3 months after one kidney removal, my dad's creatinine level is keep increasing from 1.9 to 3.5 now. and his EGfr is 26. we met our nephrologist last week and he said everything is on a boarder line now. just need to careful on his diet, blood pressure and diabetes. In the mean time, my dad bloood pressure and glucose level is normal. his energy is fine but there's some rashes all over his body. and we will see our nephrologist again in the next three months.

is anyone has the same problems same as my dad? any medicines or supplements can help with the creatinine level?

Davann,

Sorry to read about your Dad's numbers. At those numbers I would call back the nephrologist now (not 3 months from now) as to his suggestions. I would also talk to his GP. There are definately other factors besides Kidney Cancer here, one of which you mention as diabites.

Hello and sorry you have to post here.  I would use extreme caution using any type of supplement without first consulting his nephrologist.  He has to control is blood sugar & blood pressure, and eat right, which it sounds like he is doing.  I would keep a blood pressure log to help track those numbers.   

Here are couple questions you might ask his doctor:  (You may already have these answers)

1. How much water should he be drinking per day? 

2. Is it okay to exercise?  Exercise will help control blood glucose levels.

Good luck!

I just found out a few hours ago that my creatinine is increasing as well. (4 months after surgery). I dont knnow what it means yet or how to respond.

3 weeks ago I had my 90 days CT scan and it was high but ok. Today they couldnt give me onctrast because it was higher than 3 weeks ago

DAC677,

Higher cretinine levels are part  of the drill. Just hope they are not too high. While 1.2 is normal for 2 kidney folks , readings a few decimal points higher are often shared by our 1 kidney members. What is your creatinoine level?

I think my previous reading was 1.6

today when they tested prior to administering the contrast for the CT scan they just said higher than a few weeks ago and I didnt ask.

for such an assertive person in my normal walk of life i can be pretty meek at the hosptial.....lol

DAC677,

 

1.6 or a little higher is high, but part of the new normal. I have been there and done that although mine is now improved over the last 14 years to 1.4 or so.
