High Creatinine Average Bun

03/23/2011

Question:

I just had my physcial and my Doc said I am in great health not too question him but I am.

I am 58 years old, my Creatinine is 1.30 and has been for a while my bun goes between 16 and 19. I feel I should go to a kidney specialist. I have no history in my family of any problems, I am very healthy otherwise. My blood pressure up to a little while ago was 70/120 now 80/140 out of no where. So I am concerned since I have been in great health my whole life. Thanks

Answer:

Based on the information you provided and assuming your creatinine has been stable, and your urinalysis is normal, I do not see the need for a renal referral at this time.
