Hi there, I am hoping someone can help me find out about Creatinine?
I took Jayden for a blood test to check Theo levels and Potassium and got a call from his Asthma nurse saying his Theo levels were 22.3 and his Creatinine level is 71. Theo I understand and after 4 hours of vomitting every 20 minutes yesterday I had already decided to miss his next dose just incase without the result. Creatinine is a new one for me and apart from knowing his level is raised and can have an affect on the kidneys I know absolutely nothing else. Might explain why he is peeing all day and night. Is it just the Theo that can cause this to raise or can steroids play a part in it too. We have had high theo levels before but not a mention of Creatinine so wondered if the Kenalog might be having an effect too.
One other point, I think I may have read somewhere that Viral infections can increase Theo levels. Is that right or did I dream that one up!?
Thanks Nikki and Jayden
