I have had kidney pain and microalbuminuria and left kidney is atrophic. And large cyst measuring 6cm on right lower pole in May 2013. Had a renal tract ultrasound yesterday can you please answer what the findings are? The right kidney is hypertrophic measuring 13.2cm the cyst has grown to 8.6cm which is avascular since May 2013 there is mild prominence of the right renal collecting system. And the left atrophic kidney has four small cysts measuring up to 1.8cm. The bladder contained a pre-void volume of 614ml and a mildly enlarged post-void volume of 53ml. My timed urine microalbumin (MAT-0) showed my albumin excretion rate was 59.6 uq/min. Please let me know what you think?
I am considering living kidney donation. I am a 36 year old white female and the transplant center has estimated my kidney function using the Cockcroft Gault and the 24 hour urine creatinine clearance equations. What should my kidney function be at my age?
Each laboratory determines the normals for that particular laboratory test. A normal creatinine clearance for a 36 year old female is generally going to be in the range of 80 to 120 milliliters per minute but will also be dependent on your body size. 10 more words
I lost one kidney to cancer 3 years ago. The other one is working at 22% now (lost 10 points). I was wondering, I went 3years without a change, now a 10 point difference. Does this mean the kidney is finally giving out?
This could be just a laboratory aberration or mistake. That is why we encourage repeat testing when one test doesn’t fit with prior tests. I would recommend that you discuss your concern with your physician. 9 more words
My doctor wants me to have a heart cath test and I have stage 4 kidney failure. I am 71 yrs old and I don't know if I should have this test because of the dye hurting my kidneys but worry about clogs in heart as I have PAD also. Can you help me decide?
I cannot help you decide without performing a complete history and physical examination on you. I recommend that you consult with your primary care physician and ask for a referral to a nephrologist for an examination and consultation. 32 more words
