What is the medical significance of high creatinine clearance levels?Normal betw. 80 and 130. My results: 165. Serum creatinine 0,8. Low diuresis.

Normal

Creatinine
Normal creatinine clearance should be higher than 90 and 165 is perfectly normal. You cannot have it too high. Your serum creatinine is fine too.

My father aged 70 has renal disease .creatinine clearance is 7 .some mornings his blood pressure drops very low even to 50 70 . Pl suggest?

Renal Failure

Blood_pressure
Your query raises some interesting points. If your data are correct, at a creatinine clearance of 7 ml/min, your father should be on dialysis. Is he? If so, speak to his nephrologist (N). If not, have him see his physician who can examine him and take some blood work to see what his blood count is. If his blood pressure is very low, you should get him to an ER to have him assessed. Good luck.

Low creatinine serum, high creatinine clearance and normal urine cret at age 21. Totally sedentary lifestyle with high protein diet. What's thr prob?

Kidney problem?

Creatinine
With the information you provided, I do not think you have a problem with your kidneys. Creatinine is an indication of your kidney function and, just as important, is gives an estimation of your muscle mass. A high creatinine clearance may be seen with uncontrolled diabetes, which you do not have. Speak to the physician who ordered these tests on you for more information, he knows you best.

I am 35 years old.UTP results protean level is 1.0 g/24h ,creatinine clearance is 102.4 ml/min .My blood creatinine level is1.05mg/dl .Is it dangerous

Proteinuria

Stringio
You have 1 gram of proteinuria/day (P), which is a lot. Your physician should send off blood for ASO, ANCA 2, Complement C3 and C4, HIV, Hepatitis B antibodies, Hb a1c and ANA. A renal biopsy may be needed, to get a diagnosis and a prognosis if the blood work does not give a diagnosis of your P. Your P needs to be treated and once a diagnosis is made, you can start on a course of treatment.

Testosterone and creatinine clearance?

Clarify

Creatinine
I'm not sure what your question is. Testosterone should be used with caution in patients with conditions involving edema, such as impaired kidney function, as the hormone may worsen edema. One of the adverse effects of testosterone is an increase in serum creatinine concentration.
