Hello doctor,

In recent test reports, the following test values are out of range: Estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) is 83, uric acid is 7.9, serum creatinine is 1.13, BUN to serum creatinine ratio is 7.59, 25-hydroxyvitamin D (total) is 8.73, homocysteine is 30, iron 57.8, and red cell distribution width - coefficient of variation (RDW-CV) of 14.6. As far as symptoms are concerned, I am feeling body pains especially stiffened neck and pain in upper shoulders, feeling drowsy in the morning, slight burning sensation near the urinary bladder while passing urine, and a burning sensation in my left calf muscle and foot sometimes. There is a feeling of a lot of gastric problems especially while waking up in the morning and sometimes constipation. I am not on any medicine. The lab reports are attached for your review.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through your reports (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

  • It looks like the HbA1c (glycated hemoglobin) is on the higher side. Please get your fasting blood sugar and postprandial blood sugar done. The symptoms which you have can be explained by this deranged blood sugar.
  • I think this can be managed by a change in diet pattern and regular exercise.
  • I would suggest brisk walking for at least 150 minutes per week.

Thank you doctor,

What about the eGFR and the creatinine levels? Do these values have any impact on the functionality of the kidneys? Do you suggest any medicine for vitamin D deficiency?

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Your GFR (glomerular filtration rate) is fine. Just drink plenty of water. Get an ultrasound done and repeat the creatinine after one month. Also get an eye evaluation to look for diabetic retinopathy which can predict renal functions. For vitamin D deficiency, take Neuro D3 (Cholecalciferol) one capsule once a week for six weeks.
