Hi there ...

Thank you for your question ....

Please let me know , are you concerned about your Creatinine levels ?

Are you Diabetic ?


Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I guess so about the creatinine level but also what it means in relation to the other results
Expert:  Dr. Abid replied 1 year ago.

Thanks for info ...

As you mentioned you have been admitted twice for biventricular failure and your creatinine levels are upper limit of normal range with normal potassium levels and other parameters , it is highly likely that because of poor kidney perfusion secondary to heart issue you have little deranged cretainine levels .

It would be ideal for you at this stage to have renal ultrasound to rule out primary kidney disease .

In the presence of normal other parameters with little deranged creatinine levels are not too much significant and I will also suggest you to recheck once Creatinine levels , as normal range also varies from lab to lab .

Regards ***** ***** luck .

Please leave positive feedback for me .

Thanks .
