Should I Be Concerned About Creatinine Levels Above Average
I have a high bun/ creatinine level (28) and a low creatinine level (0.5) . Should I be concerned or do something?
BUN/Creat Ratio: I personally would not worry about it since the high ratio is due to a slightly elevated BUN. This might be due to a diet high in non-essential amino acids (nothing to truly be concerned about) or a mild lack of water intake. If you are still concerned, please see your primary doctor and go over all of that with her/him. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Should I be concerned about my rising creatinine levels? In 3 years my values have went .67, .88 to now 1.1. My gfr is 62.
What is the "average" margin of error on a creatinine level test? I know this varies by laboratory, but there must be a general average.
Husbands blood creatinine level is 1.18, reference range is ( 0.50-1.20 mg/dl). Bun/cre ratio is 11.0, range is (10-20 ). Is there anything to be concerned about here?
No Need to Worry: Blood creatinine and bun/cre ratio are measures of kidney function and fluid balance in the body. These numbers are well within range of normal. Of course you should speak with your physician if you have concerns. Clinical correlation to any disorders is the key. If your husband is well, then there is no need to worry. The kidneys are working fine. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My GFR is 49 and my creatinine level is within normal levels at 12. Do i need a second opinion as my gp does not seem to be concerned.
Kidney Disease?: If your GFR was obtained by a 24 hour urine collection for creatinine clearance, you have stage 3 chronic kidney disease (ckd). You should be referred to a nephrologist (n), as at some point you will have some of the chemical abnormalities associated with ckd, these are anemia and elevation of your parathyroid hormone. You will also need to have a renal ultrasound to see the size of your kidneys. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Follow it: Your history gives me no reason to think you have lupus. You might have taken ibuprofen, put on some extra muscle, or otherwise gotten your creatinine up for some reason.

31 white female, 1.2 creatinine level, normal BUN, 82 Prolaction level, 56 GFR should I be concerned?
Prolactin and kidney: Hi. Those are two unrelated conditions. Serum prolactin (PRL) can accumulate in chronic kidney disease (CKD), but your CKD is way too mild to cause that. Ergo, you have hyperprolactinemia. Do you have amenorrhea and galactorrhea? If not, the PRL may be a red herring, and macroprolactinemia should be tested for. Why you fall into the category of Stage 4 CKD is unknown to us. So, eval. PRL and CKD ...Read more
