I've had a creatinine level of 1.8 and 1.9. Is this considered high? If so, what needs to be done to bring it down?

If you have either of these underlying conditions, get them under control asap. Ask your doctor about your "egfr" result - another kidney blood test. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Hi i'm rami
my mom have a high creatinine level 8.57 in the heamatology report and i want to help her, she's 53, what to do to reduce it?Plz help, thanks
High creatinine: A creatinine of 8.57 would not be on a hematology report, it would be on a chem panel. The lab should have called the doctor to report this elevated creatinine level. Have your mother speak to her doctor and get referred to a nephrologist. It seems that she would be rather ill with an untreated creatinine leve of 8.57 mg/dl. Get her some from a nephrologist to see if she can be helped. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Co-tango usually: The BUN is usually 10 times the creatinine. When the creatinine goes up, the BUN goes up similarly to roughly keep this proportion, in most kidney disease states. The notable exception is when the creatinine goes up say by 20% to 1.2, but the BUN goes up *5 to 50. This strongly suggests a pre-renal state, commonly dehydration. Mild elevations of BUN with normal creatinines aren't of concern. ...Read more

I have a high bun/ creatinine level (28) and a low creatinine level (0.5) . Should I be concerned or do something?

This might be due to a diet high in non-essential amino acids (nothing to truly be concerned about) or a mild lack of water intake. If you are still concerned, please see your primary doctor and go over all of that with her/him. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
