What does it mean when random urine creatinine is high?

What does it mean when random urine creatinine is high?

This is normal: Creatinine is normally excreted in the urine. The concentration of creatinine by itself means nothing other than the kidneys are doing their job. Blood creatinine will tell you better how well the kidneys are working.

Urine (Definition)

Urine is the product of the kidneys, which is produced to eliminate the waste products of metabolism, manage body fluid balance, &maintain acid-base balance. The blood is first filtered by the kidneys, and the composition of the resulting fluid is then altered depending on the body's needs. It is composed of mostly water, and breakdown products from blood cells impart ...Read more

Kindly interpret: my random urine albumin: less than 5.0 mg/l, random urine creatinine: less than 15.0 mg/dl. What is my albuminl:creatinine ratio?

Check again.: These readings seem more like those in serum although they are far below normal levels for Albumin and above normal for creatinine. The normal levels are 3.5-5.0 g/dl and <1.5 mg/dl for serum Albumin and creatinine respectively. The urine protein levels are <150 mg/day and creatinine is 1.0-1.6 g/day. The normal range of urine output is 0.4-3.0 l/day. These are low normal at most so recheck.

What does it mean when vma random urine creatinine is high?

What does it mean when vma random urine creatinine is high?

C prior answers: The random urine creatinine can give an approximation of urine function. Vma. .. Perhaps you are referring here to chemical in the urine when, if high, may indicate an tumor known as pheochromocytoma, which is benign, but produces a substance which can cause huge increases in blood pressure, that can have serious consequences.

What is a normal urine creatinine level?

No such thing: We don't publish a reference range as people would worry. The more muscle mass you have, the more creatinine you put out daily. The level in turn is also a function of how much water you drink -- whether the urine is concentrated or dilute. And there's no illness for which increased or decreased production is a marker. If you do find a published range, ignore it.

Should I be concerned about urine creatinine levels over 165 mg/dl and high protein levels?

Should I be concerned about urine creatinine levels over 165 mg/dl and high protein levels?

Depends: It depends how high the protein levels are when they were checked. High urine protein levels are often a marker of kidney disease. High blood protein levels can be seen in multiple myeloma. This is concerning, and I would ask your physician for additional information.

My urine creatinine was 20 when 4 months ago it was 73, my BUN level was 7. What could be causing this?

This means nothing: Urine creatinine varies with your hydration. You excrete a certain amount daily depending mostly on your muscle mass. Drink twice as much water, and you cut your creatinine in half. It's worth measuring only as a standard against which to compare other elements measured in your urine. A "low BUN" means nothing. You're not a kidney patient. I'm sorry no one explained this to you.

Why is it so hard to find out normal urine creatinine and calcium levels for a 5 yr old if 3, 3 creatinine, 2.4 calcium. What is norm? Shud I worry?

Why is it so hard to find out normal urine creatinine and calcium levels for a 5 yr old if 3, 3 creatinine, 2.4 calcium. What is norm? Shud I worry?

Worthless number: The total creatinine put out varies primarily with the total mass of skeletal muscle. You'll never find a "normal" value for either. The concentration is even more variable as it depends on how much water was drunk. The urine creatinine is measured only as something to compare with a semi-constant, the creatinine. People aren't numbers, and we do a disservice focusing on labs apart from history.

Urine protein randm: 11.7, urine creatinine randm: 304 high (ref 58-161), protein/creatinine ratio: 38.44. What does tht mean? Do I need more test?

Urine protein randm: 11.7, urine creatinine randm: 304 high (ref 58-161), protein/creatinine ratio: 38.44. What does tht mean? Do I need more test?

Proteinuria: You have proteinuria (p) and the first thing is to have a 24 hour urine collection to see the amount of protein in your urine and to assess your kidney function. Have a renal ultrasound to assess kidneys' size depending on the p, I would send off blood for aso, anca 2, complement c3 and c4, hiv, hepatitis b antibody to see if a cause could be found for the p, if not a kidney biopsy may be needed.

Should I be concerned with an Urine Creatinine level of 518.5 mg/dL, but I was dehydrated at the time of the test (just finished running 3 miles)?

Urine creatinine: No - if this was a 24 hour level - expect 14-26 mg per kg for a male fo that would be on the low side. If it was a "spot" urine - its going to be off due to the dehydration from running. I would repeat it if needed when you haven't run and are hydrated.

Is 3822.00 mmol/l normal 24- hour urine creatinine? Is 200.1ug/24h normal cortisol level for 24 hour urine test?

See below: Normal urine creatinine (24-hour sample) values range from 7-21 mmol/day (males) and 5-16 mmol/day (females). Results depend greatly on your age and amount of lean body mass. Normal urine 'free' cortisol (24-hour sample) is usually less than 50 ug (=mcg).

Random sample: urine protein 31mg/l urine albumin 5.00mg/l urine creatinine 3.894mmol/l urine albumin creatinine:ratio 1.3mg/mmol is this normal?

Random sample: urine protein 31mg/l urine albumin 5.00mg/l urine creatinine 3.894mmol/l urine albumin creatinine:ratio 1.3mg/mmol is this normal?

Is this a test?: Slight variation in the reports from different laboratories does exist. So, please refer to the attached normal range for interpretation. I'm sure there is such information for you to reconcile. If any doubt, talk and confirm with the attending doctor. Best. ..

My lab results show high levels of protein in urine 27 mg, urine creatinine 316.3 mg but levels of protein/creatinine ratio 90 mg. What does it mean?

Ur Protein/Cr ratio: The urine protein to urine creatinine ratio is an estimate of the 24hr urine protein. It is less cumbersome and quick. A urine protein to creatinine ratio of 0.15 or less would be consdered normal. For example urine protein of 30 and urine creatinine of 300 would be a upc of 0.1.

My lab results show high levels of protein in urine 27 mg, urine creatinine 316.3 mg but levels of protein/creatinine ration 90 mg. What does it mean?

My lab results show high levels of protein in urine 27 mg, urine creatinine 316.3 mg but levels of protein/creatinine ration 90 mg. What does it mean?

Protein in urine: The results mean that you probably have a lot of protein in your urine. To determine how much, you need to see a nephrologist and have a 24 hour urine collection to assess the amount of protein in your urine as well as your renal function. Depending on the amount of protein in your urine, you may need to have additional blood tests to see if you have any type of glomeulonephritis or diabetes.

Low rbc, high urea nitrogenBUN, high urine osmolality, high urine creatinine random, high UA sodium random, ab. Urine epithelial cell, k etones, ur. Mucus?

Low rbc, high urea nitrogenBUN, high urine osmolality, high urine creatinine random, high UA sodium random, ab. Urine epithelial cell, k etones, ur. Mucus?

Dehydrated: 39 F from Indy of unknown ethnicity medical or drugs notes low rbc high bun and high urine Na creat. ANS: sounds like anemia and dehydration or renal disease. The latter is often due to eating too much salt and HTN and choosing the wrong grandparents. Your Dr knows you best so ask them.
