Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic

Creatinine levels in the blood is an indicator of kidney function. The normal values for it in the blood is 0.5 to 1.0 mg/dL for women and 0.7 to 1.2 mg/dL for men. However, a male doing straneous physical activity may have higher levels, upto 2.0 mg/dL. However, I would advise you to consult a physician and have other renal function tests done too if required.

Hi!
welcome to healthcaremagic.com.Normal levels of creatinine range from 0.6 to 1.2 milligrams (mg) per deciliter (dl) in adult males and 0.5 to 1.1 milligrams per deciliter in adult .Muscular young or middle-aged adults may have more creatinine in their blood than the norm for the general population. . Certain drugs can sometimes cause abnormally elevated creatinine levels. Serum creatinine can also transiently rise after ingestion of large amount of dietary meat. Any condition that impairs the function of the kidneys will probably raise the creatinine level in the blood. The most common causes of longstanding kidney disease in adults are high blood pressure and diabetes mellitus.

I was hospitalized yesterday for very high bp (avg 190/115), did an ecg and had abnormal t-wave (inverted). They gave me a shot of nitro and iv injected beta blocker...a few hours later, bp returned to normal (128/82 avg). They released me, but I m going for a stress test in the next couple of days. Today my bp was high again this a.m., but is now averaging 90/60 or less, is this a sign of something serious going on, and should I get back to the hospital? I am a calm person, I d just rather be safe than sorry.

In the last few weeks, I have started having like a hot flash in my neck and checks; almost like I m blushing. I suffer with lack of energy, depression and anxiety (grieving loss of spouse of 30 years and mother) but this is a new situation. Currently being treated for high blood pressure with HCTZ in the morning and Norvasc at night. I take vitamin D (5,000 IU) daily along with CoQ10 and Xanax PRN. I m 64 and thought I had gone through menopause already. Could this be the anxiety/depression and if so, what supplement could I take to help. I have no insurance so medical testing is not an option at this time.
