Symptoms Of Low Creatinine Levels
There are none: Reference ranges are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside on either side. Low creatinine is never a problem. It's common for a petite lady to be low.
When creatinine serum blood level is low 0.6, does this mean kidney is filtering good. What are muscle wasting symptoms & causes.?
High: Are you sure that your serum creatinine is 40? Levels over 10 are considered very indicative of advanced kidney disease requiring dialysis. Unless you're under treatment for chronic kidney disease, have the lab check your serum creatinine again and discuss this with your physician.See 1 more doctor answer
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.See 1 more doctor answer
What does it mean if your creatinine level is too high 1.16 and your bun/creatinine ratio is very low at a 5?
Why do you ask?: Labs mean nothing in the absence of a clinical history. You might be a vegan bodybuilder. When I was lifting weights every day, my creatinine ran 1.6-1.8. The fellow-pathologists with whom I've discussed it think that reports generated by labs are causing overdiagnosis of renal disease (it's subscience -- "there's an adjustment for race because black people are more muscular.")See 2 more doctor answers
My blood work all came back normal with the exception of my creatinine level, which was 20.0. What does this suggest and why do I not have symptoms?
Labs φ disease: Just because laboratory results are elevated or out of range, does not mean you have disease. Creatinine is a measure kidney function, but there are many things (like hydration, medications, exercise) that can alter the creatinine levels. Having multiple elevations is more significant.
My creatinine levels are low. In dec it was 0.38 and this month it's 0.33. What could cause this? Is this a cause for concern? I had a baby 8 mo. Ago
No concern.: As long as you're feeling well, a creatinine of 0.38 is perfectly acceptable. It is not a concern at all. Enjoy your new baby!
My blood test report showed egfr as 72ml and creatinine level as 1.38mg. Worried that my egfr is low for my age. How to increase egfr or is it normal?
Kidney insufficiency: On the surface, these blood test results suggest a significant degree of impairment of the function of your kidneys. This needs to be our first presumption, unfortunately. You need to follow up with your doctor for blood testing, urine testing and ultrasound to start.
It depends,,,: It depends on the actual levels of BUN and Cr reported along with other lab values. If the Cr (Creatinine) is over 1.5 there might be cause for concern as it would point toward renal impairment, and there'd be other findings. Your other symptoms mentioned, flank pain, blood in urine, and proteinuria also point to a renal issue so see your doctor soon for more tests and treatment of the cause.
What causes extreme low ferrittin levels and reduced RBC distribution, low creatinine levels? . CBC said to be normal, but high MCHC, all other norm
Low ferritin: As long as you are not anemic don't worry, but do get a screen for colon cancer per Normal medical guidelines
I have a high blood Bun level of 23 w/range 10-20 and a low blood Creatinine level of 0.65 w/range of 0.70-1.20. I'm a little confused as to meaning?
Dehydration: Were you dehydrated when the blood was drawn. If you were asked to come fasting, you may not have taken enough water. Dehydration affects BUN more than it affects creatinine. Since creatinine is normal, I would not worry about BUN. At your next test, make sure you drink water in the morning before the blood is drawn.
