What Is A Normal Level Of Urine Creatinine
No such thing: We don't publish a reference range as people would worry. The more muscle mass you have, the more creatinine you put out daily. The level in turn is also a function of how much water you drink -- whether the urine is concentrated or dilute. And there's no illness for which increased or decreased production is a marker. If you do find a published range, ignore it. ...Read more
Urine is the product of the kidneys, which is produced to eliminate the waste products of metabolism, manage body fluid balance, &maintain acid-base balance. The blood is first filtered by the kidneys, and the composition of the resulting fluid is then altered depending on the body's needs. It is composed of mostly water, and breakdown products from blood cells impart ...Read more
Why is it so hard to find out normal urine creatinine and calcium levels for a 5 yr old if 3, 3 creatinine , 2.4 calcium..What is norm ? Shud i worry?
Worthless number: The total creatinine put out varies primarily with the total mass of skeletal muscle. You'll never find a "normal" value for either. The concentration is even more variable as it depends on how much water was drunk. The urine creatinine is measured only as something to compare with a semi-constant, the creatinine. People aren't numbers, and we do a disservice focusing on labs apart from history. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Dehydration: It appears that you may have dehyrdated cauisng hypernatremic (hypertonic) dehydration. This occurs when the lost fluid contains less sodium than the blood (loss of hypotonic fluid). Relatively less sodium than water is lost. Please be sure blood glucose, sodium and chloride levels were normal. I would see your doctor and have the urine test repeated along with a urinary sodium level. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My urine creatinine was 20 when 4 months ago it was 73, my BUN level was 7. What could be causing this?
This means nothing: Urine creatinine varies with your hydration. You excrete a certain amount daily depending mostly on your muscle mass. Drink twice as much water, and you cut your creatinine in half. It's worth measuring only as a standard against which to compare other elements measured in your urine. A "low BUN" means nothing. You're not a kidney patient. I'm sorry no one explained this to you. ...Read more
