Your urologist has done kidney scans and urinanalysis which are better tests to check for kidney disease than just the blood tests.
Hence, your urologist is correct in this circumstance.
The normal creatinine at your age should be between 0.6 to 1.3
My urologists did not do a scan. He did an X-Ray.
Is the scan better than the X-Ray, or are they the same
scan is better
request for a scan
Thank you. I will.
xrays are not good to look for any kidney damage
the normal bun cr ratio should be between 10-20 to 1
If I have the decease do you have any recommendations as to what foods to avoid and what supplements to stop taking. I was told to stop taking Calcium by a friend, but I think calcium is important for my age. What do you recommend.
in case of kidney disease, low potassium and phosphate diet is recommended.
Thanks. You have helped me more than anyone else. God bless you.
