Albumin passes in urine but serum creatinine is 0.9?

Albuminuria. hi, how much? The amount your kidney is excreting is important.
Albumin/Cr. Serum Cr can be OK, but if kidneys are spilling protein, high chance Cr will increase over time as kidneys show signs of damage. Albumin is a blood protein that a healthy kidney should not allow to pass into the urine, except in tiny amounts. One way to detect if it is a significant amount is the urine microalbumin/URINE Cr (not serum) ratio. If 300, bad.In between = borderline.

A patient with serum creatinine 1.3 and his 24 hours urine routine specifies that albumin releases with his urine. Should he take renolog tablets?

I doubt it. How does he FEEL? "Renolog" is a mix of amino acids that's being pushed in India for everybody suspected of having anything going on with the kidneys. Creatinine of 1.3 is anything but kidney failure; when I was lifting weights daily, mine ran 1.7 to 1.8 from high muscle mass. Is he diabetic?

Worried about protein in urine. Urea nitrogen 12 creatinine serum 0.6 eGFR 116.8 AST 20 alt 30 albumin 3.9 1+ blood and 1+ protein in urine.?

Stop worrying. 1+ protein in the urine is seldom a sign of anything at all. Most often, it's from standing up. Some folks lose protein during the day, but if you empty your bladder before you go to sleep and then check your urine in the morning, it's protein-free. Ask your physician about this. However, I am MUCH more concerend about the blood. This needs a workup especially if it's not lifelong. Read more...

My lab reports are serum creatinine 80, GFR 72, and creatinine clearance 69.9. my 24 hr urine creatinine was 6.9 and spot urine 2.2. What does it mean?

Not much. You're 55 years old and -- congratulations -- a recovered problem drinker. Unless you're especially fit or heavily-muscled, your creatinine may be a bit high and maybe your kidneys are getting old -- but this level is perfectly compatible with good health and if you had serious kidney disease, it would be a lot worse by now. Eat sensibly, stay fit and I bet your kidneys will last a lifetime. Read more...
