I am told my Glomerular filtration Rate is 57.6. Does this indicate Kidney disease? Creatinine is 1.0 BUN is 20 total Protein is 7.0 I am 55 w/f

I am told my Glomerular filtration Rate is 57.6. Does this indicate Kidney disease? Creatinine is 1.0 BUN is 20 total Protein is 7.0 I am 55 w/f

GFR: Your Estimated filtration rate is borderline. This is not a problem itself. The important concern is whether disease exists that might be progressive. Serum creatinine of 1.0 is "normal". So is serum creatinine 1.1. However, creatinine relates to muscle mass. If you are small muscled as a. 55 yo woman, then creatinine of 1.1 or 1.0 may indicate some minor impairment in its excretion. ...Read more

Blood Sugar (Definition)

The blood sugar concentration or blood glucose level is the amount of glucose (sugar) present in the blood of a human or animal. The body naturally tightly regulates blood glucose levels as a part of metabolic homeostasis. Glucose is the primary source of energy for the body's cells, and blood lipids (in the form of fats and oils) are primarily ...Read more

My 6 year old son has a high glucose/serum 106, bun level 22, 
bun/creatinine ratio 43, triglycerides 84, is this normal to be alittle high in range?

Here are some...: You should refer your questions & concerns to his pediatrician who possesses more of his pertinent information than anyone online. Besides it is useful to always correlate the lab findings with individual clinical profile and compare with prior tests serially. To make a question easy to answer, always stress the specifics & relevance with sequence of events in the question. Best wish... ...Read more

My Glucose, Serum is 5 mg/dL BUN/ Creatinine Ratio is 22 CO2 is 9 mmol/L AST 54 IU/L ALT 54 IU/L What does all this indicate?

My Glucose, Serum is 5 mg/dL
BUN/ Creatinine Ratio is 22
CO2 is 9 mmol/L
AST 54 IU/L
ALT 54 IU/L
What does all this indicate?

Mistake?: Normal BG - 60-100 range. BG of 5 mg/dl produces profound neurologic disturbance. Please recheck that value. BUN could indicate mild dehydration. CO2 -really bicarbonate- is low indicating excess acid in blood stream. AST and ALT both mildly / nonspecifically elevated. Line by line interpretation of labs -not very helpful. Need to know context in which they were drawn in order to understand. ...Read more

My 2007 med record says: glucose 104, bun 25, creatinine 1.5, bun/creat ratio 17, egfr 58. Any danger in any of those, i'm scared :-(

My 2007 med record says: glucose 104, bun 25, creatinine 1.5, bun/creat ratio 17, egfr 58. Any danger in any of those, i'm scared :-(

Of what?: This is from 2007, which is 6 years ago and therefore of limited significance. Newer results are needed. Your creatinine is very slightly high for someone your age, but may have been falsely elevated due to dehydration. Don't be afraid, go get more current results and discuss them w/your doctor. ...Read more

My creatinine serum is 0.73 and I've been told this is "low"...should I be concerned? My BUN/creatinine was 23. Should I be concerned healthwise?

Okay,...: Serum creatinine reflects personal lean muscle mass; so, your lean muscle may be on low side. The bottom line is your personal functionality in managing the tasks & chores of daily living for survival, growth, and continuation. If adequate, leave it alone and live on; if not, go for a comprehensive evaluation & counseling. ...Read more

What does a high bun/creatinine and high glucose mean?

What does a high bun/creatinine and high glucose mean?

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

Which etiology results in an elevated bun level with a normal serum creatinine level?

Which etiology results in an elevated bun level with a normal serum creatinine level?

Multiple causes: BUN is a breakdown of ingested protein, but becomes elevated compared to creatine, in cases of increased catabolism (breakdown). Such things as a high protein diet, use of some steroids, some infections, or volume depletion may commonly raise BUN levels. In a hospital setting, tube feeding, tpn, GI bleeding, infections, decreased flow to the kidneys, and use of steroids are frequent contributors. ...Read more
