Renal Failure Leads To This Blood Condition
Kidney failure labs: You would look at the BUN and creatinine (c)levels which would be elevated. C is dependent on the age, sex, race and weight of the patient. You would also expect to see high levels of potassium, phosphorous, and parathyroid hormone in the blood. The carbon dioxide would be low as would be the hemoglobin level. Ask to be sent to a nephrologist for further evaluation and diagnostic studies. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Llisinopril?: hello~ NO it does not GIVE you renal failure. We use it in hypertension and in diabetics because it INCREASES pre-renal blood flow and protects AGAINST renal failure.

High White Count: A high white count usually indicates that a patient has an infection. When your kidneys fail you are more susceptible to infection for a whole bunch of reasons. The consequence is not so much that your blood count is high, but that you likely have an undiagnosed infection and this needs to be investigated by your dialysis doctor/nephrologist or your primary care doctor. ...Read more
How does increase amount of the carbon dioxide in the blood affect kidney and causes renal failure?
Carbon Dioxide : Good question. Your kidneys have many functions. One is to maintain ph balance. When your body accumulates too much carbon dioxide(co2) your kidneys work to eliminate it. Co2 makes your body more acidic. The acidity not only makes your kidneys work harder, but it also makes all body functions less efficient. Over time this can cause kidney failure. This is not a common cause of kidney failure. ...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

I recently had a urine and blood test. Results show egfr @ 53, creatinine @ 1.35 and protein urine @ 123.7. Does this mean renal failure?
Renal failure?: You do not have renal failure. What you have is chronic kidney disease. To find what what your actual GFR is, you need to have a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance and protein, as well as another lab test to get the creatinine at the time of your urine collection. You will also need a renal ultrasound. See a nephrologist for the best treatment of your chronic kidney disease and proteinuria. ...Read more
