Uti And High Creatinine Levels
A urinary tract infection, also known as an UTI, may involve the kidney, ureter, bladder, or urethra. A common cause is an intestinal bacteria, E. coli. Common symptoms include a frequent urge to urinate, and pain or burning when urinating. Antibiotics are typically ...Read more
Number of reasons: Normally in a routine UTI, the creatinine should not be effected. If the UTI is completed and involves the kidneys, the creatinine level may increase due to kidney damage from the infection. Alternatively, some medications may cause an elevation. The creatinine may increase with a simple decrease in fluid consumption as well.See 1 more doctor answer
Negative in UTI & diabetes & creatinine is in lowest level. But with frequent urination. What could possibly be the causes?
Bladder spasms: You could have overactive bladder from dietary irritants. Test this out by removing from you diet all: chocolate, peppermint, tomato, citrus, spicy food, alcohol, tobacco, caffeine, and artificial sweeteners. After 2-3 weeks, try re-introducing each of these items one-by-one to see if a certain product causes your urinary frequency.
What significance is an elevated bun/creatinine ratio? I also had WBC on urinalysis but no bacteria, no signs of uti. Bun and creatinine individually
Better to look at: Actual results rather than the ratio. What are the results for BUN and creatinine? Please note that all lab 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.
Not usually: An uncomplicated, simple UTI (e.G, cystitis /bladder infection) would not affect your bun/creatinine/gfr which are the blood tests that reflect the overall function of the kidneys. A complicated, severe UTI affecting the kidneys (pyelonephritis) could, directly and or indirectly, affect kidney function and these blood tests if associated with sepsis, obstruction, or significant dehydration.
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.
Would getting a UTI cause the kidney numbers like egfr, bun, and creatinine to change for the worse?
UTI and EGFR: Normally, uti's have no effect on gfr. If you have some obstrction (o) in your urinary outflow tract, your GFR can decrease until the o is resolved. What was the time interval between your GFR readings? Call you doctor and get his advice or see a nephrologist for another opinion. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
S. creatinine increased from 1 to 1.27 in 6 mnths. No albumin or RBC in urine. Frequent urination, smelly, red color. 2-3 epith+pus cells. Is it UTI?
My AST is 49, my ALT is 83, bun/creatinine is 16.3. I have right flank and back pain on right side and my UA was positive for moderate bacteria. UTI??
UTI + liver disease: You didn't mention painful frequent urination w/urgency, which are hallmarks of urinary tract infections (UTIs), whether simple cystitis (bladder) or pyelonephritis (kidney). Regardless, urine should be sent for culture & sensitivity so that doctor can confirm you've received appropriate antibiotic. Also need to monitor liver function given elevated AST & ALT, even test for infectious hepatitisSee 1 more doctor answer
Cause and effect: Some bacteria thrive in higher, or more basic, ph. And some bacteria cause elevated pH and subsequent urinary stones. This is one of the premises of Hiprex + vitamin c treatment to prevent UTI in patients suffering from recurrent uti. By maintaining a relatively lower ph, UTI may be less likely.See 1 more doctor answer
I don't have a diet high in purine, but I have got diagnosed a UTI and high uric levels, would this be related to my kidneys.

Uti: It isn't. It's associated with being female and being diabetic.
Albumin = good news: Good not to have Albumin or protein in urine. Elevated cholesterol levels havenothing to do with uti's. Utis almost invariable are caused by bacteria reaching the bladder, attaching themselves to bladder wall and multiplying. Levevated cholesterol is due in part to genetic factors & in part to diet. Advise a low cholesterol diet & your dr. Will prescribe statins if necessary. Good luck.

I have high cretatine of 141. Will disodium hydrogen citrate liquid for UTI infection increase level of cretatine?
Unclear: Are you referring to measurements of urine or blood? The creatinine in your blood is normally less than 1 mg/dl, and urine measurements will vary wildly according to the concentration of your urine. Either way, creatinine levels should not be affected by taking citrate (which acidifies the urine and helps clear bacterial bladder infections).See 1 more doctor answer
