Tinnitus: Important facts to know would be whether you have difficulty hearing or pain in addition to other symptoms. You may have fluid in the middle ear due to URI and this could cause pressure, tinnitus, hearing loss, and possibly an off balance sensation. Sometimes, a virus can get into inner ear and cause a disturbance there with tinnitus and possibly off balance. See ENT for exam and hearing test. ...Read more

What are the results: Of BUN and creatinine? Ratios often distort the meaning of raw values. 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 one needs to know the actual values to provide an opinion. ...Read more

Lab variability.: It's hard to put these numbers into context as you've added variance between labs. You'd need to have a few values drawn at the same lab to see what consistency (or not) your numbers have. The variability across labs makes these values difficult to reliably interpret. ...Read more

Probably normal: It is perfectly normal for 5% of the population to be a bit outside of the "normal" lab values. Unless you are far outside of the norms or know that your values are changing significantly over time there is little to worry about. It is reasonable to recheck mildly abnormal labs in a few months. That value may be your normal value and not indicative of any problem. ...Read more

Serum Creatinine 0.98 serum jaffe method.last month it was 1.2 but in different lab. Is jaffe standard method and what is normal range??

Labs vary: Even different instruments both running the Jaffe will often produce different results. For creatinine, this is famous. And you may have put on a bit more muscle in the interim. "Reference range" varies from lab to lab as well, and it's by no means the same as "healthy range" -- it's set so that several percent of healthies fall outside on either end. A creatinine of 1.2 is no concern for a guy. ...Read more

Hi sir my lab result is here now my creatinine level is 1.13 normal range is 1.2 my sgpt is 60 normal range 36 is this dangerous? Please help ne thank

Follow it: Your creatinine is fine especially if you are physically fit. When I was lifting weights every day, mine ran 1.6 or even a bit higher. Your physician will probably repeat your SGPT off alcohol and and meds and if it is still up, run a few more labs to look for hepatitis virus, hemochromatosis, or Wilson's ...Read more
