I think you need to binge drink a few days in a row and then get tested....it should crash your test enough to get the script!
that's it bro. Genetic makeup has as much or more to do with lipids profiles then your
My hdl was in that range as well and i was eating what we consider to be a stellar diet. the balance of my lipid profile was excellent but the ratio's of overall lipid heath needed the HDL # over 40 (pretty sure).
Eventually after years of eating clean (sick of it) i expanded my diet to include things I'd not eaten often. Fries, sweets, fried food ... all in moderation but more.
I was very curious how my lipid profile would change.
It improved. HDL was low 40's. Ratio was perfect overall in the high 130's - 40's
Ate the same for 2 more years and the second blood draw post diet adjustment improved again!
So what did that tell me? Cutting out some foods entirely ~vs~ moderation of overall diet worked better for me.
Point being .. maybe expand your diet .. change things up for a while and retest.
Pretty sure I still have copies around..
I have been having high creatinine levels 1.5 and if it doesn’t go down she wants me to go to nephrologist to get kidneys checked. Anyone else have high creatinine levels.
There is a guy called "Steroid Doc" on youtube who cautions against all the different bad things the bodybuilding lifestyle can do to us in multiple episodes. He said all the stuff about kidneys ... and kidney tests ... that is in the complete post from Bigtex above. BUT, he also mentioned "cystatin" as being more indicative of what's really going on with our kidneys than the standard tests are. I got the impression this may be a test most doctors wouldn't order for you unless you coached them through "modern medicine" a bit.. . . There is supposedly a new creatinine-cystatin equation that is being used now that is much more accurate and is less altered by other medical conditions and issues . . .
That rawdeal is a clever bastard. When he quoted Bigtex above, he obviously knew that if he could lure Bigtex out of the woods the board would get a much better version of the talk about this relatively unknown Cystatin test. Mission accomplished. . . As rawdeal posted . . .
Is that what that's all about on the PrivateMD lab reports I use in lieu of doctors as much as I can ... wtf? I always wondered why they say the sample you submit means 2 different eGFR's depending on if you're Black or White. I guess what they're doing, sort of, is acknowledging what others here have said ... that muscle mass is one factor in calculating eGFR, and that this commonly used test may not be telling us what we think it is about our true kidney health.I will look at this more. I am also refusing to go to nephrologist but Cystatin sounds like a good approach. I told her that is I was black my Egfr would be much better because the formula assumes that black male would have more muscle mass than white male. What the hell
Thanks for information
