Creatinine, Calcium and eGFR levels all off
« on: December 04, 2018, 09:10:55 am »
Hi everybody,

It's been a long time since I posted. I haven't been on the forum or FB for a while until recently.  So I am concerned, but not nervous.  This is the first time a lot of new things are high or low. 

First, my triglycerides  and cholesterol are 50-60 points above normal.  I would say this is from Remeron. My psychiatrist took me off of zoloft and put me on this.  It's working better than anything I've tried so I will talk to him about this.

Most or all are related to kidneys:

Calcium is .1 higher
eGFR is two numbers lower
Creatine is 14 points higher

What nutritional advice can anyone give me?

Also, I do exercise daily or try to walk at least a mile a day.

Thank you,

Cams

Yeah.

I mean the values are only slightly off range.

Is this just from 1 lab result or a couple over the span of 6 months/1 year?  I would not go changing diets or messing about over slightly off values on 1 set of labs you see.

I would wait see how it settles and if not consult the doctor.

Thank you,

That would do it lol. If it was me I would just wait and see what the next results are like and if they have leveled out again.
