatinine goes up say by 20% to 1.2, but the BUN goes up *5 to 50. This strongly suggests a pre-renal state, commonly dehydration. Mild elevations of BUN with normal creatinines aren't of concern. ...Read more
They mean...: High WBC with abnormal neutrophils suggests your body is fighting hard for infection for you, and high creatinine indicates impaired kidney working ability now. But how do these numbers hold for the future? That will depend on the result of follow-up clinically along with further tests as needed. So, work with doctor closely. Best wish ... Always. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
