My wife is 51 years old. Her creatinine level was always below 0.97. On 18 April, her creatinine level rose at 1.41 and gfr was at 51. On 25 May her creatinine level was 137.6 umol/L and gfr went down to 37. In the 1st investigation period she was having fever and in the 2nd investigation period she had coughing. Now her creatinine level is 1.55 even though she is on 30gm protein level diet plan. What is the cause of quick drop of her gfr?
My husband gets blood work done every 6 months for the last 20 years due to a pituitary adenoma. His Comprehensive Metabolic Panel has always been normal until 2 years ago. His creatinine went from a 1.21 in January 2015 to a 1.46 in August 2015. He had a 24 urine test done in November 2015 and it showed normal kidney function. The doctor said kidney function was 110%. Since then these have been his creatinine results - (range 0.60 - 1.35mg-dl) 11/2015 - 1.33 1/2016 - 1.22 10/2016 - 1.39 12/2016 - 1.29 5/2017 - 1.37 All other results with the panel are normal. My question is - are these fluctuations anything to be concerned about? His diet hasn't changed, all he drinks is water so he can't be dehydrated (same amount all the time), exercise hasn't changed either.
The laboratory values that you report for the serum creatinine on your husband are not different from each other. These values are within normal laboratory variation for the serum creatinine test. 67 more words
I have a concern in regards to protein supplements in tube feeding. I have a cousin on tube feeding due to cardiogenic shock and acute kidney injury. Hemodialysis (daily once) since yesterday. He is put on Nepro high protein supplement every hour with 30cc. Question: post dialysis should he be put on low protein and only during dialysis on high protein or until daily hemodialysis, should he be on Nepro high protein?
Nepro is the brand name for a high protein and low potassium with low phosphorus tube feeding supplement. It is designed for patients who are acutely ill. 67 more words
I was just told I have stage 4 kidney failure but when I was at the hospital I was dehydrated, so my question is can being dehydrated cause the counts being off showing that I have kidney failure?
My kidney function is 22%. Doctors say dialysis if it drops below 10%. What can I do to prevent function from dropping further?
