Lab is not a disease: You do not give us enough data. What you are describing is a normal creatinine (not creatine, i assume), BUN and calcium. Levels are normal. Levels also depend on the specific method used by the laboratory. Can't rule gn in or out without mre data. ...Read more

Serum creatine 1.22 with normal ultrasound, normal urinanalysis and too low leve of microalbuminuria (uncountable). Does it mean anything? Thanks M,31

Good for you: This is what happens when a lawyer-shy medical community is forced to look at labs apart from people. This is a normal creatinine for a 30 year old man with muscle. Mine is higher. When I was lifting weights daily, it ran 1.6-1.8. I'm sorry you had to go through the workup. ...Read more

High potassium & low creatine. I know it has to do with kidneys but what can this mean?

High potassium & low creatine. I know it has to do with kidneys but what can this mean?

One for your doctor: A low creatinine is never a cause for concern. High potassium in the absence of some sign of ill-health can be due to something as trivial as rough handling of the blood tube (hemolysis). Perhaps your physician will repeat the draw, or write off a lab that does not make sense. I trust you do not have addisonism. Good luck. ...Read more

I have adpkd 24 y/o and trying to gain muscle. My creatine clearance is 87ml/min BUN and creatinine are normal. How much protein can I take in grams?

I have adpkd 24 y/o and trying to gain muscle.  My creatine clearance is 87ml/min BUN and creatinine are normal.  How much protein can I take in grams?

As you wish: There is no limit on how much protein you can eat. Some cowboy cultures have lived on nothing but meat and suffered no bad effects. Just because some sick people must restrict protein (or gluten, or beer, or many other things) doesn't mean it's wise for you. You do need to know that more than 1 gm of protein daily per pound you weigh is probably wasted even for bodybuilding. ...Read more

If you do not have a relationship with the appropriate health care provider to protect your kidneys and treat the underlying disease get one! ...Read more
