Question: Hello,

Given very normal BUN/Cr levels, is a GFR of 90 considered low for a healthy 24 year old male caucasian athlete?
This is during a ER visit for tachycardia, normal blood work and after urinating a lot (possibly a bit dehydrated) due to stress.

Your Renal function s normal not to be worried for .

hello
Thanks for query .

A GFR of 90 with normal Blood Urea Nitrogen and Serum creatinine can be considered to be normal and does not suggest any kidney disease .

Tachycardia that you had could be due anxiety or exercise related .

Dr. Shantharam, I am 53 yrs. old male Normotensive but suffering with NIDDM since 1987. BMI is 21. Incidentally the Serum Creatinine was detected to be 1.9 in the year 1995. (Case of Diabetic Nephropathy was excluded). Since then periodic renal function checking is being done. Now the Sr. Creatinine level is varying from 1.9 to 2.2. The Maintained BP is 130/80 mmHg. To delay the progression of the renal disease I have been asked to keep BP less than 125/75 mmHg. So I was taking Telmisertan 80 once for past 5 years. Now I have been advised to add Amlopdipine 2.5 once for past 2 weeks. The BP is not getting lowered further. For controlling the diabetes I am taking Gliclazide 80, 3 tablets per day. Kindly advise to protect my renal function from further deterioration. With best Regards, RK Saha Durgapur, West Bengal, India.
