What Is Normal Creatinine Level In Urine Pregnancy
Here are 2 causes: Here are two possibilities: 1. You collected more than 24 hours' urine. This would most likely happen if you collected the first morning urine on both the starting and finishing day. 2. You have a large muscle mass. Creatinine is a muscle breakdown product, and people with large muscle mass excrete more creatinine in urine as a result. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
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 might I have a gfr reading of 78 and no albumin in my urine and normal creatinine levels in my urine? So it's unable to calculate an ACR.
High levels, not low: levels, of albumin may be a marker for kidney problems. Your GFR is well within normal range. No albumin was detected in your urine. Urine ACR is the ratio between the concentration of albumin and creatinine in the urine. Since your urine albumin concentration is "zero", the ratio can't be calculated mathematically. The results of your tests are consistent with healthy kidneys. Dr. Anne. ...Read more
I am having serious problems passing urine drug screens. My creatinine levels are constantly too low and the test is considered diluted. The highest level I have ever had is 86. All passing tests have normally and consistently been between 20 & 30. But I
See answer: The following links will provide you with some further insights regarding drug testing and "over-diluted" urine specimens: http://www.norchemlab.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/Creatinine.pdf http://www.verificationsinc.com/newsletter/04272007/negativedilute.html I hope this helps. ...Read more
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
What can cause sudden higher levels of creatinine in urine 133. normal to doubling in less than 3 months. no protien or particles in urine. Not sick.
Creatinine levels consistently low for adult life, typical range is .48 to .52- All kidney, urine, blood tests normal- any reason for concern?
My bun level is 16mg/dl and my creatinine 0.62 mg/dl normals but bun/creatinine is 26.1 should I be worried? I was fasting. Other blood & urine ok!
Nope: The ratio is high due to a relative increase in the BUN with a perfectly normal cr. You may have been a bit dehydrated with the fast. No issue here. ...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

Is 3822.00 mmol/l normal 24- hour urine creatinine? Is 200.1ug/24h normal cortisol level for 24 hour urine test?
How to reduce creatinine level from 4.9, having protein in urine of 67 mg. Person also have fasting blood sugar of 160 and now slowly coming to normal?
Lowering creatinine: It seems as if this person has diabetes. Apparently, this person has seen a physician. The creatinine (c) is dependent on a person's sex, age, weight and race. To know what the renal function, a 24 hour urine for (c) clearance and protein needs to be done as well as a renal ultrasound. Go to physician and have the glucose controlled. The c may not go down but may not increase with therapy ...Read more
Had blood and urinalysis 7/15. Blood work was all normal but urine showed creatinine level of 409, trace protein, trace leukocyte esterase, WBC, hyali?
Stop worrying: I understand you have fibromuscular dysplasia of the renal arteries and hope this can be addressed. The urine creatinine, trace protein and hyaline casts are non-issues, the trace of leukocyte esterase and white cells (unless very numerous or you have symptoms of infection) are likely contamination, and if your physician is not concerned, I would not be either. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Shud i be concerned with brown looking urine from my 5 yr old girl, who has had recent elevated creatinine level in urine? No diagnosis yet, drs mon
Brown urine: There are a number of causes of brown urine, that can reflect kidney, liver, blood or muscle disorders that need to be evaluated by medical tests (mostly blood-work, some urine tests). Preliminary tests might include urinalysis, cbc, retic count, cpk, aso titer, c3, c4, cmp, urine protein/creatinine ratio, aso titer, etc. A pediatric nephrologist (kidney specialist) may be appropriate. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

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
Not much: Urine creatinine is concentrated with dehydration, but is always higher than blood creatinine except in severe kidney desease. The urine creatinine is much higher than blood in a normal state.. The importance of urine creatinine is in the calculation of creatinine clearance and fractional excretions. This requires interpretation by your physician. ...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
Likely no problem.: Your creatinine is within normal range (< 1.5 mg/dl). Normal ranges can vary, but this is well within many. Your 24 urine was normal, which likely means your kidneys are working properly and you likely don't have any diseases, like diabetes, etc. That cause abnormal amounts of urine to be produced. ...Read more
When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks.
