Elevated creatinine and B12; CKD stage 3

Postby crotwich on May 20th, 2015, 7:30 am

Hi guys,

Yesterday I received my routine blood tests results. I have elevated levels of:

1. Haemoglobin (15.4 g/dl, ref. 11.5-15)
2. Red Cell Count (5.16 10^12/l, ref. 3.8-4.8 )
3. B12 (818 ng/L, ref. 191-663)
4. Creatinine (114 umol/L, ref. 62-106)

It says on the report that my EGFR result is biochemically consistent with CKD stage 2. :? After I googled about CKD (e.g. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-cond ... n-20026778) I found that muscle twitching and cramps can also be associated with CKD. Any thoughts about this?

Also, did anybody else had elevated Creatinine or B12?

EDIT: The reference values I received were for females, so I deleted the values which are not elevated for males (like ferritin and CK). :)

Many thanks,

i would definitely have your doctor look into this potential correlation....if you have kidney problems, they need to be addressed as soon as possible. This is the first time that I have ever heard about this possible link....well at least that I can remember.

take care,
