Urine Creatinine Normal Range
Urine is the product of the kidneys, which is produced to eliminate the waste products of metabolism, manage body fluid balance, &maintain acid-base balance. The blood is first filtered by the kidneys, and the composition of the resulting fluid is then altered depending on the body's needs. It is composed of mostly water, and breakdown products from blood cells impart ...Read more
We have been told urine creatinine level of 3.3, calcium 2.4 is not good for 5 yr. Old, is this in normal range or elevated? What is norm range? Confused
Spot Urine creatinine rising...has gone from 15 mg to 121mg. ..can't find normal range? Is that abnormal? Trace protein Serum creatinine was normal.
No such thing: We don't publish a reference range as people would worry. The more muscle mass you have, the more creatinine you put out daily. The level in turn is also a function of how much water you drink -- whether the urine is concentrated or dilute. And there's no illness for which increased or decreased production is a marker. If you do find a published range, ignore it. ...Read more
Dehydration: It appears that you may have dehyrdated cauisng hypernatremic (hypertonic) dehydration. This occurs when the lost fluid contains less sodium than the blood (loss of hypotonic fluid). Relatively less sodium than water is lost. Please be sure blood glucose, sodium and chloride levels were normal. I would see your doctor and have the urine test repeated along with a urinary sodium level. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Why is it so hard to find out normal urine creatinine and calcium levels for a 5 yr old if 3, 3 creatinine, 2.4 calcium. What is norm? Shud I worry?
Worthless number: The total creatinine put out varies primarily with the total mass of skeletal muscle. You'll never find a "normal" value for either. The concentration is even more variable as it depends on how much water was drunk. The urine creatinine is measured only as something to compare with a semi-constant, the creatinine. People aren't numbers, and we do a disservice focusing on labs apart from history. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is 3822.00 mmol/l normal 24- hour urine creatinine? Is 200.1ug/24h normal cortisol level for 24 hour urine test?
Random sample: urine protein 31mg/l urine albumin 5.00mg/l urine creatinine 3.894mmol/l urine albumin creatinine:ratio 1.3mg/mmol is this normal?
Is this a test?: Slight variation in the reports from different laboratories does exist. So, please refer to the attached normal range for interpretation. I'm sure there is such information for you to reconcile. If any doubt, talk and confirm with the attending doctor. Best. .. ...Read more
23M, Hypothyroid. TSH now 0.005, T3 (liothyronine) 6.88 & T4 20.35. Urine Creatinine also 282. Taking Euthyrox 50mcg everyday. All reports seem normal. Please advice.
Absolutely nothing: You're probably not a female bodybuilder and you drank a little extra water. I'm glad I could reassure you. ...Read more
Urine creatinine 24hour is 18.5 (7.1-17.7mmol/d) and my urine protein 24hour is 0.14 (<0.15g/d), I have IgM k monocloncal protein in b2 what is this?
Stop worrying: Reference ranges are where most people fall; there's no reason at all to get upset about a trivially high creatinine on a test that is done only to make a ratio with the albumin, which seems quite normal, thanks. My own guess is that your physician is eager to reassure you, and i'd urge you to accept this. There's much good in your life & future -- keep your eyes there. ...Read more
Not reabsorbed: Creatinine is used to calculate glomerular filtration rates because the kidney does not reabsorb it: whatever gets filtered into the glomerulus ends up in the urine. So it is a reliable indicator of how much blood has been filtered. All you have to calculate is the volume of blood that contained the amount of creatinine that appeared in the urine over a certain time. ...Read more
Strong kidneys!: It sounds like your kidneys are working normally. That's what they're supposed to do -- clear metabolic products like creatinine from the blood, dumping it into the urine. The urine level might be especially high if you haven't been drinking lots of fluids lately, i.e. if the urine is relatively concentrated. In any case, this is a good sign, nothing to worry about. ...Read more
