Okay, I'm not sure what to make of these test results, can somebody please shed some light for me?
GLOM FILT RATE, EST 59
BUN/CREATININE RATIO 22
I'm a healthy 30 year old female with a minor history of kidney stones. The doctor did not mention a follow up test. I rarely take any medicines, but since the test was unexpected I did have a couple of beers the night before and ate that day. Could this have effected the results? Everything else was within a normal range.
A beer drink can affect a person’s kidney functions. A normal gfr is 60.A value below 60 can be an indication of kidney disease. It is normal for creatinine measurements and GFR to change from one measurement to other. I will advise you to get the test repeated after 2 weeks or so. Any test result should be correlated clinically. Discuss the test results with your doctor and keep me posted.
Best luck and regards!
