Creatinine rising not sure why.

Postby Alhb54 » Sun Jun 25, 2017 5:17 pm

Hello all. Im a bit nervous and afraid. 2 months ago my doctor noticed my creatinine was elevated at 1.26 She then sent me for a kidney ultrasound. The ultrasound showed clear, and kidney were functioning. Yet, urine still had a weird smell. She said it must be my prostate. She prescribed Bactrim for 2 weeks. This seem to help a lot, but about 2 weeks later, symptoms started to return. I had a another CMP panel done a few days ago, and it showed creatinine up to 1.5 now.
I dont understand, and really dont want my kidneys to fail. I have no high blood pressure or sugar. Can prostate cause a problem with the kidneys? I cant get in for another week. She told me that the ultrasound showed 2 normal kidneys and its gotta be my prostate. Ive been reading online and most enlarged prostate treatments are at least a month, some 2 months. I was antibiotics for 2 weeks. Was it to short a time? Can prostate enlargement have a impact on kidney function?

From what I have read-

It is now thought there is a connection between enlarged prostate and kidney problems.

In many cases if the prostate is dealt with kidney function reverts to normal.

One thing is certain, worrying, and speculation will not help to cure the problem.

Best wishes.
