My father recently had congestive heart failure (just a week ago) and had a fever at the time. His lungs filled with fluid. A CT Scan was ordered and two days later, his kidneys stopped working. Now, four more days later, he is very tired and weak. The kidneys are very damaged but now working; however, the heart is extremely weak and further tests need to be done to diagnose the heart. The lungs are now clear. My father is in his late 80's and is close to being a diabetic. He has been on Coumadin and has a pacemaker. Are there other tests to help diagnose the heart condition that do not contain contrast which would further affect the kidneys?
Is it normal practice for a GP to not go over abnormal test results? I just got the online account for my care provider and looked up past test results and noticed my GFR was 50 (is now 58) and MPV at 8.4. Since 2013, after I had a bout of what GP said was IBS, both numbers have fluctuated a bit, but have been consistently low around the same range. Creatinine levels have been only as high as 1.2. My thyroid has been tested and appears fine. I'm 53 yr old female, 96 lbs and generally active with fitness training. My weight ranged from 103 to 108 up until 2013, and I've always had to watch it. I've been tired to the point of having to nap in between work appointments when time allows, and when I can't, I go to bed exhausted shortly after supper. I also have Lichen Planus in oral, nasal and vaginal areas. I've had pain on the left rib area about 4 inches down from my armpit, which comes and goes, for 2 years and the cephalic vein of my left hand inflames at times and is very painful. Sometimes my left arm from armpit down will go to sleep. I have low back pain with sacral Illiac issues on left side and a bad left shoulder. I'm not diabetic, nor do I have heart issues, and have very low BP. Could this be lupus? Or some other autoimmune disease that caused the CKD? Or a blood vessel disease? Is it possible to go from stage 3 to stage 2? My GP is not responding to inquiries. I know you can't diagnose, but would like your opinion on this.
I am not able to provide a specific diagnosis based on the information that you provide. I would need to see you and perform a complete history and physical examination. 52 more words
I will assume that the albumin to creatinine ratio that you describe is in the urine. Normal is less than 30. Hence, you may have diabetic damage to your kidney that results in excess albumin in the urine. 9 more words
I have eGFR if non-African am and eGFR if African am of 58 and creatinine serum of 1.13. What does it mean? I am 67.
I am a 37 year old man and weight is 73 kg and my height is 175cm. I have done a routine blood and urine test last week and my results are following: eGFR result is 74.9ml/min/1.73m^2 and my SCR serum creatinine level is 103umol/l. My Blood Pressure range 135/85, sugar levels FBS 5.35 MMOL/L, HbA1C- 6.2mmol/l, Blood Urea 4.2 mmol/l, Serum uric acid 449.0 umol/l. I just want to know whether my kidney is working normal or I have to start treatment for the kidney disease and seeking for your advice in this.
The information that you provide appears to be normal to me. The uric acid test that you describe may be slightly high, depending on the local laboratory normals. 9 more words
