Can i take lisinopril, amlodipine, and furosemide for high creatinine and protein in urine, while i also have high uric acid levels?
Meds for proteinuria: Lisinopril (l) is an excellent drug for reducing proteinuria (p) and blood pressure control. With a high creatinine, you need to be under the care of a nephrologist (n) to make sure you can preserve your kidney function as long as possible. You also need to have a 24 hour urine collection to assess your kidney function and to see how much p you have. A n can also help with your uric acid problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Does kidney failure typically cause urine pH fluctuations & protien in urine, but normal bun and creatine?
Renal failure: Renal failure implies the kidneys are not working. When that happens, BUN and serum creatinine rise. Ph fluctuations in urine are normal. Mild amounts of protein in urine can be normal. So, kidney failure can cause a whole bunch of urine changes, but BUN and creatinine have to be abnormal to make this diagnosis. ...Read more
High microalbumin and microalbumin/creatinine lab results with good b.P. And kidney function. Why high?
High microablumin: Your microalbumin/creatinine being high signifies that you have proteinuria. See a nephrologist to have a 24 hour urine collection for creatinine clearance and protein to see how much protein you have in your urine for 24 hours and to see what your kidney function is. Blood work will be needed as well to diagnose the cause of your proteinuria. Go to a nephrologist to answer your question. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Complex: I'm not sure if you have a primary liver or kidney disease (or both). Creatinine elevation is unlikely the cause of liver dysfunction, unless medications are having a prolonged effect on the liver from kidney dysfunction. The high potassium points to a kidney source of the problem. See your internist. ...Read more
My lab results show high levels of protein in urine 27 mg, urine creatinine 316.3 mg but levels of protein/creatinine ratio 90 mg. What does it mean?
Ur Protein/Cr ratio: The urine protein to urine creatinine ratio is an estimate of the 24hr urine protein. It is less cumbersome and quick. A urine protein to creatinine ratio of 0.15 or less would be consdered normal. For example urine protein of 30 and urine creatinine of 300 would be a upc of 0.1. ...Read more

Will high bloodsugar cause low creatin levels in urine? I had blood sugar levels of 300 and above and recently took a drug test that came back having low creatin levels.
Diluted urine: A low creatinine is not from elevated sugars, but from excessive water drinking, which is common in diabetics. It means you are drinking enough water to dilute your urine. It is not dangerous, but most drug tests will be considered "adulterated" - a failed test - if the creatinine is below 20. Get your diabetes under control asap. Continued high sugars are dangerous to your health. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My lab results show high levels of protein in urine 27 mg, urine creatinine 316.3 mg but levels of protein/creatinine ration 90 mg. What does it mean?
Protein in urine: The results mean that you probably have a lot of protein in your urine. To determine how much, you need to see a nephrologist and have a 24 hour urine collection to assess the amount of protein in your urine as well as your renal function. Depending on the amount of protein in your urine, you may need to have additional blood tests to see if you have any type of glomeulonephritis or diabetes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Does a low phoshorus level and low complement C3 but normal bun and creatin level mean kidney failure?
No: Kidney failure is defined by changes in bun/cr and more correctly GFR (glomerular filtration rate) over time. A normal BUN and cr is reassuring. Usually the phosphorus is high with kidney failure. A low complement (c3) level relates to the immune system and a possible deficiency there. ...Read more
Bun/creatine ratio is 24.was fasting and hydrated. creatine alone is 0.73 just slightly low. have liver disease. why ratio high?
BUN Cr. Ratio: is useful in the differential diagnosis of acute or chronic renal disease. Reduced renal perfusion, e.g., congestive heart failure, or recent onset of urinary tract obstruction will result in an increase in BUN/Creatinine ratio. Increased urea formation also results in an increase in the ratio, e.g., gastrointestinal bleeding, trauma, etc. When there decreased urea in liver disease, ratio is low. ...Read more

Was the urine collected properly with cleansing of the body around the urethra? If not, then bacteria on the skin can cause false results on the urine. 2. Was the specimen processed immediately after the urine collection? ...Read more
