What Does A High Creatinine Level Mean In Toddlers
Kidney problems.: Pregnancy relies on good renal function in the mother. Increased (>0.8-1.0 mg/dl) creatinine in pregnancy, if true, suggests poor renal function and portends poor prognosis for preeclampsia, hypertension, pulmonary edema, fetal growth and preterm birth. See a maternal-fetal medicine specialist to investigate this further and avoid high-protein diet as it can burden your kidneys even further. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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.
Here are some...: You should refer your questions & concerns to his pediatrician who possesses more of his pertinent information than anyone online. Besides it is useful to always correlate the lab findings with individual clinical profile and compare with prior tests serially. To make a question easy to answer, always stress the specifics & relevance with sequence of events in the question. Best wish... ...Read more
