I am scared regarding my test results: Glucose= 87, Efgr nonafrican= 96. 60 ml/min 1.7m, Blood= traces!, Proteinuria= 2+!, Creatinine= 0.99 0.60-1.35mg, Urea nitrogen= 26H 7-25mg, Bun creatine ratio= 26h 6-22mg, Protein, total, serum= 7.9 8.3-10.6mg, Albumin= 5.0 3.6-5.1 g/dl, A/g ratio= 1.7 1.0-2.5, Globulin calculated= 2.9.
I am unable to interpret laboratory results without performing a complete history and physical examination. I suggest you discuss this with the physician who ordered these laboratory tests. 8 more words
My father is diagnosed with sepsis having high ESR and acute kidney failure. His serum creatinine level was 5.9. After taking treatment from nephrologist for 3 months, it decreased to 3.8 but has again increased to 5.9. He is not receiving hemodialysis and it was done once due to high infection to lessen burden on kidneys. Medications prescribed are : sevlamer carbonate, metroprol succinate for (high bp) acetyline cystine taurine tab, calcitriol tab, probiotics, urimax tamsuolin, iron and vitamin supplement tabs, and EPO Injections. Despite having EPO injection, Hb and Hct level decreasing and serum electrophoresis reports are also done for multiple myelomma but that is normal. USG reports kidney size is normal. Urine output is 1500-1800ml normally drinking 3 litres of water daily. 7 Days ago his cr level is 5.7 and bun is 129.
I am a 52 year old female. My recent eGFR of 47 picked up by accident. Last eGFR 5 years ago was 56 and not followed up. I have no diabetes, hypertension or repeated UTI. I am not overweight I do not drink and I am a runner. GP doesn't know what is causing the low eGFR! I have been referred to nephrologist but am really worried. What can be causing this problem?
Could you please tell me what gfr of 52 and creatinine of 0.9 means? The doctors just tell me that my kidneys are running slow. I am 52 and 123lbs and on 3 blood pressure pills. I am still waiting for a 24hr urine that has been out for 2 weeks.
I was diagnosed with kidney disease six years ago and not told about it. My GFR is 4.9 today. How serious is it?
An estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) of 4.9 milliliters per minute per 1.73 meters squared would be a very serious problem. I suggest you consult with a nephrologist.
My doctor did not say anything about WBC Esterase being abnormal, or in the microscopic examination. Should I be worried about this ? He did diagnose me with CKD stage 3. I also have pretty bad flank pain in my back. Is that something I should be worried about ?
