What Is Normal Creatinine Post Nephrectomy
I had a partial nephrectomy in 2008. My lab results were normal for bun and creatinine however bun/creatinine ratio was high (25). Should I be concern?
No: Many times the ratio is high but relative to the individual values a low normal creatinine and a high normal BUN will show an abnormal ration but would be normal individual numbers. The benefit ais thta it makes one look at the numbers more carefully but is not used for a diagnosis. ...Read more
My father had a radical nephrectomy 3 years back. He lost one kidney.
Recently tests shown his creatinine level 2.0. Not diabetic. How to lower down?
Follow-up: If dad is a well-muscled man (which raises creatinine well above "normal range" for today's couch potatoes) and we already know why he lost half his nephrons, this may not be an issue. I trust he is being followed up and that folks are watching for focal-segmental glomerulosclerosis / hyperfiltration lesion that's fairly common in kidneys that lose their partner. Don't try to treat a lab value. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have had a nephrectomy due to renal cell carcinoma in 2011. My CMP= creatinine 1.72, GFR 31, ALT 68, AST 45. are ^ numbers due to diabetes/kidneys?
Nephrectomy: ...will reduce kidney function in half resulting in increased serum creatinine (Cr) and reduced (GFR). With time the kidney compensates through hypertrophy, and these numbers partially normalize. Your numbers are not normal suggesting another cause of kidney dysfunction, possibly from diabetes, if there is a longstanding history of this. The increased AST and ALT suggest mild liver dysfunction. ...Read more
I'am a 27 yrs old married woman. Had a nephractomy at a age of 19 days. And suffering for adpkd for last 15 yrs. What should be my normal creatinine?
It depends : Creatinine level depends on your kidney function as well as your muscle mass. For people not in the extremes of age/muscle mass, a normal creatinine could be anywhere from 0.6 to 1.2. However, it has to be interpreted in the light of a person's muscle mass and age. A cr of 1.2 could be "high" suggesting significant kidney dysfunction in a 90 yr old woman; but could be "normal" for a 30 yr old. ...Read more
