Focal nodular hyperplasia lesions on liver. Blood work shows low creatinine levels. Cure?

I have been diagnosed with having several focal nodular hyperplasia lesions on my liver . I sometimes experience discomfort in that area. I recently did some blood work for insurance purposes and my results show my creatinine level low at 18.7 and my protien creatinine ratio at 0.22. I am concerned, can this indicate something serious? Thanks!

Hi there,

Thanks for your query.

Firstly, you seem to have mixed up creatinine and creatinine ratio values. Hence, I cannot offer any comments.

Life is incompatible at Blood creatinine level of 18.7!!

As far as the focal nodular hyperplastic lesions are concerned, are they ON the liver or inside the liver. BOTH are different conditions with different interpretations.

Please re-post your query in full details and correct values.

Or, consult your doctor who will examine you and prescribe appropriate treatment.
