I recently had a creatinine urine 24hr test which came out high (2100 mg/24hr). What does this generally signal?
You're fine: Especially if you're a bit more muscular than today's average guy, or a big guy, or you drank a lot of water that day, or it's actually a few more than 24 hours, or you ate an extra serving of meat, i'd consider this normal. The only value in measuring it is to give other substances "per gram of creatinine". ...Read more

Could my egfr go from 76 all last year to 128 last test. Can this increase? Can creatinine decrease from disease process. Albu also slowly down to 3.8
Yes: Lab values very both day to day and as diseases wax and wane. As a pathologist, i set little by clinicians' estimates of gfr; i'd follow your BUN and creatinine, and urinalysis and urine protein instead. If you were a bit dry last year and drank a lot of water this year, there's anr explanation. Albumin 3.8 is within normal range. "treat the person, not the numbers." good luck. ...Read more
How high?: When i was lifting weights every day, my creatinine was usually 1.7 mg/dl, and elite bodybuilders have up to 2.0 or so. This is perfectly healthy. Simply being dehydrated or popping a little too much Motrin can up the creatinine enough to get noticed, or serious kidney disease can be the cause. Don't treat a lab value -- your physician can determine the big picture. ...Read more
Second Creatinine test this has come back borderline and now being told to wait for another month to repeat test 3Rd time, what does this mean?
Borderline result: 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.

Make sure you are well hydrated for the third test, ...Read more
