My GFR is excellent and is checked every 6 months but my CC runs low. I'm 66, female, about 15 lbs overweight, very short and sedentary lifestyle. I have not eaten one bite of red meat or organ meats since colon cancer in 2009. I eat chicken, turkey and seafood probably 3 times a week but in small amounts.

5'1", 158 lbs, Serum C 0.96, GFR 62. Every other blood test result is excellent, but every 6 months my SC is low. I assume my low SC is the low protein diet and lack of exercise. Thoughts? My onc has never mentioned the results.

If Joe is correct, then the user should input their height instead of weight (and the 'ideal weight' calaculated and displayed with the answer

RE: "THIS IS WRONG by Joe on 05-15-15 7:53:32 PM

Comment:

This is incorrect information. This is the cockroft-galt formula... but the weight should be your IDEAL body weight. Your Ideal body weight is calculated by: Males: IBW = 50 kg + 2.3 kg for each inch over 5 feet. Females: IBW = 45.5 kg + 2.3 kg for each inch over 5 feet.

using your actual measured weight will result in WRONG information."

With this formula, when the body weight is more the creatinine clearance is better. Then how does weight reduction help to improve the renal function?

IBW is not considered in the formula, it doesn't work for a person overweight or kids, becareful while estimating the CrCl, there are some medical conditions that can increase or decrease CrCL. Recommend to talk to a Pharmacist or Dr. regarding labs results.Good luck.
