What could my high creatinine level mean if pregnant?

What could my high creatinine level mean if pregnant?

Not likely: Pregnancy in a healthy woman should not increase creatinine level. Please see your doctor for an evaluation of kidney function. There are far too many causes of elevated creatinine to list, but most point to impairment of kidney function. ...Read more

What does it mean if both bun & creatinine levels are good, but the ratio is high?

What does it mean if both bun & creatinine levels are good, but the ratio is high?

Actual 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, if both creatinine and BUN are normal you do not need to worry about the ratio. ...Read more

My son is 16 years old 5'10" 162 lbs. I was told his creatinine level was a bit high (1.1). What does this mean?How will this affect him?

My son is 16 years old 5'10" 162 lbs. I was told his creatinine level was a bit high (1.1). What does this mean?How will this affect him?

Whoa: Unless junior's personal physician very much disagrees, i'd ignore it. The "reference range" was set for non-exercising adults. Any teenaged boy with good muscles will have creatinine 1.1 or higher; in whole classes of athletic med students, most men had creatinine above this. When i was lifting daily, mine was 1.6; a bodybuilder often has 2.0. Too many lawyers and too little common sense. ...Read more

Do high creatinine levels mean renal failure?

Do high creatinine levels mean renal failure?

High creatinine: Serum c is dependent on the person's weight, race and age. You need to have a 24 hour urine collection for a creatinine (c) clearance determination to know what your renal function is. When the urine is returned, blood is taken for a c level. That is the sure way to know how serious your creatinine level is and what your true renal function is. ...Read more

What does it mean low creatinine levels and high bun creatinine ratio?

Muscle mass: Serum levels of creatinine depend on renal function, muscle mass and intake of muscles foods. A low creatinine level is of no consequence as long as you are not emaciated. Paralyzed, or have extensive amputations. High ratio just reflects low creatinine. ...Read more

What does it mean if your creatinine level is too high 1.16 and your bun/creatinine ratio is very low at a 5?

What does it mean if your creatinine level is too high 1.16 and your bun/creatinine ratio is very low at a 5?

Why do you ask?: Labs mean nothing in the absence of a clinical history. You might be a vegan bodybuilder. When I was lifting weights every day, my creatinine ran 1.6-1.8. The fellow-pathologists with whom I've discussed it think that reports generated by labs are causing overdiagnosis of renal disease (it's subscience -- "there's an adjustment for race because black people are more muscular.") ...Read more

I have my 2nd surgical hernia my doc gave me a CRT with dye. My creatinine (POC) level was 120. Is this high? What does it mean.

Talk w/your doc: When reviewing your test results, check out the normal reference range. Abnormal results are usually highlighted, boldfaced or placed in "abnormal" column. Creatinine is what we measure in your blood to check kidney function but true measure of kidney function depends upon age, gender, weight & ethnicity which is used to calculate eGFR (estimated glomerular filtration rate). So go chat w/your doc. ...Read more

My 8 month old son has been having some stomach issues and we just got some results back. I am curious to what a normal bun level, but a slightly higher creatinine serum level means. His ratio is also considered high.

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

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 more

Hi i'm rami my mom have a high creatinine level 8.57 in the heamatology report and i want to help her, she's 53, what to do to reduce it?Plz help, thanks

High creatinine: A creatinine of 8.57 would not be on a hematology report, it would be on a chem panel. The lab should have called the doctor to report this elevated creatinine level. Have your mother speak to her doctor and get referred to a nephrologist. It seems that she would be rather ill with an untreated creatinine leve of 8.57 mg/dl. Get her some from a nephrologist to see if she can be helped. ...Read more

Creatinine elevation: This creatinine value indicates kidney insufficiency that is advanced. She requires a nephrologists evaluation as soon as possible to determine how to reverse kidney failure. Safe foods include grain foods, pasta (no sauce), bread, rice, and most vegetables. Avoid tomato and potato and citrus fruits. See doctor and dietitian as soon as possible. ...Read more
