Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 day ago):

  • Trying to find out if the drugs I've been taking have caused an increase in my creatinine level or not. I have a very high 2.5 level. After inputting the creatinine into the GFR equation it shows I have only 22% kidney function. Of course I'm nervous because this is stage 4 kidney disease. Wondering if I need to come off my drugs for depression & mood or change them if they are causing inflated creatinine levels so I can try to get a true calculation of my kidney function. Also - if the medications are damaging my kidneys then I want to come off of them or change medications.
