I have a calcium of 10.5mg/dL and Vitamin D 25-Hydroxy 28.7 ng/mL. I was reading that it pointed to having an almost 100% chance of a parathyroid tumor. My family doctor said "no", as calcium levels are up in a CKD patient and that I was to view all blood work through my kidney disease. He told me to come here and read about it, but I found nothing about it. My family doctor said because of my kidney disease that my calcium is elevated so that rules this disease out. He recommended I come to this site. I found nothing here, so I am asking you. What do you think? Do I need a surgeon or do I ignore the results of the blood test? Calcium10.5 Calcium should be in the 9's for my age 65. Vitamin D 25-Hydroxy 28.7ng/mL. I need to know what you think about this. My GFR is 39, 10 points down from last month.
I'm 33 female with over 17yrs of heavy medication regimen of NSAIDs, bipolar, Gabapentin, and has impres thyroid medications. I've got genetic pernicious anemia that's caused a fair amount of nerve damage. This past year I've had urination and kidney area pain. Blood shows low bun (7) and Creatinine Serum(1.10) first tested in April. My TSH was very high 1 month ago and cholesterol high as well. Urologist put 585.9 (chronic kidney disease unspecified) on my kidney US order. That's all the info I was given. I'm not seeing him for a month. I'm not sure what I've got or what it means and I am scared.
I was just informed I have a GFR of 39. Was 59 on previous labs. Never told I had decreased function. I recently had MRI with contrast. Concerned I may have an acute kidney injury. Have shortness of breath, trouble eating and sleeping, weight loss, poor concentration. They do not seem concerned but I am. What should I do?
A magnetic resonance imaging scan (MRI) with contrast does not cause kidney injury. It can cause other problems such as skin disease in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), but it does not cause kidney injury. 12 more words
I am a 49 year old white woman in good health. I recently had a blood test at a local Health Fair. The results came back with a ˃60 GFR, BUN of 16, BUN/Creat Ratio of 16 and a MCHC of 31.9. Do these figure indicate CKD?Kidney-Related Health Questions
My friend got his first kidney transplant done in January this year. All these months, his reports were all good, no concerns as such. Creatinine was constant at 1.3 - 1.4. However, he got his test done today and the results said that his creatinine is 1.5. Also, the report indicated slightly high SERUM INORG.PHOSPHORUS level at 4.6 mg/dL. Normal range being: 2 - 4.5 mg/dL. Is this something to worry about? All this while his phosphorus levels were between 3 and 4 mg/dL. Calcium and alkaline phosphatase are within their normal ranges.
I am unable to make a specific diagnosis based on the information that you provide. I suspect there could be a laboratory error or your friend could have eaten before the blood draw. 14 more words

I am unable to provide a specific diagnosis without performing a complete history and physical examination on your mother. The laboratory reports you cite indicate your mother is anemic but I cannot tell why. 22 more words
