Creatinine level is 1.3mg/dl (range:0.8-1.3). bun/creat ratio normal, electrolytes all normal, uric acid normal, urinalysis all normal. Any concern?

Creatinine level is 1.3mg/dl (range:0.8-1.3). bun/creat ratio normal, electrolytes all normal, uric acid normal, urinalysis all normal. Any concern?

No: At your age, kidney function is usually starting to drop of. And/or you may simply be physically fit and decently muscled. When I was lifting weights daily, I ran 1.7-1.8. I see you have hepatitis C and cirrhosis. See if you can get into one of these new studies with the meds that usually cure it. Best wishes. ...Read more

My mother has a bun of 53, creatinine 1.81. bun/creating ratio is 27. electrolytes normal. What does all of this mean?

Kidney concern: Chances are that Mom's kidneys aren't working as well as they should. If she's elderly, this may just be from old infections or high blood pressure, but she'd do well to comply with her physician's guidance. This isn't a great danger to life or an assurance of serious disease to come, and it may simply be the effects of medication -- ibuprofen is famous. But it does need evaluation. ...Read more

What are Test to check kidney function are working 100% or not other than creatinine and urea? As my creatinine increased to 1.1 from 0.75 in 4 months

See below: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, your creatinine is still within the normal range. One additional for kidney function is to check urine for protein leakage.

Hi there. Would just like to know what is the normal range for urea, creatinine and glucose to be in a blood test?

Hi there. Would just like to know what is the normal range for urea, creatinine and glucose to be in a blood test?

They vary but,,: Normal ranges for constituents like these vary slightly from lab to lab, but basically, the ranges should be about 2.0-8.0 mg/dl for men and 1.5-6.9 mg/dl for women for uric acid. Creatinine in serum is generally < 1.5 mg/dl for both men and women, while serum glucose is usually about 75-115 mg/dl for men and women. Blood urea nitrogen has a normal range of 10-20 mg/dl. Hope this helps. ...Read more

My urine test shows creatinine is 1.3. Blood tests show urea 3.5 and persistent low egfr 55. What does it mean? What do I need to do? Feel really ill.

Find cause: Assuming your creatinine is blood level; mine runs 1.5 or so as I'm a muscle kind of guy but it's high for a lady. This old-fashioned pathologist doubts the value of in lab-generated egfr's in the absence of known kidney disease. Anything from serious disease to over-the-counter painkillers can raise creatinine / compromise the kidneys for at least a while. Follow up & consider other causes. ...Read more

Do these test result indicate a kidney problem? Fasting blood glucose : 103, urea: 27, creatinine: 1.5, total cholestrol: 248 triglycerid 308 mg/dL

Do these test result indicate a kidney problem? Fasting blood glucose : 103, urea: 27, creatinine: 1.5, total cholestrol: 248 triglycerid 308 mg/dL

It depends: The creatinine's a little bit high for a lady. When I was working out a lot, mine ran 1.7; unless you're also doing a lot of strength training, your creatinine's high and that's concerning for kidney disease. I'd address the cholesterol and maybe triglycerides as well. If you've had to have laser resurfacing for your acne, you probably need stronger Rx if you're still getting lesions.

Male 58, diabetic since last 12 years, heart patient. Recent kidney test show serum creatinine 1.4. urea, uric acid normal. Is it due to kidney damage?

Male 58, diabetic since last 12 years, heart patient. Recent kidney test show serum creatinine 1.4. urea, uric acid normal. Is it due to kidney damage?

Here are some. ..: Creatinine at 1.4 mg/dl is at its upper limit, which could suggest his renal function has reached its marginal status, which is possible for someone at 58 with heart condition. Fact: Serum creatinine would not change until a loss of some 65% of total renal function. So, maintain adequate hydration, avoid kidney-damaging drugs, and watch it closely. For detail, ask Doc timely. ...Read more

My mother (54yrs) recently suffered with fever and dehydration. On tests her hb was found 7.4, serum creatinine= 5.9 with blood urea=97. What to do now?

Workup / comply: The abnormal renal function tests need not reflect anything more than dehydration, which we may hope is now treated. Find the cause of the anemia and treat it, do what 's required to prevent further episodes of dehydration, and you and your mother will probably have many happy years together. ...Read more

My creatinine is 6.37. What is my kidney fuction. Iam 27yrs old and my urea result is 141 please help me?

High creatinine: Your results show you to have far advanced chronic kidney disease and possibly kidney failure. You should ask the doctor who ordered to the blood work to send you to a nephrologist who will order a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance and protein and have blood taken when you return the urine. A renal ultrasound will also need to be done to see the size and morphology of your kidneys. Good luck. ...Read more

I am a 43 years old man. My problem is since last 5years my blood creatinine level is 1.5 to1.7 but my urea level is absolutely normal.

Creatinine and urea: Your creatinine level is a function of your age, weight, race and sex. You may have good renal function if you are a muscular male african-american. Your BUN is based on your protein intake and your state of hydration. See a nephrologist to have a 24 hour urine collection done for a creatrinine clearance and protein determination to see what your kidney function really is. ...Read more
